I have got a 100 pound argos voucher…?



“The Trooper” is a song written by Iron Maiden bass player Steve Harris. It is Iron Maiden’s ninth single, and the second from their 1983 album Piece of Mind. The single 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 coverart, is perceived as a bald Eddie. It is known for the galloping triplet sound of its bass and electric guitar, as well as its catchy and memorable riff, and is a crowd favorite at concerts.

At one point, Tipper Gore paints ‘RATED X’ on a cannonball; this is a mocking reference to Tipper’s involvement in the Parents Music Resource Center which successfully attempted to add warning labels to various records – many of them heavy metal – that they deemed inappropriate. The first guitar solo in the studio version was performed by

    Store vouchers are not as safe as cash. If the store goes under you lose your money. Argos are probably in a strong position but I would be inclined to spend it rather than lose it.

    I would get a games console but then I think getting a laptop would be good. I would wait until I really needed something.

    laptop,
    I am right in thinking you already have a tv, as you need it to play your console on, there is no point in 2 consoles. (:
    hope this helped
