Musician and remix artist Andy Rehfeldt has reshared his minor key arrangement of Van Halen’s ‘Jump,’ three years after it was blocked by YouTube over a copyright claim.
Rehfeldt recorded all the parts himself, paying careful attention to replicate the sound and mix of the Van Halen original, while carefully tuning David Lee Roth’s vocals to match the strange, and somewhat unsettling, arrangement.
The result is baffling, epic, bizzaro-world take on one of Van Halen’s most beloved Roth-era hits, set to the original music video.
Rehfeldt adds a few surprises to make the song his own, which includes an almost jazz-style reproduction to Eddie Van Halen’s guitar solo, which seems a bit out of pocket considering the heavy ‘80s-synth.
As one said on YouTube, ‘now it’s a Ozzy Osbourne song’.
