J Geils Band Fright Night 1985 White Label Japanese Promo
Fright Night is a composition written by Joe Lamont and performed by the J. Geils Band for the movie Fright Night. This was the final single issued by The J. Geils Band, who are best known for their '80s hits "Centerfold" and "Love Stinks".

Use in the FilmEdit

The song begins playing over the final image and continues through the closing credits of the original film.

Single Edit

Fright Night was issued as a single backed with "Boppin' Tonight" by the Fabulous Fontaines. The releases are predominantly the same around the world, with the movie's poster art adorning the front cover - the glaring exception is a white-label promo from Japan, which has a small photo of Amanda Bearse on the front accompanied by Japanese text. An additional Japanese CBS/Sony 12" promotional version exists which was issued in a plain-white cover and boasts a "Long Version" and "Single Version" of the title song.[1] In the Netherlands, they issued a 12" maxi-single which includes the album versions of the songs cut in a less compressed format.

Music VideosEdit

In 1985, the J. Geils Band produced a promotional music video for the title song which utilized many clips from the film and received minor airplay on MTV - the band split up soon after it was filmed. The best quality version of this clip in circulation appears on the DVD collection "Spooky Videos, Volume 2,"[2] which was released by Promo Only, a company that caters exclusively to professional D.J.'s and V.J.'s. A lower-quality copy (with an obtrusive time code on the screen) and rare behind-the-scenes featurette appear on the original EPK (Electronic Press Kit) which was included on the 30th anniversary edition blu-ray.

Fright! Fright! Fright! Fright!
Night! Night! Night! Night!
Fright! Fright! Fright! Fright!
Night! Night! Whooo!

People say I'm crazy and I make no sense
But they don't understand the man's got influence
He's a gigolo, a liar, a man of many faces
So don't be fooled by what you think you see
He's gonna make his move on you and me

Fright night!
Fright Night!
Who's it gonna be tonight?
Lock your doors and windows tight
And soon we'll all believe I'm right
We're all in for a most frightening night!

Intuition tells me that it's time to go
But my sense of danger tells me no
I've got to find a weakness to put an end to this
Can't you see he's tearin' us apart?
I've got to drive a stake right through his heart!

Fright night!
Fright Night!
Who's it gonna be tonight?
Lock your doors and windows tight
And soon we'll all believe I'm right
We're all in for a most frightening night!

Fright night!
Bop-a-did-did, bop-chu-bop-a-did-did
Doom bop-a-did-did, bop-chu-bop-a-did-did
Fright night!
Bop-a-did-did, bop-chu-bop-a-did-did
Dum bop-a-did-did, bop-cha-bop-a-did-did
Fright night!
Bop-a-did-did, bop-shu-bop-a-did-did
Dum bop-a-did-did, bop-shu-bop-a-did-did

I look into the mirror, it's as black as night
I see it fall to pieces as my heart ignites
Just waiting for the moment for that connecting thrill
Don't make a move, we've got to keep real still
We're waiting here and we're dressed up to kill
Watch out!

Fright night!
(Fright Night!)
Who's it gonna be tonight?
Lock your doors and windows tight
And soon we'll all believe I'm right
We're all in for a most frightening night!

Fright Night!
Who's it gonna be tonight?
Lock your doors and windows tight
And soon we'll all believe I'm right
We're all in for a most frightening night!

Fright Night!
Fright Night!
Who's it gonna be tonight?
Lock your doors and windows tight
And soon we'll all believe I'm right
We're all in for a most frightening night!
