I would do anything for love (but I wont do that) - Meatloaf


Recommended Posts

Okay, he's named after the nations number one Wednesday night home cooked dinner, and he's got a history of taking forever between album releases, but you've got to give it to Meatloaf: he really puts his heart and soul into his songs.  And with legendary song writer Jim Steinman penning the lyrics and those awesome orchestrations (wicked fast piano, power chord guitar and just a pure respect for what the human voice is capable of), how could you go wrong.  The video for this song has all sorts of vampiric themes and a sense of loss, regret, passion and devotion.  The extended ending, if you can find it, gives me chills.

OK, here we go, we got a real pressure cooker going here
Two down, nobody on, no score, bottom of the ninth
There's the wind-up, and there it is
A line shot up the middle, look at him go
This boy can really fly
He's rounding first and really turning it on now
He's not letting up at all, he's gonna try for second
The ball is bobbled out in the center
And here's the throw and what a throw
He's gonna slide in head first
Here he comes, he's out
No, wait, safe, safe at second base
This kid really makes things happen out there
Batter steps up to the plate
Here's the pitch, he's going
Amd what a jump he's got
He's trying for third
Here's the throw
It's in the dirt, safe a third
Holw cow, stolen base
He's taking a pretty big lead out there
Almost daring them to pick him off
The pitcher glances over, winds-up and it's bunted
Bunted down the third base line
The suicide squeeze is on
Here he comes, squeeze play, it's gonna be close
Here's the throw, here's the play at the plate
Holy cow, I think he's gonna make it

Stop right there
