    Question about song; I would do anything but that

    Ok, I don't know the real name of that song or who sings it but "I would do anything for you, but I won't do that."

    I have to ask - what is "That"?

    No one I know can tell me.

    I'm pretty sure that was a Meatloaf that sang that song, and I sing it to my wife everyrime she hits me with honey-do list.

    Yes, it's Meatloaf. He won't dump her or cheat on her is what he's saying to her.

    [Girl]
    After awhile you'll forget everything.
    It was a brief interlude
    And a midsummer night's fling,
    And you'll see that it's time to move on.

    [Boy]
    I won't do that. I won't do that.

    [Girl}
    I know the territory, I've been around,
    It'll all turn to dust and will all fall down,
    Sooner or later, you'll be screwing around.

    [Boy]
    I won't do that. No, I won't do that.

    I actually do know who Meatloaf is and some of his songs, I just couldn't help myself.

    And I would do anything for love,
    I'd run right into hell and back,
    I would do anything for love,
    I'll never lie to you and that's a fact.

    But I'll never forget the way you feel right now
    - Oh no - no way - I would do anything for love,
    But I wont do that, I wont do that, anything for love,
    I would do anything for love, I would do anything for love,
    But I wont do that, I wont do that.

    Some days it don't come easy,
    Some days it don't come hard
    Some days it don't come at all,
    And these are the days that never end.

    Some nights you breath fire,
    Some nights your carved in ice,
    Some nights your like nothing I've ever seen before, Or will again.

    Maybe I'm crazy, But it's crazy and it's true,
    I know you can save me, No one else can save me now but you.

    As long as the planets are turning,
    As long as the stars are burning,
    As long as your dreams are coming true - You better believe it! -

    That I would do anything for love,
    And I'll be there until the final act -
    I would do anything for love!
    And I'll take a Vow and Seal a pact -

    But I'll never forgive myself if we don't go all the way - Tonight -
    I would do anything for love!
    I would do anything for love,
    I would do anything for love,
    But I wont do that, I wont do that...

    I would do anything for love,
    Anything you've been dreaming of,
    But I just wont do that...

    Some days I pray for Silence,
    Some days I pray for Soul,
    Some days I just pray to the God of Sex and Drums and Rock 'N' Roll.

    Some nights I lose the feeling,
    Some nights I lose control,
    Some nights I just lose it all when I watch you dance and the thunder rolls.

    Maybe I'm lonely, And that's all I'm qualified to be,
    There's just one and only, The one and only promise I can keep.

    As long as the wheels are turning,
    As long as the fires are burning,
    As long as your prayers are coming true - You better believe it - !

    That I would do anything for love!
    And you know it's true and that's a fact,
    I would do anything for love!
    And there'll never be no turning back -

    But I'll never do it better than I do it with you,
    So long - So long - I would do anything for love,
    I would do anything for love,
    I would do anything for love,
    I would do anything for love,
    But I wont do that, I wont do that!

    I would do anything for love,
    Anything you've been dreaming of,
    But I just wont do that...

    But I'll never stop dreaming of you
    Everynight of my life - No Way -

    I would do anything for love,
    I would do anything for love,
    I would do anything for love,
    But I wont do that, I wont do that!

    Girl : Will you raise me up?
    Will you help me down?
    Will you help get me right out of this Godforsaken town?
    Will you make it a little less cold?

    Boy : I can do that!
    I can do that!

    Girl : Will you hold me sacred?
    will you hold me tight?
    Can you colorize my life I'm so sick of black and white?
    Can you make it a little less old?

    Boy : I can do that!
    I can do that!

    Girl : Will you make me some magic, with your own two hands?
    Can you build an Emerald city with these grains of sand?
    Can you give me something that I can take home?

    Boy : I can do that!
    I can do that!

    Girl : Will you cater to every fantasy that I've got?
    Will ya hose me down with holy water - if I get too hot - ?
    Will you take me to places that I've never known?

    Boy : I can do that!
    I can do that!

    Girl : After a while you'll forget everything,
    It was a brief interlude, And a midsummer night's fling,
    And you'll see that it's time to move on.

    Boy : I wont do that!
    I wont do that!

    Girl : I know the territory - I've been around,
    It'll all turn to dust and we'll all fall down,
    And sooner or later you'll be screwing around.

    Boy : I wont do that!
    I wont do that!

    Anything for love, I would do anything for love,
    I would do anything for love,
    But I wont do that, I wont do that.

    Yeah he is probably best known now among the younger generation as the Biker in “The Rocky Picture Horror Show”. Actually that’s who I know him as.

    OK, funny and true story about that song.

    I was listening to that CD (Bat Out of Hell II) one day in my office and an Intern walked by and said she loved that song. I asked her, "Oh, you like Meatloaf?" and her response was "I suppose, if it is cooked right."

    I asked her out after that comment

    No joke.... about 20 yrs ago.... my sister-in-law (much younger than my ex-wife) comes up and says ...... "you have to hear this band I just learned about ... they are called the Beatles". OMG ... some people were just born yesterday.

    My son kept playing his music loud with Metallica and said I just didn't like the music. I told him it's not the music, it's how loud you are playing it at midnight. He didn't listen, so I went in and cranked up my amp, etc. ...... and put on Jimmi Hendrix. Drowned out his Metallica.

    Some people don't step outside themselves to realize, just where those ahead of them have been. It's like when my kids were grown and I went out and bought a rather fast sports car.... they asked "why on earth" I would buy a car like that ... I had never driven anything like that. I told them, before you were born... this is all I drove, I had to give them up to be able to haul you around everywhere.

    Meatloaf , is an oldie. I always did like Meatloaf.

    Actually, not sure about if its an urban myth or not. Supposedly it was a "response" song. His real life wife announced she was bisexual and wanted him to "particitpate in her extramarital activities....."I would do anything for love but I wont do that...."

    funny, my first album (yeah, vinyl) was KISS Destroyer. My mom was asking - "is this reeaaaally what you want?". Little while later I hear a knock on my door and she's asking "who sings that?". Beth was playing then.

    I think more people would recognize him as Bob from Fight club.

    I remember my parents listening to Meatloaf back when I was a kid, and I really liked Bat out of Hell.
