Meat Loaf? Again?

I’ve always thought this song would easily be at home on a Meatloaf record. It’s a great song and has that “Bat Out of the 1980s” feel to it.

And then, lo and behold, I found this:

Guess it’s no surprise, though, when you look up the band Fire, Inc. (which recorded the film version) and find Jim Steinman. There’s also a couple other notables there, too: Rick Derringer (“Rock-n-Roll Kootchie Koo”) and Max Weinberg (Bruce Springsteen and was in Conan’s Late Night band … though I wonder if he’s going to be on the new show …)

Contrary to many Internet opinions I’ve seen, though, I prefer the movie version to the Meatloaf version.

Are there any songs you’ve heard that you thought could be performed by another band? What were they?
