What Meat Loaf would and wouldn't do for love.

Meat Loaf's song 'I would do anything for love (but I won't do that)' has has generated much debate over the years as to what the seemingly mysterious 'that' might be. But in fact exactly what Meat Loaf won't do for love is clearly explained throughout the song. So perhaps the best way to explain just what he will and won't do for love is through the internet's favourite medium for explanation: the infographic. Each line of the song which references something Meat Loaf will or won't do for love is marked by either a green or red line and labelled with the appropriate lyric. The arcs mark when Meat Loaf references a previous line with a mention of 'that'. The vertical axis represents time of the song running from top to bottom, all to scale, except omitting the mammoth motorcycle intro. For a readable version, see my blog post here.
