"It's All Coming Back To Me Now" is a power ballad, written by Jim Steinman in 1983.[1] According to Jim Steinman the song was inspired by Wuthering Heights, and was an attempt to write 'the most passionate, romantic song' he could ever create.[2] Meat Loaf has said the song was intended for Bat out of Hell II and given to Meat Loaf in 1986, and that Steinman and Meat Loaf decided to use "I'd Do Anything for Love (but I Won't Do That)" for the latter album, and save this song for Bat III.[3][4] Image File history File links Its_All_Coming_Back_To_Me_Now_-_Pandora's_Box. ...

The song has had three major releases, all roughly belonging to the soft rock genre: the first version appeared on the concept album Original Sin, recorded by Pandora's Box; it was then recorded by Céline Dion for her album Falling into You, and her version was a commercial hit, reaching No. 2 in the US Billboard Hot 100 and No. 3 in the UK singles chart; and finally by Meat Loaf, as a duet with Norwegian singer Marion Raven, which was released in October 2006 and entered the UK singles chart at No. 6.

A music video was produced for each of the three versions; death is a recurring theme in all of these videos, fitting in with the suggestion in Virgin's press release for Original Sin that 'in Steinman's songs, the dead come to life and the living are doomed to die'.[5] This is particularly evident when the dead characters seem to be resurrected in the memories of the main vocalist.

Inspiration

Influenced by Emily Bronte's novel Wuthering Heights, Steinman compared the song to 'Heathcliffe digging up Cathy's corpse and dancing with it in the cold moonlight'; however, it is in fact about the 'dark side of love'.[2] Emily Brontë (July 30, 1818 - December 19, 1848) was a British novelist and poet, best remembered for her one novel Wuthering Heights, an acknowledged classic of English literature. ... Wuthering Heights is Emily Brontës only novel. ...

'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. It says that, at any point in somebody's life, when they loved somebody strongly enough and that person returns, a certain touch, a certain physical gesture can turn them from being defiant and disgusted with this person to being subservient again. And it's not just a pleasurable feeling that comes back, it's the complete terror and loss of control that comes back. And I think that's ultimately a great weapon.'[2]

The website All Music Guide called the song 'a tormented ballad about romantic loss and regret built on a spooky yet heart-wrenching piano melody'.[6] The torment is present in the song's opening ('There were nights when the wind was so cold'), from which the singer recovers ('I finished crying in the instant that you left... And I banished every memory you and I had ever made'). However, the defiance in the verses are replaced by the return of the 'subservient' feelings in the chorus ('when you touch me like this, and you hold me like that...'); this juxtaposition continues throughout the song. The All Music Guide (AMG) is a metadata database about music owned by All Media Guide. ...

'There were those empty threats and hollow lies
'And whenever you tried to hurt me
'I just hurt you even worse and so much deeper.'

Eroticism is implied in the lines 'There were nights of endless pleasure' and 'The flesh and the fantasies: all coming back to me'. The song ends with a passionate, quiet reprise of the chorus. Eroticism is an aesthetic focus on sexual desire, especially the feelings of anticipation of sexual activity. ...

In the interim, Steinman produced a concept album, Original Sin, with an all-female group called Pandora's Box. The album featured many tracks that would later be recorded by other artists, particularly Meat Loaf. Elaine Caswell was the lead vocalist for "It's All Coming Back To Me Now", collapsing five times during its recording.[5] Caswell has since performed the song as part of The Dream Engine at Joe's Pub in New York City.[7] Image File history File links It's_All_Coming_Back_to_Me_Now_-_Pandor'a_Box. ...

Ken Russell directed the video, which was filmed at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire. Steinman wrote the script, based on Russell's segment in the compilation opera movie Aria.[11] Elements include leather, snakes, tombstones and cockrings with shrunken heads, and the video featured Caswell as a girl near death - from a motorcycle crash - being ministered to by paramedics, fantasising and being 'sexually aroused by a large python and writhing on a bed that lit up in time with the music, while surrounded by a group of bemused, semi-naked dancers'.[12] When Steinman's manager saw it, he responded 'It's a porno movie!'[11] The two day shoot ran over schedule and budget, costing £35,000 an hour. Russell and Steinman even designed a sequence where a motorcyclist would cycle up the steps of a local church-tower, jump out of the turrets at the top, and then explode; alas, the wardens of the church refused permission.[12] Henry Kenneth Alfred Russell, known as Ken Russell (born July 3, 1927), is a controversial English film director, particularly known for his films about famous composers. ...

Steinman subsequently gave the song to Céline Dion for her album Falling into You, which upset Meat Loaf because he was going to use it for a planned album with the working title Bat Out Of Hell III.[3] Steinman produced the track, with Steven Rinkoff and Roy Bittan as co-producers. Bat Out of Hell and Meat Loaf collaborators Todd Rundgren, Eric Troyer, Rory Dodd, Glen Burtnick and Kasim Sulton provided backing vocals.

Dion in the "It's All Coming Back to Me Now" music video (1996).

Nigel Dick directed the music video for Dion's version, with Simon Archer as cinematographer and Jaromir Svarc as art director. It was shot between 29 June and 3 July 1996 in the summer palace of the Czech Emperor, Ploskovice and Barandov Studios, Prague, Czech Republic; it was later released in July 1996.[14] Castle Ploskovice in Ploskovice supplied the exterior of the gothic mansion.[15] There are two versions of this music video; the full version (about 7:44 in length) and the single version (about 5:00 in length).

