Song That Inspired Me #10

I first heard this song one Thursday night in 1982 on BBC1's Top Of The Pops. It prompted me to buy the single (A Picture Vinyl) the very next day. It was my favourite Iron Maiden song for many years. Only being eclipsed by Wasted Years years later. This is the song which really got me into Iron Maiden, as I'd not been overawed by Paul Dianno's voice. The guitar work had always been my interest in Iron Maiden with instrumentals like Genghis Khan and Transylvania. With Bruce Dickinson at the helm I began to enjoy Iron Maiden. Though I have to concede Number of the Beast, his first album with them, is still the best.

The song is of course RUN TO THE HILLS
