The Songs Of Jim Steinman [VIDEOS]

Like my previous story about ‘The Songs of Diane Warren,’ Jim Steinman is another one of those major songwriters who you may not be familiar with, but have heard his music on the radio. Jim’s big commercial break came when he began working with Meatloaf on the ‘Bat Out Of Hell’ project in 1977. Years later Meatloaf and Steinman would try and catch lighting in a bottle one more time with ‘Bat Out Of Hell II: Back Into Hell,’ but other than one major hit off the album, ‘I’d Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That),’ it didn’t come close to the 40 million copies of the 1977 album.

In between the two ‘Bat’ albums, Steinman was busy working on other projects and some of the songs that became radio hits can also be found as album tracks performed previously by Meatloaf.

**TRIVIA**

In 1983, two of Steinman’s songs held the #1 and #2 slot on the Billboard Pop Charts. While ‘Total Eclipse of the Heart’ was at #1 ‘Making Love Out Of Nothing At All’ was right behind it at #2.

In 1984 he was hired and briefly worked with Def Leppard. He was fired from the project and his contributions were scrapped. The Leppards then hired Robert John ‘Mutt’ Lange as producer and released ‘Hysteria.’
