“Can I Sit Next to You Girl” is the debut single by Australian hard rock band AC/DC.
“Can I Sit Next to You Girl” was released on 22 July 1974. The version, “Can I Sit Next to You, Girl” (note comma), has vocals performed by Dave Evans prior to his being replaced by Bon Scott. In 1975, after Scott joined, the group re-recorded the song as the seventh track on their Australian album T.N.T., released in December 1975, and as the sixth track on the international version of High Voltage, released in May 1976.
Written by Angus Young and Malcolm Young, it was AC/DC’s first original song, having been recorded as “Can I Sit Next to You, Girl” (with a comma) with original lead singer Dave Evans just before he was replaced by Bon Scott. The Evans version was released as a single in Australia, and the band performed the song with Evans on the TV show Countdown. The musical arrangement of Evans’ version is different from Scott’s, and has never been officially released outside Australia.
This song was often covered at live shows by controversial Australian sleaze rock band Candy Harlots and appeared on their 1992 single “Sister’s Crazy”.
