B-Sides: Welcome to Fright Night

By now you’ve probably seen the Kid Cudi music video for the Fright Night 3D remake - a future B-Sides in the making, no doubt. But how does it compare to the J. Geils Band’s theme song from the original Fright Night?

J. Geils Band made quite a splash in the early Eighties with hits like “Centerfold” and “Love Stinks” and “Freeze Frame”. Lead singer Peter Wolf left the band in 1983 to pursue a rather unsuccessful solo career. Seth Justman took over the vocals for the band’s only album before breaking up in 1985.

The final song from J. Geils Band before fading into pop music oblivion would be the incredibly Eighties sounding title track from Tom Holland's little 1985 vampire flick titled Fright Night...

While the debate rages over the merits or lack thereof of the new Fright Night in 3D, here’s the last hurrah of J. Geils Band performing “Fright Night” from the now classic motion picture of the same name.

Great song! Brad Fiedel's score added tremendously to Fright Night's classic status as well! I wish Fiedel was still in the biz......

J. Geils Band > Kid Cudi

Had the misfortune to listen to Cudi's FN3D song and I have to say I wish I'd never heard of Kid Cudi.

You know, I really do like Kid Cudi, but it's not one of his better songs. It's sort of boring. The video is alright.

I hate to say it, but Kanye's video for "Monster" was WAY better as far as horror themed music videos.
