Back in Black was written to remember Bonn Scott former lead singer of AC/DC who died in 1980. I remember listening to AC/DC in a high school English class where we had to write about the meaning of the song we brought in to play for the class. Sheri picked Highway to Hell and while Back in Black came later (I think), I noticed quite a few of their songs are about death or dying. My favorite line of the song is Forget the hearse, ’cause I’ll never die. In Bonn’s case, he lives on through his music.

Also, on a side note. Happy B-Day to my B! This song was their school anthem in 1982. They played it at run through starting the football games. Fond memories of a simpler time. To join in, HERE are the rules and ping back.

Back in black, I hit the sack
I’ve been too long, I’m glad to be back
Yes, I’m let loose from the noose
That’s kept me hanging about
I’m just looking at the sky ’cause it’s getting me high
Forget the hearse, ’cause I’ll never die
I got nine lives, cat’s eyes
Abusing every one of them and running wild

‘Cause I’m back, yes I’m back
Well, I’m back, yes I’m back
Well, I’m back, back
Well, I’m back in black
Yes, I’m back in black

Back in the back of a Cadillac
Number one with a bullet, I’m a power pack
Yes, I’m in a bang with a gang
They’ve got to catch me if they want me to hang
‘Cause I’m back on the track and I’m beatin’ the flack
Nobody’s gonna get me on another rap
So, look at me now, I’m just making my play
Don’t try to push your luck, just get out of my way

‘Cause I’m back, yes I’m back
Well, I’m back, yes I’m back
Well, I’m back, back
Well, I’m back in black
Yes, I’m back in black

Well, I’m back, yes I’m back
Well, I’m back, yes I’m back
Well, I’m back, back
Well, I’m back in black
Yes, I’m back in black, yow

Ah, yeah
Oh, yeah
Take my love
Yeah, yeah
Yeah
Ah, hey yeah
Ooh, yeah

Well, I’m back (I’m back)
Back, well I’m (I’m back)
Back (I’m back)
Back (I’m back)
Back (I’m back)
Back, back in black
Yes, I’m back in black

I’ve hit the sack
