RIP J. Geils – Now An Angel In The Musical Centerfold

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

John Geils, the guitarist and leader of the J. Geils Band has passed away so we wanted to honor this musical legend with some of our favorite J. Geils Band songs…

These songs are so nostalgic for me, taking me back to a time in and place in my life where things were very different. The J. Geils band’s songs will resonate forever in my mind. They got me through some dark times and some good times but always got me through.

Thank you for the memories…

Centerfold

Does she walk? Does she talk?
Does she come complete?
My homeroom homeroom angel
Always pulled me from my seat
She was pure like snowflakes
No one could ever stain
The memory of my angel
Could never cause me pain
Years go by I’m lookin’ through a girly magazine
And there’s my homeroom angel on the pages in-between
My blood runs cold
My memory has just been sold
My angel is the centerfold
Angel is the centerfold
My blood runs cold
My memory has just been sold
My angel is the centerfold
Angel is the centerfold
Slipped me notes under the desk
While I was thinkin’ about her dress
I was shy I turned away
Before she caught my eye
I was shakin’ in my shoes
Whenever she flashed those baby-blues
Something had a hold on me
When angel passed close by
Those soft and fuzzy sweaters
Too magical to touch
Too see her in that negligee
Is really just too much
My blood runs cold
My memory has just been sold
My angel is the centerfold
Angel is the centerfold
It’s okay I understand
This ain’t no never-never land
I hope that when this issue’s gone
I’ll see you when your clothes are on
Take you car, Yes we will
We’ll take your car and drive it
We’ll take it to a motel room
And take ’em off in private
A part of me has just been ripped
The pages from my mind are stripped
Oh no, I can’t deny it
Oh yea, I guess I gotta buy it!
My blood runs cold
My memory has just been sold
My angel is the centerfold
Angel is the centerfold

Freeze-frame

I could see it was a rough-cut Tuesday
Slow-motion weekdays stare me down
Her lipstick reflex got me wound
There were no defects to be found
Snapshot image froze without a sound

Thursday mornin’ was a hot flash-factor
Her face still focused in my mind
Test-strip proof-sheet love is hard to find
Friday night, we’ll dance the spotlight grind
Stop-time heart for me if she’s not mine

Freeze-frame! (Freeze-frame!) [x3]
Freeze-frame! Now Freeze!

Now I’m lookin’ at a flashback Sunday
Zoom lens feelings just won’t disappear
Close-up darkroom sweet-talk in my ear
Her hot-spot love for me is strong
This freeze-frame moment can’t be wrong

Freeze-frame! (Freeze-frame!) [x3]
Freeze-frame! Now Freeze!

Freeze-frame! (Freeze-frame!) [x3]
Freeze-frame! Now Freeze!

Freeze-frame, freeze-frame, freeze-frame
Freeze-frame, start to freeze, freeze, freeze

Start to freeze, freeze
Freeze-frame, freeze-frame, freeze-frame

Love Stinks

You love her
But she loves him
And he loves somebody else
You just can’t win

And so it goes
Till the day you die
This thing they call love
It’s gonna make you cry

I’ve had the blues
The reds and the pinks
One thing for sure

Love stinks yeah yeah
(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah

Love stinks yeah yeah
(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah

Two by two and side by side
Love’s gonna find you yes it is
You just can’t hide
You’ll hear it call

Your heart will fall
Then love will fly
It’s gonna soar
I don’t care for any casanova thing

All I can say is
Love stinks

Love stinks yeah yeah
(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah

Love stinks yeah yeah
(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah

I’ve been through diamonds
I’ve been through minks
I’ve been through it all
Love stinks

Love stinks yeah yeah
(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah

Love stinks yeah yeah
(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah

Must Of Got Lost

Hold on this song has a little introduction to it
It’s ain’t supposed to be sad though you might feel it that way
It’s a song about desperation,
Every now and then we do get desperate

This is a song about L-O-V-E,
And if you abuse it you’re gonna lose it
And if you lose it you’re gonna ‘buse and
If you ‘buse it you ain’t gonna be able to choose it
‘Cause you ain’t gonna have it further on down the line
Things ain’t gonna be so fine
You’re gonna to be sitting there on your little machine
Trying to look and keep it clean and
You’re going to be home playing bingo all night all alone
And that’s why your sitting there by the telephone
And you know that she ain’t going to call you!

So you put on the TV and you’re watching Johnny Carson
Segwaying right into the Tomorrow show
But that don’t got the go so you turn it off ya turn on the radio,
The radio don’t seem to get the click so you say
“Hey Man, I can’t lickety split”
You start to open up a little book
And there’s something there you got to overlook
And you say “BABY, you know there’s somethin on my mind!
“You say “Baby there’s somethin on my mind –
I know that you’re home and I know you ain’t all alone! ”

So you start walking over to her house
And you get over to her house
And you walk over to her door and
You start poundin on her door and you say
“Open up the door bitch!?
This is wooba gooba with the green teeth, let me in!!”

Well, she opens up the door
And then you just kinda walk up to her and say
“Baby”, (say Baby!) you look up way up at her green mascara
And you say “Oh my darling,
You know her and me was at the party as friends –
Do not believe what they say
That’s only gossip that they tellin ya –
A wise crack of lies!”
You say Darling!!!

