March 10th, 1978, Meatloaf's 'Bat Out Of Hell' LP kicked off a long run on the UK charts, 416 weeks to be exact.
This was Meatloaf's 2nd album, and it sold over 43 million copies worldwide!
There were two sequels.
'Bat Out Of Hell II - Back Into Hell'  came out in 1993 and the 3rd version, 'Bat Out Of Hell III - The Monster Is Loose' was released in 2006.
Neither did as well as the original, but isn't that usually the case?

'Bat Out Of Hell', the original has been certified platinum fourteen times over.
Every song on that album is a gem in my opinion, but if I had to pick a favorite, it would be 'You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth.'
And with that, here's a video of the tune for you to enjoy!
