"I Finally Found My Way" - should there have been a video?

Post by ManOf1000Faces »

Would "I Finally Found My Way" have been the perfect opportunity to make a mini movie of how KISS reunited, highly fictionalized, of course, to make it look better? Seems like they were going for a second "Beth" but didn't quite follow through on the concept.

A terrible love song between Peter and Paul. I wouldn't like the moment when they turned down the light and locked the door being captured on video.

It was a very well written song that may have gotten some traction, had they promoted it

They should’ve played it live, as well


Peter sounds really good on it and it has a beautiful melody

I know it's a cheesy song unless you listen to it on vinyl. It opens up a whole new world of alternate Kisstory.

Shouldn’t of even been a song, a Paul vanity project that shot him in the foot.

Christ the entire old band was back together and they couldn’t just grit their teeth through the hatred and make us a song

Not a fan of the song. Can't imagine they'd let Peter have the spotlight by featuring him in a music video.

A flashback to when Peter and Paul used to dance the night away? Nah. But who knows, maybe the biopic will revisit the idea and grant your wish to see this duet in action on the big screen.

Paul tried to recreate the artistic greatness of "Mainline" by shitting out a song in 10 minutes for Peter to sing to placate him. Oddly, it totally sucked. Hell naw on a music video.

Buenos Aires 99 show TV broadcast used it as a credits ending song with the show highlights. It''s the closest you can get to a music video.

Mainline is probably a rip off of some cover song they used to play. Great song and Peter saves it.

Oh holy shit, you vinyl people. That song sucks regardless of what format you hear it on. What possible difference could vinyl make? Perhaps a bit more bacon frying sound?

Why not? I always thought there should have been another video. Hell, why not 4 with each guy getting one for a track with his vocals?

Not even then.

Way too schmaltzy. Just like the shitty Nothing Can Keep Me From You. That wouldn't have been a hit on the Armageddon soundtrack either instead of the Aerosmith song.

I think you might be mixing IFFMW up with Nothing Can Keep Me From You from the DRC movie where the original 4 did a studio version remake of DRC but never used it. I have heard the remake and there is nothing wrong with this at all. At some point in the future it will appear as a bonus song on something.

The closest thing to a sex scene to be found on the entire album? I’d have thought the reunion tour would’ve inspired just a few more sparks than that.

I kinda find it funny how much Paul dislikes Peter’s solo album, but then helps write this song for Peter and is ok with it being on an album.

I can’t believe people are suggesting they should have done more with this song. Pushing RECORD in the studio was already too much! 🤮

I don’t hate many KISS songs. Even some of Gene’s 80’s filler has a charm to it. But IFFMYTY is at the very bottom of the pile for me. This one and Paul’s Nothing Can Keep Me From Copying Aerosmith are the 2 worst songs in KISStory for me. But at least Paul’s song has a good vocal so it is my second worst.

Is it opposites day today? I didn’t get the memo. :?:

It never did resonate with me. Peter sounded GREAT in it, but it felt like they were trying too hard to fit the Destroyer formula. I do have to admit though, I have often wondered if the reason they didn't scout the world for a better song, is the fear that it would become a huge hit and throw off the power balance in the band.

I don't skip it, but I agree it's by far the worst. I don't loathe it, but I don't particularly like it eitber. It's entirety forgettable and sad this was the best Paul and Ezrin could come up with.

I think that’s bad too. All opinion of course. But my question is, why did they have to do a ballad for him? Peter has done some kick ass rockers too. I would have loved a song like Baby Driver instead of a very forced and syrupy love ballad.

released within' / i pledge allegiance as singles etc to give the lp airtime.

Yes, it should have a video.
