Bonnie Tyler

Before her well-known collaborations with Meat Loaf producer Jim Steinman, Welsh-born singer Bonnie Tyler (born Gaynor Hopkins) performed off and on in her homeland with the R&B band Mumbles; nodules on her vocal cords prevented her from singing full-time until 1976, when she underwent an operation to have them removed. The surgery left her with a raspy, husky voice that proved an effective instrument and drew notice from writer/producers Ronnie Scott and Steve Wolfe, who became her managers. Tyler scored a number three hit with their "It's a Heartache" in 1978, but became dissatisfied as the two attempted to steer her into country music. When her contract ran out, she signed with CBS and sought Steinman out, hoping for material with his trademark epic sound. She got it with the ballad "Total Eclipse of the Heart," which was recorded with E Street Band members Max Weinberg on drums and Roy Bittan on keyboards, plus guitarist Rick Derringer and backing vocalist Rory Dodd. The song spent four weeks at number one on the Billboard charts and helped the LP Faster Than the Speed of Night sell over a million copies and debut at number one in the U.K., where the title track also became a hit.

Tyler then recorded "Holding Out for a Hero" for the blockbuster Footloose soundtrack, which to date has remained her last major success. She went on to work with Todd Rundgren and Desmond Child and recorded the European hit album Bitterblue in 1991 for a German label, which featured contributions from Nik Kershaw, Harold Faltermeyer, and Giorgio Moroder. In 1996, she released Free Spirit on Atlantic Records to little attention. With her popularity still high throughout Europe, Tyler continued to record albums, including 1999's All in One Voice, 2004's Simply Believe, and 2005's Wings. In 2012, some seven years after her last release, Tyler announced that she was recording a new album in Nashville. The country-rock-inspired Rocks and Honey appeared in early 2013. Prior to the album's release, Tyler also announced that she would be the U.K.'s entry in the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi

Check out the film Streets of Fire which also features a few songs written by Jim Steinman. Steinman wrote Total Eclipse.. as well as most (if not all) of Meat Loaf's songs. I consider Steinman one of the most under-apprec i a t e d songwriters of the rock genre. Great lyrics and tunes always take me back. Bonnie Tyler does him proud with her version (produced by Steinman).
Turn around;););) awesome
My favorite song of all times but no one sings it like Bonnie.
I don't want to die to this song......

I thought Meat Loaf sang back up for her on Total Eclipse of the Heart.

Bright Eyes. Wow. she's beautiful but she sounds like my ex's new girlfriend. Only no, his new girlfriend sounds like a guy when she talks. It's freaky.

Secret Dreams and Forbidden Fire was another terrific Bonnie Tyler album with Jim Steinman at the helm.
Brings me back
Such a great voice!
80's was the best decade for music. No computers to make singers who suck sound better.
this song gives me an erection

I had to sing a long with the lyrics!! still a great song after all these years! :)

Jim Steinman wrote this song, as well as Holding Out For a Hero, another one of her hits. He also was the major songwriter for Meatloaf, and if you follow the lyrics and music closely enough, you can't help but be aware of the similarities between Total Eclipse and I Would Do Anything for Love, and many other Meatloaf hits. The explosive passion in his songs brings these songs an immortal presence and dimension
If u post this on 2 songs by a female artist u will have the love of your life walk up to u and you and him/her will be dating by the next possible Tuesday good luck :) this really works so scary
Omg I fell in love with this song all over again!
This song is amazing. Love the album version most.

Who is the male singer on this song?
She gave a lot emotion into this song. Something many of the artists past the new millennium fail to do nowaday.
Raspy? Get real, Pandora! She CAN sing, regardless of that! I barely notice the 'raspy' sound. :P

Wondering what's she's up to? According to Wikipedia...

On 7 March 2013, the BBC announced that Tyler will represent the United Kingdom at the Eurovision Song Contest 2013 in Malmö, Sweden, on 18 May 2013, performing her new single Believe in Me. Her latest album, Rocks and Honey, was first released by ZYX Music on Friday, 8 March 2013.
