Produced by Martin Birch. As the sun breaks above the ground An old man stands on the hill As the ground warms to the first rays of light A birdsong shatters the still. His eyes are ablaze See the madman in his gaze. The myth of Icarus, who flew out of the Labyrinth wearing wax wings but plunged to his death after flying too close to the Sun, is retold in a way that resembles teenage rebellion.

Complete your Iron Maiden collection. The 5th disc in this collection joins together the Flight of the Icarus single with The Trooper, both released in 1983, and probably a lot more sought after for the inclusion of the cover songs, though both of the A-sides are classics, especially "The Trooper". But if you've longed for the Bruce Dickinson-fronted cover of Montrose's "I've Got the Fire", here it is in stereo, repressed from the Flight of Icarus single
Flight Of Icarus" was the first Iron Maiden single featuring drummer Nicko McBrain, who replaced Clive Burr. This was one of the few Maiden songs Steve Harris had no hand in writing. Bruce Dickinson and Adrian Smith composed it and wrote the lyrics. Steve Harris: "It's a really good song but we much prefer it live. We tend to play it a little bit faster live. Looking back on it now we feel we could have played it at the faster speed on the album. This little extra touch gives it a bit more fire. If you're counting solos, this is Dave (Murray)
