The Making Of The Most Difficult Song: Total Eclipse Of Heart


Bonnie Tyler is a Welsh musician, born in 1951. She is known for her distinctive husky voice and her song 'Total Eclipse of Heart.' This song has managed to be considered the most difficult piece composed in the world. Why? Here is a short story of a loooooong time.

To start with, it took more than two years just to write the lyrics.

The song carries the signature of Jim Steinman.

And finding the melody for the lyrics took another 8 months.

That's why it is pretty difficult to find the notes of this piece on your own.

The composition process and finding a suitable singer was also quite challenging.

The auditions and search for a singer took 6 months.

And at the end, it was decided that the most suitable voices were those of Bonnie Tyler's and Meat Loaf`s.

And of course, it wasn't easy to bring these two together.

Exactly 4 months later, which was also the last day of the second year, the duo finally hit the studio to sing this song.

The most interesting part of the story is that the recording of the song, which took 2 years to finalize, was finished in only 20 minutes.
