Witness my current obsession.
Some of you may know it is from a weird ass movie called "Streets of Fire," which I rewatched a few months back. It's still weird, and makes little sense, and wasn't as entertaining as I hoped it would be. It did, however, remind me how much I love the two songs "sung" by Diane Lane in the film.
For years I had presumed she was lipsyncing to Bonnie Tyler, but in fact, it merely sounds like Bonnie Tyler. Instead, it is "Fire Inc.," a fake band headed by Holly Sherwood under the creation of Jim Steinman--who also created the genre known as "Wagnerian Rock," (which includes several songs by Meatloaf).
I always knew those songs all sounded similar, but I had no idea they were a genre unto themselves. Which leads me to the inevitable question: What are the Wagnerian rock songs of today?
