I probably would have included Bruce's version of "Sign Of The Cross" but I was sticking to songs written after he had returned.

I really think the song 'Age of Innocence' is one of my favorite Maiden songs of any era. It's amazingly catchy.

Age Of Innocence is a great song indeed. What Blaze songs has Bruce done? I have 1 or 2 on the box set...

Sign Of The Cross, The Clansman, Lord Of The Flies and Man On The Edge are the only ones I'm familiar with, Leo could confirm or deny that.

Akeldama got it - Futureal was the only other Blaze-era song they played live. That's the only one on on any official CD (live or comp), it was added to the Wicker Man CD single.

Bruce just nails all the Blaze tracks! Of course, having Adrian as 3rd guitar on the tracks helps too!

Top 5 Bon Scott era AC/DC songs:

1. What's Next To The Moon
2. Overdose
3. Let There Be Rock
4. Touch Too Much
5. Little Lover

I won't be surprised if I change mine, the last two that is.

Good choices, SD. Ride On shoulda been on my list. Overdose has so much bad assness going on even before Bon starts singing! That main riff Mal plays and when Ang kicks in with the reverse of that riff? Effin' classic!

yeah, that's the same reason I've always loved Overdose. Live in the studio is always a good thing.

Well, I can't participate in the Maiden one, I haven't heard the newest one, and don't remember two of the others well enough.

Whew, AC/DC what a hard one, I'll try anyway:

1. Down Payment Blues
2. Touch Too Much
3. Overdose
4. Jailbreak
5. Ride On

Thanks Ack! Some of those are subject to change, but Down Payment Blues is easily my favorite track. I feel like it's my theme haha.

Yup, I can agree w/the Down Payment Blues comment. I've always dug the lyrics, especially ,"doin' nothin' means a lot to me."

Powerage was a more serious record than they ever did w/Bon but it had more puns and tongue-in-cheek lyrics. Great album.

I'm not going to put them in any order, because it's near impossible for me as well

Goodbye Blue Sky
Time
Pigs
Wish You Were Here
Echoes

If I was feeling a bit more adventurous, I definitely would have put Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast
