How can one dance on radio? Unless it's a form of tapdancing that pulverises the radio set. :D

Strictly come dancing is a tv show
I believe the radio reference is a completely different thing altogether

Is he going to be on it? If so, do we know when abouts the extra act ususlly comes on?

Yes he is .. and the guest spot is I think during the first segment of the show, ie before the later part where they announce the voting results .. but don't hold me to that .. I'm just trying to remember from the last series of Celebs Come Prancing :)

Just before Strictly Come Dancing at 9.35pm (which I understand is the part where Meat Loaf will perform), there's a clip of him on TOTP2 on BBC2 on the show that lasts from 9.05pm until 9.35pm too!

Hi guys
just in case anyone doesn't know, Meat will be on Top Of The Pops 2 on BBC 2 in a matter of minutes (just after Q.I. finishes).

Flip over to BBC 1 at 9.30pm for a live performance on Strictly Come Dancing Fever On Ice or whatever the hell it is. Anyone noticed Bruce Forsyth is turning into Vincent Price? :cool:

Mick Loaf
21 Oct 2006, 22:24
Just flicked the channel to see Meat singing Anything for Love and
the writing mentioned the new album. Good plug.:D

Sorry if this has already been posted.

Monstro
21 Oct 2006, 22:24
That was brilliant, I'd forgotten how good Patti looked in that performance!!!!

Roll on 9.35!!!!!

I heard not long ago that BBC shows like this never use live performances for some technical reasons or other...regardless, it was good promo. Meat had the prescence, and Maid Marion is stunning. Call me. :P

Spoilt by the dancers and audience as well as Brucie and his pathetic sausage roll joke.

It wasn't live... they were miming. But I think that's a good thing, not worth the risk at this vital time! I loved the dancing that happened during the song - very stylish.

Hi,

I have just watched Marion & Meat preform 'IACBTMN'
It was a very good performance, but seemed to be the short version.

Only Mark and Kasin were visable of the band

It was spoilt by dancers big time.... but not spoilt by Bruce, the joke was light hearted because him and Meat are actually good friends, lol.

However, all round it was exellent promo!! Well done Meat!;)

Marion was stunning though wasn't she, how well did those black boots compliment that dress :o))

Well, it's kinda understandable as it's a dancing show so the stars are the dancers themselves.

Besides too much close-up and they might catch out the lip-synching more often.

22 Oct 2006, 00:17
They didn't do the full song, it doesn't do it justice, what they did show was vocally strong, they should been allowed to do the whole song because the show was just filling air time anyway. TOTPT, ATF, very good, but Meats performance at RAH was just as good.

Why not just record and release new stuff? I don't understand the politics of the music biz!

When an artist mimes it is not always there choice..... It is up to the producers of the programme. Meat basically saw this as a chance to promote the single and the album...... That's all.;)

This is down to BBC, not Meat, they never usually show live material on SCD, only live singing is the regular performers, and even then sometimes it's music played off a backing track, but this was a chance for Meat to promote his single, and it went well. :D

Pudding
22 Oct 2006, 02:02

We don't know who it's down to, seems people are quick to make excuses when excuses don't need to be made. It was promo for the single and album and that's all there is to it.

Orson Wells terrorized nearly a nation ( won't say which... :oops: ... lol ..) with his radio version of War Of The Worlds... people in "said nation"... thought they were under attack by Martians.. lol...

Sorry, but anyone who has featured on here, it's mimed, my girlfriend has me watchin this every week, I am with her, so I think I know on this one. I have not seen as yet, a live peformance on SCD, when a artist has appeared, so I don't think a difference will be made for Meat really. And why would anybody be making excuses, it doesn't bother me or anybody if Meat performs live or not, just sounds to me somebody nit-picking. Any promo to me is good, but if the BBC say it's gonna be Meat singing over a track, it's there way, and i think Meat would be happy with that.

I was very happy to see Meat get a chance to promote the song and I don't agree that it was mimed at all. It was clearly pre-recorded because straight after the performance Meat and the band completely dissappeared from the dance floor!

22 Oct 2006, 08:54
miming in such shows is mostly due to the fact that the producers dont want to take the risk of ruining the song through some bad notes or forgotten lyrics....stupid, I know

It wasn't prerecorded. That show defintely went out live last night and you can clearly see the audience. It's pretty obvious it's mimed and like others have said it happens a lot here. It's no reflection on Meat whatsoever. Nearly every tv show i've seen Meat on / at in the uk over the yrs has been the same.

Just enjoy it for what it is everyone :-) Free promo and a chance to see Meat, Marion and a couple of the band on our tvs :D

Id like it ten times more if somebody sings live than mime, even if there are two not hitted notes.
The stragest thing Ive ever seen was Avril Lavigne on TOTP, she said shed just come to the show if she can sing live, and she did, but didnt hit one single note.

