The way music videos should be

Music videos. I used to watch videos with great excitement to see the music put to a video. Often, I would be disappointed by the video as they were very simple.

But some artists stepped up and made music videos the way they should be--the music and the video told a story...a complete story. You have heard me mention Meatloaf, the singer. He is one of a kind to say the least. One thing that he could do with the best of 'em though was singing a rolling and rocking ballad that was a production more than it was a song. You hear a song and you realize that it is either Meatloaf or written by his people because they are very similar in build ups and execution.

The other thing that Meatloaf could do? He could put together a music video. These videos are so over the top and yet so entertaining that it makes you laugh and it makes you appreciate all that is Meatloaf. Hard sometimes to follow the videos as they are so out there, but they are not cheap to put together:

Meatloaf: I would do Anything for Love (But I won't do that)

Meatloaf: I'd lie for you and thats the Truth

Meatloaf: Its All Coming Back to me now As a sidenote, there have been several other covers of this song including Celine Dion...but this was a Meatloaf song and he ended up not using it on his album and let others use it.

Anyway, no real point to this whole post except for just having the chance to post about Meatloaf again.

To be honest Dorien, I am not sure if is an obsession or if it is in jest either.

O Yuck. Ground beef with eggs, and Biggie McLargeHuge singing love songs. I'm glad I'm back in town to clean things up around here!

And Dorien- it is real. Very Real.
