Wiki

"Total Eclipse of the Heart" is a song written and produced by Jim Steinman and recorded by Welsh singer Bonnie Tyler in 1982 for her fifth studio album Faster Than the Speed of Night. The song was the first single release from the album and is Tyler's biggest hit.
 

The power ballad remains Tyler's most successful song, peaking at No. 1 in the United States, Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom. At its peak, it sold 60,000 copies per day, and approximately 6 million copies in total.[3] It won the Variety Club award in the UK for best single of 1983.[4]

According to Meat Loaf, Steinman had given the song, along with "Making Love (Out of Nothing At All)", to Meat Loaf for his Midnight at the Lost and Found album. However, Meat Loaf's record company refused to pay for Steinman and he wrote separate songs himself. "Total Eclipse of the Heart" was then given to Bonnie Tyler and "Making Love (Out of Nothing At All)" to Air Supply.
