"Imagine a Jump" (Lennon and Van Halen Touch in Nihilism)

Lennon's "Imagine" mashed up with a song of Van Halen, meets its philosophical and intellectual equal

"Imagine a Jump". 

Mashup artist Mighty Mike mashed-up two rock classics that, on the surface, have nothing in common. John Lennon’s instrumental version of "Imagine" is combined with David Lee Roth’s a cappella vocals from Van Halen’s acoustic recording of "Jump," and the result is a surprisingly seamless fusion of seemingly polar opposites, yet touching each other ultimately in nihilism. It is fittingly titled "Imagine a Jump".
