"Just Can't Wait"

"Centerfold" is a single released by The J. Geils Band from their album Freeze Frame. The song is about a man who is shocked to discover that his high school crush appeared in a centerfold spread for an unspecified men's magazine.[1] The song's narrator is torn between conflicting feelings: his disappointment due to her loss of innocence, and his lust until the end of the song.[1]

It was released in autumn 1981, and eventually went to Number 1 on the US Billboard Hot 100 in February 1982, and stayed there for six weeks. It was the first single released from the album Freeze Frame and was an early staple on MTV. It also peaked at Number 1 in Australia and Canada.

In February 1982, after the song hit No. 1 in the US, "Centerfold" peaked at No. 3 in the UK Top 40, earning The J. Geils Band their only major hit single in the UK, although follow-up "Freeze-Frame" was a minor hit. The song is one of the on-disc songs on the 2010 music video game Rock Band 3.

In 2018, the song was ranked at No. 66 on Billboard's All Time Top Songs.[2]
