This is one of the funnier Literal Videos that have swamped YouTube. Last year, I posted the ‘literal’ version of A-ha’s “Take On Me” by YouTuber DustoMcNeato. Today’s is by YouTuber dascottjr and it takes us into the exhilarating world of Bonnie Tyler’s classic 1983 “T0tal Eclipse Of The Heart”. The lyrics to this version don’t dwell on the original vid’s intense homo-eroticism, save for one or two lines (this was THE gayest music video I’ve seen up to that point in my life) but it’s still extremely funny in its absurd accuracy.
And, the original is still one of the greats of the 80s. So there.
