Similarities between the KISS song I Was Made For Lovin' You (1979) and Bruce Springsteen's Outlaw Pete (2009) could have resulted in a suit, but Gene Simmons says they decided against going after The Boss because they like him.  Speaking with The Guardian, Simmons said, 'KISS have sued lots of people and won. But some people we don't sue', adding, How do we decide who to sue and who not to? We like Springsteen. We don't sue.'  Paul Stanley said some time ago that despite similarities, he attributes the similarity of the two to coincidence. His explanation at the time was '...there are a certain number of notes and they only get jumbled so many ways.'


Here are the two songs.
