Top singles from the past
6 November 2023
The late imposing rock star MEAT LOAF (born Michael Lee Aday in Dallas, Texas)
will always be remembered for his 1977 mega-hit Paradise By The Dashboard Light
from his hit LP Bat Out Of Hell fully written by the late Jim Steinman.
But the champ of bombastic rock scored big time more than once.
With the 1993 high-powered ballad I’D DO ANYTHING FOR LOVE (BUT I WON’T
DO THAT’, also written by Steinman, he even surpassed the success of Paradise
By The Dashboard Lights. The melodramatic belter topped the US Charts 30 years ago today, on 6 November 1993. And was also numero uno in more than 25 other countries.
It featured on his 6th album Bat Out of Hell II: Back into Hell, with co-vocals by English songstress Lorraine Crosby.
