IRON MAIDEN Wasted Years (1986) (CASTLE RECORDS) (3 TRACKS) 320 Kbps MP3 SINGLE

Wasted Years (1986) (CASTLE RECORDS) (3 TRACKS)
Iron Maiden

Single Description:

"Wasted Years" is the fourteenth single released by Iron Maiden and the first from their 1986 SOMEWHERE IN TIME album. It''s the only song on the album that features no synthesizers. Released in 1986, it was the first single solely written by guitarist Adrian Smith. It reached number 18 in the U.K. Singles Charts.

The b-side "Reach Out" was sung by Adrian Smith, with regular lead singer Bruce Dickinson providing backing vocals. Smith also played bass and guitar on the track. This song was previously performed live by Nicko McBrain and Smith''s side project The Entire Population Of Hackney.

The demential song "Sheriff of Huddersfield" is about Iron Maiden manager Rod Smallwood''s decision to move to Los Angeles and buy a house in the Hollywood Hills. Apparently he had trouble adjusting to the L.A. lifestyle and often complained to the band about it. Interestingly Smallwood was unaware of the composition until it was released on the single, as the band had kept it secret from him. The song opens with the spoken line "We''re on a mission from Rod", a parody of the tagline for The Blues Brothers. Later, a similar comedy piece called "Bayswater Ain''t a Bad Place to Be", again mocking Smallwood, was released as an unlisted untitled b-side ("Space Station No. 5"''s epilogue) in the "Be Quick or Be Dead" single.
