KISS bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons recently spoke with “Good Day Sacramento”, and was asked how he felt about the band’s 1979 album “Dynasty”, which has garnered both praise and criticism by fans for it’s inclusion of the song “I Was Made for Lovin ‘You”.
“I Was Made for Lovin ‘You” is a known “disco-type” track that was played heavily in dance clubs at the time of it’s release, and still is to this day.
“Well, when people talk about that record [being] hit-or-miss, it was a multi-platinum record, so that’s called a hit,” Gene said. “There are some songs that are pop[-flavored] — yeah, by definition it’s called a hit. ‘You know, I don’t like the way that guy hit that baseball, that home run that he hit.’ Idiot, it was a home run. So that’s called a home run. It doesn’t matter how you feel about it. These are semantics, but I’m not anti-semantic. You see what I did there?”
“I Was Made for Lovin’ You” was released as the first single from “Dynasty”. It was KISS’s second gold single, selling over 1 million copies. The single reached No. 11 on the U.S. Billboard singles chart.
