Olde Fashioned Sing Along - pt. 1

Last evening we gathered with some friends to play Settlers of Catan. During our game we began discussing horrible music videos on YouTube. We watched the video to "Total Eclipse of the Heart" by Bonnie Tyler. It is a horrible video but it accomplished something. The rest of the evening we were singing "turn around, bright eyes."

Have you experienced this? You are on your way to work in the morning and you hear a song on the radio. It sticks in your head and you find yourself singing it throughout the day. A few hours later you hear someone else singing the same song. You WIN! They are singing the song because they heard you singing it first. My wife and I play this game around the home. It's almost as good as Settlers of Catan.

I like doing series posts. I just finished one at Christian Cheese and I have done a few other series at this blog. So, for the next few days (or weeks) I will be posting song lyrics for one purpose - to get them stuck in your head. How many people can you get to sing the same song?

I will begin with this one.

Total Eclipse of the Heart - by Bonnie Tyler

...Once upon a time I was falling in love
But now I'm only falling apart
There's nothing I can do
A total eclipse of the heart
Once upon a time there was light in my life
But now there's only love in the dark
Nothing I can say
A total eclipse of the heart

...Turnaround bright eyes
Turnaround bright eyes

nothing is wrong with the song but the video is strange. my take is that she was a teacher at a school and had a romantic encounter with a student while dancing ninjas, a winged boy, and several people with glowing eyes roamed around.
