Top Ten Best Meat Loaf Songs


The Top Ten

1 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

2 Bat 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.

Best song EVER written & sung

3 Paradise 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.

Simply fantastic!

4 Two 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!

It's the best song of all time I'm 56 years old and I'm listing to it rite the first time I herd it was back in the 70 s and I still have lots of his song and always will

I first heard this song when my daughter was growing up. I will always love it. It's what I think of every time Meatloaf is mentioned.

5 For 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

Possibly the best song ever written.

6 Objects 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

Most emotional, beautiful and touching song of Meat Loaf. Jim Steinman wrote this song with heart...

8 You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth

Deserves to be higher up on the list. Definitely demonstrates Meat's theatrical talent combined with his vocal talent. And Jim Steinman's composition is at the top of his game in this masterpiece outlining a couple's first touch of love on a hot summer night.

No less than #3 best of Meatloaf. Quality and originality of the music is sensational.

Ranked too low on this list!

The video is great with the commentary ending with

On a hot summer night,
would you offer your throat to the wolf with the red roses?
[Girl:] Yes.
[Boy:] I bet you say that to all the boys!

9 Runnin' 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.

10 Life is a Lemon and I Want My Money Back

The Contenders

11 Out of the Frying Pan (And Into the Fire)

All of these songs above and many more meatloaf songs could be on this list but this one at the moment for me has something special

This needs to be in the mix for sure...

12 The 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.

A great heavy metal meat loaf song. Great vocals!

13 Song of Madness
14 Seize the Night

The greatest song of all time with Bohemian Rhapsody - Greenday

15 I'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

16 Dead Ringer for Love

They are just brilliant a group I will always follow

Should be in the Top 10. Such a classic meat loaf song

17 Rock 'N' Roll Dreams Come Through

How is this NOT in the top 10? Excellent song and epic Meatloaf! Love this song.

I could listen to this song all night long!

Turn off the video and listen to this song
