The Overlooked Songs From Each Meat Loaf Album

The Overlooked Songs From Each Meat Loaf Album | Society Of Rock Videos

Some Have Been Largely Forgotten

Meat Loaf announced his arrival into the rock ‘n roll scene with a stunning debut album. But predictably so, the massive success of “Bat Out of Hell” had its downside which is that every other studio effort fell short and forever lived in its shadow. With a total of twelve studio albums, Meat Loaf churned out overlooked but still great songs.

Let’s check them out.

12. Hell in a Handbasket (2011) – “The Giving Tree”

Pretty catchy.

11. Hang Cool Teddy Bear (2010) – “If It Rains”

A hook-filled straightforward rocker.

10. Braver Than We Are (2016) – “Who Needs the Young”

Not his usual fare since this one’s on the funky side.

9. Midnight at the Lost and Found (1983) – “The Promised Land”

Just addicting to listen to.

8. Bat Out of Hell (1977) – “Heaven Can Wait”

The highlight is Meat Loaf’s powerful vocals.

7. Blind Before I Stop (1986) – “One More Kiss (Night Of The Soft Parade)”

An essential Meat Loaf song.

6. Bad Attitude (1984) – “Sailor to A Siren”

Sounds pretty dated but still good.

5. Bat Out of Hell III: The Monster Is Loose (2006) – “Bad for Good”

In typical Meat Loaf fashion, it’s dramatic and infectious.

4. Dead Ringer (1981) – “Read ‘Em and Weep”

Even though this was largely ignored, Barry Manilow’s cover was a hit.

3. Welcome to the Neighbourhood (1995) – “I’d Lie For You (And That’s The Truth)”

Meat Loaf shared the vocals with Patti Russo and let’s just say, it’s glorious.

2. Couldn’t Have Said It Better (2003) – “Testify”

It absolutely rocks.

1. Bat Out of Hell II: Back into Hell (1993) – “Out Of The Frying Pan (And Into The Fire)”

It has everything we love about Meat Loaf’s music.
