This is such a classic Meat Loaf track, released back in 1993! ‘I’d Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That)’ is a 12-minute progressive rock song (in full – the video is shorter), featuring vocals by both Meat Loaf (aka Michael Lee Aday) and Lorraine Crosby, however, she was not credited in the album notes or in fact even in the video.

Dana Patrick was the lip-syncher in the music video for the song and played the ‘beauty’ in the sort of retelling of ‘Beauty and the Beast’.

The song, which was penned by Jim Steinman (as with many other Meat Loaf tracks), reached Number 1 in the UK charts and is still an amazing track today.
