Radio 80, side A, track 10: “Love Bites” by Def Leppard

Def Leppard - Love BitesOh, Def Leppard, it’s no surprise that this one was on BOB.  As I wrote a few times, this song was on the radio pretty much constantly back in ’88.  I grew a little tired of it back then, but a couple decades gives a man some time to get some distance and re-appreciate that which he once loved.  I don’t know if love does indeed bite, Def Leppard, but I if biting is a good thing, then this song bites.

  1. Oh man, that song, it can not get any more – 80’s style – intense than this. What a build up!! I saw this hilarious documentary where the singer said he had to push the enveloppe by letting his voice linger (Love bitesaaaaaah, love bleedssaaah), cause “you gotta appeal to the chicks, man”. And I am ashamed to say, it did kinda sorta work, for the 9 year-old me.
