Nice little piece by AP here featuring Ellen Foley, who was opposite "Meatloaf" (Marvin Lee Aday) in that unforgettable duet.
“It’s got an unbelievable mythology around it,” she said, noting that people often tell her they lost their virginity to the song. “Which makes sense,” she said. “They were following the script.” (The song included baseball announcer Phil Rizzuto giving a play-by-play about rounding the bases and sliding into home. Rizzuto later said he didn’t realize it was a metaphor.)
I didn't lose my virginity to that song, but at our wedding reception 23 years age, my newlywed wife and I did an impromptu acted out lip synced version of the duet when the DJ popped it on. That was a lot of fun and something we'll never forget.
Long before that, his larger than life presence made quite the impression on a young 13 year old Freddie seeing "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" for the first time, although not the only one LOL...
