And I think that the best response I can give you about hysteria is that, yes part of the reason that it means so much is that I recognize that my producer Josh Harris and I have created a fresh take on this 80s Def Leppard monster hit. But also, I was not familiar with this song when my producer suggested it to me, and I didn’t realize that once I produced my vocals and heard the finished song how impactful it was going to be to me. I can relate to the lyrics, and the sentiment of the song at the time that I recorded it fit perfectly with the emotions I was feeling at that time." - Karine Hannah
