Marvin Lee Aday alias Meat Loaf was een Amerikaanse rockzanger en acteur. Over de totstandkoming van zijn artiestennaam bestaan verschillende versies. Er is de versie waarin hij aangeeft dat het een idee van zijn vader was en een andere versie is te lezen in de biografie (To Hell And Back) dat hij deze naam dankt aan zijn honkbaltrainer. In 1984 veranderde hij zijn voornaam Marvin in Michael.

In 1975 was hij te zien in The Rocky Horror Picture Show in de rol van Eddie.

Twee jaar later bracht hij het album Bat Out Of Hell uit. Hij werkte vanaf 1972 samen met componist en tekstschrijver Jim Steinman aan dit album. Op dit album staat zijn grootste hit Paradise By The Dashboard Light. Het album ging meer dan 43 miljoen keer over de toonbank. Hierdoor is het een van de best verkopende albums ooit.

Hij was in 1992 te zien als Hoover in film Leap Of Faith. Hij speelde daarin de muzikaal leider van een rondtrekkende kerk. Leuk detail: wanneer hij de autoradio aanzet, komt Paradise By The Dashboard Light uit de luidsprekers. In 1997 was hij te zien als buschauffeur Dennis in de film Spice World.

In 1993 scoort hij een wereldhit met het nummer I'd Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That) van het album Bat Out Of Hell II: Back Into Hell. Hij sleepte er in 1994 de Grammy Award voor Best Rock Vocal Performance, Solo mee in de wacht.

Zijn volgende rol op het witte doek was die van Robert Paulson in Fight Club uit 1999. In 2006 bracht hij het derde deel uit van Bat Out Of Hell, getiteld The Monster Is Loose.

In april 2013 stopte Meat Loaf met toeren, omdat hij zich meer wilde focussen op zijn acteercarrière. Zijn dertiende en zijn laatste album genaamd Braver Than We Are verscheen in 2016.

Hij overleed op 20 januari 2022.



Songtekst

(spoken)
BOY: On a hot summer night,
would you offer your throat to the wolf with the red roses?
GIRL: Will he offer me his mouth?
BOY: Yes.
GIRL: Will he offer me his teeth?
BOY: Yes.
GIRL: Will he offer me his jaws?
BOY: Yes.
GIRL: Will he offer me his hunger?
BOY: Yes.
GIRL: Again, will he offer me his hunger?
BOY: Yes!
GIRL: And will he starve without me?
BOY: Yes!
GIRL: And does he love me?
BOY: Yes.
GIRL: Yes.
BOY: On a hot summer night,
would you offer your throat to the wolf with the red roses?
GIRL: Yes.
BOY: I bet you say that to all the boys...

(sung)
It was a hot summer night
and the beach was burning.
There was fog crawling over the sand.
When I listen to your heart
I hear the whole world turning.
I see the shooting stars falling
through your trembling hands.
You were licking your lips
and your lipstick shining.
I was dying just to ask for a taste.
We were lying together in a silver lining
by the the light of the moon.
You know there's not another moment
Not another moment
Not another moment to waste.

You hold me so close that my knees grow weak.
But my soul is flying high above the ground.
I'm trying to speak but no matter what I do
I just can't seem to make any sound.

And then you took the words right out of my mouth.
Oh it must have been while you were kissing me.
You took the words right out of my mouth.
Oh and I swear it's true,
I was just about to say I love you. (love you)
And then you took the words right out of my mouth.
Oh it must have been while you were kissing me.
You took the words right out of my mouth.
Oh and I swear it's true,
I was just about to say I love you. (love you)

Now my body is shaking like a wave on the water
And I guess that I'm beginning to grin.
Oh we're finally alone and we can do what we want to.
The night is young
And ain't no one gonna know where you
No one gonna know where you
No one's gonna know where you've been.

You were licking your lips
and your lipstick shining.
I was dying just to ask for a taste.
We were lying together in a silver lining
by the the light of the moon.
You know there's not another moment to waste.

And then you took the words right out of my mouth.
Oh it must have been while you were kissing me.
You took the words right out of my mouth.
Oh and I swear it's true,
I was just about to say I love you. (love you)

And then you took the words right out of my mouth.
Oh it must have been while you were kissing me.
You took the words right out of my mouth.
Oh and I swear it's true,
I was just about to say I love you. (love you) (fade out)
