Rock - Def Leppard - Bringin' On The Heartbreak


Def Leppard - Bringin' On The Heartbreak - Meaning of the song


"Bringin' On the Heartbreak" was written by their guitarists Steve Clark and Pete Willis along with lead singer Joe Elliott. It's a big rock ballad with a heartache theme:


Elliott sings about a girl who won't let him into her heart. A mysterious and unconstrained creature she is, driving him wild with her laughin' eyes. He can't stop thinking about her, but she's draining him, and soon he'll have nothing left to give.

Like the rest of the album, this was produced by Mutt Lange, whose previous productions were some of the most successful albums in rock history: Foreigner's 4 and AC/DC's Back In Black. Lange brought a new level of songcraft to Def Leppard, particularly when it came to memorable choruses and euphonious backing vocals. He stayed with the band through their next two albums, Pyromania (1983) and Hysteria (1987).

This is one of Def Leppard's most famous songs, but it failed to chart when it was first released in 1981, as the band was still flying just under the radar. After they hit it big with Pyromania, the song was remixed and included on a 1984 re-release of High 'n' Dry. Issued as a single, the remix helped bridge the four-year gap between albums of original material (due in part to drummer Rick Allen losing an arm). This time, "Bringin' On the Heartbreak" made #61 in the US.


Bringin' On The Heartbreak - Lyrics


Gypsy, sittin' lookin' pretty The broken rose with laughin' eyes You're a mystery, always runnin' wild Like a child without a home You're always searching, searching for a feeling That it's easy come and easy go Oh I'm sorry but it's true You're bringin' on the heartbreak Takin' all the best of me Oh can't you see? You got the best of me Whoah can't you see? You're bringin' on the heartbreak Bringin' on the heartache You're bringin' on the heartbreak Bringin' on the heartache Can't you see? Oh whoah You're such a secret, misty eyed and shady Lady how you hold the key Oh you're like a candle, your flame slowly fadin' Burnin' out and burnin' me Can't you see? Just try and say to you You're bringin' on the heartache Takin' all the best of me Oh can't you see? You got the best of me Whoah can't you see? You're bringin' on the heartbreak Bringin' on the heartache You're bringin' on the heartbreak Bringin' on the heartache Can't you see? Can't you see? No no no You got the best of me Oh can't you see? You got the best of me Whoah can't you see? You're bringin' on the heartbreak Bringin' on the heartache You're bringin' on the heartbreak Bringin' on the heartache You're bringin' on the heartbreak Bringin' on the heartache You're bringin' on the heartbreak
