    Default I'll Wait Vs. Jump

    Okay, I'm sure some of you have heard me go off about I'll Wait on this board. I absolutely LOVE that song. The keyboard beginning, Alex's drumming and the solo.... oh, yeah. This song is solely responsible for getting me into Van Halen. I've probably heard it at least once a day since the age of 5 when 1984 came out.
    Just to compare the two, who likes what? Even though Jump is a huge hit for VH, I think it is over rated. Definately overplayed in the Philadelphia radio market. What do you think?

    Two awesome 5 star songs
    I'm more partial to Jump because #1. The lyrics are the very spirit of early Van Halen...that "Just go for it" attitude. And #2. Even though alot of fans dis it because it was a commercial hit, Jump has some Eddie's best keyboard playing on it. The solo STILL freaks me out to this day.

    Ditto that.
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    Jump. You know what's really cool, the little run he does during the bridge on the guitar. Always sounds so cool with the keys.

    Jump. I'll Wait might be my least favorite Van Halen song of all-time.
    If it's BROWN, flush it DOWN.

    I like "I'll Wait" far better than "Jump".

    Jump is just to "Poppy" for me.....even though I agree, the guitar solo is very nice.....

    I like both, but Jump's guitar solo beats I'll Wait.

    I'll second that opinion.
    Jump was more or less a good lead in song for Hot For Teacher.

    might as well jump
    DAVE vs SAMMY

    People need to let this go.....it is like comparing an ex wife to your current wife...you can say how things would have be different if she were still here but she left you, so you moved on with your life.....


    Same with Van Halen...would they have liked to have Roth stay, yes...but he decided to leave so they moved on.......

    and the rest is history….. well until 1996……..lol

    I'll Wait... Truthfully I barely even play Jump anymore. Only time I
    do is to hear the solo anyway.
