American rock band from Massachussetts formed in 1967 who used to play R&B influenced blues rock and then moved on to a new wave sound.
The J. Gelis Band
Today’s song is their most popular single and one of the biggest hits back in the 80’s (!)
Is interesting to think about the 80’s generation that listen this song, picture them with their black-leather jackets, their converse and well
I found out that typing “centerfold” in google just like that can be highly explicit which gave me a clear idea of the impression that the singer is trying to express, though I recommend you not to do it as much as the lyrics of this song regret to “stain the memory”…
Better to stick to the music or enjoy the official music video where we see this great band playing on a american school. The lead singer trying to keep the rhythm with his clumpy moves and awesome shoes while walking between girls with little clothing.
An innocent love at school days that later on turns into passionate love.
Damn, it makes me wonder about the vulnerability of memories and the inescapable reality of changes.
What is it going to be of my classmates in the future? Are we going to be still in touch? How much different is going to be my life when I’m older?
…And the up grade lyrics (english/spanish) :
Does she walk? Does she talk?
Does she come complete?
My homeroom angel
Always pulled me from my seat
She was pure like snowflakes
No one could ever stain
The memory of my angel
Could never cause me pain
Years go by I’m lookin’ through a girly magazine
And there’s my homeroom angel on the pages in-between
My blood runs cold
My memory has just been sold
My angel is the centerfold…
Slipped me notes under the desk
While I was thinkin’ about her dress
I was shy I turned away
Before she caught my eye
I was shakin’ in my shoes
Whenever she flashed those baby-blues
Something had a hold on me
When angel passed close by
Those soft and fuzzy sweaters
Too magical to touch
Too see her in that negligee
Is really just too much
It’s okay I understand
This ain’t no never-never land
I hope that when this issue’s gone
I’ll see you when your clothes are on
Take you car, Yes we will
We’ll take your car and drive it
We’ll take it to a motel room
And take ’em off in private
A part of me has just been ripped
The pages from my mind are stripped
Oh no, I can’t deny it
Oh yeah, I guess I gotta buy it!
