Karine’s newest cover proves that when you strip away the face paint, big hair, and metallic outfits from Kiss’s classic rock anthem “I Was Made For Loving You,” you can get mask-free, sentimental rock. The sensual nature within the lyrics “I was made for loving you baby, you were made for loving me” steers away from Kiss’s theatrical sex energy and instead reveals a more profound passion within these familiar lyrics.
The gentle instrumentals allow the listener to feel a genuine connection rather than a longing for a one-night stand. Karine’s emotion pours out in her voice through her genuine rasp and impressive higher register wails.
