Happy June, everyone! It’s time for another edition of Battle of the Bands.
BATTLE OF THE BANDS (BOTB), hosted by Far Away Eyes (who recently opted out. We’ll miss you FAE! Thanks for all the great posts.) and StMcC Presents Battle of the Bands, is where you listen to different recordings of the same song and vote for the one you like best. Two “Battles” per month, on the 1st and 15th. Votes will be tallied and posted the following week. (See below for further details.)
Inspired by my most recent concert outing, May 30.
(Sadly, Meat Loaf’s vocal ability has declined severely, but the band was kickass!)
I’D DO ANYTHING FOR LOVE
(BUT I WON’T DO THAT)
[reference only – please do not vote on this one]
“I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That)” is a song composed by Jim Steinman, and recorded by Meat Loaf and Lorraine Crosby. The song was released in 1993 as the first single from the album Bat Out of Hell II: Back into Hell. It was a commercial success, reaching number one in 28 countries. The single was certified platinum in the United States and became Meat Loaf’s first number-one single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and on the UK singles chart, and was the best-selling single of 1993 in the United Kingdom. The song earned Meat Loaf a Grammy Award for Best Rock Vocal Performance, Solo. – WIKIPEDIA
