AC/DC - Touch Too Much - Meaning of the song
Released as a single, this became just the second AC/DC song to chart in the UK, following "Rock 'N' Roll Damnation," which made #24.
"Touch too much"is is about the dangers of excess, which the band was quite familiar with. They were notorious for their wild parties, girls, and drinking. Lead singer Bon Scott drank himself to death six months after this was released.
Bon Scott's last performance was when he lip-synched this song when the band performed it on Top of the Pops, a popular British music show. The show aired February 7, 1980; Scott died 12 days later.
Brian Johnson never sang this one live. The last time the band performed it in concert with Bon Scott was on December 14, 1979 in Nice, France. The next time the band played it in concert was on May 22, 2016 during their concert in Prague, Czech Republic, with Axl Rose singing lead. The Guns N' Roses frontman toured with the band because Johnson was at risk for total hearing loss if he played large venues.
Touch Too Much - Lyrics
It was one of those nights when you turn off the lights And everythin' comes into view She was takin' her time I was losin' my mind There was nothin' that she wouldn't do It wasn't the first, it wasn't the last She knew we was makin' love I was so satisfied, deep down inside Like a hand in a velvet glove Seems like a touch, a touch too much Seems like a touch, a touch too much Too much for my body Too much for my brain This damn woman's gonna drive me insane She got a touch A touch too much She had the face of an angel smilin' with sin The body of Venus with arms Dealin' with danger strokin' my skin Like a thunder and lightnin' storm It wasn't the first, it wasn't the last It wasn't that she didn't care She wanted it hard, wanted it fast She liked it done medium rare Seems like a touch, a touch too much Seems like a touch, a touch too much Too much for my body Too much for my brain This damn woman's gonna drive me insane She had a touch A touch too much Touch me Seems like a touch (touch too much) You know it's much too much (much too much) I really wanna feel ya (touch too much) Girl you know you're giving me (much too much) Seems like a touch Just a dirty little touch I really need your touch Cause you're much too much too much too much Seems like a touch (a touch too much) Seems like a touch (a touch too much) Givin' me a touch (a touch too much) Lay me down and touch (a touch too much) Seems like a touch (a touch too much) Seems like a touch (a touch too much) A touch too much, a touch too much, a touch too much Touch Come on and touch me Yeah
