What do you think of when you hear the word jump?
Hmmm…the first thing that popped into my head was the song Jumper from Third Eye Blind. When that song was popular, we lived in Seattle, and they used it for a Public Service Announcement. Made me insane!! I do love me some Third Eye Blind though.
Next, my mind jumped to Jump from Van Halen. I was in awe of David Lee Roth as a child. Of course, I more dug his fashion sense than anything else. This version has Sammy, but I can deal with it.
And then I thought about Jump Jump fro Kriss Kross. Remember them? When they wore their clothes backwards? And they were like 11 year old rappers?
What about Jump Around from House of Pain? In middle school, we used to run laps to this song. Apparently it was supposed to get us fired up or something? I don’t know. Who lets 11-13 year olds listen to songs about having rap battles and veiled violence at school anyway? I’m also sure that the other teachers appreciated having amped-up pre-teens the rest of the day.
There are tons of songs that have jump in the title, but these are the 4 that immediately spring to mind for me. What about you? What do you think of when you hear the word jump?
