Dead Poet's Society part 1

I was supposed to write about bloggers who visit this blog who could actually write good poetry (Prinsesa Musang, Atticus, Prof BeatBurn). But I just visited JJ's blog and got pissed when MEATLOAF was not even mentioned as one of the seminal Rock artists of the 20th century.

How could you man? He has the voice of a Tenor and his songs are straight out of a Lord Byron canto.

The song below is MeatLoaf's. Even though it's mellow,
it so f*c*ing ROCKS.


Baby we can talk all night
But that aint getting us nowhere
I told you everything I possibly can
Theres nothing left inside of here
And maybe you can cry all night
But thatll never change the way that I feel
The snow is really piling up outside
I wish you wouldnt make me leave here

I poured it on and I poured it out
I tried to show you just how much I care
Im tired of words and Im too hoarse to shout
But youve been cold to me so long
Im crying icicles instead of tears

And all I can do is keep on telling you
I want you
I need you
But -- there aint no way Im ever gonna love you
Now dont be sad
cause two out of three aint bad
Now dont be sad
cause two out of three aint bad

Youll never find your gold on a sandy beach
Youll never drill for oil on a city street
I know youre looking for a ruby in a mountain of rocks
But there aint no coupe de ville hiding at the bottom of a cracker jack box

I cant lie
I cant tell you that Im something Im not
No matter how I try
Ill never be able
To give you something
Something that I just havent got

Theres only one girl that I will ever love
And that was so many years ago
And though I know Ill never get her out of my heart
She never loved me back
Ooh I know
I remember how she left me on a stormy night
She kissed me and got out of our bed
And though I pleaded and I begged her not to walk out that door
She packed her bags and turned right away

And she kept on telling me
She kept on telling me
She kept on telling me
I want you
I need you
But there aint no way Im ever gonna love you
Now dont be sad
cause two out of three aint bad
I want you
I need you
But there aint no way Im ever gonna love you
Now dont be sad
cause two out of three aint bad
Dont be sad
cause two out of three aint bad

Baby we can talk all night
But that aint getting us nowhere

hahaha. ikaw naman. magpatawad ka naman. kainis ka. maigsi lang ang taxi ride ko. iyon lang dalawa ang natugtog habang nakasakay ako sa taxi. of course, who would say meatloaf wasn't a great writer? if you listen to his "bat out of hell" it feels like listening to an opera in rock.

peace, man.
