Default Meatloaf's Paradise

Didn't want to totally hijack the "the wife" thread but I just have to know. How many here have Paradise by the Dashboard Lights in their top ten of songs? It is my #1, all-time favorite. I cannot hear it play and not sing along (yes, even Harry Carey's part). I cannot play it while driving cause the pedal hits the metal and 100+ mph is a common event. I LOVE that song!!!

So, who else goes gaga over that song?

It's definitely at the top of my top ten. One of the best.

Definitely in my top ten. Saw Meat Loaf in concert a couple of years ago, mostly screaming unintelligible lyrics. Too bad.

Never heard of it. The only "Paradise" I've heard is by John Prine.

Good Morning, redwitch

As you can see, this is gmcneill.

I begin by saying thank you for your postings to TOTV. You often have a slightly different way of looking at things than I do, but I sincerely appreciate the perspective of someone whose opinion I respect.

The purpose of this message is to let you know that the broadcaster voice-over in "Paradise..." is not performed by Harry Carey but by Phil (the Scooter)Rizzuto, the long-time NY Yankee shortstop and radio announcer.

I just tried to address this issue privately because, well, I was trying to be tactful and discreet. But I see that you do not accept pm

You add so much to the totv. To correct a minor issue in "front of the class" might be interpreted by some the wrong way. I intend no disrespect at all. I just thought that you (and now all other posters) might appreciate knowing...

gmcneill


PS: I agree...Paradise is one of my all time favorites too!

Don't worry gmcneil Red can take it. I was about to correct the post but you beat me to it.

Actually, I appreciate the correction. I always thought it didn't quite sound like Harry but never bothered checking liner notes to see if my info (friend who introduced me to Paradise told me it was Harry) was correct. So, thanks for letting me know (but I do still know every dang word rofl).

Default Paradise by the Dashboard Light

I love the song and its my number #1 to watch, good story. I think this video is great, love the lady in green. Meatloaf is a big Dallas Cowboys fan.

Hey Red,

This is just more proof that you have impeccable taste. Paradise has always been near the top of my list. Great memories, including seeing an entire wedding party act it out.
