IRON MAIDEN Like You've Never Heard Them Before!

July 20, 2009

Austrian DJ/remixer DJ Schmolli's hilarious mash-up of IRON MAIDEN's "The Trooper" and THE MONKEES' "I'm A Believer" can be heard below.

DJ Schmolli has produced a number of other mash-ups, including "Hollaback Thriller Girl" (Gwen Stefani vs. Michael Jackson),"Jacko Breaks Free On Earth" (Michael Jackson vs. Queen vs. Belinda Carlisle) and "Justice For Billie Jean" (Justice vs. Michael Jackson vs. C&C Music Factory).

"The Trooper", IRON MAIDEN's ninth single and the second from their 1983 album "Piece of Mind", was released on June 20, 1983. The song is about the Battle of Balaclava in 1854 during the Crimean War, and is at least partially based upon Alfred Lord Tennyson's poem "The Charge of the Light Brigade", taking the viewpoint of one of the slain troopers, who, in the cover art, is perceived as a bald Eddie.
