1986 - 1988 (?) ; Paul Stanley demo's with Paul Sabu
After Paul Sabu had released his 1985 "SABU - Heartbreak" album, he started writing and demoing new songs. One of these songs is "Screaming Until You Like It", which track made it into a few movies, and in one (1986's "Trick Or Treat") Gene Simmons played the role of a DJ, and actually spins the song. 
Around that time Paul Stanley came into Arista's office one day, looking for people to write with.
He heard "Screaming Until You Like It" and decided he'd like to write with Paul Sabu.
According to Paul Sabu, they wrote several songs and started even more... 
At the end none of the songs were used by Paul Stanley, Kiss or Paul Sabu himself.
A cassette of these demo recordings still exists.

In 1987 W.A.S.P. had their version of "Scream Until You Like It" included on the soundtrack of the movie Ghoulies 2, while Paul Sabu's own version of the song ended on ONLY CHILD's  1988 debut album.

In 1987 Paul Sabu produced (and co-wrote 3 songs) SILENT RAGE's debut album "Shattered Hearts". The release took Gene Simmons attention, and in 1989 SILENT RAGE's second album "Don't Touch Me There", produced by Paul Sabu and Gene Simmons, was released on Simmons Records.

The Folgers coffee company made a commercial in 2000 featuring KISS frontman Paul Stanley, but reportedly it was never aired.

2004 - 2006 ; Paul Stanley - Live To Win (unreleased tracks)
Andreas Carlsson (ASCAP song writer of the year 2001) is better known for his "Boy" band song-writing contributions. However, his pop/rock sensitivities have also resulted in his working with the likes of Def Leppard. Some known Carlsson/Stanley collaborations include "Impossible" (Warner-Chappell #856444500; ASCAP), "Ready To Rock Your World" (Warner-Chappell #859488800), and "Bloodtype R" (Warner-Chappell #855881400; ASCAP). "Bloodtype R" was recorded by the German band Silbermond as "Mach's Dir Selbst" on their 2004 self-titled album. You can hear a sample from the song at

A Dutch girl pop band, Bad Candy recorded the English language original version on their self-titled album released in April 2006: “Bloodtype R is for rebel / You’re in bed with the devil / I throw my fist in the air / What they tell me I don’t care / Call it all stupidity / Well that’s just me.” According to the band’s PR, the song was “Written by the absolute world top of songwriters Paul Stanley and Andres Carlsson. This edgy song represents the rebellious nature of the four girls”.
It's not clear whether the other two songs have been used by other artists or were geared towards any particular project, Paul's or some other artists...
