Can you name the underrated '80s flick this Bonnie Tyler appears on?



Are you holding out for a hero on Lost and Found? Well, turn around bright eyes as while it may not be heroic, we do have a cheese-tastic video for Bonnie Tyler and Here She Comes.

Bonnie Tyler first appeared on our radars in 1978, when her dirge It's A Heartache was a Top 3 hit.  She disappeared off the American airwaves until 1983 when she brought us one of the most memorable hits of the '80s with Total Eclipse Of The Heart. Her chart resurgence earned her appearances on soundtracks in 1984 as she hit the Top 40 with Holding Out For A Hero off the Footloose soundtrack and also appeared in a much lower profile with Here She Comes off the Metropolis soundtrack.

Metropolis is the 1928 silent movie that is heralded as one of the most important films in cinema. In 1984, musical genius Giorgio Moroder took on the project of restoring the film and creating a musical soundtrack to his restoration. Reception was mixed on Moroder's attempt but some pretty good music came off the soundtrack that included artists like Pat Benatar, Freddie Mercury, Adam Ant, Billy Squier, Loverboy and today's featured Bonnie Tyler.

While Here She Comes sounds a little derivative like a hybrid between Sweet Jane and Crimson and Clover, it did make the singles chart and peaked at No. 76. Eschewing the Metropolis theme, the video is great cheesy fun as it may not be Guardians of the Galaxy, but the rest of the English army is there to backup Tyler as she navigates in her puny European car in search of UFOs.  

Tyler is still looking good at age 64 and most recent album, Rocks and Honey, was released in 2013.
