Iron Maiden - Alexander the Great

The Road Travel CrewComment

This song actually taught me more about history than I got from school.  I had 2 Iron Maiden albums on cassette and I would listen to them non stop.  My walkman just kept flipping and I just kept listening.  I walked to the library one time listening to this and got my first history book on Alexander the Great.  One of the most interesting people in history.  I still read about the subject frequently.  I don't know how many people have began really looking into history because of the band but it was a point I remember even at around 14 years old I think.  This version has some video clips and the lyrics.  It's too good not to share, I hope it inspires you to go check out a book.  Or a wiki page at least.
