J. Geils Band racked up a string of hits in the seventies and eighties, but no song defined the Boston-band more than 1982 chart-topper “Centerfold” off Freeze-Frame. Rounding out the top three are “Freeze-Frame,” which peaked at #4 on the Billboard Hot 100, and 1975 live-staple “Musta Got Lost.”

Curiously the group’s 1980 smash, and one of their most recognizable tunes, “Love Stinks” did not make the cut.

Here are J. Geils Band’s highest-charting singles:

1. “Centerfold,” #1, Feb. 6, 1982

2. “Freeze-Frame,” #4, April 10, 1982

3. “Musta Got Lost,” #12, Jan. 4, 1975

4. “I Do,” #24, Jan. 8, 1983

5. “Give It to Me,” #30, June 23, 1973

6. “Come Back,” #32, March 22, 1980

7. “One Last Kiss,” #35, Feb. 3, 1979
