Song of the day: Meat Loaf- Bat Out Of Hell


Looks pretty frightening, doesn’t it? Well, this song has quite a history. It was released for the first time in 1979, as a single for the album Bat Out Of Hell, which was released in 1977. In 1993, the song was re-released. In the UK it would be number 15, in the US number 45. It was inspired on the dramatic songs Jim Steinman used to listen to, such as Leader Of The Pack by the Shangri-Las and Tell Laura I Love Her. Steinman then wanted to create a car-crash song which was worse than everything that has been written till then. At the end of the recording session, Steinman kept complaining that he wanted a motorcycle, so the guitarist finally gave him one. Enjoy
