Paradise By The Dashboard Light

Who loves the song "Paradise by the Dashboard Light?" Waves hand. It is musical genius and sung by the terrific Meatloaf. You have to be of a certain age to know and love this song. A wonderful age. When I was in college, this song was one of the rock songs that was played non stop at parties and on road trips. It was great fun.

Not only is it wonderful music, with wonderful voices, but it tells a story. A story that every young person can relate to. The genius of the song is that it compares a sexual encounter with a baseball game, switching back and forth. The people in the song come to their senses....and well the rest is history.

As I mentioned in my comment on this site acobay, I loved the original song, but not the sequel. The sequel implies that the couple in the original song got married......and that it was not good. I wish they had stopped at the first song and let us use our imaginations as to what happened. And to hope that it worked out better than the last line of the original song implied: to the end of time. If you don't know what this means, you just have to listen to the first song. I promise you won't be disappointed.

The acobay site is pretty cool--you can connect with others who like or own certain things. Visit it and maybe you would want to leave your own comment about "Paradise By The Dashboard Light."
