This is nothing new; it’s been around for a year and a half or so. I don’t know if Rob has posted it before, but I stumbled upon it a few nights ago. I figured with the latest string of Van Halen news, this wouldn’t hurt. The mash-up was done by “Mighty Mike”, who has done various good mash-ups.
I used to like John Lennon’s classic song, Imagine. After awhile, when you grow a bit older and learn that this is just some kind of hippie pipe dream, the song tends to lose any real felling that it might have once had. Now, take the lyrics out and add David Lee Roth’s vocals from Jump and you have one killer mash-up. Then you start listening to the song and think that it could be a pro-suicide song to follow up songs like R.E.M.’s “Everybody Hurts”, Collective Soul’d “The World I Know”, or even Third Eye Blind’s “Jumper.” Whatever way you look at it, it’s good for a listen or even a snicker or two.
