Iron "May"-den #5

This might be my favorite track off of the legendary Killers album. I love the fast, frantic pace of Di'Anno's vocals on the chorus. The vocals are both punk sounding and pop sounding at the same time...very impressive. And the musicianship is of course top notch. This band accomplished more on their first 2 albums then a lot of bands do in their whole catalog. The lyrics are an early example of the band using an old horror movie as inspiration.

I couldn't find a clip of Paul singing it live, so this one from 1982's "Beast On the Road" tour feat. Bruce Dickinson will have to do. Enjoy "Murders In the Rue Morgue!"