So I guess both, miming and singing got good and bad sides,
we as fans want to hear him sing live, but the general audience just wants to see somebody perform a song there and if they like the song theyll buy it.
Its far different to miming on a concert which really should never happen (although Ive seen it too:( (not Meat, of course))

Absolutely .. Meat was there .. he looked great, it was a chance to air the song on a prime time TV show which regularly has 6m viewers on a Saturday night ..

I saw the man on my TV, heard him sing a simply beautiful duet, and echoing what Jayd says .. "it doesn't bother me or anybody if Meat performs live or not, just sounds to me somebody nit-picking. Any promo to me is good" -apart from saying.. it doesn't bother me .. and it shouldn't bother any fans of Meat who truly love and support him whether he performs live or not .. he was there, we heard the song .. it was a few special minutes to treasure .. end of story

I agree with Deb but one thing I didnot like on the show was, those dancers, they took the views away from Meat and Marion!!!!!!

BillyPhatu
22 Oct 2006, 11:49
I liked the whole segment, I thought it was very stylish and not OTT but unforgettable at the same time. Although Meat is the definition of OTT, I feel it would have been out of place on this show. That song is so beautiful and emotional, and having the moody lights and the gothic-romancing dancers was a wonderful touch - for those who aren't so keen on Meat, it took enough attention off of him and put more on the song itself.

And I LOVE Meat's latest outfit, that really gorgeous jacket and shirt. I want one :-P

jcmoorehead
22 Oct 2006, 12:32
The songs great, the promo was great unfortunetely I have now had to sit through half of Strictly Come Dancing to watch it. I feel so dirty :(

Regarding the miming, they probably didnt have time to set up all the instruments, tune them, run sound checks for what about 4-5 minutes of music. It's no big deal it's still promotion and gets the song more known.

I thought this performance was amazing and I think this debate over miming/lip syncing isn't fair, Meat isn't on our screens often and when he is we tear that performance apart and look for the negative! Meat looked amazing and so did Marion, can we not atleast be proud and happy than trying to tear it apart so it get's to the point where the appreiciation seems to have breathed it's last breath!

If you look CLOSELY at the comments you will see that we are just discussing the fact that many tv performances are mimed, nobody is insulting Meat, if anybody is insulted at all then it are the producers of these shows.

The bottom line is it is bad that many performances are mimed.

I sooo enjoyed watching tv last night (which is rare!) We had TWO Meaty treats which was just fantastic. I had butterflies in my tum watching Meat and Marion hoping that it all went fine for them (live tv must be quite scary). Its ashame about the lip-synching but then again its the land of tv and to be expected! I was just happy enough to have Meat on my screen doing what he does best. Way to go Meat! :cheer: :weee:

Thank God it was mimed at least we were saved a re-run of the Ken Bruce nightmare! Marion is brilliant but doesnt anyone think it makes Meat look a bit of a dirty old man. I will get lynched for this I can see it coming, but look folks get real he's in his own words, an old man (he isnt hes only 59) and she is a very young woman. Surely it would have been better to get someone older to do this duet with him (not necessarily the same age). With whats going on with the McCartneys, no fool like an old fool, surely Marion was not perhaps the best choice. I thought the Aspen/Meat Paradise at the RAH was spot on in its way of dealing with that.

You really have no idea at all! Do you even know what the song is about?! It's about a long lost love and the women he is singing to is the women he lost so many years ago....... It would look very odd if he sang to an older women because it would mean the long lost love wouldn't actually be a 'LONG' lost love!

Yes, you were right that you would get lynched for your comment...... However, i'm not lynching you simply because for your comment, it is because of you shear ignorance towards Meat and the song.

22 Oct 2006, 20:35
And the woman hasnt got any older ? Please can you let all us older gettting females how that happens? Apart from anything else a lot of the people out there watching wouldnt have a clue what the song is about, they would purely take it on face value and on face value, well I rest my case!

Meat is basically singing to the dead girl as he saw her when she was younger and alive...... Unless you are a beleiver of the undead and can see ghosts then the character in the song would not know what this women would look like as she got older...... He only has his memories to go by.

How many people would have worked that out? Only probably anyone who is a real Meat fan (including me) would have realised that, anyone hearing for the first few times probably wouldnt understand the meaning. The video works because it is surreal but last night looked like a straight love song. Most people dont dont read things properly and certainly dont listen to the words of anything properly. You only have to listen to phone ins to realise that two contributors listening to the same programme will appear to have heard two totally different views.

Marion was with Meat on the live version simply because she is helping to promote the single. I'm sure Meat would have sang with a corpse if he could but, if he did then the next time we'd see him he would be wearing a big fat orange suit with a ball and chain around his ankles.

Marion was with Meat on the live version simply because she is helping to promote the single.

I am just watching this discussion and marveling at gilly...


