Any MeatLoaf fans? I don't mean the food, the artist..

Okay, the song "I would do anything for love" I know there's been controversy, but what do YOU think the song is about, aside from what you've read or anything in the media that was publicized? Moreso, what "won't he do"? He m names off things throughout the song, but overall there's a metaphor or just a plain message.

  • "I would do anything for love, but I won't do that" I think 'that" is love. He would do anything for love, but not love/fall in love/be in love with her.

  • I like that song but not real sure on the message. My favorite song by him is "Paradise by the Dashboard Light". I love, love, love that song it is in my top 5 of all time favorite songs.

  • Yeah, I really don't know either. I was pretty young when I first heard that song, and I asked my dad what it meant, but he told me I would figure it out when I got older. I never did. I love Paradise by the Dashboard Light too!

  • The controversy over the song was a PR stunt to generate interest and boost sales. It is a song, and a darn good one at that.

  • I dunno what it means either. I actually did not know there was a controversy over it anywho. Guess it's my age...I was probably in Elementary school when that song first came out. But my husband loves him! I like his songs for the first couple of minutes...but they just keep going on and on and on and on....and on.

  • In all honestly, I think the only songs i've heard by Meatloaf are "Paradise by the Dashboard light", "Two Out of Three Ain't Bad", "I would do anything for love", and "You took the words right out of my mouth". I love those four songs.

    "Paradise By the Dashboard light" was my mom and bio dad's song. LOL. Apparently, the guys and girls in the bar would sing the parts they were suppose to. I think that'd be a great sight to go back in time and watch. haha
