Meat Loaf - Bat out of Hell

Los lunes son para vibrar...

Y pocas canciones conozco yo que te vayan sumergiendo en una constante e intensa sucesion de vibraciones como esta. Nunca había escuchado tranquilamente a Meat Loaf, si que es cierto que tiene canciones archiconocidas, pero de vez en cuando me cojo algún disco de esos pendientes que tienes por escuchar y me sorprendo yo a mi mismo con lo que me pierdo. ¿No teneis a veces la necesidad de tener más horas al día para poder hacer todo lo que quereis o en su defecto, y hablando de la música, no tener más orejas para poder escuchar más discos a la vez?...yo es que no doy abasto.

Este tema es la primera pista de un disco de homónimo nombre que grabó Marvin Lee Aday, nombre real, en el año 1976, y que sería su comienzo en la música comercial. Antes con su banda había incluso teloneado a The Who. Se le conocía más en el mundillo artísitico por su trabajo en teatros. Su estilo de entender el Rock y los grandes temas que compone le hacen ser reconocido durante los ochenta y parte de los noventa. Este album parte de un musical de Steinman titulado Neverland y recoge influencia no sólo del ya nombrado sino del mismísimo Bruce Springsteen.

Un murciélago salido del infierno....para el lunes.



"The sirens are screaming and the fires are howling
Way down in the valley tonight
There's a man in the shadows with a gun in his eye
And a blade shining oh so bright
There's evil in the air and there's thunder in the sky
And a killer's on the bloodshot streets
Oh and down in the tunnel where the deadly are rising
Oh I swear I saw a young boy
Down in the gutter
He was starting to foam in the heat

Oh Baby, you're the only thing in this whole world
That's pure and good and right
And wherever you are and wherever you go
There's always gonna be some light
But I gotta get out
I gotta break it out now
Before the final crack of dawn
So we gotta make the most of our one night together
When it's over you know
We'll both be so alone

Like a bat out of hell
I'll be gone when the morning comes
When the night is over
Like a bat out of hell I'll be gone gone gone
Like a bat out of hell I'll be gone when the morning comes
But when the day is done
And the sun goes down
And moonlight's shining through
Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven
I'll come crawling on back to you

I'm gonna hit the highway like a battering ram
On a silver black phantom bike
When the metal is hot and the engine is hungry
And we're all about to see the light
Nothing ever grows in this rotting old hole
Everything is stunted and lost
And nothing really rocks
And nothing really rolls
And nothing's ever worth the cost

And I know that I'm damned if I never get out
And maybe I'm damned if I do
But with every other beat I got left in my heart
You know I'd rather be damned with you
Well, If I gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned
Dancing through the night with you
If I gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned
Gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned
Gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned
Dancing through the night
Dancing through the night
Dancing through the night with you

Oh Baby, you're the only thing in this whole world
That's pure and good and right
And wherever you are and wherever you go
There's always gonna be some light
But I gotta get out
I gotta break it out now
Before the final crack of dawn
So we gotta make the most of our one night together
When it's over you know
We'll both be so alone

Like a bat out of hell
I'll be gone when the morning comes
When the night is over
Like a bat out of hell I'll be gone gone gone
Like a bat out of hell I'll be gone when the morning comes
But when the day is done
And the sun goes down
And moonlight's shining through
Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven
I'll come crawling on back to you
Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven
I'll come crawling on back to you

I can see myself tearing up the road
Faster than any other boy has ever gone
And my skin is raw but my soul is ripe
And no one's gonna stop me now
I gotta make my escape
But I can't stop thinking of you
And I never see the sudden curve until it's way too late
And I never see the sudden curve till it's way too late

Then I'm dying at the bottom of a pit in the blazing sun
Torn and twisted at the foot of a burning' bike
And I think somebody somewhere must be tolling a bell
And the last thing I see is my heart
Still beating
Oh breaking out of my body
And flying away
Like a bat out of hell
Then I'm dying at the bottom of a pit in the blazing sun
Torn and twisted at the foot of a burning bike
And I think somebody somewhere must be tolling a bell
And the last thing I see is my heart
Still beating
Still beating
Oh breaking out of my body and flying away
Like a bat out of hell "

Chapu, vaya dos lunes que me estas dando...ZZ Top y ahora Meat Loaf, que como ya sabes es otra de mis perdiciones.Un cacho de carne que tiene alguna balada, para mi, sublime y con una energía y garra que me llega mucho.
Genial!!!!
