If you're gonna take a break to watch Monday's solar eclipse, you might as well have a soundtrack to go along with it.

Here's a list of 15 songs — and a couple bonus tracks — to play as the sky darkens. Sorry Bonnie Tyler fans, but "Total Eclipse of the Heart" did NOT make it onto list...you've probably heard it referenced more than enough in the past week or so.

This list, which is in no particular order, ranges from rock to country and should get you through at least part of the big event. Pretty sure there are a bunch of eclipse-worthy songs that were left off the list as well. It happens. So grab your solar eclipse glasses, and start listening.
