The song was one of the band's few singles to chart in the UK in the 1970s, though peaking only at No. 50, where a 7 min 54 sec version was released on 12" single in addition to the shorter 7" version. The song has become a permanent staple in Kiss's live performances. The band's performance of the song at their 30th anniversary show in Melbourne, Australia, was accompanied by the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, who wore Kiss-style makeup with their tuxedos.


At first Desmond Child said, "Paul wanted to write a good disco song and I decided to help him with that. Paul started to write lyrics and chords 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.'"


"I Was Made for Lovin' You" draws heavily from the disco style that was popular in late-1970s United States. 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 Stanley, who co-wrote the song with Desmond Child and Vini Poncia, 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. Gene Simmons revealed in a 2018 interview that he always disliked the song because of his vocal part.





Lyrics


Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do

Do, do, do, do, do, do, do

Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do

Do, do, do, do, do, do, do


Tonight I wanna give it all to you

In the darkness

There's so much I wanna do

And tonight I wanna lay it at your feet

'Cause girl, I was made for you

And girl, you were made for me


I was made for lovin' you baby

You were made for lovin' me

And I can't get enough of you baby

Can you get enough of me


Tonight I wanna see it in your eyes

Feel the magic

There's something that drives me wild

And tonight we're gonna make it all come true

'Cause girl, you were made for me

And girl I was made for you


I was made for lovin' you baby

You were made for lovin' me

And I can't get enough of you baby

Can you get enough of me


I was made for lovin' you baby

You were made for lovin' me

And I can give it all to you baby

Can you give it all to me


Oh, can't get enough, oh, oh

I can't get enough, oh, oh

I can't get enough

Yeah, ha


Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do

Do, do, do, do, do, do, do

Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do

Do, do, do, do, do, do, do


I was made for lovin' you baby

You were made for lovin' me

And I can't get enough of you baby

Can you get enough of me


Oh, I was made, you were made

I can't get enough

No, I can't get enough


I was made for lovin' you baby

You were made for lovin' me

And I can't get enough of you baby

Can you get enough of me


I was made for lovin' you baby

You were made for lovin' me

And I can give it all to you baby
