Dead Ringer for Love (1981)

Type :    


"Dead Ringer for Love" is a rock song performed by American rock singer Meat Loaf and American singer-actress Cher from Meat Loaf's third studio album, Dead Ringer. The song was written by Jim Steinman and one of only two tracks on the album produced by Steinman and Jimmy Iovine.


The song was originally written by Jim Steinman, Tony Hendra and Sean Kelly for the short-lived television comedy series, Delta House. Steinman reworked the melody into the song "Dead Ringer for Love" for the Dead Ringer album, while portions of the lyric would later appear in his "Tonight Is What It Means to Be Young".

The song was performed many times by Loaf but never by Cher. There is no footage of Cher and Loaf ever performing this song live together, and Cher appeared only in the music video.
The song performed by Loaf is available in two live CD's; Live Around the World and Bat out of Hell: Live with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra. The song was also used in the Loaf's Hits out of Hell and in Cher's Greatest Hits: 1965–1992 compilations.

The track was released in the United Kingdom in November 1981 and debuted at number 63 on the UK Singles Chart, it slowly climbed the chart and peaked at number five in early February 1982.
