"It's an erotic motorcycle. It's like Heathcliff digging up Cathy's corpse and dancing with it in the cold moonlight. You can't get more extreme, operatic or passionate than that." - Jim Steinman (songwriter)
"I was trying to write a song about dead things coming to life. I was trying to write a song about being enslaved and obsessed by love, not just enchanted and happy with it. It was about the dark side of love and about the extraordinary ability to be resurrected by it once dead. - Jim Steinman (songwriter)
It's about obsession, and that can be scary because you're not in control and you don't know where it's going to stop. - Jim Steinman (songwriter)
