WHEN YOU’RE WEARY. FEELING SMALL.

May I have the attention of the class!

Listen up: “God gave rock and roll to you, gave rock and roll to you, put it in the soul of everyone.”

It’s true.

For Kiss tells us so.

God bless Kiss, they so badly wanted to be rock stars and absolutely were willing to give all they could back to their audience.

Too rare.

Too rare.

“You don’t have money or a fancy car and you’re tired of wishin’ on a falling star. You gotta put your faith in a loud guitar.”

A perfect rock and roll lyric, dear listener.

I know. The preening, the make-up, that hair, his tongue, what your grandmother warned you about, the peculiarities of those who join the Kiss Army, corporate influence, ignore all that, if just for a few moments, and enjoy the band’s embrace of life’s communal pleasures.

“You can take a stand, or you can compromise
You can work real hard or just fantasize
But you don’t start livin’ ’till you realize
I gotta tell ya
God gave rock and roll to you, gave rock and roll to you
Gave rock and roll to everyone
God gave rock and roll to you, gave rock and roll to you
Put it in the soul”

Never diminish truth, no matter where it comes from nor how it gets to you.

And rock on.
