Throwback Thursday – House of Pain ‘Jump Around’ (1992)
"Jump Around" by House of Pain was a huge hit in 1992. It charted on multiple Billboard charts including:
|U.S. Billboard Hot 100||3|
|U.S. Billboard Hot Rap Singles||5|
|U.S. Billboard Rhythmic Top 40||13|
|U.S. Billboard Hot Dance Music/Maxi-Singles Sales||1|
|U.S. Billboard Dance Music/Club Play Singles||17|
It was also ranked on a couple of VH1's best of lists. According to Wikipedia:
The song is still a staple in clubs and bars around the world, but it has been featured in many movies and TV shows: Mrs. Doubtfire, The Rookie, Daredevil, Rush Hour, Happy Gilmore, Kiss of Death, Detention, Black Hawk Down, Jack Reacher, Turbo, and Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, just to name a few.
I thought this song was well suited for St. Patrick's Day because the members of House of Pain are proud Irish Americans. In fact, the music video was filmed during the 1992 NYC St. Patrick's Day Parade.
