Van Halen's 'Jump' In A Minor Key Is So Eerie It's Perfect For Halloween

Rehfeldt's "Jump" reappeared a few weeks ago. The musician 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 new instrumental 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 (and possibly because trying to reproduce Eddie Van Halen's original guitar solo seemed a little out-of-bounds).
