I Stole Your Love
by Kiss

  • Paul Stanley: "'I Stole Your Love' came quickly. It was kind of a sister song to 'Love Gun,' so it came around the same time. Again, swagger and attitude. That song was influenced in some ways by the Deep Purple song 'Burn.' There's an old standard called 'Fascinating Rhythm' which is what 'Burn' is based on. The songs I was writing at the time were of a certain type. I was trying to get closer to the things I liked in British bands that were my influences. And then, interestingly, once you had KISS play it, the song took off in a different direction because of the perspective of the players in KISS. So, if I had done those songs a hundred percent my way, they would have sounded more similar to those influences. That's the beauty of being in a band, each person brings their own perspective and takes it some place you might not." >>

  • Pat from Indio, CaProbably one the best Kiss songs of all time.
  • Mark from Lincoln, Nethe Alive II version is much better than the studio version, in my opinion.
  • Eddie from Acton, MeIn the guitar solo bridge, Paul Stanley plays the 1st half, and Ace Frehley plays the faster 2nd half.
  • Jimbo from Corpus Christi, TxFeatured as the 1st song in the movie Detroit Rock City. This is the song Jam's mom splashes herself with her red wine.
