Default 47. Life Is A Lemon And I Want My Money Back

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

Life Is A Lemon And I Want My Money Back (9)

It's a very very good progressive rock song! It's a rebbellion and request against the lawyers! I think this song is about his life. It reflects Meat's life in '80's years, it mirrors the bleak!

My score: 9

The song sounds dark and darker! The guitars are screaming like horny angels! It makes you pessimistic, lets you think, that life is a senseless black whole! Now, I know that my future is rotten and corroded! Should I do a suicide?? No! If I do that, I can't hear this fantastic song anymore!

10+/10

This is my song......can't say it in other words... I love this song!! The best i've ever heard, just is a reflection of how i feel!

So powerfull, such great lyrics! And the music.......that drum, guitar!! Live it is even beter. Specially with the drum intro.

It is pessimistic but also optimistic, i think, when i listen to it, and i'm angry, i think, well see, someone has it much thougher than me! :)

A 10+/10 (but now it's even harder to rate: Out Of The Fring Pan and the Other of Bat 2, i mean, comon.....all the songs are at least a 10+ )

Yes, I agree that the live version is better than on the album. I think the best will be mix of the Live Around The World and Storytellers version! On the Storytellers the best is the intro, when all instrument are introducing. On the LATW the best is the duett with anybody (I don't know who is he).

GOD I LOVE THIS SONG
I think it's the only song on Bat II better than Anything For Love.
I just can't listen to this song sitting down.Whenever I play Life Is A Lemon,I am compelled to stride up and down the living room furiously playing air guitar and singing along .
To me,it's just not a depressing song,it's a happy song chalenging the world,that says you'll never beat me.To quote the live version from the Hell Can Wait c.d. "Give it you're best shot".
I've got seven different recordings of "Lemon",and I love them all for different parts.I havn't got a favorite,there all great .
The music & the lyrics,Meat Loaf & Steinman,the feeling,all make this one of the top five songs in history easily.
10+/10 As long as Meat Loaf sings Life Is A Lemon,i'll never want my money back

On live around the world is the best live version I have ever heard of this song. But we need the intro of storytellers.

About the original version, I like the question part (What about love?) Because you can year Jim singing the questions.

Amazing powerfull song, that Meat always needs to sing at his tour.

My score: 9 Live Around The World version: 10

The original version is better than the remix.The ending is a lot better .On the remix version I think the music carrying on takes the emphisis off the end creshendo.

if "anything for love.." is what they said a grown up version of "Paradise" Than "life is a lemon" definitely is a grown up version of "Bat out of hell"

my score 9,5/10

Agree 100% It sounds like the start and end drums have juust been placed over the top, as opposed to a mix.

Definately one of the best songs every though

This has got to be the ultimate teenage (/adult ) angst song. Whenever something in the world is really getting you down or, ahem, p*ssing you off (sorry!), crank this up and you immediately feel better!

100% great emotion, an all time classic!

An angry:

9/10

Basically states that everything in life is defective, everything, no matter what, it all amounts to a state of deftiveness.
And as someone else stated, if you listen to the questions, you can hear Jimmy ask them.
Great song, everytime I hear it I always get the image of Meat coming on stage and banging those drums with the sticks of his.

10/10

Is there a better song to listen to when you need to vent after a bad day?
