Bonnie Tyler Just Sang 'Total Eclipse of the Heart' During The Eclipse

Bonnie Tyler

But here we are!

"Total Eclipse of the Heart" is also ahead of other popular songs from artists Liam Payne and Justin Bieber, which fell to numbers 3 and 4.

Interest in Tyler's signature song typically surges whenever there is an eclipse - which happen on average every year and a half somewhere around the globe. Tyler then claimed "Total Eclipse of The Heart" helps lend cosmic perspective by reminding us of the wonders of the universe. "It's a powerful ballad and everybody loves to sing it", she told CNN's John Berman, who asked her for her favorite line.

Though this classic heartbreak anthem is timeless, it feels particularly appropriate to blast today, as the first solar eclipse visible throughout the United States since 1979 transpires. The cruise, after sailing through the path of totality, will go to St. Maarten, St. Thomas and the Bahamas. "But "Total Eclipse of the Heart" has never really gone away, becoming one of the most beloved pop songs of the entire 1980s", said Rolling Stone.

A solar eclipse is when the moon passes between the Sun and Earth, the flawless alignment of which causing complete darkness for a short amount of time.

This spike in sales has meant Tyler's hit now sits at 1.6 million downloads.

Bonnie Tyler was a natural choice for this once-in-a-lifetime moment.
