The Top Ten

I'd Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That)
This baby got me so totally hooked to this whole genre and it's gotten better and better after that
This is the best song in the whole world for me
Best lyrics best music and greatest voice ever touches me deep inside every single time I hear it
The one song you never get tired of. It simply has everything, the quit passes, the rock'n'roll topped with a duet by the end. It's simply the best song ever written

2Bat Out of Hell
awesome song with an epic intro of 1 minute 55 seconds before he actually sings!
This is the greatest song ever, so much that I take 10 minutes out of my valuable time just to listen to it! The intro is great, and the story it tells is amazing!
Epic guitar solo's, epic vocals, epic everything really. Je can't help but rock out when I hear the guitar solo's and him singing like a bat out of heaven.

3Two Out of Three Ain't Bad
I think this will always be there number 1 song it will always hit home to me and I love it its been with me many years and haven't heard it for years and still I no every word it will always hit home to me
Great song. I remember this growing up and brings back GREAT memories!
One of our most requested songs at dances in high school 32 years ago. I still remember the feelings you'd experience when this song played.

4Objects in the Rear View Mirror May Appear Closer Than They Are
I hope none of this is from his life, especially about the father hitting him. Don't we all have a best friend we remember with such love? My favorite lyrics of Meatloaf of all his songs... love him
The lyrics really touch you and get through to you.
It also has a lovely tune!
This is probably my favourite Meat Loaf song!
It's just so awesome!
Best ever, first time I heard it I actually cried, toptoptop

5Paradise by the Dashboard Light
how could this not be number one?! It's GREAT, NO! Even better then great
This is the only Meat Loaf song I've heard, and it has absolutely blown me away. If there's more to Meat Loaf than this, I can not wait to get into it.
This song is one of the best songs that I have ever heard just because it portrays two teens lusting for each other, then listening to the baseball game on the dashboard radio, and finally losing love for each other. It is sort of sad really, but really engrosses you in just an 8 minute period of time.

6I'd Lie for You (And That's the Truth)
This a awesome song I do know that actually all the songs that meatloaf sings are awesome but for some reason this one is the topone for me there is a lot of feelings that would show between two people with this song

7Los Angeloser Listen to sample

8Runnin' for the Red Light (I Gotta Life)
I don't really understand why this is in the top ten. It really isn't that good a song (although it's still better than "Do It! ") Any song from Bat I or II would be better than this, in my opinion.

9Out of the Frying Pan (And Into the Fire)
This needs to be in the mix for sure...
Listen to sample

10For Crying Out Loud
Absolutely epic. The orchestrations combined with the stunning vocals make this one of the most powerful recordings ever made. If that wasn't enough, two words: the coda. My favorite lyrics of all time.
One of the most beautiful songs ever written. I have been listening to it more than a hundred times.
One of Steinmans favourite songs

35Elvis In Vegas
Truly amazing song, gets even better when you combine it with the story around the Hang Cool album. Meat's vocals are at the best they've been since Bat II. Composition is sublime, everything fits together beautifully. I was lucky enough to see both KISS and Journey, my two favorite bands, this summer. both times, I thought of this song. My dreams truly did come to life.
Next to I'd Do Anything for Love, Elvis in Vegas is the greatest Meat Loaf song of all time. It is powerful and awesome.
