IRON MAIDEN’S BRUCE DICKINSON REVEALS SONGWRITING TIP

10/11/2012

Iron Maiden frontman Brice Dickinson has revealed that the inspiration for the band’s hit song, “Run to the Hills,” was none other than legendary crooner Frank Sinatra’s version of “My Way.”

Blabbermouth reports that Dickinson was giving the keynote speech at the IBM Smarter Business event at the Stockholm, Sweden.

He finished off his speech with explaining why the band’s song "Run to the Hills" became a hit single.

"It's all in the rising sixth," Dickinson said, explaining that he decided to study the structure of  “My Way” when he realized it was the most recorded song in pop history.
