I’m not an obsessive, really. I just happen to like listening to songs by Jim Steinman. And with Spotify suddenly opening up a searchable archive of music, I’ve been making a list of all the various Steinman songs and covers that I’ve come across.

Broadly I’ve linked to albums where Steinman wrote and/or produced all the songs; otherwise I’ve linked to individual tracks. I’ve generally ignored individual tracks where he produced other peoples’ songs, unless they are particularly noteworthy. And there can be no argument that “Bad for Good” is the best album in the world. Ever.

Are you completely sure about that?

I adore Jim Steinman's work as well. Totally awesome.

The Bear was luck enough to "work" on the first Steinman album and has been a major fan ever since.

We hoped you might have listed something we had missed but no such luck.

Can't think of anything you missed.
Bat out of Hell is a total joy. We still have the "white" labile. Sometimes wonder what it will fetch when the kids sell it- 'cause I never will!

We’ve seen Meat Loaf in concert a few times, but I’ve determined that the live show never quite matches up to the recorded output. Well, to the Steinman-produced records, anyway.

I hadn’t heard the Streisand “Left in the Dark” until Kate suggested I search for it a couple of weeks ago. And I listened to Tyler’s “Making Love Out of Nothing At All” for the first time today. Makes me confident that there are other gems out there, still to be found.
