Will Collier informs us that Van Halen’s “Jump” was the #1 song in the country twenty years ago this week. He even provides a link to a clip of the song, which I’ll refrain from duplicating since it’s on his (or actually, Stephen’s) bandwidth.
I was exactly two months shy of high school graduation at the time. And, indeed, that song is substantially older now than many of the “oldies” they played on the radio were then.
Update: Actually, I mistook the permalink URL for the Real Audio URL. By the way, this was one of the worst songs on that album.
