Immensely important question!!

Postby Shiro on Fri Mar 23, 2001 9:55 am

I was going to ask this in the other thread, but it doesn't really fit the pattern, so...<P>When Meat Loaf sings "I will do anything for love, but I won't do that," what did you always assume <I>that</I> was?
<UL TYPE=SQUARE>
<LI>Commit murder/other illegal act
<LI>Sell someone out
<LI>Unpleasant sex act (my guess)
<LI>Get whipped
<LI>Die
<LI>It's a metaphor for the limits placed on a relationship and doesn't refer to any one thing
<LI>other</UL>

Well, there's the technical answer, that he said was the right one himself on VH-1... but i think most listeners make up their own answers anyway. *L*<P>technical answer? it refers to whatever the thing was in teh line before - "but i'll never stop dreaming of you every night of my life, no way, I would do anythign for love, but i won't do that." So it changes every verse. According to Meat. ;)<P>Wow. so there ARE other meat loaf fans out there. *L*

I just like the song. I'm kind of young to be a full-time Meat Loaf fan. <P>(If Remi & everyone knew how old I really am, they'd wet their pants...)<P>Do you know that when telemarketers call his house, they ask for "Mr. Loaf?" <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/biggrin.gif">

Still need to do a strip that's an odyssey of overweight rock stars... late, need sleep.<P>-Remi

Now <I>I</I> want an unlisted number that delivers heavy shocks to unwanted callers. I can only imagine the many pleasant evenings I'd spend waiting for telemarketers to call and then listening to them writhing in agony.<P>::sigh::<P>It would be beautiful.
