Story Songs - M: Meatloaf


When it comes to story songs, I think Meatloaf and Jim Steinman helped write the book! These sagas are EPIC. Many clock in at more than eight minutes. I love the use of competing male and female vocals to tell the story! Plus...they're almost better in parody. :)

  6. YES. Great songs. I grew up listening to Meatloaf. I think by the time I was 6 or 7 I knew all the lyrics to all the songs on Bat Out of Hell. Now as an adult, I'm like 'my parents let me listen to this??' lol
