Thread: RIP Those We Lost in 2021

    RIP Jim Steinman, the writer/composer/producer that created some of my all time favorite songs and albums, many of the songs 10 minutes long and epic in scope.

    I may not care about sex, drugs, and rock and roll, but he delivered. Best known for Meatloaf's Bat out of Hell albums, and some of Bonnie Tyler's biggest hits (notably Holding out for a Hero, and Turn Around Bright Eyes ) the man was super talented, though he hadn't made much new in the last 25 or 30 years, mostly songs he wrote decades ago kept getting repurposed in new forms.
    .
    I have to put a songs here but I don't know what to pick, so many greats. So I'll go with this one that I didn't even know was Steinman until today... but it makes perfect sense. And might be better for this forum than something like Paradise By the Dashboard Light.

    To support Viz hosting all Jump manga for FREE and day of release, Arlong Park will now support the official release.

    Damn. I love the first two Bat Out of Hell albums (never listened to the third). I mean, how many people can take a song with a title like this and make it legitimately great?

    Oh man, he was essentially the harbinger of the Disney Renaissance. He was everywhere at one point, and he originated the role of Mufasa in Broadway's Lion King.
