Music Video of the Day: Dead Ringer For Love by Meat Loaf, featuring Cher (1981, directed by ????)


Today would have been Meat Loaf’s 75th birthday.  Though he may no longer be with us, his music will live forever and so will his music videos.

In Dead Ringer For Love, Meat Loaf plays an amiable lunkhead who realizes that there is more to life than just beer and hanging out with his buddies at the local bar.  There is also love and, in this song and video, the object of his affection is played by Cher.

Interestingly, this song was originally written for a sitcom called Delta House, which was an attempt to spin Animal House into a television series.  If John Belushi had not been available or willing to play Bluto in that classic comedy, Meat Loaf was the second choice for the role.

Enjoy!
