    And I don't mean 'Jump' and 'Top of the World'. I was just listening to 'The Dream Is Over' a minute ago and just thought of something. The guitar part where Sammy sings the verses sounds very much like the intro to 'Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love'. You all need to listen to it and see (hear?) for yourselves. But I still don't see any similarities between the outro to 'Jump' and the intro to 'Top of the World'. Can anyone explain all this to me?

    I think this belongs in songs/albums
    or ....opinions


    Hope I'm not stepping on the mods toes by saying so....there are too threads many here that belong elsewhere

    I'll give "The Dream Is Over" a listen for the similarities.

    And as far as the "Jump" and "Top Of The World" goes your listening to the wrong part of "Jump".

    It's the riff at the end of "Jump" that starts off TOTW. C'mon you can't hear it? It's soooo obvious!

    Red-Balled Mammoth, I hear ya! It's not exactly the same at all, but there's a definite similarity.

    And Crossing Over sounds like Love Walks In, too.

    As for the Jump/Top Of The World thing, think the end of Jump where you hear Eddie come in again with a little guitar part over the top of everything else. If you single out that part, it sounds kinda like the intro to Top Of The World. Try listening to them back to back...

    Top of the World is played like on the two small strings so it has that real bright sound to it.

    I think the outro to Jump is pretty much the same notes, but played on the "thicker strings" I hope this makes sense.

    And yes, I play the guitar and this is the best that I can explain it!!!!!! Now if you need explanation on a Green Day tune,....no problem!!!!!

    They do sound alike, b/c Top of the World and Jump were written at the same time by Eddie when he was writing 1984. The guitar riff--outro for Jump is the same as for TOTW

    I guess I'm just an idiot for not noticing the Jump/TOTW thingy. As for The Dream Is Over, it's kinda played in the background and I guess you could called it Eddie's rhythm part.

    I don't see the simularites to be honest. I think I'll move this to Songs/Albums.
