if you hear “More Human Than Human” by White Zombie, you will likely recognize it. That was a fairly big song around that time (1990/91), roughly.

Stay well! :)

You are right @tmo, there is a longer extended version of the same song. Apparently, Spotify only recommended the single edit version, probably because the extended version is like 12 minutes long. But yes, I remember watching the music video when I was kid. It was epic!

Ah yes! I remember “What's Up?” by 4 Non Blondes. I need to lookup that song and listen to it again.

I remember the band name White Zombie, but for some reason cannot remember a song from them that I liked. Will need to look them up too. Thanks for the reminders as well.

I forget which version has the extended piano intro, either the music video or the album version of “I'd Do Anything For Love”, but definitely worth it to hear the one with the extended version, because that “piano riff” is so nice, and it's better to hear it for 1 minute +, instead of the brief few seconds of the other version :)

I remember this song being all over the radio and ordering Bat Out of Hell II: Back Into Hell via the CD's by mail service, with the Scotch taped penny along with White Zombie's Astrocreep 2000, and 4 Non-Blondes album with the song “What's Up?” (which the album may be called “What's Up?” – but should be called “What's Goin' On”). I remember them sending 10 CD's, and some were “filler”, incl an artist called Snow, with the album “10 Inches of Snow”, which I didn't like at all. Haha.

I never did pay the full cost of the CD's, as I don't think anyone ever did, and there was no age verification through USPS at the time, so anyone (like me) would just “X” the box stating I was over 18, tape the coin to the envelope, and send off for 10 CD's with the promise to pay them over time + order more in the future. Scum I was, even at 8 years old, lmao.

Thanks for the reminder of this track :)
