“Paradise By The Dashboard Light” 1977

The Bat Out Of Hell Tour was well underway when fans were treated to the iconic music video for the hit single off of Meat Loaf’s second album ‘Bat Out Of Hell’ titled “Paradise By The Dashboard Light”.  This song broke tons of new ground when it was released for its unique and innovative structure. The song narrates the story of a young couple in three parts.

Part 1: The couple, portrayed by both Meat Loaf and Karla DeVito, find themselves in the heat of the moment in a car and intend to ‘go all the way’.

Part 2: Karla comes to her senses just before the two truly go all the way and poses the question to Meat Loaf ‘before we go any further, do you love me?’ It’s then that Meat Loaf finds himself questioning his intentions. Flummoxed by this sudden change of heart, Meat Loaf can only muster the answer ‘let me sleep on it’.

Part 3: As Karla constantly asked the question over and over, the couple finally finds themselves many years down the road when the two are sick of each other and are ‘praying for the end of time’ so they can end their time with each other.

From start to finish, these two put on a masterclass of singing and showmanship. The two have undeniable chemistry on stage and it’s shown in this smoldering performance of Paradise By The Dashboard Light. See the iconic music video below!

Meat Loaf’s latest album ‘Braver Than We Are’ is available now on Itunes, Amazon, and Google Play for Android users. Get it now!
