Song #5: You Shook Me All Night Long by AC/DC (youtube)
Before I write anything, I must give you a visual. This story takes place when I was a little tiny person of four years old. Here is a picture of me around that time.
My dad’s favorite band used to be AC/DC. If I couldn’t sleep, my dad would drive me around the neighborhood and put some AC/DC on the radio to get me to sleep. I became familiar with the tunes and decided that You Shook Me All Night Long was the best song.
One day, I stopped loving the song.
Not for reasons of my own, but from outside pressures. From adults. Adults never understand.
My mom dropped me off at daycare one day. I was doing my 4-year-old thing, and suddenly had the urge to break into song. So of course I started singing my favorite song, which says..
She was a fast machine
She kept her motor clean
She was the best damn woman that I’d ever seen
One of the daycare teachers heard this.
And promptly washed my mouth out with soap.
The only time I’ve ever had my mouth washed out with soap.
You’d think that it taught me to watch my mouth around adults, but it didn’t. A few years later in first grade I got in trouble for making a boy cry when he asked me on a date and I screamed across the playground “I would never go on a f***ing date with you ever!!!!”
