About this song


"Hard Luck Woman" is a song by the American hard rock band Kiss and the lead single from their 1976 album, Rock and Roll Over. The song was originally written by Kiss guitarist Paul Stanley as a possible track for Rod Stewart, but when Stewart showed no interest in singing it, Kiss decided to keep it for themselves.[1]

Sung by drummer Peter Criss, the band was trying to follow the success of the hit single "Beth" released earlier in the year by releasing another love song sung by Criss. The plan worked, as the single proved to be a Top 20[clarification needed] hit in the U.S.

A "live" version of "Hard Luck Woman" appears on Kiss's 1977 Alive II album; although, it was later revealed that the song was recorded in an empty warehouse with an audience overdub for a live feel.
