2. Iron Maiden’s  “Transylvania”


Is it cheating to consider this a song about a city when the Transylvania region is better known as being the home of Dracula? Perhaps, but since the song’s an instrumental, that’s not really for us to say. And as we just pointed out above, Transylvania is a region, not a city, so before you pull out a globe and beat us about the head with it, at least listen to an awesome instrumental from the band’s first album that hinted at the potential they would reach on subsequent albums.
