The Zen of AC/DC

AC/DC, 1975.
AC/DC, 1975.

Blissed out from 5:00am yoga.  Savoring the stillness back at the house.  Freshly brewed coffee steaming in my cup.  Is that a bluejay on the fence?

In the background, barely audible:

Ridin’ down the highway
Goin’ to a show

Is that my radio?

Stop in all the by-ways
Playin’ rock ‘n’ roll

Turn the dial to the right, just a bit.

Gettin’ robbed
Gettin’ stoned

Turn the dial up to 3.  Shhh, quiet.

Gettin’ beat up
Broken boned….

Up to 6.  Sorry.

If you think it’s easy doin’ one night stands
Try playin’ in a rock ‘n’ roll band

10. Subwoofers engaged.  Somebody stop me.

It’s a long way to the top
If you wanna rock ‘n’ roll


Drums.  Multivitamin.  Angus air guitar.  Where is that skirt suit?  Bagpipes.  More drums!  Don’t spill the coffee.  Bass!  Guitar!  Bagpipes!  Bring!  On!  The!  Day!

You’re welcome.

    Lovely. I always said that the mighty ‘DC were the best damn disco band in the world, and now thanks to your post I’m going to have to go put on Powerage and dance my ass off!
