    General CommentGreat Instrumental. one of my favorute instrumentals. I don't know why this was the last instrumental of Maiden, but this is really epic. Powerslave was their beast album to me.

    General CommentThis is my fave instrumental they've done. When I hear it, I can always imagine a fight or a duel (maybe a slight link to another track on Powerslave called The Duellists).

    General CommentThe intro sounds exactly the same as the duelist's, save the '1, 2, 1234' I personally think it reflects the aftermath of 2 minutes to midnight, Big 'Orra = Big Horra/ Big Aura.

    General Commentugh. It Means Loss for words, BIG Horror! in a cockney accent. Iron Maiden is not satanist.

    Song MeaningLosfer Words, as correctly pointed out, is most likely "Loss for words," in Cockney transliteration.

    The second part is more likely in my opinion to be "Begorrah," an Irish interjection for astonishment or amazement.

    The likelihood of it being Big Horror is rather low, but not impossible.

    General CommentConsidering Steve Harris's wife, "Lorraine," was pregnant at this time with his child, I kind of figured he was at a "loss for words" at the wonder of being a father. I figured "'Orra" was short for (L)Orra(ine).

    Or, maybe not?

    Great piece of music, either way.
