Total Eclipse of the Heart
Last night my lovely friend Colleen suggested we do karaoke sometime soon at this hipster bar in Detroit called The Comet. I'm *not* a karaoke person, so she was attempting to cajole me by suggesting songs we could perform that might sway me. She suggested *Total Eclipse of the Heart, which reminded me of one of the greatest performances I have ever seen -- Kiki & Herb's. Now I know a few others have performed this -- it's a karaoke staple I believe -- but none can even dare approach this incredible version. You can listen to it here . And big thanks to our professor Dana Seitler for showing the video of it in our Queer theory seminar last year. Truly amazing.
