Default 61. Runnin' For The Red Light (I Gotta Life)

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

Runnin' For The Red Light (I Gotta Life) (6)

I think it's an average song. Not typical Meat Loaf. Only Rock 'n' Roll! I can compare the story with "Blind Before I Stop" or "All Revved Up". I read somewhere Meat doesn't drink a lot of alcohol and here he wants tequila.
I think the best song of alcohol is "Dry County" by Bon Jovi!
It isn't the best song on the album...

My score: 6



Average: 7.94 (71.5/9)

I was waiting for this song..because I love this song!
I heard Tina Turner did it on one of her tours.
My score: 8 (and even more if I feel like dancing)

His vocals are great. The backing vocals are great (on the whole album).
This song has to burst out of your speakers. Madder than a madman and bored to the c.c.c.c.core. Superb first vocals!
I did not know that Tina Turner sings it. is it on an album?

8/10

Hi Bart,
I don't think Tina Turner ever recorded it. But she did sing it on one of her many 'last world tours'.

I give this song a 8-9/10. I think this is one of the best Meat written songs appart from Midnight of course.

I just been listening to this song again recently. I didn't really like the album when i first got it, but have been giving it another chance. And this is one of my favourites.

BUT, it has to be played loud!

Guitar powered rock & roll.
About as subtle as a bull in a china shop.As soon as it starts it's right there.
I tried to sing it once.I mean tried and I mean once .It's been a challenge ever since.I will have another go someday .
Great fast and frantic music and lyrics.
8/10 A good time.

Like it a lot! That's a fun song. It gives me energy just like Do It!

There's a movie called Red Light Runners (produced and played by Michael Madsen and Harvey Keitel) which was shot this summer in London... hope they will ask to put this song on it!

8/10

This is an embarrasing rip-off of "Good Times". I'm Australian and I love Vanda and Young. I used to sing "Good Times" LIVE but I hate this version. It's mental. 2/10.

Did this have a video? Never seen it or heard anyone mention it except when someone said they didn't know about it in a Bat 3 forum. Would love to see it.

I love this one too - But I have a tendency to get it mixed up with When the rubber meets the road - also good song! - It's only when it starts that I'm like yeah - don't drink the water! Its an uplifting song. I like the rebel without a clue line. Also 9/10

Very underated song this, quite similar to Jumpin the gun though. I would give it a 7 out of 10.
