Holding Out for a Hero

YouTube Preview Image… is my earworm of the day. I recently discovered that Jim Steinman is the composer not only of several great Meat Loaf songs, but also of Bonnie Tyler’s Holding Out for a Hero and Celine Dion’s It’s All Coming Back to Me Now, both of which I like immensely.

The funny (and sad) thing is, however, that a hero wouldn’t be much of a help for me at the moment. Instead, I’d need the Time-Turner device that Hermione uses in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Still, if humming the song serves as some sort of stress relief, I am happy enough. ;-)

  1. I love this song! It used to be one of my go-to karaoke songs, which was probably horrifying, but big fun.
    Rike, what about a hero with a working Time-Turner?

  2. Rike says:

    Good idea, but he’d have to be prepared to lend it to me!

  3. And what a pitiful excuse for a hero he’d be if he didn’t!
