Meatloaf is giving me conflicting messages

Source: Comment to Chris about during his brief "I'll be your mental health professional" moment yesterday

Ok, yesterday was an "I need to belt out songs" day. And my ultimate sing along album is Meatloaf's 1977 Bat out of Hell featuring songs by Jim Steinman. Mock away, Bastard Neil, I can take it. But here is the gist of the songs on this album in order:

1. I love you, but I love my motorcycle more, so let's make it tonight
2. We're making it on the beach, I love you, and I was about to tell you, but you said it first
3. Ok, I have no idea, because "Heaven Can Wait" is not beltable. Apparently Jim Steinman has a thing for Warren Beatty movies.
4. I was a great football player, damn I was horny, but I really don't know why you're in this song
5. Let's make it, but it doesn't mean I love you.
6. I said I love you to get into your pants, I married you, but now I'm hoping the world ends, because getting into your pants was SO not worth it.
7. I don't know that I've EVER listened to this song, so whatever.

So, after playing this album 6 or 8 times in a row over 2 days, I switched. All I can say about this has already been said to Chris: "I'm currently drawing inspiration from Culture Club's 1983 Colour by cannot be expected to be rational whilst listening to Boy George."

Really? 1983? Huh. Karma Karma Karma Karma Karma that bitch wouldn't have been lynched on a 1800s Mississippi steam boat.
