1 min read

Today’s song is Jump by Van Halen.

‘Jump’, by Van Halen started a five-week run at No.1 on the US singles chart. The high-energy song, which served as the lead single off their sixth studio album, 1984, went on to become their most successful hit. It later earned Van Halen their first Grammy nod. Singer David Lee Roth wrote the lyrics after seeing a television news report about a man who was threatening to commit suicide by jumping off a high building. Roth thought that one of the onlookers of such a scene would probably shout “go ahead and jump”.
