SAN ANTONIO - This is straight outta' the "just too perfect” file.

Welsh singer Bonnie Tyler, known for her 1983 smash “Total Eclipse of the Heart,” will once again belt her No. 1 hit song -- but this time will be different: she’s going to sing during Monday’s rare total solar eclipse.

Guests aboard the Royal Caribbean's Total Eclipse Cruise will be treated to this unique performance, as the ship sails across the path of totality -- which is the shadow cast on the earth by the moon as it passes in front of the sun.

The last time the earth witnessed a total solar eclipse was in 1979, four years before Tyler’s song won a Grammy and became an insta-classic karaoke staple.

In the lead-up to Monday’s astrological phenomenon, the song has gained new life online, recently surpassing the 300 million-view mark on YouTube.

But a gentle reminder to turn around, bright eyes: unless you’re wearing special eclipse-ready glasses, you could damage your eyesight looking at the sun.
