My Sunday Song – “No, No, No” by Kiss

For My Sunday Song #136, We are going to talk about the 80’s classic “No, No, No” off the 1987 album ‘Crazy Nights” and the B-Side of their first single “Crazy, Crazy Nights”.  ‘Crazy Nights’ was a platinum selling album and might be considered as one of the bands weaker albums in some circles as they were chasing the trend at this point rather than creating it.

The song was originally titled “Assume the Position” (get your mind out of the gutter…because I am sure that is where their mind was with that title) and later it was called “Down on All Fours” (hmmm…I think their mind is still in the gutter).  The song was originally written off a riff by Bruce Kulick and Eric Carr put his stamp on it as well.  It was later handed over to Gene Simmons for completion.

The song opens with a blistering, solo by Bruce.  It is fast and ferocious and shows why he is so highly regarded as one of the best Kiss Guitarists!!  The drums are heavy thanks to the late, great Eric Carr and Gene finally has a decent song as over the last few albums, his weren’t always so stellar.  Well, really this is great mostly because of Bruce, but we won’t tell Gene that as we don’t want to hurt his fragile little ego.

I have attached the song below and you have to listen to the opening guitar solo and see how great it really is.  Let me know what you think and thanks for stopping by.  I hope you have a Happy Sunday!!

“No, No, No”

Yeah, I’m down and out, but don’t count me out
Listen here babe, gonna show you what it’s all about
It’s time for love, and you’re welcome to it
It’s a dirty job, but somebody’s gotta do it
So here I am, do you want me now,
just show me where, and I’ll show you how
I wanna know[Chorus:]
No, no, no – don’t say you won’t if you will
No, no, no, no – don’t say you’ve had your thrill
No, no, no – don’t say you can’t ’cause you can
No, no, no, no – baby don’t say no, no, no

What’s mine is mine, and yours is mine
Baby just sign on the dotted line
You got nine lives, like an alley cat
Just stick with me and I’ll show you where it’s at

You never lied, so take a bow,
that was then, babe, and this is now
I wanna know

[chorus]

Just when you thought it was s-s-safe
Gonna show you where, gonna show you how
Don’t stop me now, got my foot in the door

Ooh, don’t say no! Don’t say no! No, no, no!

[chorus]

No, no, no, no

Written by Gene Simmons, Bruce Kulick and Eric Carr

  1. One of the better tunes from Crazy Nights or should I say more rocking tunes from that album.
    I always liked it when they would let Carr loose and let him lead the charge with his drums….

        1. They do a group celebration following each of their home wins – although I was disappointed to see them beat pittsburgh recently, the blow was softened somewhat by their clever ‘duck hunt’ celebration!
