VIDEO OF THE WEEK: MEAT LOAF – ‘BAT OUT OF HELL’
October 28, 2019
Forty years after it ram-raided the UK Top 20 singles chart and it’s fair to say that Meat Loaf’s ‘Bat Out Of Hell’ still operates in a field all of its own.
Sounding utterly extraordinary upon its release, the song has lost none of its awesome power over the passing of the years.
And neither, for that matter, has the video that came with it.
Interspersed with shots of a powerful motorbike riding through a cemetery by the light of the full moon, this performance video also captures Meat Loaf at his larger-than-life self.
A potent cocktail of personality, presence and magical voice that hits the spot each and every time.
