VIDEO OF THE WEEK: THE POINTER SISTERS – ‘JUMP (FOR MY LOVE)’

July 29, 2019

It’s amazing to think that this was ever released at all. The song was originally going to be given to crooner Julio Iglesias, and was then bumped in favour of ‘Automatic’.

But once it was out there, there was no stopping its power as it became a global smash charting in Australia, Belgium, Canada, Germany, Eire, the Netherlands, New Zealand, South Africa. Switzerland, the UK and the US.

Though the video interprets the song title a little too literally in places (“The song’s called ‘jump’ so, y’know, let’s just do that…”) there’s absolutely no mistaking the exuberance at the heart of The Pointer Sisters’ performance, and it’s infectious.

Are you really going to sit still through this? You know what to do…