Take your big curls and squeeze them down Ratumba –
What’s the name of the chick with the long hair?
(Rapunzel!) Hey Rapunzel!
Heh heh… Hey Reputa the beautah! Reputa the Beautah!
Hey Reputa the Beautah flip me down your hair
And let me climb up to the ladder of your love!!
Because this is the wooba gooba sayin to ya
“Love comes once and when it comes
You better grab it fast ’cause sometimes the love
You grab ain’t gonn’ last and
I believe I musta,
You know I think I musta,
You know baby I think I musta,
You know I think I musta,
I musta got lost!!!!!!!

1?2?.3?

Never thought about tomorrow
Seemed like a long time to come
How could I be so blind, baby
Not to see you were the one

I let ya slip on from me baby
I let ya walk on by,
Shoulda loved, you told me
I refused to love, I let it die

Musta got lost, musta got lost, musta got lost
Somewhere down the line
Musta got lost, musta got lost
Give away the day you were mine

Don’t know why I let you leave me
Honey I don?t know
See its hard to see lovin’ comin baby
But I have a way to see it go

Musta got lost, musta got lost, musta got lost
Somewhere down the line
Musta got lost, I got lost
Give away the day you were mine

Love can be a sweet thing
Girl I just don’t understand
Made a game outta lovin’ you
Now I hold a losin’ hand

Musta got lost, musta got lost, musta got lost
Somewhere down the line
Musta got lost, I got lost girl
Give away the day you were mine

I just don’t understand it
I just don’t understand it
I just don’t understand it

And I musta got lost, musta got lost, musta got lost
Somewhere down the line, hey
Musta got lost, baby, I got lost girl
Give away the day you were mine

Musta got lost, I got lost, musta got lost
Somewhere down the line
Musta got lost, I got lost girl
Give away the day you were mine

C?mon
Oh, I got lost, double-crossed
Your lovin, give it to me all night long

I said your love got me higher,
Than I ever been lifted before

I said your love got me higher,
Than I ever been lifted before??

Somewhere???????

Southside Shuffle

I should have known you’d bid me farewell
There’s a lesson to be learned from this and I learned it very well
Now I know you’re not the only starfish in the sea
If I never hear your name again, it’s all the same to me

And I think it’s gonna be all right
Yeah, the worst is over now
The mornin’ sun is shinin’ like a red rubber ball

You never care for secrets I confide
For you I’m just an ornament, somethin’ for your pride
Always runnin’, never carin’, that’s the life you live
Stolen minutes of your time were all ya had to give

And I think it’s gonna be all right
Yeah, the worst is over now
The mornin’ sun is shinin’ like a red rubber ball

The story’s in the past with nothin’ to recall
I’ve got my life to live and I don’t need you at all
The roller-coaster ride we took is nearly at an end
I bought my ticket with my tears, that’s all I’m gonna spend

And I think it’s gonna be all right
Yeah, the worst is over now
The mornin’ sun is shinin’ like a red rubber ball

Oh, oh, oh
I think it’s gonna be all right
Yeah, the worst is over now
The mornin’ sun is shinin’ like a red rubber ball

Angel In Blue

We met in a bar
Out on Chesapeake Bay
With her white patent boots
And her blouse red lame

A table top dancer
She would smile on cue
Oh those lips of an angel
Angel in blue

She’d been dancin for ages
Through cities of bars
She was kickin’ the habit
Of scoring in cars

She’d been drained of her spirit
All caged up in this zoo
A wild cat angel
Angel in blue

And as she stared out into nowhere
I thought yes I thought she might break down and cry
Oh when I whispered I thought I could love her

She just said, “Baby don’t even bother to try”
And I watched as she spoke
Her words chilled my bones
All her friends did her favors

That were really just loans
And she never had dreams
So they never came true
Oh the palest of angels
Angel in blue

And the bees they had stung her
The birds they had flown
There were guys she could number
But none had she known

And she never had dreams
So they never came true
Oh my fade away angel

Angel in blue
Angel in blue
Angel in blue
Angel in blue

One Last Kiss

Just one last kiss
Before I walk out the door
I’m gonna hold you tighter
Than I ever did before
And I, I never promised you
The things you promised me
And I, I can’t justify
The way it’s gotta be
And the good times are the best times
The bad times fade away
The good times are forever
But now, baby, the last time is today
Just one more night
There’s no time for anymore
I’m gonna tell you something
That you’ve never heard before
But I, I can’t find the words
To ease your lovers pain
And I, I know the feeling’s gone
I can feel it in my veins
And the good times are the best times
The bad times fade away
The good times are forever
But now, baby, the last time is today
One last kiss
And the good times are the best times
The bad times fade away
The good times are forever
But now, baby, the last time is today
One last kiss

Where Did Our Love Go

Baby, baby, baby don’t leave me.
Ooh, please don’t leave me all by myself.
I’ve got this burning, burning, yearning feelin’ inside me.
Ooh, deep inside me and it hurts so bad.
You came into my heart (baby, baby) so tenderly,
With a burning love (baby, baby)
That stings like a bee (baby, baby).
Now that I surrender (baby, baby) so helplessly,
You now want to leave (baby, baby).
Ooh, you wanna leave me (baby, baby).
Ooh (baby, baby).
Baby, baby, where did our love go?
Ooh, don’t you want me?
Don’t you want me no more (baby, baby)?
Ooh, baby.
Baby, baby, where did our love go?
And all your promises of a love forevermore!
I’ve got this burning, burning, yearning feelin’ inside me.
Ooh, deep inside me, and it hurts so bad.
Before you won my heart (baby, baby)
You were a perfect guy.
But now that you got me,
You wanna leave me behind (baby, baby).
Ooh, baby.
Baby, baby, baby don’t leave me.
Ooh, please don’t leave me all by myself (baby, baby).
Ooh.
