67.17. You're My Reason For Living (Gene Simmons, 2003)
(As KARRF #49.17 and #36.28) An unused track dating from the "Revenge" era, this song would finally be released in demo format as part of Gene's audio CD lunch-box for "Sex Money KISS" in 2003. According to Jesse Damon, the song demo was "recorded sometime between 1991-93. Around 10 years ago. I absolutely thought it was a smash hit, not our demo, I mean the song itself, the chorus 'You're My Reason For Livin,' say's it all" (JG). Whatever the case the song is stylistically similar to material Gene would later record, notably "Journey Of 1,000 Years" for the "Psycho Circus" album and can be seen as being a latter-day "Great Expectations." Running to 4:23 this very atmospheric piece is keyboard laden before becoming acoustic with Silent Rage serving as Gene's backing band. While the piece does become a full blown electric piece it includes some great lyric lines: "Can't feel the pain / And that's a start / But the first time I saw your face / Was the last time I saw my heart."

67.18. Everybody Knows (Gene Simmons, 2003)
Previously noted as 36.29. this track, along with 67.17, was originally released on a bonus CD in the lunch box version of the audio book for Gene's book "Sex Money KISS." Both of these songs would be included on the Japanese version of Gene's 2004 solo album as bonus tracks. This probably dates to the same period as 67.17.
