Seems like we need Bonnie Tyler more than ever.
It came to light last week that Tyler, who’s on a cruise ship that’s going to pass in the area of totality (under a full eclipse), will be performing her famous hit “Total Eclipse of the Heart” in what is the most appropriate use of the song in its entire history.
Ahead of the historic event, the singer spoke with “Good Morning America” Monday morning about her performance and even gave a little preview of what’s to come.
“I’m on this amazing ship called the Oasis of the Seas, and we’re going to pass right through the totality area a little later on,” Tyler said. “We’ll all be wearing our funny glasses, of course, and we’ll see the total eclipse.”

Tyler will be performing alongside Joe Jonas’ band DNCE on Royal Caribbean’s special “Total Eclipse Cruise.”
“Bonnie Tyler was a natural choice for this once-in-a-lifetime moment,” president and CEO of Royal Caribbean International, Michael Bayley, told Time last week.
“It’s going to be so exciting,” she said. “It doesn’t happen very often, does it?”
She’s right. The last total solar eclipse to hit the US was in 1991 and it only touched Hawaii. The last to hit multiple states was in 1979.
While you can watch the eclipse itself in all its glory, you can also watch the “Total Eclipse of the Heart” music video in all its glory. It’s almost as fascinating as a total solar eclipse.
