'Total Eclipse of the Heart' Appreciation Thread

- This song is awesome to sing at karaoke.
- 'We're living in a powder keg and giving off sparks' is an awesome line.
- It's really cheesy. In an awesome way.

So appreciate, dammit. I know there are people out there on this forum who like this song.

Once upon a time I was falling in love, now I'm only falling apart

Jim Steinham wrote this song, right? I tend to like a lot of his stuff.

It's completely over the top. But when Jim Steinman does OTT, it OTT's right.

So do I. It was popular right at the time I was dating my very first "real" boyfriend back in high school. He used to sing the "turn around, bright eyes" line whenever we heard it on the radio.

Isn't the guy who wrote it the same one who wrote stuff for Meat Loaf? It certainly has his cheesy fingerprints all over it!

Has anybody seen the movie "Bandits"? This song is used to perfection by Cate Blanchett

Who was it that did the remake in the early-mid 90s?

yeah.. you have a great time singing that song on karaoke... and it is so full of drama

We have a name for that kind of songs... dramatic love songs from the 80's and late 70's : songs for ironing... because many of our moms or home employers used to listen to that kind of music while they were... ironing :P

I saw Bonnie Tyler doing this at a free concert in Spain last October. We got to the front row.
