Hot Patootie – “Bless My Soul”
The date was August 14, 1975 when ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show’ hit theaters and became an instant classic. Without a doubt a must watch during every Halloween, this film features great music, tremendous acting, and stunning visuals. From start to finish, this film is a wild ride all lead by a star-studded cast featuring such greats as Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, Barry Bostwick, and of course, multi-platinum recording artist Meat Loaf.
The moment his character Eddie made his grand entrance bursting through the wall on his motorcycle, you knew you were in for an epic treat. Laced with such energy and charisma, this iconic performance of “Bless My Soul” is nothing short amazing. In fact it was so good, Dr. Frank N. Furter had to chase him out of the room with a pickaxe so that he wouldn’t completely steal the show from him!
FUN FACT: Richard O’Brien, one of the songwriters that wrote “Bless My Soul” originally “had no faith” that Meat Loaf could include all of the lyrics to this song for this performance based on the fact the previous actor who played Eddie for the London production couldn’t do it. Obviously, Meat Loaf proved him pleasantly wrong.
If you ask me, there’s just no better way to spend your Halloween than reliving this once in a lifetime performance from this cult-classic. Seriously, try and tell me you don’t see at least thousands of people dressed as Eddie each year for Halloween, it’s just that iconic!
