AC/DC as a smooth, sultry, Erykah Badu-inspired soul song? Believe it. Bon Scott already sings the lyrics at double-time, really rapping more than singing, so a transformation to R&B isn’t that outrageous. And Phil Rudd’s monstrous drumming could easily translate into the kick drum-clap of a soul stomp.

That’s all the fuel the DC-based lowercase letters need to make this classic rock standard their own. Singer Alphie Starr’s smoky voice is wonderful to listen to, especially when double-tracked for emphasis. The rest of the band provides perfect backing, heavy on the percussion, with just enough guitar to keep everything moving in the same direction. The only disappointment here is that the whole affair lasts just under two minutes; get ready to make use of the repeat button on your player. (via Kick Kick Snare)
