I know I'm not updating this blog quite as regularly as I would like to, but unfortuntaly I have a life beyond bloggin. Ok, that's possibly not quite right, as I reckon I have enough time to do my blogging - after all in the real world I have to stay up-to-date with current affairs, so spending an extra 10mins or so jotting down my thoughts isn't exactly going to make me sweat. I just find I don't have the necessary peace of mind.
Anyways, during a little tea break today I was enjoying some vintage Meat Loaf (yeah!), especially the wonderfully "Paradise by the Dashboard Light". I couldn't quite figure out the lyrics and whilst looking around I found this blog entry which makes some good observations on pop music. I particularly liked this bit on old Meaty:
Perhaps the most disturbing image from the night, however, was old friend Meat Loaf reprising his hit song "Paradise By The Dashboard Light." Unfortunately for the Meatster his former in-concert duet partner Karla DeVito was not available - rumor has it she was stuck at home babysitting her granddaughter for the evening. Instead they paired the Meat Man - who turns 60 this year - with a female singer who seemed, ironically, to be "barely 17" and, I might add, "barely dressed." The contrast was striking and creepy. Instead of "Let me sleep on it" I half- expected to hear his Meatness sing, "Young lady, you behave yourself or you’ll be grounded for a month."
