New Meat Loaf song.



I know that not everyone admires Meat Loaf, but I am a huge fan of his & Jim Steinman's, and I have loved this song for years (even though it was performed by the highly unlikeable Celine Dion previously). I have always loved his crazy gothic-themed videos, and this one is no exception... hope you like it, because in this day and age of videos that only feature have half-naked chicks gyrating and guys driving around in ridiculously over-priced cars it's nice to see a music video with a plot line. I write way too many run-on sentences.

Enjoy!

I just downloaded the whole album a couple hours ago. Can't wait to listen to it, though I'm not going to get my hopes up.

I did enjoy watching the great Meatloaf psycho-trucker films - Breakdown and Blacktop lastnight.

The VH1 Story Tellers episode with Meat Loaf from awhile back is pretty damn good, too.

Just listened to III and it's hard to believe he's only months away from hitting sixty years old.

His last two albums had some moments that seemed more forced than Meat of twenty years ago, but you have to admit that he's stayed true to his own thing better than almost anyone else does.

Glad I checked the blog today or I would have forgotten to check this out! :)

I'm a sucker to those Meatloaf over the top videos.

My fav was that one where he's that beauty and the beast character. It's shot the same way in that over the top opera style.

Hilarious.
