Rare Audio: Bette Midler – Heaven Can Wait”

Mister D: This is a Jim Steinman song that Bette demo-ed in the early 70’s before she released her debut album, The Divine Miss M.  Meat Loaf eventually recorded it for his iconic “Bat Out Of Hell” CD.  This demo was produced by Michael Kamen. Rumor has it she thought the lyrics were too surreal and silly. Can’t prove it. Just saying. It was meant to go on her second album when it was all polished up.

Heaven Can Wait
(Jim Steinman)

Heaven can wait
And a band of angels wrapped up in my heart
Will take me through the lonely night
Through the cold of the day
And I know, I know
Heaven can wait
And all the gods come down here just to sing for me
And the melody’s gonna make be fly
Without pain, without fear
Give me all of your dreams
And let me go along on your way
Give me all of your prayers to sing
And I’ll turn the night into the skylight of day
I got a taste of paradise
I’m never gonna let it slip away
I got a taste of paradise
It’s all I really need to make me stay
Just like a child again
Heaven can wait
And all I got is time until the end of time
I won’t look back
I won’t look back
Let the altars shine
And I know that I’ve been released
But I don’t know to where
And nobody’s gonna tell me now
And I don’t really care
No no no
I got a taste of paradise
That’s all I really need to make me stay
I got a taste of paradise
If I had it any sooner you know
You know I never would have run away from my home
Heaven can wait
And all I got is time until the end of time
Well I won’t look back
I won’t look back
Let the altars shine
Heaven can wait
Heaven can wait
I won’t look back
I won’t look back
Let the altars shine
Let the altars shine Read More

MeatLoaf Shows A Reverence For Bette Midler In Upcoming Interview

Cobweb
Leftover Meatloaf: A Preview of Wednesday’s Full Interview
POSTED BY JOSH GROSS ON MON, JUN 25, 2012 AT 2:54 PM

In Boise Weekly‘s Wednesday, June 27, issue, we will have a story on an artist who is oftentimes accused of being more of a ham: Meatloaf.

In a blunt move, we asked Mr. Loaf if he thought he was still relevant as an artist. His answer was pretty amazing.

“There’s nobody out there that’s a driving creative force out there right now,” he said. “There’s no Elvis, no Rolling Stones, no Beatles, no Springsteen—well, he’s still around, but there’s no relevance to Springsteen. Most young people don’t like him, and he used to be untouchable. There’s nobody with any relevance out there. It’s not their fault, they’ve become cereal boxes. It’s the state of the world. The real relevance is in the rap world. They have more impact than rock stars.” Read More
