Top 25 Iron Maiden Choruses

If you are a fan of big, catchy, sing along choruses (and an Iron Maiden fan) this list is for you!

How important is a chorus to a song? Does a good chorus make a good song? Can a great chorus make a song great? Wikipedia provides a good article on choruses; here is a tidbit:

The use of refrains is particularly associated with where the verse-chorus-verse song structure typically places a refrain in almost every song. The refrain or chorus often sharply contrasts the verse melodically, rhythmically, and harmonically, and assumes a higher level of dynamics and activity, often with added instrumentation. Chorus form, or strophic form, is a sectional and/or additive way of structuring a piece of music based on the repetition of one formal section or block played repeatedly.

With a chorus now defined, I will move on to the main reason for this post: to present the Top 25 Best Iron Maiden Choruses! Of course this list is very subjective, as all music opinion is. What I tried to do with this list is present the true best choruses of Iron Maiden’s career.

How to use this post:

  1. Click on the “chorus start” link to be taken to a Youtube video of the song
  2. The song will start playing right at the part in the song where the chorus is
  3. Rock out and sing along!

Something to note: when I started writing this list in prep of this post, I realized that most of the choruses I was choosing for the list were indeed from songs that had been singles. Interesting! In doing further research on Wikipedia, I came across the album covers of a lot of the singles from Iron Maiden’s discography. Most of these I had never seen before; only being familiar with the full studio album covers. This is a subtle feature of this post and a few other Iron Maiden-related posts I have done.
