Monday morning earworm: J. Geils Band's 'Flamethrower'



There's a lot of love still out there for The J. Geils Band and their 1981 album Freeze Frame - and justifiably so. The album was a huge success for the band thanks to some TV network called MTV, which played videos for Freeze-Frame and Centerfold on constant rotation. 

But what the song Flamethrower, which was actually the B-side to Freeze-Frame? Seth Justman, the band's keyboard player, wrote the song, which never really got the same love as other tunes on the album. Still, Flamethrower made it to No. 25 on the Billboard Soul Chart in '82. And it's plenty catchy enough to be this week's Monday Morning Earworm.
