Get ready, Bonnie Tyler fans. Your dream is finally coming true.
Total Eclipse of the Heart is WITHOUT QUESTION the best karaoke song in the world, and arguably Bonnie Tyler's greatest hit.
What most people don't know is that this song isn't about two people falling in love...it's about two vampires. The song's producer, Jim Steinman, revealed in an episode of Playbill that the song was a little more fantasy-based than we know.
"With Total Eclipse of the Heart, I was trying to come up with a love song and I remembered I actually wrote that to be a vampire love song," Steinman said. "Its original title was Vampires in Love because I was working on a musical of Nosferatu, the other great vampire story. If anyone listens to the lyrics, they're really like vampire lines. It's all about the darkness, the power of darkness and love's place in dark."
Now, with the solar eclipse quickly approaching, fans will have an opportunity to hear a legend sing a legend.
