The Tape Deck: Are You Ready To Jump?

Monday, February 7, 2011

Songs about jumping, because songs about jumping are just fun. Jumping, in general, is fun. I do it all the time. It's great exercise and it's a real attitude booster, especially if you jump up and down on your bed/sofa/trampoline/whatever and scream: "Wheee!". Releases that tension greatly, but just don't go hurting yourself on my advice. Instead, listen to this energetic deck of 8 songs that talk about jumping for love, jumping into lives, and even one song is about a dog jumping. Get elevated.

1. Jump - Madonna (2005)

2. Jump - Kriss Kross (1992)

3. Jump (For My Love) - The Pointer Sisters (1984)

4. Jump Jump - Debbie Harry (1981)

5. Jump - Van Halen (1984)

6. Jump Into My Life - Stacy Lattisaw (1986)

7. Jump Up In The Air (And Stay There) - Erykah Badu (ft. Lil Wayne and Bilal) (2010)

8. Jumpin, Jumpin - Destiny's Child (1999)


  1. It's pretty safe to say there was an overwhelming amount of songs about "Jumping" in the 80s.

  2. Oh, yes! I believe in the 80's people didn't try to take themselves too seriously all the time...LOL
