* "Empire of the Clouds", sad as it is, is still a touching tribute to the 48 killed in the horrific R101 crash and the final lyrics after the saddest part of the song imply that the victims are watching, now safe and unburnt, in the afterlife as tributes are made and the court of inquiry is held.

The music also switches to a very gentle and actually rather upbeat piano piece, suggesting that the 48 victims have managed to find peace.

*** On the topic of Blood Brothers, at the Ullevi Stadium gig in 2016, the audience [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K4nQSAmdqk0 cheered for four minutes straight]] after a performance of "The Number of the Beast", robbing Bruce of his ability to make his obligatory speech, rendering him speechless and standing on stage, smiling and even ''wiping [[ManlyTears tears of]] [[TearsOfJoy joy from his eyes]]. He then just introduced the song, and during the song, reminded the audience of just how memorable of a night it will be for him. Even better, four minute chants ''are a regular occurance at said venue whenever they play'', with the same thing happening before the same song 5 years prior.

* When a young fan was being beaten up in a Luxembourgh gig in 2014, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9EwJv3OK1Ys#t=143 Bruce calls his attacker out]] ''immediately''. Do ''not'' mess with the fans when Bruce is around.

* "Wildest Dreams" from "Dance Of Death". An amazingly upbeat and powerful song about beating depression and finding new happiness and meaning in your life.

* The band playing a concert in El Salvador. A country where several people have to live with violence and corruption every day and in fear. To say a good number of El Salvadorean fans were more than happy by news of this is an understatement.

* Bruce, all in one week, visiting disabled children at Nordoff Robbins' music therapy centre, and saving an African airline from going under. Truly an amazing soul.

* "Como Estais Amigos". Doubly so if you're Argentinian. This simple little ballad (from the rather maligned Virtual XI, no less) wouldn't be all that remarkable if not for its lyrical content, where the band reaches out to Argentina to put the Falklands/Malvinas issue behind, and to unite as brothers. They encourage both Argies and Brits to leave all their hate behind, and to mourn the dead in peace. Truly beautiful.
