Any Way You Want It

Dave Clark

Originally recorded by the Dave Clark Five. This song was included instead of the originally considered cover of Elvis Presley's "Jailhouse Rock," which was abandoned due to his death on August 16, 1977 (and the fact that it had never been definitively chosen - it was simply an option). It was also a very quick and easy song primarily being recorded by Paul Stanley, and doesn't feature a guitar solo which helps confirm that this was not one of the tracks Bob Kulick appeared on. Additionally, Bob has never claimed to have played on this song.

Dave's original version was released in September 1964 and managed to reach #14 on the Billboard singles charts. Paul retained the original arrangement completely, though there would be a single word change in the song's primary verse: "Any way you want it, you can always hear me say, hey, hey, hey" would be changed to "Any way you want it, you will always hear me say, hey, hey, hey." One final repetition of "that's the way it will be" would be removed from the end of the song and Paul's version was 4 seconds longer than the original's 2:29 length.
