Jim Steinman is a simply brilliant songwriter, responsible for the girl group Pandora's Box. He's better known for writing the lyrics to almost every Meat Loaf song that's any good. He's been described as "Little Richard Wagner", and sets most of his songs in a land where everyone is a teenager wearing too little clothing. He also worked on Andrew Lloyd Weber's Whistle Down the Wind. It may seem at times that he's got only one song in him, but if that's so, it's a damned fine one.
