"New York Groove" as written by and Russell Glyn Ballard....
Many years since I was here,
On the street I was passin' my time away
To the left and to the right,
Buildings towering to the sky
It's outta sight in the dead of night

Here I am, and in this city, with a fistful of dollars
And baby, you'd better believe

I'm back, back in the New York groove
I'm back, back in the New York groove
I'm back, back in the New York groove
Back in the New York groove, in the New York groove

In the back of my Cadillac
A wicked lady, sittin' by my side, sayin' 'Where are we?'
Stop at Third and Forty-three, exit to the night
It's gonna be ecstacy, this place was meant for me

Feels so good tonight, who cares about tomorrow
So baby, you'd better believe

I'm back, back in the New York groove
I'm back, back in the New York groove
I'm back, back in the New York groove
Back in the New York groove, in the New York groove

I'm back, back in the New York groove
I'm back, back in the New York groove
I'm back, back in the New York groove
I'm back, back in the New York groove
I'm back, back in the New York groove
I'm back, back in the New York groove
I'm back, back in the New York groove
I'm back, back in the New York groove
I'm back, back in the New York groove
I'm back, back in the New York groove

    General CommentAce Frehley wrote and performed this song. This song appeared on his 1978 Solo album. Each member relesed their solo album on September 18, 1978. They were made because Ace wanted to leave KISS to pursue a solo career, and he was unhappy. so as a means of stopping his departure, each member of KISS made a solo album. This single 'New York Groove' Got the best reviews and was the most popular song from any of the Solo albums. Ace's had the best results

    General CommentNo, Ace covered this song he never wrote it. Russ Ballard from Hello wrote it and was released in 1975 in London, England. Goto allmusic.com and search for "Hello" and go see for yourself.

    General CommentYes, this song is a cover, but it is an improved version and it is the most famous version. Ace Frehley kicks ass!

    General CommentI was in a Manhattan night club some years back. There were four USMC LCPs who were on liberty. They did a line dance to this song corps style. It may sound corny, but you had to see it. They brought the house down that night as they did at Iwo Jima. As one can conclude, they had free soda pops the rest of the night.
