Default 3. Heaven Can Wait

This is the START OUT OF HELL & ARRIVE TO HEAVEN topic. Let's Go to Rock 'n' Roll!!!!!!!

Heaven Can Wait (9)

This is the most optimist song of Jim Steinman. The lyrics is wonderful... from the clouds. You can image angels above your head and the beauties of the Earth. You know they are the peace, but God is down here... here on the Earth. You must live here and just after go with them and with Lord... there.
Only one thing. Maybe a woman with angelic voice could sing better this song, because Meat's voice is too strong for this.

My score is: 9



Average: 9.57 (220/23) [07/08/05]

Meat's voice is strong, but it's great how he can handle it. I mean, heaven can wait is a great song. And a gothic girl singing it? Talking of making a mess of a song. I think it's terrible if artists of so called make a song, and it's a cover of a song. Lack of creativity.

So no one should make a cover of Meat Loaf songs.

Tim!

You mustn't cover of Meat Loaf song, if you don't want.

I have got nobody who likes Meat Loaf, I don't know what is the opinion to other man about these songs. What does he/she feel when listen the music.

Thanks your goodwill!

Default 3 HEAVEN CAN WAIT

Heaven can wait by anyone but Meat Loaf?SACRALIDGE.BURN THE NON BELIVERS (or at least make them stand in the corner then send them to bed without any tea).But seriously,my worst dread and deepest fear is I'll wake up one day to find out that a no-talent,manufactured bunch of pretty boys have coverd a Meat Loaf song.Please god no.
Back to the point,Heaven can wait is a great song.

Default Heaven Can Wait

That a song like Heaven Can Wait can sit on an album alongisde the powerful Bat and fast-paced Paradise shows what a superb album it really is. Steinman's masterpiece hails back to the days of creativity - doing what you really believe in rather than what 'fashion' dictates. Nobody takes risks anymore - who would dare today to begin an album with a fantasy-like crash song, and yet also have an emotinal epic like 2outta3 and 'Heaven' sat in the middle? Meat and Jim produced something that will never be surpassed, and I just can't wait to see the man in action on Monday. And that comes from someone who wasn't even born when Bat was released! (I'm 21)

Amazing song. Everytime I hear it. It's quiet song with a great lyrics.

I like the recording from Nassau Coliseum, because Jim and Meat sing together.

My Score: 8/9

HCW is a good song, 'specially the LatW version, when Jimmy plays the piano with the huge solo in the middle.

Meat's version: 8/10
Meat and Jimmy LatW version: 8.5/10
Karla's version: 8.25/10 <- the more uptempo version gives it the edge over Meat's

"Heaven Can Wait" is just a really great song. I remember when I first purchased "Bat" I'd always find myself skipping over this track for some reason, but once I finally listened to it it became one of my favorite Jim Steinman/Meat Loaf songs. No one but Jim will actually know the true meaning of the song but it's very earthly. I've always thought it was a guy on the brink of death but he's found a female who makes him discover his childlike innocense once again.

10/10
Yeah and hearing Jim play the piano on this..well to quote the man himself "heaven can wait".

How can anyone sing this song better than Meat? Answer: THEY CAN'T, not even possible. May the world burn to a crisp before this happens. This is one of Meat's all time great's and listening to this song shows why life and this world is so precious. Meat, if anyone tries to do a cover of this song, do all you can to stop them, they will destroy a masterpiece.10/10

i was listening to this the other night out in the garden. the nieghbours had a disco outside...we aked them to play some Meat Loaf and they played Heaven Can Wait.....it was a still summer evening, with a clear starry skyand this wonderful Meat Loaf song drifting on the night....
Magical....it sounded superb,
( almost forgave them for the disco for playing that for me )


There is something so wonderful about hearingMeat Loaf's music outside on a still summer evening, no other sound just the music to fill the night....can't beat it

My personal least liked on Bat Out Of Hell. It is so amazing, I love the piano. I liked it when I was a kid, I would have rated it a 7. Now I rate it an 11/10. Making it my least liked on the album. I love his voice here too!

(anything I said on previous votes, about booh album you read of mine. no matter how high the rating, this is the least liked one with 11/10.)
