Remembering Meat Loaf: Amadeus’ Tribute

Singer Meat Loaf (September 27th 1947 – January 20th 2022) Known for his album Bat Out of Hell and his hit song I’d Do Anything For Love

Amadeus Emanon had just heard the news that one of his music idols Meat Loaf had just died at the age of 74.

He decided to do a tribute in his memory.

Amadeus who was a musician, a singer and an actor contacted some of his friends on social media about it this Friday night.

They went down to St. James’s Park and acted out Amadeus’ improvisationally written play.

The play began with a High Priest (who practiced satanism in private but was a respected ecclesiastical figure in public) who was plotting the death of a man who was a threat to him.

The high priest said to one of his subordinates, “We’ll track him down. We’ll get him through his weakest link. His youngest follower.”

The Apostle John (played by Amadeus) was approached by a girl (played by Angelique Dumont) he once knew.

The girl kissed him and asked him to love her.

As John slowly succumbed to the girl, the girl then made a request.

And Amadeus replied, “I’d do anything for love but I won’t do that.”

Amadeus then began singing the song lyrics,

“And I would do anything for love but I won’t do that…”

He sang the lyrics up until the lines

“Some nights you’re like nothing I’ve ever seen before
or will again…”

Amadeus as the young Apostle John turns away from the girl played by Angelique.

John (Amadeus) then turns to a fellow actor who’s playing Jesus,

“And maybe I’m crazy
Oh it’s crazy and it’s true
I know you can save me
No one else can save me now but you…

That I would do anything for love
I’ll be there till the final act.”

John (Amadeus) bows to Jesus and then turned back to the girl he had known,

“I’d do anything for love but I won’t do that.”

The scene then turns back to the satanic High Priest, “So much for the theory about who I thought was the weakest link…”

The High Priest is then approached by Judas Iscariot who sells out Christ for thirty pieces of silver.

The Apostle Paul had it right when he said, “The love of money is the root of all evil.”

    Wow! So much packed in these lines from tribute to meatloaf to his sensational song to biblical imagery! I wud say it’s modern satire on satanists disguised as custodians of religions and followers of Judas who are ready to sell god. But then you have very few like Amadeus singing,” I would do anything for love but I won’t do that….”. Strong individual who will not bow down or sell their morals for false hope of lust.
    💞💞💞 such a beautiful tribute to Meatloaf, bless his soul!

      Thank you so much, Tanya. ❤❤❤

      Yes, you’ve analyzed and seen the premise and point of my blog post so well.

      You’ve summed up and analyzed its meaning perfectly. 😘

    I was shocked when I heard about Meat Loaf yesterday. I haven’t heard of him for a long while and he was still young in my mind. But hey, I’m not a kid anymore either. But it was still a shock.

    I have always appreciated the depth and symbology of your Vampire Chapters, Chris. Your tribute to Meat Loaf is fitting to the man who sang with incredible energy in near operatic story telling. I pictured him a modern Shakespeare actor able to tell his story thru Iyrics delivered in megawatts. The religious overtones are adept at telling our story of temptation before the false prophets who would lead us into Babylon’s pleasures and thus sacrifice our soul to the Dark Lord dressed in white linen and wearing a plastic neon halo. As my hero Long John Silver would say; “Shiver me Timbers.”

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      I like your description of Meat Loaf as “a modern Shakespeare actor able to tell his story thru lyrics delivered in megawatts”.

      That’s a very apt description.

      And I loved his operatic singing voice.

      Meat Loaf was indeed Shakespeare meets Opera.

      And a touch of Christopher Marlowe’s Dr. Faustus.

      • Hyperion said,

        I believe we have captured the man, body and soul. Once in a lifetime, someone comes along that grabs your attention and doesn’t let go. RIP Meatloaf, you sang it well.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        R. I. P. Meatloaf.

        He sang it very well.

      I have your coordinates and have activated the transporter. I bet you haven’t aged due to the time displacement.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Where’s the whisky, Scotty?

      • Hyperion said,

        I do believe my teleport experiences have actually rejuvenated all my old dangling participles and elevated my metaphor.

    Yes, I think he is absolutely right in this thinking. Good evening and good weekend. Glad you are here.

    Never underestimate the profit motive. This I have learned the hard way.

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      And it’s because of the profit motive that Big Pharma keeps giving people vaccines that are unable to prevent the disease and in many cases outright kills people.

      • George F. said,

        Beam on over. Akira Vibe awaits you after a long hiatus.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Okay.

        Bill Gates sings, “I feel nothing but good vibrations…”

    A funny tribute though – well written as always,Chris.
    I thought then Amadues would have counted rice again during the funeral. He just loves food so much, that’s all … esp there should be a meatloaf on the menu as the ceremony …

    A protein packed tribute, Christopher.
    As a defiant Chinese virologist said
    to Xi Jinping . . .
    “I would do anything with a pangolin
    . . . but I won’t do bat 🦇”
