We've had a parade of softer rock suggestions, so time for something more palatable.

My vote is for Aces High – that is likely gaming related too if you're imaginative in the slightest.

I'll also seed with:
Number of the Beast
Run to the Hills
Can I Play with Madness?
The Trooper
2 Minutes to Midnight

Lou from BSM29 May 2012 3:29 p.m. PST

Run to the Hills… which is also gaming related!!!

Beowulf Supporting Member of TMP Fezian29 May 2012 3:31 p.m. PST

The trooper.

Beowulf Supporting Member of TMP Fezian29 May 2012 3:32 p.m. PST

To Tame a Land, also. Great song!

ComradeCommissar29 May 2012 3:33 p.m. PST

Hallowed Be Thy Name

redmist112229 May 2012 4:02 p.m. PST

All good, but really like:

Running Free, Power Slave, Stranger in a Strange Land…too many to add…


darthfozzywig Supporting Member of TMP29 May 2012 4:09 p.m. PST

Flash of the Blade

79thPA Supporting Member of TMP29 May 2012 4:14 p.m. PST

The Trooper and Run to the Hills.

Lord Hypnogogue29 May 2012 4:16 p.m. PST

Run to the Hills.

Personal logo etotheipi Sponsoring Member of TMP29 May 2012 4:23 p.m. PST


But for TMP themed songs … Where Eagles Dare and Ghengis Khan. Most of the old songs are about war. The Trooper is about the Crimean War, my fave conflict to study. Even Powerslave is about the conflict between Osiris and Sutekh.

Running Free is a fun song to play.

DinOfBattle229 May 2012 4:44 p.m. PST

All of you have made EXCELLENT choices! You can hardly go wrong with any Maiden tune.

To add to the list:
Flight of Icarus (Ancients)
Die with Your Boots One (Plains War)
Invaders! (Vikings!)
Sea of Madness
Wasted Years
The Longest Day (Normandy beaches)

Up the Irons!

pigbear29 May 2012 5:21 p.m. PST

Favorite by far… Prowler.

I'll vote for Alexander the Great too.

whill429 May 2012 5:27 p.m. PST

Run to the Hills

Personal logo mrwigglesworth Supporting Member of TMP29 May 2012 5:32 p.m. PST

Oh man I just cant pick one! Just so many I cant do it.
I guess if I had just one it would be Rime Of The Ancient Mariner

Reislaufer29 May 2012 5:34 p.m. PST

Aces High

Pictors Studio29 May 2012 6:17 p.m. PST

That is a very hard choice. There are so many really good Iron Maiden songs.

Dance of Death would be up there.

So would Satellite 15 . . . The Final Frontier.

Actually it would be impossible for me to pick a favourite. I could probably give you a favourite from each album.

Ironwolf29 May 2012 6:40 p.m. PST

Run to the Hills.

DerKrampus29 May 2012 6:56 p.m. PST

Run to the Hills- no contest!

JimSelzer Supporting Member of TMP29 May 2012 8:40 p.m. PST

almost any one of them

btw Number of the beast was selected as the best british album released in QE2's 60 year reign. Beat the beatles and the stones

Grimmnar29 May 2012 10:11 p.m. PST

Too many choices. And my head is hurting way too bad to decide now. Many many choices. Like all that have been mentioned above. And i am sure i will like the ones mentioned below as well. :-)


Captain Swing29 May 2012 11:03 p.m. PST

Great suggestions that I agree with at certain times of day, but I'd also add in The Wicker Man.

earthad30 May 2012 12:53 a.m. PST

pigbear30 May 2012 1:50 a.m. PST

Where was my head, I didn't mean Prowler, I was thinking of Phantom of the Opera. Thanks for waking me up andyfb.

Like the way Run to the hills sounds but will go for The trooper

freewargamesrules30 May 2012 8:46 a.m. PST

Used to be Run to the Hills but now superseded by When The Wild Wind Blows

yorkie o130 May 2012 10:05 a.m. PST

All of them, far to many great tunes to just pick 1

religon30 May 2012 10:45 a.m. PST

Last warning!

If someone doesn't beat me to it, T-Rex is next.

Uesugi Kenshin Supporting Member of TMP30 May 2012 10:47 a.m. PST

Aces High,
Run to the Hills,

hurrahbro30 May 2012 12:15 p.m. PST
