MEAT LOAF FEATURING CHER
"DEAD RINGER FOR LOVE" (1981)
A real 80s rock classic, this energetic tune was the first single to be taken from the No.1 platinum-selling album Dead Ringer. The single reached No.5 in the UK in 1981.
Disappointingly for Meat Loaf, the album wasn't as successful in the U.S. and peaked at #45 in the album charts. This was pretty surprising given that the previous album Bat Out Of Hell had reached 14x Platinum in the U.S. and became one of the best-selling albums of all time.
Four singles were released from Dead Ringer; I'm Gonna Love Her For The Both of Us, Read 'Em And Weep, Peel Out and, of course, Dead Ringer For Love ft. Cher.
