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
Easily could be stated as one of the best songs ever written it has a feel that nobody I've ever shown it to loves even if they don't like meat loaf they love this song. I could throw out songs like stairway to heaven or somebody to love but they don't compare to this, this isn't just the best meat loaf song it is the best period.
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

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.
[Newest]Best song by him

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.
[Newest]I love this song very much! Great song,

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!
Meats best song for crying out loud is not an option so I picked his second best

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.
[Newest]Real good song good beat

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

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...

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

The Contenders

11Not a Dry Eye In the House

12You Took The Words Right out of My Mouth

13Seize the Night
The greatest song of all time with Bohemian Rhapsody


14Dead Ringer for Love
They are just brilliant a group I will always follow

15Home by Now / No Matter What

16All Revved Up With No Place to Go

17Rock and Roll Dreams Come Through
I could listen to this song all night long!
Turn off the video and listen to this song

18Life is a Lemon and I Want My Money Back

19Blind As a Bat

20Everything Louder Than Everything Else

21Good Girls Go To Heaven (Bad Girls Go Everywhere)


23Read 'Em and Weep

24I'll Kill You If You Don't Come Back
This song was in my head for an two months after a girl went to montreal leaving me with out a date for my grade 12 prom. This song will always have a special connection to me, she is " the one girl ill never forget".

I just thought it should at least be mentioned

25Bad Attitude

26Blind Before I Stop

27Couldn't Have Said It Better
How isn't it on this list in my opinion it's one of the best songs Meatloaf has ever sung. It's not as hardcore as some of his songs but it has a lot of meaning to it.

28It Just Won't Quit
Must be in no. 3

29Cry Over Me
This is the best song from Bat Out of Hell I. The last minute is powerful enough to give you chills.

30Love You Out Loud

31Hot Patootie - Bless My Soul
The Rocky Horror Picture Show [Original Soundtrack]

32Elvis 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.

33Rock & Roll Mercenaries What a voice

34Fallen Angel

35Midnight at the Lost and Found
Great song. So emotional.
Truly one of my favorite songs ever!
Deserves to be higher.

36Bad for Good

37If It Ain't Broke Break It

38The Promised Land

39Peel Out

40Nowhere Fast

41More Than You Deserve
Check it out! Easily in the top 15.

42If This Is the Last Kiss

43It's All Coming Back to Me Now
My favorite Meat song of all time. Marion Raven does an amazing job. This song was made for Meat Loaf. As well as Pandora's Box and Dion do, Jim Steinman wrote this with Meat in mind. Great emotional pull too.

44Heaven Can Wait
A great song that sounds a little like Desperado!

45The Monster Is Loose
Amazing combination of metal and oprah with the driving guitar and drums. The singing: Phenomenal! Just everything about this song is great especially for the person who enjoys more hardcore meat loaf.

46Modern Girl
How is it not on here? Brilliant song from the underestimated brilliant Bad Attitude album.
