38.06. Jungle
Written by Paul Stanley, Bruce Kulick, and Curt Cuomo. Running 6:49 "Jungle" is one of the longest studio recordings in the KISS catalog. Released in September 1997 as the first radio single in support of "Carnival Of Souls," the song was a top-10 rock radio hit peaking at #8 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Top-40 in November. As a result, the song became KISS' biggest hit on that chart, beating the previous best of "Heaven's On Fire" which reached #11 in 1984. The song also won the "Metal Edge Reader's Choice Song of The Year" award for 1997. The song shares a rhythm vibe similar to Deep Purple's "You Fool No One."
