Shrek 2 - I Need A Hero

Holding Out for a Hero is a popular song by Bonnie Tyler. It was used in various movies, but one of the movies that it used is where it's used as a distraction/battle song for Shrek 2 where Fairy Godmother sings this for Fiona and Charming(claiming he's Shrek after he drank the potion to turn human) while Shrek(in his human form) and his friends storm the castle so Shrek can rescue his wife. In "MCF: The Pumpkin Singer", the Shrek 2 version is sung by Raina as she and the others distract Awesome and stall his wedding to Bella long enough for Jacko to come and save her.

Holding Out For A Hero - Frou Frou - With Lyrics

Where have all the good men gone And where are all the gods? Where's the street-wise Hercules To fight the rising odds? Isn't there a white knight upon a fiery steed? Late at night I toss and I turn and I dream of what I need

[Chorus:] I need a hero I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night He's gotta be strong And he's gotta be fast And he's gotta be fresh from the fight

I need a hero I'm holding out for a hero 'til the morning light He's gotta be sure And it's gotta be soon And he's gotta be larger than life

Somewhere after midnight In my wildest fantasy Somewhere just beyond my reach There's someone reaching back for me Racing on the thunder and rising with the heat It's gonna take a superman to sweep me off my feet


Up where the mountains meet the heavens above Out where the lightning splits the sea I would swear that there's someone somewhere Watching me

Through the wind and the chill and the rain And the storm and the flood I can feel his approach Like the fire in my blood
