Memoirs of a Gaijin Playlist

“I Would Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That)” by Meat Loaf

This song is one that I knew the hook to for many years, but it was not until two weeks ago that I actually listened to the full song for the first time. And when I finally did listen to it, I found it as great as I was hoping it would be. I love how it has the piano creating the backbone of the moldy, and I love how the guitar and drums accentuate the entrances and exits of the chorus. And Meat Loaf’s vocals are at both declarative and quietly personal, the latter of which I a personal favorite in most songs. I really love this song, and listening to this song is definitely one of the things that I know I would do for love.
