THE 1000 BEST SONGS IN THE WORLD EVER.
75-House of Pain-Jump Around.
1992-Number 32 single,when reissued in 1993 it reached Number 8.
Best Bit-At 0.32.For those who love coincidences or useless facts this ones for you.Did you know that the ‘B’ side of Van Halen’s 1984 American Number 1 single ‘Jump’ was a song called House of Pain(see also best songs 647.)
House of Pain were an American Hip-Hop group formed in Los Angeles in 1991 by Erik Schrody(Everlast,) Daniel O’Connor(Danny Boy,) and Leor Dimant(DJ Lethal.) The groups name is a reference to the 1896 science fiction novel by H.G.Wells called ‘The Island of Dr. Moreau.’
The songs beat was produced by Laurence Muggerud(DJ Muggs) who at the time was a member of fellow Hip-Hop group Cyprus Hill(see also best songs 963,) but they didn’t want it,so he offered it to Ice Cube who also refused it.The track was eventually accepted by the House of Pain with Everlast adding the lyrics.
At 0.25 seconds into the song you can hear a distinctive horn fanfare,this is sampled from the 1963 Bob & Earl song,’Harlem Shuffle'(see also best songs 696.)The song is also famous for a high pitched squealing sound that appears at the beginning of almost every bar,66 times in total,(more useless facts.) The origin of the squeal has been subject to debate.Some think it is sampled from the tenor saxophone in the Junior Walker song,’Shoot your Shot,’ while it has been suggested it is Prince squealing from his 1991 song ‘Gett Off.’ Everlast has said it is definitely not Prince,but as it has been pointed out admitting to a Prince sample would have dire financial consequences.
‘Pack it up pack it in let me begin,I came to win,battle me that’s a sin.’
