Van Halen swing!

This is so bizarre it’s good: Paul Anka sings Van Halen’s “Jump” (full length Quicktime audio file). This is taken from an album of covers, including Smells Like Teen Spirit plus tracks by Spandau Ballet, The Cure, Survivor, REM et al. Amazing.

  2. i heard this the other day while at the bookstore. i wondered who it was. all of those tunes were a little more than disturbing. actually the best one of them was the van halen tune, from what i remember.

  3. I think Paul Anka is trying to lasso in a new generation… hey, it worked for Pat Boone, didn't it? (warning, sound file)Esther Strom#
  4. Who would have thought that I am ever going to buy a Paul Anka album.
    This is really cool and it is you to blame for ;o)
