Songs For A Hero Crack

“Holding Out for a Hero” was a top 40 hit in several European countries, as well as Canada and the United States. It reached no. 2 in the United Kingdom and no. 1 in Ireland.

Background[edit]

As the screenplay writer for Footloose, Dean Pitchford co-wrote every song on its soundtrack. “Holding Out for a Hero” was written with Jim Steinman, who recommended Tyler for the vocals. She was invited to the Paramount film studio in Los Angeles to view the film rushes so that she could capture the urgency of the scene.

The instrumental break first appeared in 'Stark Raving Love', a track from Steinman's solo album Bad for Good (1981).

Critical reception[edit]

In a retrospective review, The A.V. Club's William Hughes stated that the song 'displays some of the worst of its decade’s (and composer’s) typical excesses: The lyrics are laughable, and the heavy-handed synths and piano riffs come dangerously close to cheese', but adds, 'The sum of those parts transcends their limitations, hooking directly into pure emotional need like only the greatest of torch songs can.'[1]

Writing in Metal Hammer the song was described by Paul Stenning as 'the ultimate rock anthem', stating 'Only Jim Steinman can get away with such bombastic overtones, in this case the perfect coupling with Tyler's inimitable voice.'[2]

Music video[edit]

The accompanying music video for “Holding Out for a Hero” was produced by Jeffrey Abelson, and directed by Doug Dowdle, with the concept by Keith Williams. It was filmed at the Grand Canyon, Arizona, and at Veluzat Ranch, California.[3] It was the second video, released to promote Footloose while featuring no movie footage in the video.

The video sees Tyler escaping from a burning house; the video is set primarily in the vicinity of the burning house and on the edge of the Grand Canyon – interspersed with shots of angelic background singers in white dresses. Evil cowboys dressed in black, carrying neon whips appear before Tyler, threatening her; a cowboy hero dressed in white, brandishing a revolver, appears on horseback and the evil cowboys flee on horseback, with the hero in pursuit. As the song fades out, the hero cowboy appears in front of Tyler.

Tyler later featured in a parody of the video by David Copperfield.

Live performances[edit]

Two recorded live performances of 'Holding Out for a Hero' have been released on her live albums Bonnie Tyler Live (2007) and Live in Germany 1993 (2011). Video performances have also been released on Tyler's DVDs, Bonnie on Tour (2007) and the DVD edition of Live in Germany 1993.

That version would be featured during Monster segment of the Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games opening ceremony.
