For the Love of Meat - I'd Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That) - Netflix
“I'd Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That)” is a song written by Jim Steinman, and recorded by Meat Loaf with Lorraine Crosby. The song was released in 1993 as the first single from the album Bat Out of Hell II: Back into Hell. The last six verses feature a female singer who was credited only as “Mrs. Loud” in the album notes. She was later identified as Lorraine Crosby. However, she does not appear in the video, in which her vocals are lip-synched by Dana Patrick. Meat Loaf promoted the single with US vocalist Patti Russo. The power ballad was a commercial success, reaching number one in 28 countries. The single was certified platinum in the United States and became Meat Loaf's first number-one single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and on the UK singles chart, and was the best-selling single of 1993 in the United Kingdom. The song earned Meat Loaf a Grammy Award for Best Rock Vocal Performance, Solo.
For the Love of Meat - Duet coda - Netflix
At the 9:28 point, the song transforms into a duet coda. The structure of the verses remains, but the woman now asks what the man would do. He answers in the affirmative for the first four sections. Woman: Will you make me some magic with your own two hands? Can you build an emerald city with these grains of sand? Can you give me something I can take home? Man: I can do that! The song's tone changes for the final two sections, in which the woman, Lorraine Crosby on the original recorded version, predicts that the man would eventually do things to upset her and their relationship. Both times, he denies it. The duet part was and still is performed regularly on stage by Meat Loaf with his current featured female vocalist Patti Russo. However, with the passing years and the consequent greater maturity of both singers, their interplay during the coda has gradually taken on ironic overtones, if not overtly comedic ones, which were totally absent from the original album version. For example, in the 2007 show 3 Bats Live, after Russo sings “After a while you'll forget everything, it was a brief interlude and a midsummer night's fling”, Meat Loaf stops the band and asks her (half-sung, half-spoken): “Why do you say this to me? Why do you keep saying these things to me every single night?”, and she replies innocently (again half-sung): “It's in the lyrics”. More funny exchanges of the same kind occur during their other live duets, such as the famous Bat Out of Hell track “Paradise by the Dashboard Light”.
