Total eclipse of the mind ,is my recommendation

I hate that pompous Bonnie Tyler song, I hate everything Jim Steinman has ever written and/or produced. He's the Antichrist of Rock'n'Roll, the reason why we needed the punk/new wave/glam revolution.

The video for that song is creepy too; with teacher-student romance, a scene right out of a bad LSD trip , a partial lunar eclipse and that student lip-synching that vocal at the end sounding like a bawling calf.

How about 'New Moon on Monday' by Duran Duran (that's what is happening today)

'It's the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine) by REM

'Bark at the Moon' by Ozzy (he played it as the 2017 solar eclipse happened)

'Between Sun and Moon' by RUSH

''The Fly' by U2 (mentions a solar eclipse in the lyrics)

'Under the Big Black Sun' by X (title track to the 1982 album)

'Sun City' by Artists United Against Apartheid

of course 'Eclipse' by Pink Floyd

and more.

'Celebrate!' by Kool and the Gang, maybe : )

May I add Festering in the Crypt by Cannibal Corpse to your list?

There is no mention of an eclipse whatsoever, but crypt almost rhymes with eclipse.

How could anybody 'miss' the sudden darkness and temperature drop, let alone animals going to sleep and birds stop singing because they went to roost? We had animal science students from my university come to the city zoo where I witnessed the eclipse. Everybody could notice a 'change'. It came gradually then during the last two minutes of daylight the sun 'shrank' and then the eclipse totality.

Other songs:

At the zoo a DJ played 'Soak Up the Sun' by Sheryl Crow

'Here Comes the Sun' by the Beatles (which really should've been played after totality)

'Mr. Blue Sky' by ELO (huh? How about 'Ticket to the Moon'?)

'Moonlight Feels Right' by Starbuck

'Blister in the Sun' by Violent Femmes

and visibly missing was 'Black Hole Sun' by Soundgarden. So was 'Sun is Shining' by Bob Marley.

A few terms come to mind, "unreliable narrator" being the most favorable.
