Lead vocalist on that one was Holly Sherwood who had a minor UK hit in 1971 with this.
I fucking LOVE Holly Sherwood's vox mate.Hadn't seen that rendition of Good Girls though, I only knew from Bat Out of Hell 2.
Dunno if you know already, but she did the songs for Streets of Fire (obviously one of the inspirations for the Streets of Rage games).
Thrive on both these tracks, obviously Steinman wrote both, and we know Nowhere Fast from Meatloaf's Bad Attitude, but this rendition is my fave...........
Fuck me that's set my morning up nicely. :dance: :dance2: :dance3:
Yes got the soundtrack (vinyl and CD), and also the DVD. In 1984 there was a magazine called Beatbox and I entered a few competitions in it. I won twice in 2 months, first of all the Big Country live at Barrowlands video, then the following month a Streets of Fire making of Video, which also included the three promos from the film, these two and the Dan Hartman one.
Curiously, around the same time, I won 2 competitions in a rival magazine called 'Record Winner'. These prizes were a signed Mari Wilson album and a red vinyl 12 inch of Thor's Let the blood run red along with a signed metal bar that he'd bent in his mouth (allegedly).
I like all the Pandora's Box tracks better than the various covers that followed from Meat Loaf and erm Celine Dion. I'm the same with Jim's Bad For Good album. I prefer all those versions to Meat Loaf's later covers. Although, Barbra Streisand did do a pretty good version of 'Left in the Dark'.
I tend to flit between Meatloaf and the other versions, but all of them sound fucking mint, simply coz they're mint songs.
You've got me right on a Stienathon this morning now :lol: Time for a bit of 1981's Surf's Up.....
Think I do prefer the Meatloaf version on this just though.
What a tune. arty: Love that Richard Corben Bad For Good artwork too. Sadly passed last year.
Wish some modern artists would get anywhere near this level of brilliance. That 00's thread is as bare-bones as it comes.
