"Breathe a Sigh" is a 1996 song by British hard rock band Def Leppard from their album Slang. It peaked at #43 on the U.K. Singles Chart. The single was not accompanied with a music video. In reference to the song, lead singer Elliot said in the album's commentary that Breathe a Sigh is "a massive challenge for [him] to sing" and was "tried a lot of different ways [in the studio], but none of them ever seemed to do it any justice", so Def Leppard "stripped it right back"[1] The song has not been played live since the Slang World Tour in 1997.
