In which there is a total eclipse of the heart


After hearing it performed on Glee last night, S and I were inspired to re-watch the video for gravel-throated, Welsh power ballad queen Bonnie Tyler’s Total Eclipse of the Heart.

I have seen this video quite a few times over the years, but I am still no closer to understanding what is going on.  There are many, many things that disturb me: the flying chorister, the wafting curtains, Bonnie gliding around the school at midnight, the demonic glowing eyes of the boys, the random ninjas, the  hint of an unhealthy relationship between Bonnie and the boys at the end.

But do you know what disturbed me most of all last night?  It’s that my wedding dress bears more than a passing resemblance to Bonnie’s white creation (minus the sleeves).   Oh god.  This cannot be good.

(Great song though.)

  1. Have you ever seen the “literal” version of the music video? It’s pretty funny, and it addresses many of the aforementioned disturbing elements.
