Hood grammar x science explains it best:
You matter (until you multiply yourself by the speed of light, squared)…then ‘you’ energy. And that’s exactly what “Faster Than The Speed of the Nights” hit singer, Bonnie Tyler is:
Energy. And on this day, she-matter, still.
Music is timeless.
Lyrics are relatively universal.
The beauty of music is transcendent.
Just ask the universe and blonde bombshell Bonnie Tyler-known for her 80s classic: “Total Eclipse of the Heart.”
With heart-wrenching, tear-jerking lyrics being belted out from her emotion-filled, Joplin-like raspy voice—strumming our pain and singing many of our lives with the words:
“Every now and then I get a little bit lonely and you’re never coming
Every now and then I get a little bit tired of listening to the sound of
Every now and then I get a little bit nervous that the best of all the
years have gone by
Every now and then I get a little bit terrified and then I see the look
in your eyes
Every now and then I fall apart
And I need you now tonight and I need you more than ever and if you only hold me
tight we’ll be holding on forever
And we’ll only be making it right ’cause we’ll never be wrong together
Once upon a time I was falling in love, now I’m only falling apart
Nothing I can do, a total eclipse of the heart”
…there’s no wonder in just one day, the hot 80s classic return to this Millennium would shoot current top hits like Justin Bieber’s Despacito into another galaxy.
Reportedly, the song that served as today’s solar eclipse in the stars’ theme song-itself-took off and landed #1 on iTunes!
They say if you stay ready, you don’t have to get ready. From the looks of things, Bonnie Tyler was pulled from music obscurity and stepped right out looking just as hot as her days in the timeless song. You go girl!
