Video Valentine: I Would Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That) (1993)

If Hollywood really wanted a musical adaptation of "Beauty & The Beast", they should've called Meat Loaf and his collaborator, Jim Steinman, not Disney.

Disney's animated version, which featured talking pots, among other things, was made to sell toys and Happy Meals. Today's audience would've preferred something along the lines of what the esteemed Mr. Loaf concocted for his video for "I Would Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That)", the 1st single from his 1993 CD, "Bat Out of Hell II".

That CGI M & M's cover? Fuhgeddaboutit! Chump change, compared to this classic, the last of our Video Valentines for this year.