The video opens with a man dying in an explosive motorcycle crash, after lightning strikes a tree down in his path. Dion's character is haunted by her lover's image, which she sees through a mirror, and images of them together through picture frames. There are stylistic similarities to Russell Mulcahy's video for Steinman's "Total Eclipse of the Heart", to the extent that Slant Magazine calls Dick's video an update.[16] Dion is seen running alone through a dark, gothic mansion, with wind blowing through the open windows.

Several versions of the CD single were released in 1996. They featured the songs "The Power of the Dream", "Le Fils de Superman", "Fly", "To Love You More", and a live version of "Where Does My Heart Beat Now"; a cassette and 7" vinyl version were also released.[17] Another CD contained several dance remixes, although these attracted negative reviews. While praising its original form, All Music Guide said that 'as a dance song, it misses the mark...the final 'Moran' mix is a little better [than the other dance mixes] because the vocals don't pop up until three and a half minutes into the song'.[18] The Power of the Dream is a single by Céline Dion, released on August 20, 1996 in Japan. ...

The single version of "It's All Coming Back to Me Now" was included also on Dion's compilation album All the Way... A Decade of Song (1999), while the song itself was a smash hit around the world, reaching No. 1 in the United World Chart and Belgium (five weeks at the top), No. 2 in the United States, Canada, Ireland and Poland, No. 3 in the United Kingdom, No. 4 in the Netherlands, and so on. It sold 1,176,000 copies in the U.S. and was certified platinum, as well as being certified gold in Australia (35,000) and New Zealand (5,000), and silver in the UK (350,000). The track reached No. 1 in some other American charts, such as Hot 100 Airplay (two weeks), Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks (five weeks), Top 40 Mainstream (one week) or ARC Weekly Top 40 (five weeks). It also peaked at No. 3 on the Hot 100 Singles Sales. "It's All Coming Back to Me Now" topped the Canadian Adult Contemporary chart as well.

The song, however, attracted mixed reviews. The Calgary Sun stated: '{The song} is undoubtedly the highlight of her English-language recording career. Dion's over-the-top vocals soar and swoop around Steinman's epic, ostentatious arrangement. Not surprisingly, everything else that follows...pales in comparison.' Toronto's Eye Weekly said Steinman's 'fatal absence from the last Meat Loaf record is finally justified here', and The Miami Herald said 'Dion knocks a couple out of the ballpark...

Some other reviews were less enthusiastic. After labelling Dion 'a Madonna-meets-Meat Loaf vocal freak', The Vancouver Sun called the song 'intensely self-indulgent, pompously self-important and mediocre beyond belief, the song just never ends'. The Ottawa Sun called it 'turgid', while The Toronto Sun, ironically, said that it 'sounds like a Meat Loaf reject'.[19] Madonna Louise Ciccone Ritchie (born August 16, 1958), better known as simply Madonna, is a six-time Grammy[1] and one-time Golden Globe award winning American pop singer, songwriter, record and film producer, dancer, actress, author and fashion icon. ...

It was recorded as a duet by Meat Loaf and Marion Raven for the album Bat out of Hell III: The Monster Is Loose, produced by Desmond Child. Raven had been working on her solo album with Child, and was chosen because the timbre of her voice starkly contrasts to Meat Loaf's.[21] In promotional interviews, Meat Loaf said that 'I believe that the version that Marion Raven and myself did on this album is the definitive version.'[4] Marion Elise Ravn (born on May 25, 1984 in Lørenskog, Norway) is a Norwegian singer-songwriter and former child actress. ...

Meat Loaf cried when he first heard the song, which 'is the only time that's happened'.[22] He has also said that the song could refer to Steinman and himself, with an array of emotions coming back every time they work together. Referring to lines like 'when I kiss you like that', he said that although 'I love Jim Steinman', he wouldn't French kiss him!"[23] Two people french kissing. ...

'To me it wasn't a song about romance, it was about me and Jim Steinman. We'd had a load of problems with managers in the early '80s and all of a sudden after five years we started to communicate. After I'd been to his house, he sent me the song, and it was "It's All Coming Back To Me Now". Not the line 'When you kiss me like that', but the emotional connection. It doesn't have to be literal.'[22]

Meat Loaf's character mourning that of Marion Raven, in the 2006 video directed by P. R. Brown.

P. R. Brown directed this video,[24] which premiered on VH1 Classic on 8 August 2006.[25] There are similarities between the video for Meat Loaf's version of the song, and that the video for that of Céline Dion, with Meat Loaf being haunted by the memory of his lover. It is structured differently, however, with the story being told through flashback. Shots when Raven's character is alive have a distinct yellow tint, with a darker, blue tint for those after her death. Whereas the motorcyclist dies before the first verse in the Dion version, Raven's crash and resulting death is not shown until the final chorus. She flees from a masquerade ball (some reviewers have compared this to the Stanley Kubrick film Eyes Wide Shut[26]) in a car, which she crashes when swerving to avoid a man standing in the road.

This version of the song replaces the word 'nights' with 'lights', in the line 'There were nights of endless pleasure'. The ending of the single version is different, concluding with an additional 'We forgive and forget and it's all coming back to me now'. The album version, following those recorded by Pandora's Box and Céline Dion, ends with the female voice whispering 'And if we...', followed by four piano notes.
