Two months ago, I put together a list of classic rock songs that should never be played on the radio again, songs from the likes of the Steve Miller Band and Elton John. On the flip side, one track that’s played all the time, but I never tire of is “Total Eclipse of the Heart,” Bonnie Tyler’s heartfelt power ballad about astronomy.
I like it even more now that I’ve heard it performed by Adele, or at least performed by talented impressionist Christina Bianco singing as Adele. And Bette Midler. And Julie Andrews. And about 15 other divas. I’d love to hear what voice she uses when she’s seducing the pool boy into her cabana. A classic diva move if there ever was one.