That's one word .. I can think of others. And as Meat said .. how does this help the process? Not a whit imo ..

He can't duplicate the video on stage or TV .. nor imo does he need to. The song is beautiful, they sing it beautifully. It worked at RAH, it worked on TV .. just appreciate the words and the performance.

:twisted: So it was mimed?

Good bit of prime time exposure 8)

Shame he wasn't allowed to do it live, but at least very little can go wrong on a mimed performance :wink:

As for the dirty old man comment, I think that's out of order :evil:

For one, I agree that it makes sence in the context of the song that Marion is much younger, AND, Meat and Marion are both acting a PART.

Not only that, but let's face it, Marion is a nice bit of eye candy for the viewer.


I think Marion got the gig because A - she sounds good, and B - she LOOKS good.


You think IACB would be half as alluring if it was a duet between Meat and auntie Doris with her hair in curlers and her apricot tights on?

They are both profesional performers, this is not real life, it's an ACT.

I can see another difference here...Heather and Paul were actually married...Meat and Marion are just performers acting on stage...although I wouldn't have condone age difference in any event...to each his own...live and let live...

Now you are really reading something into nothing. I most certainly did not compare Heather McCartney (who has to be the biggest b.... going)with Marion who I think is brilliant, pretty and talented. Several of us watched last night and all loved the song but the feed back was as I said, I am sorry if it offends some people but lets face it, most on this site can see no wrong otherwise they wouldnt be on it. Meat is a very attractive man but in his own words have referred to himself as an old man (I know it was probably meant as a joke, if it wasnt I disagree totally with the sentiment). I am just amazed that you all seem to take something like this so seriously when there are other things in the world far more important.

You really have no idea do you..... You are basically saying that all us Meat fans who visit this site are opinionless zombies who bow down to him regardless of what he does. I bet you think your the only person who can see wrong in Meat's performances and you think your special because of it? However, your not special because we can all see wrong and Meat can also see wrong in specific things..... However, we are all Meat fans and like to stick up for him...... All of us will be as honest as we can (And believe me, there have a been a lot more honest people on this site than you) but we will try be respectful to Meat at the same time!!!!

Yeh, there are more important things..... but this is a Meat Loaf site and when we visit here we, funnily enough, talk about Meat Loaf......

:twisted: Tip of the day - if you visit a fan site, you are likelly to meet "fans" :yep:



Meat is a very attractive man but in his own words have referred to himself as an old man (I know it was probably meant as a joke, if it wasnt I disagree totally with the sentiment).

There's a big difference between Meat calling himself old as a self-disparaging joke, and someone visiting his fan forum and saying he looks like a dirty old man :wtf:

I am just amazed that you all seem to take something like this so seriously when there are other things in the world far more important.

Such as? :shock:

Everyone has their passions, and those passions (no matter what they are)are importaint to people.
Bill Shankley (former manager of Liverpool F.C. ) famously once said that "to some, football is a matter of life or death.It isn't.It's much more serious than that."

I hate football myself, but I can dig the sentiment :up: .


People here take Meat seriously because Meat is importaint to them.

If fan worship offends you, then I advise you not to visit fan forums as you are going to be very offended on a very regular basis :wtf:



You are basically saying that all us Meat fans who visit this site are opinionless zombies who bow down to him regardless of what he does.

Thought you never met me at RAH Paul :mrgreen:

:lmao:





This thread is getting slightly out of hand now, so can everybody now take a step back and count to 10 slowly before posting again.

Differences of opinion are welcome, as long as they are posted in a way that is respectful to Meat, and to one another.

Don't make me put you on the naughty step for half an hour :bicker: :wink: :lol:

You actually asked the question directly:
"but doesnt anyone think it makes Meat look a bit of a dirty old man."

Whether this provoked the reaction you were looking for, or whether it was unexpected is neither here nor there frankly. I agree with Mouse, the question was out of order, and imo discourteous to someone whose site bears his name and who comes here to see what his fans think of his work, and looks for support and encouragement .. not imo unspurprising given this is a fansite which has his name at the top of every page.

My toes, and I suspect those of many of Meat's fans here, will remain precisely where they are. People are entitled to hold whatever opinions they wish, but their right to express them doesn't preclude showing a level respect for Meat, nor some sensitivity and courtesy in how they are expressed.

Saw him on "Strictly" on Monday looking really well and full of fun and seemed to really enjoy himself. That man certainly has charisma!!!

Now stop bickering and just enjoy him!

hey all go back to that strickly come dancing show where meat sang all coming back to me now. notice that the audeince were only clapping wen the skaters did good moves and not to meatloaf , i felt that was very bad.

and the cheer at the end i bet wasnt for meatloaf either. that sucks.

as big as a star meatloaf is they should have had him singing with her alone and no dancers to spoil it.

well come next year on tours meat will get all the spotlight he deserves. roll on wembley.
