AC/DC - You Shook Me All Night Long



"You Shook Me All Night Long" is a song by Australian hard rock band AC/DC, from the album Back in Black. The song also reappeared on their later album Who Made Who.


It is AC/DC's first single with Brian Johnson as the lead singer, replacing Bon Scott who officially died of alcohol poisoning in February 1980, though there have been allegations he succumbed to a drug overdose combined with alcohol. It reached number 35 on the USA's Hot 100 pop singles chart in 1980.


Johnson told USA Weekend that this song is for him the highlight of the band's catalog because "it was the first song I wrote with the guys, and it has a special groovy beat that won't let you go. It has such a special place in my heart, and I still love to sing it onstage. To me, it might be one of the best rock songs ever written - if I do say so myself."



Lyrics


She was a fast machine she kept her motor clean

She was the best damn woman that I ever seen

She had the sightless eyes telling me no lies

Knocking me out with those American thighs

Taking more than her share

Had me fighting for air

She told me to come but I was already there

Cause the walls start shaking

The earth was quaking

My mind was aching

And we were making it

And you shook me all night long

Yeah you shook me all night long


I'm working double time on the seduction line

She's one of a kind she's just mine all mine

Wanted no applause it's just another course

Made a meal outta me

And come back for more

Had to cool me down to take another round

Now I'm back in the ring to take another swing

Cause the walls were shaking the earth was quaking

My mind was aching

And we were making it


And you shook me all night long

Yeah you shook me all night long

Knocked me out I said you

Shook me all night long

You had me shaking and you

Shook me all night long

Yeah you shook me

When you took me


You really took me and you

Shook me all night long

You shook me all night long

Yeah, yeah, you shook me all night long

You really got me and you

Shook me all night long

Yeah you shook me

Yeah you shook me

All night long
