KISS Mixtape

I love KISS but I have a hard time listening to their studio albums properly because I know them all by heart. Don’t get me wrong, I still love albums like HOTTER THAN HELL, DESTROYER and CREATURES OF THE NIGHT, I just need to mix it up a little bit. Usually I put the headphones on and press <Shuffle> on the MP3 player but I decided on a new playlist: pick my favorite song off each album! I left off live albums and greatest hits records except for Side 4 of ALIVE II, KILLERS and the 2 new tunes on SMASHES THRASHES & HITS. So here’s my KISS favorites playlist (song-album-year), you’re going to see some obvious classics but there should be a few deep tracks in there:
