Default Meat Loaf has died aged 74

https://metro.co.uk/2022/01/21/meat-...d-74-15957970/

Sad news, I actually love some of his power ballads which just get bigger and bigger as the song goes off, the man had a heck of a voice

My favourite Meat Loaf song. Strangely enough I don't think I'd heard any of his stuff for absolutely ages then this song just came to me randomly the other day and I started listening to it again

Meat Loaf’s 1993 Number One single was there for 7 WEEKS back in 1993

But he first entered the UK Top 40 15 years early back in 1978, proving his longevity, scoring 17 top 40 singles between 1978-2006

RIP

A top ten single from 1981:
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=KSTIsZULYmY


With Cher , who today claimed she is ‘sorry’ to his family , and then rhetorically asked if it was ‘just her’ or ‘are many people in the arts dying each day nowadays’
Yes Cher, I’m afraid to tell you your friends from the 60s are now in their 70s and 80s , the typical life expectancy in the US being 76 for males and 80 for females

Why do people always say that? There's literally a whole list in the song that he says he won't do

Here they are :

forget the way she feels right now

forgive himself if they don't go all the way that night

do it better than he does it with her

stop dreaming of her every night of his life

see that it's time to move on

be screwing around

Pegging would make more sense.
