Songfacts®:

  • Paul Stanley: "I love 'C'mon and Love Me.' I was talking to someone on how to be a better songwriter. But you can also lose the essence and purity of what made you in the beginning 'cause what you did early on was based on free association, just purging yourself and cool stuff would come out. 'C'mon 'N Love Me' was written like that. It was very autobiographical and very much a point of view of a lifestyle that I was living but it wasn't a calculated study. It was basically just spitting out a song. I really liked it, still do, the verse, the chorus, the whole thing. That's the first time I played lead guitar on a Kiss song, that's me playing the lead at the beginning!" >>

  • This playful song is a great example of Kiss' blend of rock and pop with sexually suggestive lyrics. It became a crowd favorite and was a regular at their concerts in the '70s.
  • Kiss guitarist Paul Stanley sang the famous opening verse of the song: "She's a dancer, a romancer, I'm a Capricorn and she is a Cancer." Stanley was born on January 20, which technically makes him an Aquarius, but we'll give him poetic liberty on this one. >>

  • Montrose from IllinoisThe Elder blows like the wind. Kiss best stuff is from their first 6 albums and Alive versions, and I really like Hotter than Hell the best of those. Like many early Kiss songs this song has a catchy riff. This is good work by Paul although Ace will always be my favorite member. He made their sound.
  • Laurent from Manama, BahrainI love DTK. It is one of the band's very best record. This particular song is really good. Stanley is the heart and soul of KISS, the real artist in the band. He deserves much more kudos and credibility that what he receives. A true legend.
  • Jason from Aurora, CoI agree with Norman,Decatur,IL. The Elder is a great album. KISS needs to play this album in it's entirety live!
  • Gary from Springfield, MoThat's Paul Stanley playing the lead break on the opening to this song.
  • Axeman from Melbourne, AustraliaSome GOOD tracks on Dressed to Kill!

  • Cam from Cambridge, CanadaIn 1975 KISS did a couple promos of this song and rock and roll all nite.The day after the shooting for the promos they took the picture of KISS Alive! on the same stage as the promos wearing the same costumes.
  • Norman from Decatur, IlFrank, How can you say this is an under-rated album.
    Unless you are refering to the Destroyer album as being the biggest one. I prefer the ELDER actually, due to the early opera style as with QUEENSRYCHE Operation mindcrime, and Tommy from THE WHO
  • AnonymousThis album was released in 1975.This was the bands 3rd album before they exploded with "alive" I agree that "lover her all I can" and "rock n roll all night" are smooth and tight! Dont forget about "she" What a great song! I would say that this is one of the bands best records Mike Crater From pottstown pa
  • Andrew from TorontoI agree with Frank from Staten Island.This album is catchy and moves along at a great pace with well written pop songs and very melodic accoustic guitar backing a lot of these tracks,C,mon N Love me,Love Her All I Can,Getaway and of course Rock N Roll All Nite.Need I say more?One of their best,in my opinion.
  • Tom from Fishkill, NyMy first band "Rundal" did a smoking cover of this tune. I especially love the line: "You were distant, now you?re nearer
    I can feel your face inside the mirror
    The lights are out and I can feel you, baby, with my hand"
  • Frank from Staten Island , NyA great song from a very under-rated album. Dressed To Kill is one of the band's best. This song is so cocky and cool. Paul Stanley is at his best!
