Mel...As Sung By Meat Loaf

I was never a fan of Meat Loaf...or his music...ever...until he began his acting career. Something about him pulled me in...I liked the guy. After watching him hang with Grant and J. and chase ghosts last season on Ghost Hunters I decided I really liked him.

About a month ago I heard one of his songs on the radio. "Two Out Of Three Ain't Bad" quickly took up residence in my head and my MP3 player. Granted, the entire song is a pretty awesome piece...but the part that got to me...that still gets to me...that is

"I can't lie
I can't tell you that I'm something I'm not
No matter how I try
I'll never be able
To give you something
Something that I just haven't got" ---Jim Steinman

I find that to be a fitting companion piece to:
"Take me as I me or hate me...just don't give me crap for being Mel." ---Mel

And that my who I am...and where I'm this point in my journey.

"Two Out Of Three Ain't Bad" can be found on the playlist at the bottom of the page.
