This is a great song, but I recommend the unedited version of Total Eclipse Of The Heart from Bonnie Tyler's Faster Than The Speed Of Night album. It is about two minutes longer than this "Single Version" and more dramatic. Jim Steinman's production and writing are top notch.

"Total Eclipse of the Heart" is bombastic, bat-sh*t crazy, and I LOVE IT! It only gets better with age. Jim Steinman is an over-the-top rock-n-roll genius, and Bonnie Tyler sings the hell out his melodrama masquerading as a pop song. Five stars in 1984, Five stars in 2013, Five stars Forever.

This was a record I loved years ago and just happened to fall over it again by accident. So glad I did.

I love this song. This is in my top 20 all time fav songs. No matter how I am feeling or what i am doing this is one of those song that I just love to listen to. This also bring me back to a great time where I had no worries in life. I have it on right now, while I am doing some work around the house.

If a woman's soul can be tortured, she has every right to proclaim her emotive state to the high heavens. Her exquisite nature - when agitated beyond reasonable expectations in a romance - becomes less than civil - she has to shout out her romantic frustrations to be heard correctly. This is perhaps the case with the now famous power ballad "Total Eclipse of the Heart"; sung by Welsh singer Bonnie Tyler; written/produced by the gifted Jim Steinman; backup vocals by Rory Dodd (who can be distinctly heard singing `echo'), Eric Troyer, and Bryan Adams. One can only assume that Pagan Norse sirens - gathering themselves from a swim across the tumultuous fjords - commanded the `backup vocals' in order to heighten the experience for one and all. Such is the case with our brilliant vocalist Tyler, whose presence alone is ethereal and whose magnificent voicing in this particular song - gave rise to the tidal wave that followed once this classic & epic song was released around the world to great acclaim and praise.

Suffice it to say that we can replay this song to our heart's content on any given, bleached out, saddened afternoon - and remove ourselves from any doldrums by soaking up again the powerful crescendos and decrescendos within this romantic Valhalla ballad. Can only assume Tyler is singing for Viking women-warriors throughout the land, who carry torches for their men (hopefully not to burn them where it truly hurts) and howl at the moonface of their melancholia rather than remain passive and complacent.

This is a great song, but I recommend the full version of Total Eclipse Of The Heart from Bonnie Tyler's Collections album. It is about two minutes longer than this "Single Version" and more dramatic.

I used to listen to this song all the time and when I saw the listing for it I was so excited, I downloaded and listened to it on repeat about 23 times... until my kids said they couldn't stand it anymore :) Thank You!!

I have always loved this song, and had the title wrong, but someone said the title on TV, and I quickly went to buy the MP3 of it. I thought it was "Turn around Bright Eyes". I'm so glad that I bought it!!
