Song of the day: Van Halen- Runnin’ With The Devil

van-halen-runnin-with-the-devil-warner-bros-3

In 1978, Van Halen got started with this song. As the very first song you would hear from Van Halen (unless you would start with side 2 from their album), it immediately introduced you to who Van Halen was. With an intro that was invented by Gene Simmons, who also recorded their demo, their career got started. With a guitar solo from Eddie Van Halen, a squeal and little tricks from the studio, they got to number 52 in the UK and 84 in the US. Enjoy

Song of the day: Van Halen- Jump

Van_Halen_-_Jump

Absolute eighties? And good music, too? Music which will be accepted today too? That’s a bit too difficult, but I think Van Halen has made a very good song which will last forever. Jump is one of the best songs I know, definitely a song which I don’t mind listening too for a few times. And that’s because it’s timeless. There is no label to it which puts it in a certain era, it could be made now as well, but that’s not the case. A good song for today:

Van Halen- Jump

Song of the day: The Pointer Sisters- Jump! (For My Love)

The-Pointer-Sisters-Break-Out-290285

Yes, this is one of the best studio albums by the Pointer Sisters! Okay, we only have one, but still…
One of the tracks on the album is Automatic, a very good song, but not the song of the day.

The song of the day is a song which is a happy song. I can’t think of a better description. Or, well:It has to do something with the Olympic games of 1984.

It’s Jump (For My Love)!

And this song was originally called Jump, the rest of the title was placed after it when the song got confused with Jump from Van Halen.
