Classic Hit Academy, Songs with Sound Effects, Freeze-Frame - J. Geils Band

This song was quite a departure from what the blues based J Geils Band had been performing up to that point but it became a huge hit!

Until this song it was mainly the Guitar playing of bluesman J Geils that was the bands focal point but when keyboard player Seth Justman starting writing synth based pop songs for the band the world changed for the band.

The song about a teenage crush appearing in “girly” magazine starts with the sound of an old school camera shutter.

From the 1981 Freeze Frame album this was the lead single it went to US #1 for a startling six weeks!
