Today is Peter Wolf's 71st birthday. In his honor here are what I consider the top songs from the J. Geils band.
1. (Ain't Nothin' But a) Houseparty
2. Must Have Got Lost (best song into ever!)
3. Hard Drivin' Man
4. Detroit Breakdown
5. (tie) Whammer Jammer (tie) Give It To Me
Of course you have to have the live versions of these songs because J. Geils was one of those bands that were just so much better live than in the studio. And if you think Centerfold or Freeze Frame should be on the list - I say that you really don't know the J. Geils Band. It also goes without saying that the J. Geils band was the best band ever out of Worcester.
As an aside - when J. Geils was playing at the Centrum on New Year's Eve - there was no better place to be on the planet.
