Welcome back to Meat Loaf Monday! It’s been a few weeks, so I bet you’re suffering from some pretty harsh withdrawal symptoms. But fear not, because Dr. Sitzman’s got a hot Meat Loaf Injection for you:
Wow, what a great song! It’s not written by Jim Steinman (the guy who wrote many of Meat Loaf’s most famous songs), but it is written by Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx, which is also pretty cool. This is from a newer album, Couldn’t Have Said It Better, but the song is classic Meat Loaf video eye candy. Just look at his gestures and body language: it’s got sweeping arm movements, wagging fingers, closed-eye singing/bellowing, hurled chairs, and even the classic “shush” finger. And you get all that even if you mute the song. If you actually turn on the sound (very loud, hopefully), then you’re in for a treat.
For the first two minutes The Meat goes a bit nuts, as he is prone to doing, but as I said, only a bit. But then around the two-minute mark, Patti Russo jumps in with her Betty Rubble dress and uses her hooker boots to kick your ears in the nuts!!* Couple that with Queen-esque backup singers (wearing capes and gold lamé bikinis!) and Meat Loaf’s Black Trench Coat of Power, and you’ve got yourself the makings of a legendary video, my friend.
What else can I say? I guess I do indeed have the right to remain silent.
*If you ever wondered what your earlobes were for, now you know.
