I was talking to this lady at work (she's in her late 40s) and she told me that she wrote ACDC's Thunderstruck. The story behind it is that when she was little on her way home one day and her bus got stuck on the railway and there was a train coming down.
She told me Angus young says he wrote it because his plane was struck by lightning? -.0

I was pretty skeptical at first but later I found out that she has many awards in Songwritting and stuff....

Anyways what do you think ?

The song is said to be inspired by lead guitarist Angus Young's hair-raising experience when a plane he was on was struck by lightning. However, Angus Young was later to say that it "started off from a little trick I had on guitar. I played it to Mal and he said 'Oh, I've got a good rhythm idea that will sit well in the back.' We built the song up from that... It was really just a case of finding a good title. We came up with this thunder thing and it seemed to have a good ring to it. AC/DC=Power. That's the basic idea.

I believe her.
I also refuse to give insight as to why...

Therefore, I am totally useless to you.
Have a good one.

Of course she did.

This reminds me of Friends where Ross insists that he wrote Jurassic Park (I think that's the movie he said...? Maybe it was a different movie.)

But yea.

Plus she has showed me some of her stuff and they're really good.
