J_Geils_Band_Fright_Night_45_01I know it’s not Halloween or October for that matter, but I couldn’t resist choosing a song that some may find corny for Soundtrack Saturday. If you’re a fan of horror movies and horror films of the great decadent decade known as the 80’s then you are probably a fan of the classic film Fright Night which starred Chris Sarandon, William Ragsdale, Amanda Bearse, Roddy McDowall, and Stephen Geoffreys in this film of vampires and teenagers (to read the review, checkout the 31 Days Of Halloween post here) 80’s style. The film was released in 1985 and it boasted a soundtrack that could be the soundtrack to any Halloween party as well as it featured songs from artists like White Sister, April Wine, Devo, Sparks, Ian Hunter, Autograph, and today’s featured artist in Boston’s legendary The J. Geils Band. Synthesizers are in full effect on this track as Seth Justman does his best on vocals as Peter Wolf was not present in the band at this time and the song has a real catchy chorus that gets stuck in your head. It was still a weird part of the decade as bands were experimenting more and more with synths at the time like Van Halen had the year before with 1984. I would definitely check out the film for all the greatness of the 80’s as well as all the other songs you’ll hear during the film. So, let’sĀ give this song a listen below:
