Gone When The Morning Comes
Meat Loaf was not the novelty act that people are trying to say that he was. He had a good voice, and he knew what to do with it.
The point of popular music is to sell records by the shipload while packing venues to the roof; the clue is in the name. He did it. And he was a damn good singer with it. Is that what people dislike? Yes, and that says everything about them.
He was good actor, too. Credited even in the decidedly song-free Fight Club as Meat Loaf rather than as Michael Lee Aday, he truly inhabited the persona.
