Shock Me

On the band’s sixth studio album, Love Gun, Ace Frehley finally cut his first lead vocal. He’d written Shock Me after being electrocuted on stage, and sang it in the nonchalant manner of Keith Richards. He was one cool motherfucker.



9

Love Gun

Paul Stanley – who as well as singing it also played bass on Love Gun – once described this loaded ’n’ lascivious track as “quintessential Kiss and probably one of the five essential signature songs”. But is he talking about a Glock, or his cock? Discuss.

Firehouse

This song was preceded by Hotter Than Hell at live gigs, and sung by Paul Stanley while sporting a Kiss logo-embossed fireman’s helmet. One of Kiss’s earliest songs, it was written by Stanley after hearing The Move’s Fire Brigade.



19

Goin’ Blind

Only Simmons would sing a love song as creepy as Goin’ Blind, in which a 93-year-old man lusts after a girl of 16. Written in 1970 – as Little Lady – for pre‑Kiss group Wicked Lester, it was recorded by Kiss in 1974.

I Want You

Paul Stanley: “I wrote I Want You at a soundcheck on stage in England. There was something about being on some of those stages that just felt so magical because my heroes all played on them, and you kind of summon the spirits to enter your body.”



29

Calling Dr Love

This Gene Simmons jewel from Rock And Roll Over found its inspiration in an unlikely place: the legendary comedy trio the Three Stooges. The infectious ‘calling doctor…’ chorus was cribbed from dialogue pulled straight from Calling All Curs, a 1939 episode of their TV show.
