In my opinion, Jim and Meat make equal `contributions' to a song.

I am glad that meat is still rockin', but Jim is concerning songwriting a god
His lyrics are so shrewd and genious. And in combination with the god of singing, Meat Loaf, the songs are the most powerfull thing on the universe.
But no Jim, so the songs on testify will be a little les powerfull than jim-meat songs, but still powerfull.
I can't wait till testify is released

No way! Sorry, but if this were the case then Meat and Jim would be another Bernie and Elton. Jim definately writes the songs, then Meat adjusts them to his liking, and finally a producer plays middle-man in the process. Jim is the one who puts like 90% of the song together. There is not an equal collaboration between Meat and Jim. Meat Loaf has admitted that he sucks at song writing - I have heard him say this with my own two ears live and in person - Jim writes the songs and Meat "tweaks," but nothing major. If anyone should get a co-writing credit for Jim's songs that Meat sings it should go to Meat Loaf's musical directors. If you notice, every song has a new spin for every new tour. The most notable (and positive) changes were when Kasim took over and put the piano back in the spot light.
