"I didn't write Total Eclipse of the Heart for anyone but Bonnie." - Jim Steinman
''With 'Total Eclipse of the Heart', I was trying to come up with a love song and I remembered I actually wrote that to be a vampire love song. Its original title was 'Vampires in Love' because I was working on a musical of Nosferatu, the other great vampire story. If anyone listens to the lyrics, they're really like vampire lines. It's all about the darkness, the power of darkness and love's place in the dark... - Jim Steinman
This song is a challenge to sing. I don't like songs that anybody can sing. I like songs that need a lot of energy." - Bonnie Tyler
