Music Monday: Hysteria by Def Leppard

Music Monday is a meme that was created by Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song and/or video and share it on Monday.

 

Thoughts and other ramblings

Someone mentioned Def Leppard over the weekend on Twitter, and I immediately had to go and listen to their Hysteria album. When I was a kid, my dad used to have a t-shirt with the Hysteria cover on it. I had no idea what it was, but I LOVED that design. It didn’t take long to liberate it from my father and declare it to be mine. I slept in that one until it had more holes in it than fabric. For a few years I had no idea Def Leppard was actually a band. Until Animal somehow popped up on a playlist. And that was it. Though I’m not that much into classical rock music, Def Leppard have several songs I love.

Honestly, this day had been pretty crazy, so I think Hysteria fits quite well. I also just realised this song is one year older than me…

 

Lyrics

Out of touch, out of reach yeah
You could try to get closer to me
I’m in luck, I’m in deep, yeah
Hypnotized, I’m shakin’ to my knees

I gotta know tonight
If you’re alone tonight
Can’t stop this feeling
Can’t stop this fire

Oh, I get hysterical, hysteria
Oh can you feel it, do you believe it?
It’s such a magical mysteria
When you get that feelin’, better start believin’
‘Cos it’s a miracle, oh say you will, ooh babe
Hysteria when you’re near
Out of me, into you yeah
You could hide it’s just a one way street
Oh, I believe I’m in you, yeah
Open wide, that’s right, dream me off my feet
Oh, believe in me

I gotta know tonight
If you’re alone tonight
Can’t stop this feeling
Can’t stop this fire

[Repeat Bridge]

[Repeat Chorus]

Oh, I get hysterical, hysteria
Oh can you feel it, do you believe it?
It’s such a magical mysteria
When you get that feelin’, better start believin’
‘Cos it’s a miracle, oh say you will

Ooh babe
Hysteria when you’re near
Come on
