Such a unique writer. I can't think of another song writer where I know who wrote a song, no matter who the artist was. Even made Celine Dion almost palatable.

I was a big fan. He wrote some great songs like “Life is a Lemon” that are truly unique for a rock song, and he was still incredibly commercially successful despite not following a template. When he blended musical theater and kick-ass rock, there was no one better.

I did not at all recall the wrestling connection, but here you go:

PWInsider:

Legendary music composer, writer and producer Jim Steinman's passing was announced today. Steinman passed away following a medical emergency early this morning at age of 73.

While best known for his work with Meatloaf and Celine Dion, among others, Steinman's career did bring him into the orbit of professional wrestling.

Steinman worked on the 1985 WWE record The Wrestling Album, composing and producing Hulk Hogan's Theme on the record. While Hogan would more famously go on to use Rick Derringer's Real American (which was originally written for Mike Rotunda and Barry Windham to use as The U.S. Express), Steinman's Hogan theme would later be used as the theme song for the Hulk Hogan's Rock N' Wrestling CBS Saturday morning animated series later that year. Steinman would later add lyrics to the song for Bonnie Tyler, with the song re-titled Ravishing.

PWInsider.com expresses our deepest condolences to the family, friends and fans of Jim Steinman.

I had no idea this happened.  The least they could've done is given this song to Rick Rude.

Also wrote "Nowhere Fast" from the movie Streets of Fire, which sounds like a MeatLoaf song from the music and lyrics. Which, sure enough, I found out he also did a cover of the song.

As Kriss said you know a Steinman song when you hear it.  I remember watching that movie and hearing a song(s) and thinking I bet Steinman wrote this.

Making Love Out of Nothing At All is a great song too.  Signature Steinman stuff... fast pace with rapid lyrics speeding to a crashing crescendo... and then mellowing out to a crawl only to do it all over again.
