It was released as the A-side of their first single from the album; on the B-side was "Hard Times", a song written and sung by Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley. The song was one of the band's few singles to chart in I Was Made For Lovin You - Kiss - Love Gun (DVD) UK in the s, though peaking only at No.
The song has become a permanent staple in Kiss's live performances. Paul started to write lyrics and Stubborn Kind Of Fellow - Marvin Gaye - Marvin Gaye then I played the song on the guitar and said 'OK, we'll do something to improve this and make it really a good song. According to legend, the members of the band were in conflict with their producers, who wanted the band to shift to a more commercial sound.
In response, the band argued that lucrative disco songs could be written by anyone in a short time frame. The story goes that the song's demo was completed in mere hours after the bet. While the story is unproven, Paul Stanleywho co-wrote the song with Desmond Child and Vini Ponciahas stated that it was a conscious effort on his part to prove how easy it was to write and record a hit disco song.
Although Peter Criss appears in the video and on the album cover, he did not actually play on the track. As with most of the Dynasty album, session drummer Anton Fig took the place of Criss, whom Poncia had deemed unfit to play.
There is a bootleg audio recording of the writing sessions for the song in which Stanley mentions Criss's name a couple of times, indicating he was present during the arranging of the song. While not as drastic as the "Radio Single Mix", the length of the song is edited by some eleven seconds down to 4 minutes and 16 seconds. Like the edit, the beginning measures of the song are reduced from four to two and the harmonizing Careless Memories - Duran Duran - Arena the guitar solo is halved.
