"Bonnie Tyler has revealed that she loves
Crystal Swing's cover of her top hit single
'Total Eclipse of the Heart'"

Crystal Swing were special guests on Bonnie's recent sell-out Irish tour

The family band covered the song for RTÉ 2 show 'The Republic of Telly', and Tyler was impressed when she saw it online.

In the video, Crystal Swing defend their home from a gang of invading bikers.

Dervla Burke is chained to the stairs while her brother Derek has to battle them to save her and their mother Mary Murray-Burke.

The Irish Daily Star quotes Tyler as saying: "I love it. I saw it on YouTube, it's fantastic. I think it's really cool. I like the raunchiness of everything they do.

"One of my fans sent me a link to it because I wouldn't have known otherwise.

"I said I'm going to send it straight over to (song-writer) Jim Steinman in New York and he'd seen it already and thought it was cool."

See Bonnie on 'Saturday Night with Miriam' in the second video above
