If you don’t know Jim Steinman, you know his work: longtime collaborator with Meat Loaf and songwriter/producer of rock and roll symphonies such as:
- Total Eclipse of the Heart by Bonnie Tyler
- It’s All Coming Back To Me Now by Celine Dion
- Nowhere Fast & Tonight Is What It Means to Be Young from the film Streets of Fire
Related to all this is a singer named Rory Dodd. He sang backup on a lot of Steinman works (including Meat Loaf) and is most notably the singer of the “turn around, bright eyes” lyric in Total Eclipse of the Heart. It also turns out that Rory is the voice in the tv ad for…Hungry Hungry Hippos.
