Def Leppard launch new Pour Some Sugar On Me lyric video

As Def Leppard gear up for the release of the first in a series of career-spanning box sets, a new lyric video for Pour Some Sugar On Me finds its way to the internet

With the release of Volume One – the first in a series of career-spanning box sets –little more than a month away, Def Leppard have released a previously unseen lyric video for their 1988 hit Pour Some Sugar On Me. Originally released on the previous year’s Hysteria album, it was the song that sent the album from a mere three million sales to the chart-topping, record-shattering, diamond disc behemoth we’re familiar with today.

“The song became a hit because strippers in Florida started requesting it on the local radio station,” Phil Collen told us in 2016. “It had a second lease of life. Hysteria was all over bar the shouting, and then all of a sudden this song just got popular, and then the album went to Number One. It’s really funny how it suddenly became cool because it was a stripping song.”

Teenage Cancer Trust

Teenage Cancer Trust makes sure the seven young people aged 13 to 24 diagnosed with cancer every day don’t face it alone. They help young people and their families deal with the many ways cancer affects your body, mind and life. They work in partnership with the NHS, providing expert staff and specialist units in Principal Treatment Centres for cancer and bring young people together so they can support each other. They also give presentations in schools so young people understand more about cancer and go to the doctor earlier. And they help medical professionals and politicians understand why young people with cancer need specific support. Almost half of young people with cancer are not treated in their units. Instead they are treated in hospitals where there isn’t the same level of expertise, and where they might never meet another young person with cancer. This is a scary and lonely experience, and it must change. They’re building a wider Nursing & Support Service within the NHS to help all young people, wherever they receive treatment.
