You may or may not remember her from "Night Court", but you do know her as the woman singing in Meatloaf's "Paradise by the Dashboard Light". (She had a solo career as well, for example "We Belong to the Night".)
Old_Zircon I live in the bizarro world where We Belong To the Night is universal common knowledge but I've never even heard of that Meatloaf song.
