Friday Video: “Rock ‘N’ Roll Train” – AC/DC

You ever try to pinpoint the moment in a song when the lyricist has run out of relevant rhyming words? Occasionally this moment totally takes me out of the song–like the writer has violated some agreement to put together a piece of music that’s about something–but other times it can be quite charming.  Best example: the midpoint of “Rock ‘N’ Roll Train,” when after rhyming fantasy, ecstasy, and revelry, Brian Johnson mentions a spelling bee, a tradition which has no obvious connection to rock ‘n’ roll, trains, or even (in all their vast potential) rock ‘n’ roll trains.
