The next CD Story is about my sister, Mandy, she’s my only sibling. We are very different in many ways, and yet have equally as many things in common.
As my older sister she has had a lot of influence on my life in a positive way (usually), and we’ve shared many musical experiences.
Mandy knew which CD she wanted before she started looking, and as seems to be the way with things like this, it was the third CD she put her hands on.
She choose Meatloaf, Bat Out Of Hell. A iconic album, that takes you on a fantastic musical journey. I’m a big fan of Meatloaf and Jim Steinman and their collaborations of extended length, theatrical songs.
I know for certain this album was played many, many times when Mandy and I would drive back to New Plymouth for weekends with friends after moving to Auckland in 1984.
Whilst Bat Out Of Hell is an epic song, I think Heaven Can Wait is my favourite song off the album.
Being the very pragmatic person she is, who is not about the warm fuzzies, she wrote
Have A Meaty Xmas
I love you too Mandy!
