Bonnie Tyler - Total Eclipse of the Heart

Ninjas are always a great addition to a music video.

"Total Eclipse of the Heart" is a staple of 1980's music and high school anti-drug lock-ins. This is Bonnie Tylers only real hit. She some success with a couple of song on film soundtracks, but nothing matched the epic power of this song or the epic volume of her hair.

The song was written by Jim Steinmann, the genius songwriter behind Meatloaf's Bat out of Hell 1 & 2 including the twelve minute version of "I'd Do Anything for Love (but I won't do that)". Yes Meatloaf. Jim Steinmann has a habit of writing long epic hits.

Along with ballerina ninjas, this video features food fights and flying choir boys with glowing eyes. Its perfect. If this video doesn't make you happy, nothing will. (Witticism credit to Ani Loizzo) Share/Bookmark
