I was never really into these guys, though my older brothers loved them.  ::)  I do like "Beth", so that one got my vote.  :)

I only liked two songs of thiers period.  PARASITE (c. 1975) and BLACK DIAMOND (closes the debut album.  Ending to be heard to be believed).

About the only song of Kiss that I liked, "I was made for loving you" (Beth is ok, though).

To those not familiar with many of their tunes -

Guaranteed!! Most of you who like "Beth" would like "Everytime I Look At You". 8) :) Without a doubt!!

I've long since forgotten which album it was on, and I may not be remembering the title correctly, but my fave has always been "Do You Love Me"  (Firrst couple of lines were: "You really like my limousine, you like the way the wheels roll, you like my 7 inch leather heels and going to all of the shows, but....")

BETH
But I wish it was done by Tom Waits!

Actually, I've heard it was about one of the guys' ex-wives, but her name was actually "Lydia."  "Lydia, I hear you calling..."  Nah, doesn't work so good.

No, it was just a lyric that Peter Criss was experimenting with on the way to a show. He was thinking of calling it "Beck" but Gene thought it would be better to call it "Beth" so people didn't think he was singing about Jeff Beck. :) It's not actually about anyone.

About a week ago I listened to this song for the first time in like 25 years, and for some reason I liked it better back in the '70s.  I don't know, it just sounds so 'dated' to me.  :-\\
