“Well you ask me ‘bout the clothes I wear
And you ask me why I grow my hair
And you ask me why I’m in a band
I dig doin’ one night stands
And you wanna see me do my thing
All you gotta do is plug me into high

I said high
High voltage rock ‘n’ roll
High voltage rock ‘n’ roll
High voltage, high voltage
High voltage rock ‘n’ roll

Well you ask me why I like to dance
And you ask me why I like to sing
And you ask me why I like to play
I got to get my kicks some way
And You ask me what I’m all about
Come on let me hear you shout high

I said high
High voltage rock ‘n’ roll
High voltage rock ‘n’ roll
High voltage, high voltage
High voltage rock ‘n’ roll
Rock ‘n’ roll

I said high, I get high, aaaah!
High voltage rock ‘n’ roll
High voltage rock ‘n’ roll
High voltage, high voltage
High voltage rock ‘n’ roll


Stars, bulbs….
Spotlight, put the lights out, turn me on
(High voltage rock ‘n’ roll)
(High voltage rock ‘n’ roll)

Wine, women and song
(High voltage, high voltage)
Plugged in and turned on…”.

Citazioni.

High Voltage is a song by Australian hard rock band AC/DC. It was first released in Australia as a single in July 1975, though it is the eighth track of their second Australian album T.N.T., the release itself was issued as a stand alone single. The song was written by Angus Young, Malcolm Young and Bon Scott, and peaked at #48 on the UK Singles Chart in 1980. In January 2018, as part of Triple M’s “Ozzest 100”, the ‘most Australian’ songs of all time, “High Voltage” was ranked number 95.
High Voltage” shares its name with the band’s first Australian and international albums. It is the ninth and final track on the international version, released in May 1976. “High Voltage” was also released as a single in the UK and various countries in Europe in 1976. Although Phil Rudd is erroneously credited with recording the song, the drums were actually recorded by a session drummer Tony Currenti, not long after recording sessions for the debut album High Voltage. “High Voltage” is one of AC/DC‘s most popular songs, and has been included on four of the band’s five official live releases: If You Want Blood You’ve Got It (sung by Bon Scott, 1978), Live: 2 CD Collector’s Edition (sung by Scott’s replacement Brian Johnson, 1992), Live from the Atlantic Studios (Scott, 1977), and Let There Be Rock: The Movie (Scott, 1979) – the latter two being released in 1997 as part of the Bonfire box set.
In concerts, this song has evolved into sing-a-long with the crowd. In the bridge where Scott sings ‘I said high, I said high’, this has been extended where both Scott and Brian Johnson repeat the word ‘high’ in ever increasing loudness and high pitch, to which the crowd responds with “high” louder also. That is followed by a discreet backing rhythm for several minutes whilst Angus Young does some improvisation on the guitar. During the 2010 Black Ice World Tour, images of Scott were projected onto the stage screens during the performance of the song’s chorus to commemorate the 30th anniversary of his death”.
