"Photograph" is a 1983 single by British hard rock band Def Leppard from their album Pyromania. Singer Joe Elliott often stated before playing the song live that it was written as a tribute to the late actress Marilyn Monroe,but he contradicted himself in a later interview and explained the song is more generally about "something you can't ever get your hands on". When released as a single it reached No. 1 on the Billboard Top Tracks chart and No. 12 on the Pop Singles chart.
Def Lepard: Hysteria Hysteria's highlight, still: the title track, six gorgeous minutes of thwarted desire and honeyed anticipation. With guitars skittering lightly over throbbing synths and Joe Elliott trying to persuade a girl who's just out of reach, it's as close as Def Leppard ever came to restraint. Brilliant and simple, perfect summer anthems for headbangers looking to fit back into their high school jeans. This album is fun for fun sake and surprisingly musically sound.
Def Leppard. My 2nd favorite band of all time. Went to see them in concert with KISS. Def was definitely the highlight of the show! (Kiss...well...was not...) Would love to see them again! They might be getting old but they sure as heck don't sound like it!!!
