    Re: Bonnie tyler.

    I have always liked Bonnie Tyler, Darren. From the first time I heard one of Bonnie's song's I realised what an immensly talented singer Bonnie was and still is with such an amazingly haunting voice with Total Eclipse Of The Heart, which was so similar to Jennifer Rush's voice in a sort of way. Though in another way the first time I heard Bonnie sing was similar to the first time I heard Debroah Harry (Blondie) with Heart Of Glass which would of been around 1993.

        Another bit of trivia, she's related to Catherine Zeta Jones.

        I loved Lost in France...

                Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

                      Does anyone think that Tyler was a female version of Rod Stewart? The gruff voice they both have are comparisions.
                      Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!
