Friday Night Videos

Bonnie Tyler's "Total Eclipse of the Heart" is, in my estimation, pretty much the perfect music video. What's not to love? It's got dancing ninjas, leather-clad biker gangs, football players, some kind of weird S&M shindig and, last but not least, a bizarre "Village of the Damned" boys choir. And none of it makes a lick of sense. As far as overblown, melodramatic power ballads go, Celine Dion could learn a thing or two from Bonnie Tyler. Turn around, Bright Eyes!

Previously on Friday Night Videos... Paul McCartney.

Now Playing:


  1. Id' bet $100 that that song was produced by Jim Steinman.

    That is one BIZARRE video.

  2. And I just looked it up. I was right. Man, does he apply an amazing signature to the songs he produces.
