One day late, the top 100 KISS songs begins!

Greetings, readers. Today I start my spring/summer blog project. Folks tell me to write about what I know. Well, KISS is my favorite band of all time. I’m going to share with you my top 100 favorite KISS songs, from barley passable to top notch. So…, here we go with the first 10!

100. Just A Boy – From ‘Music From The Elder‘ [ A medium tempo song sung by Paul Stanley. It makes the list at last place because of Paul’s horrible falsetto in places. I can’t even figure out some of the lyrics. However it is one of the few good songs on the disastrous  Elder Album. ]

99. A World Without Heroes – [ Another selection from the Elder album. Sung by Gene Simmons, it’s a hauntingly beautiful, slow song. KISS didn’t sing many slow songs, but this one is a winner. Listen to it once and you’ll be hooked. ]

98. The Oath – [Paul’s best effort on the Elder album, it talks about a young boy being transformed into a confident and loyal man and warrior. I think it’s the best song on the Elder. ]

97. Is That You? – [ The first song on the Unmasked album, it’s a Paul Stanley song about girls who use guys to just get what they want. On a side note; even though Peter Criss got the album cover, he was no longer part of the band. Eric Carr would soon join. ]

96. Torpedo Girl – [ The first Ace Frehley song to make our list, it’s a cool song about a guy and a girl having fun and probably have sex later on. ]

95. Naked City – [ A Gene Simmons number which talks about “older women who love younger men”, throwing their inhibitions away and going for it. ]

94. Young And Wasted – [ The title says it all, but it’s interesting that though sung by Gene Simmons on the album, Eric Carr, the drummer at the time, sung it on the video, KISS: ANIMALIZE LIVE. ]

93. Fits Like A Glove – [Okay…, this is as explicit and self-explanatory as it gets here people. Gene talks about how his, “snake’s alive”, and background vocals scream about, “wet dreams”…, it’s a cool song if you’re not easily offended. Snappy beat and good drums. ]

92. Under The Gun – [ 1st. song on the Animalize album, it’s a top-notch, fast-paced song sung by Paul Stanley. In this era, the band just loved writing songs about women, sex and their own impressive packages, and weren’t afraid to be blunt about it. ]

91. I’ve Had Enough {Into The Fire} – [The leadoff song to the Animalize album, a very upbeat Paul Stanley song about going for it, and not letting anybody stop you. It’s definitely my favorite song on this album.

Well, there are the first 10 in this long list. 90-81 will be up for next Wednesday. Until then, take care, love one another, and as always, happy reading.
