Hang cool Meat Loaf

June 15, 2010 - Cindy Votruba
I picked up Meat Loaf’s newest album “Hang Cool Teddy Bear” this past Friday. I got the deluxe album, which includes live versions of some of his past songs like “Rock and Roll Dreams,” “Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad” and “Anything For Love.” And so far I’ve only listened to the live CD, not the new one. But it’s always a pleasure to see Mr. Aday still rocking at age 62.

I hate to say it, but I didn’t necessarily grow up listening to the epic “Bat Out Of Hell” album. It came out in 1977 (when I was in kindergarten, mind you!), but I think the first time I heard “Paradise By The Dashboard Light” was in 1990 on the way to my high school’s senior picnic. One of my classmates was playing the cassette in her boombox.

I first bought the cassette of “Bat I” and then eventually graduated to CD. I have since bought several of Meat’s other albums, including the ones he didn’t collaborate with the great Jim Steinman. Granted those albums didn’t live up to the legendary “Bat” albums, but they’re still good.

While the Loaf goes on tour this summer, I just have one thought, “will there be a ‘Bat 4?’” Only time will tell.
