"Each song was scored on the readability of its lyrics using the Coleman Liau Index and the SMOG index, two algorithms used to determine the difficulty of school texts."


I don't know what those standards or indexes are, but I agree.

Whomever wrote Iron Maiden's lyrics was probably fairly well educated.

I'd like to see the full list of data. Wonder if they are on it.

And I think maybe the historical them are intelligent, but maybe the words and writing aren't complex.

That would be Steve Harris and Bruce Dickenson for the most part.

In the early days I think Paul Diano wrote a few songs.

The first free test website that google pulled up gave the Longest Day a score of 10.4 over all.

Alexander the Great was only 9.5

The Trooper came in at 8.2

Good luck giving the first two to any school kids these days.
