    One of the greatest lyrics of any song I’ve ever heard I think.

    “I swore that I would love you to the end of time!
    So now I'm praying for the end of time
    To hurry up and arrive
    'Cause if I gotta spend another minute with you
    I don't think that I can really survive“

    That verse is Classic... I always loved that ... but also don't forget the narrative from the baseball announcer as he rounds the bases .
    My favorite line is ... " there it is butted down the 3rd base line the suicide squeeze is on " thats so awesome !!!

    If you grew up in the 70's you most likely had this album

    Fun fact, in the video for "Paradise By The Dashboard Light" the female singer is Karla Devito, but the real singer in the song is Ellen Foley, who declined to do the tour, where the footage for the video came from.

    I i developed my musical interests back in about 1974... I bought .. Bat out of Hell when it was 1st released in 1977 on a cassette tape... I was playing it on my tape deck while I was putting brakes on my pickup my mom came in the barn heard the song Paradise by the dashboard lights and lost her S### right there she poped it out and smashed it with a hammer then rifled through the rest of my tapes and did the same with my Hotel California & a Pink Floyd tape too.
    Luckly I had lent my AC/DC tape to a friend otherwise she would of broke up than band too....lol
