Bonnie Tyler will sing "Total Eclipse Of The Heart" on board a cruise ship during an actual eclipse. "So if anybody hears unusual noises coming from my cabin while aboard ship, they'll know what it is", she warned.

She said: "I have a ship of my own".

The eclipse will take place on 21 August and last for around two minutes and 40 seconds. In case you haven't heard, next week, the world will be blanketed in darkness as we experience a total solar eclipse. During an eclipse. With one of the Jonas brothers. "I'm not anxious about things like that", she said. "It made me cry, because I loved it so much", she remembers.

Since this is arguably the most important news you'll read today, the story was broke by TIME magazine, who spoke with Tyler about this momentous performance. "But it's a handsome song", Tyler added.

While the bombastic song is a staple for any '80s power ballad playlists, it spikes in popularity whenever an eclipse is about.

The celestial event will be the first total solar eclipse in 99 years to cut a coast-to-coast path across the United States.

If you can't get Tyler's song out of your brain, embed it still further by watching this hilarious literal video, which fills out the tune with words describing what's going on in the tune's delightfully freakish music video, to hilarious results. "It was snowing on the ground, and I had to run barefoot", Tyler remembered of making the clip.

The optimal viewing area along the eclipse's path stretches across the country from OR to SC before passing over the Atlantic Ocean.
