My Def Leppard Pyromania cassette is about fifteen years old now and barely plays anymore, so I finally replaced it on CD. The CD liner notes actually have the lyrics this time and I was astonished to discover that many of the lyrics I’ve been singing all these years were wrong. For example, right before the first bridge in “Photograph,” I always figured he was saying “Phrenology is a farce to me.” Turns out it’s, “So wild, so free, so far from me.” Go figure.
