Who knew? There are people out there with way too much time on their hands. I no longer feel guilty for my feeble attempts at blogging. Those of us who remember, remember that there was an explosion of music videos when the media was born. And a lot of them were "artsy." Like Bonnie Tyler's "Total Eclipse of the Heart." What works about this is that they matched her voice pretty well. It's known as the "literal version" of the video. And it's a hoot and a half. Gracias to buymeaclue for pointing me to this bit of nonsense.



As a writer of speculative fiction, I found this work especially funny. Because, you know, we're often hindered by metaphors being literal. And I could just hear my editrix poking holes in the original video.

OMG. That was so funny. Ahhh, the 80s. I don't know if I'll ever be able to listen to that song again without laughing.

It's a romance thing, you know? Sometimes romance takes itself too seriously...go to RWA with that in mind. But yes, I'm not sure I can listen to the "real" version without inserting a few of these lyrics.
