Stuck In My Ear: Jim Steinman / Meat Loaf – Rock And Roll Dreams Come True

Stuck In My Ear: Jim Steinman / Meat Loaf – Rock And Roll Dreams Come True

Two versions of the same song. Both produced by Steinman.

Consider:

“Once upon a time was a backbeat, Once upon a time all the poets came to life. And the Angels had guitars even before they had wings. If you hold on to a chorus you can get through the night”

Or:

“You’re never alone, ’cause you can put on the ‘phones, and let the drummer tell your heart what to do.”

I like the Steinman version better. Better drums, better piano. The voice, (while it’s not Steinman, it’s Rory Dodd)┬ánot better. Must be played loud.

Very loud.

The interpretive dance, is straight out of an episode of Fame! from 1983.

A very BAD episode.

The Meat Loaf version: Better vocals, better video production. A somewhat famous actress. Don’t forget that both Meat Loaf and Steinman have a Musical Theater background.┬áMaybe some show tunes would be in order!

Or not.
