"Just Can't Wait" by The J. Geils Band

Song#:  0251
Date:  07/12/1980
Debut:  83
Peak:  78
Weeks:  5
Genre:  Rock

Pop Bits:  With the success of the title track single from "Love Stinks," this third single was issued from the album. Although it couldn't get very far on the chart, it helped to push the album to gold status and get it to #18 on the album chart - their highest peak position since "Bloodshot" hit #10 in 1973.

ReduxReview:   This is a pretty solid song that opens the "Love Stinks" album. It is not identifiable as that classic title tune, but definitely good and single-worthy. I'm not sure why it didn't cruise up the chart a bit further. It deserved a better fate.

ReduxRating:  6/10

Trivia:  J. Geils secondary career after music was repairing sports cars. He created his own company called KTR Motorsports and serviced vintage foreign sports cars. He also participated in races at the famous Watkins Glen track. He sold his company in 1996 but still remains active with the business.
