Yeah, felt so good, had to post twice!

"This Corrosion" was written by Andrew Eldritch and produced by Jim Steinman, and is one of the band's most well-known songs. It uses a 40-piece choir, and the LP version of the song lasts for nearly 11 minutes (the single versions are substantially shorter).


You are what you take!

I'm not done yet!



"More" is a song by The Sisters of Mercy, from their album Vision Thing. It was the first single from the album, reaching number one on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart for five weeks, starting 15 December 1990. The song was co-written and co-produced by Andrew Eldritch and Jim Steinman.


All the love that you can't get...

All the love that I can't get to...



Shitlords!

Yup. RIP Steinman. He was a cool guy and interesting character. That Sisters record were good music. I saw them twice touring those records. Good Goth rock music.

I shouldn't be surprised that on this board that is what he is best remembered for. Honestly I wouldn't have guessed that he had anything to do with Sisters based on his more popular output.

Even if the piano player can't play, keep the party going.

I wanted to have a dig at his over-dramatic, pretentious song writing - it has always put my back up - but this is a human being and death is never a good thing. R.I.P.

Sorry, but it's not my fault

there is a really cool Bat Out of Hell Classic Albums episode where they have him in it quite a lot. He was a very funny and entertaining character. Full of humor..

yeah it was.. but when you look past all the mythology of MeatLoaf ... and just look at the music for what it was.. it's basically what Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street band would sound like if they did camp on Broadway..

That's a fair assessment, not my thing but I admire his production talents on those records. And I did have a brief thing for Floodland at the time so... :)

RIP.

Actually he was the songwriter on Bat Out of Hell. Todd Rundgren produced it. If you listen to some Utopia records, you will hear the similarities in sound. They were all done in the weird studio Rundgren had in Woodstock, NY.. also some really ground breaking new wave records done in that studio .. early Psychedelic Furs and Lords of the New Church..


Those Sisters records were cool for their time.. but they haven't aged well. I think they had Eddie Martinez on guitar (the same session player that played on Robert Palmer records.. )

Also XTCs infamous Skylarking sessions I guess.

They were always way OTT to me but that was the appeal. Though find it hard to listen to them now, stuff like that incessant snare, just horrible.

Got rep to uphold dude.

Wasn't gonna post this one to be fair (his fave):

Total Eclipse of the Heart

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lcOxhH8N3Bo


Dude took it to the limit. He worked with many various people. Had a shit tonne of hits.

Not many like him.

Any one can shit or piss on his grave. That's fine. Probably valid.

But 10/10 for effort!

Now you're just being picky!

But ok, it was a bit much if your were wearing headphones!

Yea I had to do a double check & make sure they were talking about who I thought they were talking about
My brain goes right to Meatloaf when I see that name (even tho Total Eclipse was the song I liked)
