Remember Meat Loaf? Not the entrée but the singer Michael (nee Marvin) Lee Aday? When he had his first hits back in the ’70s, I liked them. Still do. Jim Steinman wrote the songs, as well as songs for other artists. You can usually tell a Jim Steinman song:
- “Read ‘Em and Weep” (Barry Manilow)
- “Making Love Out of Nothing at All” (Air Supply)
- “Total Eclipse of the Heart” (Bonnie Tyler)
- “It’s All Coming Back to Me Now” (Celine Dion)
Yeah, that guy. Now you know why those songs sounded like Meat Loaf songs but weren’t.
Anyway, what’s on your mind? Got something to share? It’s Thursday Night Open Thread, and your turn to run things.
