    Probably the only good memories of my Dad were when we'd both listen to Meat Loaf super loud whilst driving in his car.

    @ Tyranastrasz - I love "Life Is a Lemon..." but, while it's definitely heavier than most of his stuff, I think it's the total opposite of "uplifting." If you're looking for more uplifting, almost all of the original Bat Out of Hell qualifies (at least compared to II: Back Into Hell). Again, my disclaimer here is that I actually like II much more than the original...or anything else by Meat Loaf. If you want some combination of uplifting and more rocking, maybe try "Amnesty is Granted" or "Where the Rubber Meets the Road" off of Welcome to the Neighborhood.
