This song, which is about an unforgettable love, was written by the American songwriter, Diane Warren. It was recorded by The Cult for the Gone in 60 Seconds soundtrack. Aerosmith also recorded this song, but The Cult's version was ultimately chosen for the film, which stars Nicolas Cage and Angelina Jolie.
This song bares a striking resemblance to The Corrs' 1997 hit, "Only When I Sleep."
The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
