Yesterday we lost two great entertainers. One was a vocal beast and the other was a funny but gentle giant. Louie Anderson was hilarious and just self-deprecating enough to make himself more loveable. You wanted to love Louie. His delivery was amazing. Rest in peace, Louie.
Meat Loaf was operatic, powerful, a larger-than-life presence that turned Jim Steinman’s tongue-in-cheek songs and witty and clever lyrics into monster tunes that you couldn’t help sing along with, even if you couldn’t hit all the notes. He died on Thursday but we didn’t know until late that night, early yesterday. Rest in peace, Marvin Lee Aday!
I talked about both on my Useless Things Podcast yesterday, which you can hear here.
This gentleman does a great rendition of one of my favorite Meat Loaf songs. Enjoy!
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
“I want you, I need you. But there ain’t no way I’m ever gonna love you. Now don’t be sad, ’cause two out of three ain’t bad.” – “Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad” (Steinman)
