The Best of the Best

There are a myriad of import Bonnie Tyler hit collections. This one features songs that appear on many others, but does offer a few highlights. Her biggest U.S. and European hits are here, notably "Holding Out for a Hero," "It's a Heartache," "If You Were a Woman (And I Was a Man)," "Lost in France," and her timeless, signature song, "Total Eclipse of the Heart," which sounds just as good (or better) many years after its original release. Buyer beware, however, this version of "Total Eclipse of the Heart" is severely edited, about three minutes shorter than the definitive, original version. Other highlights include "More Than a Lover"; "Save Up All Your Tears," which was a hit for Cher; "The Best," which was a hit for Tina Turner; "Don't Turn Around," a hit for Ace of Base; her passionate take on Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Have You Ever Seen the Rain"; and her cover of the Bee Gees' "To Love Somebody." There are better hits compilations on this artist, but this one is good for the casual fan, if they can overlook the travesty of the truncated "Total Eclipse of the Heart."
