simplicimus: Bonnie Tyler/Jim Steinman collaborations were pretty good.


I only accidentally learned a few years ago that "Total Eclipse of the Heart" was a Steinman tune. After knowing that and giving it a listen, I felt stupid for having not guessed it the first time I heard it. That song absolutely reeks of Jim Steinman. Though I could do without the whole "turn around bright eyes" bit, the rest of the song is very powerful.

/that same day I also learned that Bonnie Tyler's raspy voice was to due to some sort of health problem/surgery

That makes me sad that Meat Loaf would support a candidate that is anti-equal rights for women and LGBT folks.

That's my main problem with Romney and the people who vote for him - they think that it's more important to lower taxes for the wealthy than it is to ensure basic human rights for their fellow citizens.

simplicimus: I guess he's not working with Jim Steinman (again).


Steinman is Meat Loaf. You could put another singer with Steinman and still get very similar results, but Meat Loaf is nothing without Steinman.

Dude has a good voice, but he won't be writing a song like "Heaven Can Wait" anytime soon.

/Bat Out of Hell is still the only Meat Loaf album, in my opinion
//rest of it is dreck

Darth_Lukecash: So this is what happens when Meatloaf goes bad.


Nice. +5 Internets to you.

I like Meat Loaf, I think the over the top dramatics are fun and the music with Steinman is great. Hell, I think 'Paradise by the Dashboard Light' is one of the most lyrically clever songs out there. I just don't understand this endorsement...

He can endorse Mitt, that's fine, as long as he comes up with a rational reason. This 'most important election of all time' crap is stupid and misinformed. Not only that, it's an insult to people who were actually there for elections where everything really mattered. Sure, if Romney gets elected, he'll fark up everything Obama fixed, but this isn't a 'most important EVER' election, not by a long shot. Meat just seems to be reading straight from the cue cards here.

And what's up with the 'occasional actor' crap? He's in movies more often than a lot who automatically get listed as an 'actor' by default in stories like this.

Krymson Tyde: I like some of Meatloaf's music. I also like Megadeth and Ted Nugent, but I'm voting for Obama.


I can't get past Nugent's persona. Musically, he's fine in a cheesy 70s way, but like so many other 70s acts, he's so much about the image. It's like KISS- their music isn't anything particularly special, just serviceable party-rock. But they have staying power because of their ridiculous image. Except their image is kinda funny and entertaining. Nugent's image is a little discomfiting and honestly, learning that his image and his real personality are roughly the same thing is really depressing.

loveblondieo: This is the most important election in the history of the United States," Meat Loaf explained. "Because there has storm clouds come over the United States. There is thunderstorms over Europe. There are hail storms--and I mean major hail storms--in the Middle East. There are storms brewing through China, through Asia, through everywhere... I want you to know there is one man who will stand tall in this country and fight the storm and bring the United States back to what it should be. Gov. Mitt Romney!"

What happened to you Meatloaf?


Meat's seriously off the wagon again, and as a Fan I say with some regret I don;t think he'll survive his latest relapse

I was more bothered by the comment Romney made shortly after, paraphrasing "There are good Democrats that love this country, Republicans that love this country, Americans that love this country..."

It had a very, "most Democrats don't love this country" sound to it. And this was him talking about being bipartisan...

More important than 1800, 1828, 1860, 1876, and 1932?

topcon: I always love it when entertainers endorse a candidate. The people who are rabidly supporting the other side claim they hate his music and always have, despite the fact they might even own an album or two. Then the people who are voting for the candidate the celebrity supports mysteriously become lifelong fans and start talking about their concert experiences.

I'm sure the retards on Democratic Underground and Free Republic are playing out this scenario right now.


I like some of Meatloaf's music. I also like Megadeth and Ted Nugent, but I'm voting for Obama. I don't give a shiat who actors, musicians, authors, etc. endorse, one doesn't affect the other.

He, like Dennis Miller, probably has a family to feed and did the math. You go where the money is. He may think he can be the next Ted Nugent.

Meat Loaf has explained, with a white board and by diagramming the sentence structure of each verse, what exactly "that" is. I'm looking for the video or image but failing.

And...so Mitt has the "Fat old white guy" vote. I was pretty sure this is not news.

The only thing I've seen Meatloaf involved in that didn't totally suck was Fight Club and he was the worst thing in that film.
