On this song Meat Loaf takes the character of a man in love with a prostitute, complete with the album's most R-rated lyric, "I can barely fit my d--k in my pants!" He told The London Times: "I am a big prude. Nobody understands what it took for me to sing that line." Then added, smiling. "I had to leave Meat Loaf out of the equation. I said, 'Meat Loaf is gonna leave now and this character is going to sing that line'."
Geffen Records made history on June 27, 1994 when Aerosmith's "Head First" became the first major label song made available for exclusive digital download. Download speeds at the time were so slow it took around 75 minutes to download the track.
