“I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That)” is a Grammy Award winning song composed and written by Jim Steinman, and recorded by Meat Loaf. The song was released in 1993 as the first single from the album Bat out of Hell II: Back into Hell. It reached number one in twenty-eight countries, the first being Australia on September 4, 1993, where it stayed for 8 weeks, becoming the highest selling single of the year there. It also stayed at number one for seven weeks in the United Kingdom. The single was certified platinum in the United States and became Meat Loaf’s first number-one single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and on the UK singles chart. The song also ranked at #44 on Blender‘s list of the “50 Worst Songs Ever”.
It features a female vocalist who was credited only as “Mrs. Loud” in the album notes. She was later identified as Lorraine Crosby, a performer from North East England who regularly performs at holiday camps and social clubs. She does not, however, appear in the video, in which her vocals are lipsynched by Dana Patrick. Meat Loaf promoted the single with American vocalist Patti Russo performing the live female vocals.
