I Was Made For Loving You - Eero Eros
Well, it's now time for Frederik Friday again! Frederik recorded "Eero Eros" in 1991 for his album "Killeri". For this - and for the majority of the other tracks - the lyrics were provided by Jaana Rinne. She is probably best known for her work as a lyricist in many Clifters' albums. The original song was the classic rock anthem "I Was Made For Loving You", a smash hit for Kiss. It was originally recorded for their 1979 album "Dynasty" and released as the A-side of their first single from that album. The song is written in the disco style that was popular in the US at the time. Kiss guitarist and vocalist Paul Stanley, who co-wrote the song, has stated that it was a conscious effort on his part to prove how easy it was to write and record a hit disco song. You can see Kiss perform the song, here.
