This is dedicated to everyone who might not be looking forward to Valentine's Day. Cause love does sometimes stink!

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

Loved the cover Adam Sandler did of it in the wedding singer. Gotta love the J Geils band.

Dammit, ISIS, I was going to post these lyrics on Valentines' Day.

My fave *80s* J. Geils Band is easily "Flamethrower", but of course.

Sincerely,

John Kilduff

you haven't lived until you see the "flamethrower" scene in the parisian nightsuit episode of "freaks and geeks." fabulous! and that whole series is definitely a must for 80s lovers.

To bring it back to the REAL 80s (as opposed to the late-90s interpretation of said decade in "Freaks And Geeks"), here are the "Flamethrower" lyrics:
----------
All day long she holds it back
Back with all her might
She carries a burnin' torch inside
She holds it firm and tight

She punches out the clock
While it keeps punchin' out her life
She's a flamethrower, red-hot glower
Flamethrower at night

The things she wears at work
They hang off her kinda loose
Her blouse don't fit, the pants ain't right
She ain't no front page news

But when her work is done
And the daytime turns to night
The headlines flash in neon
That the girl has taken flight

Chairman of the board
Won't look her in the eye
The fire of her vision
His money just can't buy

Silently she waits
Silently she contemplates
She can make 'em tremble
You know the reason why

She's a flame - flamethrower
She's a flamethrower at night
She's a flame - a red-hot glower
She's a flamethrower at night

You might think you're burnin'
All your candles at both ends
Maybe you should go to church
To make up some amends

But if you think you're fireproof
So cool and much too much
Don't dare go near my baby
'Cause she'll melt you with her touch

I forget the darkness
I forget the pain
When she's movin' through my heart
And when she's pumpin' through my veins

She's the part inside me
I never can control
And she's the only reason
I know I've got a soul

She's a flame - flamethrower
She's a flamethrower at night
She's a flame - a red-hot glower
She's a flamethrower at night
------------

It just has that charge in the lyrics that says "Step aside. I'm in charge...This is my machine!".

The best part is that you tweak the lyrics a little and make it about a guy if you want.

Sincerely,

John Kilduff

I thought maybe the lyrics would jog my memory and I would have heard it, but I don't recognize it at all.

I have memories of Flamethrower being played at an extremely high volume thru boom box speakers on the last day of school freshman year 1982. Ah the memories!

i was big on centerfold back when freeze frame came out. that song got SICK quantities of air play. i think i only happened across flamethrower later on.

yeah, i guess Fs&Gs is kinda weirdly grungy. one of the fun things about it is picking out the anachronisms/inaccuracies (like in the atari episode they used the 2600 game boxes with the fancy cover art when it was a VCS when it first came out and had much plainer boxes; and there's no way you can play a whole game of D&D in one night)... still think it was a great show though.

OMG- my husband and I just about peed ourselves when he wore that "Parisian Nightsuit" to school! I think I'm going to buy the whole dvd set for my hubby's birhtday (always a good excuse to buy a dvd- I loved that show- Hey that's another good show that was cancelled!)
ISIS, if you hear Flamethrower on the radio, I'm sure you will remember it- It got heavy airplay in the 80's.
