That would be either Iron Maiden or Gamma Ray. Both have a song with the same name. I think the Maiden one (from their album "Somewhere In Time") is the better of the two.

That song did not appear on Somewhere in Time.

It is interesting all this song title stuff. What I personally think is curious are the lyrics to Bonnie Tyler's song "Getting so Excited", which appears on Jim Steinman's produced "Faster than the Speed of Night Album" (tho the song is written by Alan Gruner:

The music’s dark begins to get blacker
People start to move towards each other
Some hold back some peel off the layers
The atmosphere erupts with the drunken liberators
Walls flare up with animated shadows as dancers jump like emancipated jackals
It won’t be long till the first couple’s clich? she turns to him to say
I’d do anything for love, but I won’t do that!
She’s getting so excited
They’re trashing it up
She’s getting so excited
Excited

The song title is actually spoken by another woman during the song. Now that makes me wonder, did Steinman put it in or did he use the title? Also Motorhead had an album titled "Everything louder than everything else" released in 1990. Tho I suppose anyone can come up with that title. Much like "Heaven can Wait" Interesting anyways I think.

Apparently Steinman has put several lines from his songs in other songs! Can't give you any more examples other than the one you just gave!

Think of them as "easter eggs".

Actually, that woman is Jim.

And on Deep Purple's 1972 album "Made In Japan" the phrase "everything louder than everything else" can be heard when someone in the band asks if some instrument can be turned on louder in the monitor-mix.

The line Tyre Tracks and Broken Hearts makes an appearance in quite a few songs I believe.
