[Song of the Week] No Prayer For the Dying (No Prayer For the Dying)
No Prayer For the Dying is our song of the week, how surprisingly released on an album with the same name! The song from 1990 was suggested by /u/Shalevdrakon. With the running time of 4 minutes and 22 seconds it falls in category of shorter songs, at least for Iron Maiden standards. It was written by Steve Harris and besides being included on the studio album, it's live performance was also featured on the From Fear to Eternity single release.
"This is a very introspective song, which combines soft acoustic verses with powerful choruses and instrumentals. Although its title may have been inspired by the 1987 film, the lyrics do not deal at all with the story line. Its topic is the familiar questions about the meaning of life, which the song doesn't attempt to answer. Instead, there is an uncharacteristic appeal to God for answers…"
