22 Acacia Avenue

by

Iron Maiden



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

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.

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 be

Writing with Phil Lynott, Scott saw their ill-fated frontman move to a darker place in his life and lyrics.
Peter LordPeter Lord
You may not recognize his name, but you will certainly recognize Peter Lord's songs. He wrote the bevy of hits from Paula Abdul's second album, Spellbound, plus a collection of other classics for the likes of Aftershock, Ali and Goodfellaz.

The "A Thousand Miles" singer on what she thinks of her song being used in White Chicks and how she captured a song from a dream.

Just like Darrin was replaced on Bewitched, groups have swapped out original members, hoping we wouldn't notice.
