22 Acacia Avenue by Iron Maiden

Album: The Number of the BeastReleased: 1982
  • This is the second song in the Charlotte the Harlot saga - the first is "Charlotte the Harlot," the third is "Hooks In You" and the fourth is "From Here To Eternity." Charlotte is a hooker you can meet on 22 Acacia Avenue, and this song describes her life on the job. (thanks, Ryan - Bethany, OK)
  • On the cover of the album Somewhere in Time, the band's mascot Eddie is standing on "Acacia Avenue." In one of the windows, you can see Charlotte.

The true Charlotte the Harlot (from the first album) was written by Dave Murray, Not Adrian Smith, 22 Acacia Ave was originally a rough draft of "Countdown" from Smiths old Band Urchin. at least he tells her to stop all that screwing and pack up her bags and come with me (pre - Pretty woman).Richard Harris - Bc Canada

In a later part of the song one of Charlottes patrons is tring to convince here to quit because of the risk of getting an STD and also to consider the fact that the older she gets the less desireable she will beJordan - St.catharines, On
