Song of the Day: 'It's a Heartache' by Bonnie Tyler


It's always funny to me when someone known for one song suddenly has a second "signature song." Bonnie Tyler 's "It's a Heartache" -- which made her an international star, topping the charts in 10 countries and becoming one of the biggest-selling singles of all time -- was somehow eclipsed supplanted by "Total Eclipse of the Heart." And I always assumed "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" was Pat Benatar's trademark tune -- but now I find people slightly younger think "Love Is a Battlefield" is, thanks to that classic video! Can anyone think of others? Maybe Bette Midler's "Wind Beneath My Wings" taking over for "The Rose"?

And to even other people, Bonnie Tyler is known for "holding out for a hero"

Juice Newton had this song in the Billboard Hot 100 at the same time but only got to number 86 while Bonnie made it to number 3. But a few years later, Juice arguably had the more successful career. Pat Benatar trumped them both!
