Nicki French: Total Eclipse of the Heart (1995)

I believe the Nicki French version of Total Eclipse of the Heart is better than the original Bonnie Tyler version. Before you criticize my music video selection, consider the lyrical subtext of the song and what that says about the feminine mind.

    This song always tended to activate a sense of nostalgia and emotions….yet I always wondered why it also always left me feeling perturbed. It actually is a very disturbing song when you read and listen to the lyrics.

      I should have elaborated: it’s disturbing to me as a man because although on the most apparent level it is about love lost (cold, unfeeling, etc), but on a deeper level, it is also about how a woman can seriously experience a very wide range of thoughts and emotions and impulses that are somewhat uncontrollable and frankly a little scary. For me as a man, that is since I have come to expect that most women impulsively will follow through on their instant needs and in a much more discreet and sophisticated way than most men. Kind of defeats the belief in a long stable comfy committed relationship….
