Running Free Lyrics - Iron Maiden

Review The Song (1)

(Steve Harris/Paul Di'anno)

Just sixteen, a pickup truck, out of money, out of luck.
I've got nowhere to call my own, hit the gas, and here I go.

I'm running free yeah, I'm running free.
I'm running free yeah, Oh I'm running free.

Spent the night in an L. A. jail, and listened to the sirens wail.
But they ain't got a thing on me, I'm running wild, I'm running free.


Pulled her at the Bottle Top, whiskey, dancing, disco hop.
All the boys are after me, and that's the way it's gonna be

The band's first release. It was released in February of 1980 and was well recieved by the critics, however, the song was never charted. From it's classic Harris intro to the ridiculously over-the-top youth-gone-wild lyrics and Paul Di'Anno's untamed bark, 'Running Free' is one song all youthful metal fans (no matter what age, nowadays) will recall as a genre - and epoch - defining moment. Genious, in a simple way, even if it didn't have the slightest hint of the epic musical progression to come.

A defining heavy metal single of the era, 'Running Free' was many fans' initiation into Iron Maiden, and by extension to metal itself. Venom ushered in a new era with 'In League With Satan' in 1981 and Metallica with the compilation track 'Hit The Lights' two years later in 1983 - both genre-defining releases, but neither quite as important in terms their cultural impact as 'Running Free'

Nathan - Good song. 7.5/10
Bunsle - Oringinal - Okay. Not bad, a bit simplere, but not as good as Live After Death where Bruce Dickinson splits the crowd in half and have them at their own noise competition. 7/10
