– ‘TOUCH TOO MUCH‘ – (‘HIGHWAY TO HELL’ / )



From the seminal _‘HIGHWAY TO HELL’_ album, _‘TOUCH TO MUCH’_is one of the most underrated AC/DC songs ever. The song talks aboutthe dangers of excess, which the band was quite familiar with wildparties, lots of girls and drinking. Ironically BON SCOTT drankhimself to death, 6 months later after _‘TOUCH TO MUCH’_ wasreleased, and 12 days after his last performance of the same song on_‘Top of the Pops’_.The cover of the single in many territories was released with the bandphotograph reversed, incorrectly showing the YOUNG Brothers andbassist CLIFF WILLIAMS as playing left-handed.------------------------- 

THE JACK



_The Jack_ is beloved as the song that most inspires fans at AC/DClive shows to get up and flash their bewbs, but when Bon Scott wrotethe lyrics “She’s got The Jack”, he was not, as many mistakenlybelieve, referring to the well known suit of cards, or even to thebrand of Tennessee Whiskey known to be quite popular among rock n’rollers.He was, in fact, referring to Gonorrhoea, the venereal disease, whichwas affectionately referred to as “The Jack” in 1970’s Aussieslang.

LIVE WIRE



_“Like a hot rod baby? Oh stick this in your fuse box”_In this scenario, the “hot rod” is Bon Scott’s dick, while the“fuse box” is the unspecified sexual orifice of your choosing.The titular “Live Wire” is also Bon Scott’s dick, as is the“circuit” which the singer mentions later down the track, andcordially invites you to “soak”.

– ‘LIVE WIRE‘ – (‘T.N.T.’ / )



Maybe the best song on _‘T.N.T.’_ / _‘HIGH VOLTAGE’_ albums ,combined with a memorable lyric: _‘Well if you’re lookin’ for
trouble / I’m the man to see / If you’re lookin’ for satisfaction / I’m satisfaction guaranteed / I’m as cool as a bodyon ice / Or hotter than a rollin’ dice / Send you to heaven / Takeyou to hell / I ain’t foolin’ / Can’t you tell.’__‘LIVE WIRE’_ during BON SCOTT era, was the opener song for manyof their shows. Sadly, the song has been retired throughout BRIANJOHNSON’S era. musiclipse.com -------------------------
