|Bonnie Tyler singles chronology|
"Here She Comes" is a song recorded by Welsh singer Bonnie Tyler for the soundtrack to the 1984 restoration verstion of the 1927 German film Metropolis. It was released in 1984 by CBS Records, written by Giorgio Moroder and Peter Bellote, and produced by Moroder. Tyler re-recorded the song on her 2004 album Simply Believe.
The song charted highest in Austria, peaking at number 13. At the 27th Grammy Awards, "Here She Comes" was nominated for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance, marking Tyler's third and final Grammy nomination of her career, following her two nominations in the previous year.
Jim Davidson of The Pittsburgh Press opined that the sequence in Metropolis that features "Here She Comes" is "the only right-on-the-money correlation of music and image," giving the rest of the film a negative review.
Tyler recorded a music video for "Here She Comes", which was released in 1985.
The video is set in London. Tyler, dressed in a black leather dress, walks down a cobbled road lined with statues of soldiers. She occasionally looks up to see a duplicate of herself, dressed in a white dress, standing at the top of a fire escape, shrouded in shadow. The statues come to life and follow Tyler down the road. Behind them follows a black car, driven by the duplicate of Tyler. She runs away from them as she notices the statues following her, and locks herself inside a garage. The car then breaks through the doors of the garage and attempts to run Tyler over. She escapes through another door and finds herself on a street, looking up to see a spaceship in the sky. The spaceship descends, and a car appears, which Tyler enters and drives away. The duplicate chases after Tyler in her own car. Tyler drives into another building, and as the spaceship flies above the building, the duplicate drives inside as the entrance explodes. The spaceship then flies away as the animated statues look on.
