Don't know if there's a misunderstanding here (probably by me), 'cause I love Catherine Wheel and am not ashamed of that, but I'm not a big Maiden fan so I don't like making the connection (they're a good band, I'm just not into metal).

I didn't like Def Leppard until only recently, when their pop sensibilities and catchy-as-hell power choruses caught up with me. I love a good arena-ready chorus. Good harmonies, too.

Photograph
Pour Some Sugar On Me
Rocket
Armageddon It (stupid song, good chorus)

I'm not a fan of 80s power ballads, so I always skip past those.

Yeah, power ballads are bad. And Love Bites is one of the worst.

What about Rock of Ages and Foolin'? Those were SOLID.

Hysteria is like the Thriller of light metal, there were like 6 singles from that album, and another 3 that could have been. Pretty impressive from a pop standpoint. Animal was the third single, very catchy, and Women, the first single and leadoff track, had that cool comic book video:

Rock of Ages is okay, but not my favorite. Not a big fan of Fuh-fuh-fuh-FOOLIN'!

I forgot Animal. That one's pretty good, too.

I just picked up a used copy of Van Halen's "Best of Both Worlds." Not a fan of most of the Sammy Hagar stuff (save one or two songs), but I wanted those good, old-fashioned classic VH tracks.

I had about 25-30 Iron Maiden posters, covering every bit of space on my walls.

My favorites:




A politically-conscious song about the dangers of nuclear proliferation.






Gotta love the Star Wars/Clint Eastwood mixed homage.
One my favorite bands Powerslave, Somewhere in Time and Seventh Son of Seventh Son are fucking masterpieces

Except, I only listen to metal and heavy stuff (mostly 80's)

He's also an airline pilot, he actually flies the plane of the group for the Somewhere Back in Time Tour

I saw that tour. There was this 10-ft tall Eddie that came out on stage in the sci-fi costume and fired a laser gun at Bruce.

AWESOME.

Nothing to be ashamed of there! It was a brilliant album; his last brilliant album, but awesome all the same!

I did not realize you were referring to the connection....just thought you meant that even though you love CW, you forget that you do...and CW are light years beyond needing to be ashamed of, agreed.

We're on fire.

We're set on U2, Madonna, and Michael. If you're an Elton John, Prince, and Justin Timberlake fan as well, I just might marry you.

Usually the mentioning of Elton John automatically summons Vintage Punk.

Someone Saved my Life Tonight



But, he's another performer that does not fall into the "ashamed" category.

He's brilliant. The songwriting team of him and Bernie Taupin is perfect. He's definitely on my short list of artists I must see perform live.
