Def Leppard - Hysteria (Long Version)

Def Leppard - Hysteria (Long Version)





"Hysteria" is the tenth track on their 1987 album of the same name and was released as the third single from that album in November 1987. On VH1 Storytellers: Def Leppard, lead singer Joe Elliott revealed that the song title came from drummer Rick Allen.


The song features a clean guitar melody and heavily multi-tracked vocals in its chorus. The "extreme" nature of producer Mutt Lange's recording methods is also exampled in the chorus, where the clean guitar chords were recorded one note at a time as opposed to the traditional method of strumming them, in effect "building" a chord by recording the notes that make them up. The melody was also derived from Pink Floyd's "Goodbye Blue Sky".







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
