THE EARLY YEARS
“Remember Tomorrow” from Iron Maiden (1980)
A forgotten gem, the second track from Iron Maiden’s 1980 self-titled debut is the best song from the Paul Di’Anno era. Its prog structures — opening with eerie arpeggios before the big chords kick in — foreshadow the band’s future epics. Di’Anno isn’t in the same league as Bruce Dickinson, but he turns in a fine performance on this track. The Judas Priest influence is evident.
