Even though I wouldn't take it for fact, this is as close to a source as I can find: http://www.news.com.au/heraldsun/story/0,21985,20642893-5006024,00.html

"Regardless, Meat Loaf says Steinman sent him two songs -- Total Eclipse of the Heart and Making Love Out of Nothing At All -- for his 1983 album Midnight at the Lost and Found, an album Loaf decided to write the songs for himself.

Loaf's record company refused to pay for Steinman -- whose epic songs came with epic budgets -- and the songs were given to Bonnie Tyler and Air Supply respectively, becoming huge hits."
