Meat Loaf is one of those singers who brings me back to my youth. I was in high school (Spring Valley High, NY) and he was singing, "Two out of three ain't bad." Debbie and I and all the girls were in love with him, until we saw what he looked like! Ew! We'd never seen anyone sweat like that before.
Still his music is soulful and fun and I finally got my husband to go to a concert with me! Life was good! It was raining and we had our ponchos. How unlike both of us to be sitting in an outdoor ampitheater, holding $8.00 beers, wearing rain ponchos and watching a concert!

Save your tickets he said, and listen to the radio. Geez! For now I'll have to enjoy his "Monster is Loose" album in my car along with the memories invoked by listening to his songs.
