Bonnie Tyler dominates charts after total solar eclipse

What song could possibly have reached the top in the wake of the lunar event?

Wednesday, August 23, 2017

The total solar eclipse earlier this week garnered a lot of global attention, but Bonnie Tyler might have extra reason to love it now. 

The once-in-a-lifetime event cast an enormous shadow which moved across almost the entirety of America from North Carolina to Oregon.

The last time it happened was in June 1918. 

In the wake of the solar event, a certain song by the Welsh singer shot to the top of the charts?

Can you guess which one? 

Yes, the aptly-named Total Eclipse of my Heart was played by the singer on a cruise to mark the lunar event, and it peaked at number one on the download charts shortly afterwards.

Most impressively, it managed to knock Justin Bieber to the second spot.

Tyler told ITV News it was "crazy" how quickly the song dominated the chart, and how it had been "manic" since.
