Solar Eclipse Boosts Bonnie Tyler Streams By 480%

Thanks to Monday’s solar eclipseBonnie Tyler‘s “Total Eclipse of The Heart,” enjoyed a 486% increase in streams.

In the 10 days prior to the 4.10 solar eclipse, Tyler’s classic was averaging about 233,000 streams per day, and on Sunday (4.09), it recognized some 307,000 streams. On Monday alone, “Total Eclipse of the Heart” saw about 1.8 million streams.

Notwithstanding streaming platforms, sales of the single topped the iTunes chart on Monday according to Forbes and Jimmy Fallon covered the song on the NBC rooftop on Monday alongside Heart’s Ann and Nancy Wilson. 

Monday’s eclipse was a rare, momentous occasion that brought thousands outside, some venturing around the country to witness the event. It’ll be another 20 years before most of the United States can witness the next eclipse, though for those willing to travel to Greenland, there will be another eclipse in 2026.

While many on Monday merely enjoyed the opportunity to witness the rare cosmic phenomenon, right-wing conspiracy theorists made ludicrous claimsonline that the Biden administration was using the eclipse as a chance to shut down cell phone service, while other religious zealots said the occurrence marked a time to repent and follow Donald Trump.
