AC/DC – Touch Too Much

This is my contribution to Song Lyric Sunday for Jim Adams’s blog. This week’s prompt…Touch/Feel.

From their 1979 album, Highway To Hell. The song reached #29 on the UK’s singles chart in 1980. It did not chart in America.

From Songfacts

This 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.
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.
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.
Considering how many of their songs are about drinking, it is surprising that AC/DC guitarist Angus Young didn’t touch the stuff. When he was young, a bad encounter with Bond 7 Australian whiskey turned him off from alcohol.

 

Touch Too Much

It was one of those nights
When you turned out the lights
And everything comes into view
She was taking her time
I was losing my mind
There was nothing that she wouldn’t do
It wasn’t the first
It wasn’t the last
She knew we was making 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 kind of woman’s gonna drive me insane
She’s got a touch, a touch too much

She had the face of an angel
Smiling with sin
A body of Venus with arms
Dealing with danger
Stroking my skin
Let the thunder and lightening start
It wasn’t the first
It wasn’t the last
It wasn’t that she didn’t care
She wanted it hard
And 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 kind of woman’s gonna drive me insane
She’s got a touch, a touch too much

Seems like a touch, touch too much
You know it’s much too much, much too much
I really want to feel your touch too much
Girl you know you’re getting 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

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 kind of woman’s gonna drive me insane
She’s got a touch, a touch too much Writer/s: RONALD BELFORD SCOTT, ANGUS MCKINNON YOUNG, MALCOLM MITCHELL YOUNG
