Phantom of the Opera (7:07)

Cover of Iron Maiden

From Iron Maiden and 43 other releases

“Phantom of the Opera” is a song from Iron Maiden’s debut album Iron Maiden. It was written by Steve Harris. It is the fourth track from the original US & UK album releases, and was the fifth track from the remastered 1998 release CD. It is based on the French novel The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux. The song is also a fan favorite, and is often played at the band’s concerts.
In the United Kingdom, the song is best known for its use in the Lucozade commercial in the 1980’s. In 2008, using the intro like the original, it was parodied for a TV teaser trailer for I’m a Celebrity… Get Me out of Here!

New Eden covered this for the 1998 compilation A Call to Irons: A Tribute to Iron Maiden.

In the Iron Maiden computer game Ed Hunter, this plays during Level 1, London.
