New York Groove (2:58)

Cover of Ace Frehley

From Ace Frehley and 5 other releases

A song written by Russ Ballard and performed by Ace Frehley on his self titled record (officially released as a Kiss album) in 1978 (originally recorded by Hello in 1975, and a top ten hit in the United Kingdom and Germany in that version).

Frehley, like the other then-current members of Kiss, recorded and released a solo album. Released as a single, it made it to #13 on the American Billboard Hot 100 that year, by far the highest charting single from any of the Kiss members’ solo albums. “New York Groove” became a staple of his live shows during the 1980s and again during the Reunion Tour when he rejoined Kiss in 1996.

A live version of the song can be found on the Japanese version of the 1996 album You Wanted the Best, You Got the Best!! (and the U.S. vinyl version) recorded in Sydney, Australia in 1980 which would also make it one of the few live recordings released by the group to feature long time drummer Eric Carr.

This song is often played after the New York Giants score at home, and is also the intro song for the 2008 NCAA Champions St. Norbert Green Knights Hockey team.

Hello’s version of “New York Groove” can be heard on the “Liberty Rock” station in the video game Grand Theft Auto IV.

The song was sampled in Brooks Buford’s song of the same title.

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
