A friend of mine just said today that the mark of a good, long-lasting song is how many bands cover it. His example was this one, "Thunderstruck" by AC/DC and covered by various and sundry other bands.
After finishing the previous post with a novelty fun take-off on "TNT", I figure we need some AC/DC. This is another band that exemplifies our contention that 99 % of good rock and pop was created in the English-speaking world.. The song in that post, an exception to prove the rule, is "Ninety-Nine Red Balloons" by the 1980's looking German girl Nena.
Brian Johnson sings the lead vocals in this song off of the The Razor's Edge album from 1990. Do you need the lyrics? No, I didn't think so. Weird, again, Angus Young's main guitar riff is in mixolydian mode.
