Bringin' On the Heartbreak...Def Leppard, 1981.
Okay, yesterday's post sort of jumped right in with the A-Z, neglecting to keep in mind that there may have been new visitors, or just busy people, who had missed my "Getting Ready" post, where I talked about my theme for this year...Angsty 80's songs from the soundtrack of my life! There were even some lyrics penned in 1990, by my own fresh out of teenagedom, hand.
Back to today's song...
I can still smell a little bit of the stale air that hung in the dark middle school cafeteria on dance nights. I can also still sense a little bit of sweat rolling down the side of my face. I can also still feel a little bit of angst as I searched out the object of my eighth grade desires.
How did Def Leppard get inside of our minds to know just the right lyrics to speak to us? Yes, I believed I was a secret, misty-eyed and shady. However, I so did not intend to bring on the heartbreak. In fact, I seem to remember feeling mostly heartbroken during those years, suffering from numerous cases of unrequited love. Ouch! You got the best of me.
