Musical Interlude: Read 'Em & Weep (1981)

You were expecting, maybe, Barry Manilow?

While Manilow scored his final Top 40 hit to date in the fall of 1983 with the Jim Steinman-penned "Read 'Em & Weep", Steinman's favorite collaborator, Meat Loaf, recorded "Weep" first, for his album, "Dead Ringer", released two years before Manilow's version.

It's funny how this has been ignored by album rock channels over the years.
