Total Eclipse Of The Heart.

Another one of my Rock N Roll heroes Jim Steinman passed away yesterday.  He'll be composing some great new songs and singing at some fabulous Rock concert in Heaven.

There are lots of songs and records you will know especially Bat Out Of Hell with Meatloaf.  It's a best selling single an album and one of those records that you know every word when it's playing.  Especially if you all sing along to it on a car journey.

Jim also wrote this classic for Welsh Rock Goddess Bonnie Tyler.

Thanks Jim for writing and singing such great and memorable songs.


  1. Just had a little seance... Jim says you are very welcome Northsider!

    "Bat Out of Hell", "Total Eclipse of the Heart" and "I'd Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That)" were brilliant rock anthems. The fact that we can all remember them says a lot about his talent.

  2. Thanks Jim.

    Seventies, eighties and nineties Rock classics. They stand the test of time. Thanks YP.

  3. I love that song. Bonnie Tyler is brilliant - I saw her out shopping a few years ago, very glam.

  4. It's a classic Rock song the veg artist. Bonnie's voice is incredibly powerful. I once watched The Nolans at Blackpool Grand Theatre and Bernie Nolan sang 'Total Eclipse of the Heart'. She probably had the most powerful female voice I have ever heard live. Absolutely awesome!

  5. I never knew that Bonnie Tyler was Welsh! She does have a powerful voice.

  6. You really notice her Welsh accent when she speaks Debby. Incredible and powerful voice.

  7. Ah Bonnie T - brings back memories - and she's still a big hit round here.

  8. Yes The bike shed. "It's a heartache" was another classic of hers. I nearly saw her a few years ago 8n Killarney but something clashed. I also like Cerys Matthews. Brilliant Welsh singers.
