#120 – Third Eye Blind – “Jumper” – (1997)

So here’s that other song about people jumping off buildings. I wouldn’t call the song “upbeat,” but it’s definitely more… inspired than say, “How It’s Going to Be,” which is a great song in its own right – but this list is only 200 songs long and Third Eye Blind has enough spots on here. “Jumper” is one of those pop-rock songs with meaning, which is something that has become increasingly rare in newer songs as most bands confuse “angst” with “meaning” nowadays.
