Meat Loaf has something of an obsession with music videos, specifically, of being in them and of using them as promotion vehicles for his music. Makes complete sense for a guy who is an actor and a singer, for a guy who makes more money ($287/wk) to be on the musical stage. Alas, he was a music video champion a decade before MTV. Back in the Motown days, he tried to convince the label to make these short TV promos of Stoney and him singing. Motown wasn't a fan of the idea, matter of fact, Motown initially tried to hide the fact they had two white artists on their label, so TV promos of a big sweaty white guy weren't gonna happen.
Rocky Horror Picture Show yet again delivered on this artist's sweet spot. Meat convinced Lou Adler to add "Paradise By the Dashboard Light" as a trailer to RHS. When the movie premiered in 1975 it tanked. When it hit the midnight showings, it gave birth to its cult following...a following that was introduced to Meat Loaf and Ellen Foley singing "Paradise" via movie trailers.
So, I gotta know right NOW, before we go any further, do you love Meat? Will you love Meat forever?
