Default 31. Jumpin' The Gun

This is the START OUT OF HELL & ARRIVE TO HEAVEN topic.
Let's Go to Rock 'n' Roll!!!!!!!

Jumpin' The Gun (6)

Hey Meat! What is your gun?
It's a very cheerfully song. The lyrics is funny but the music - I think - has falled behind. I think it isn't so good like other Attitude's song. But the story takes after bad attitude. Just a little bit...

My score: 6



Average: 7.70 (77/10)

I agree With White Of High that this isn't one of the best songs on the album.But saying that,Bad Attitude is a real good album with some really classic songs.I dare say if the other songs were not so great,I would take more notice of it.
It's still a nice fast happy feel good song.It's just not one of my all time favorites.
6.5/10 No crime in havin' some fun.
P.S.White Of High asked what Meat Loaf's gun was.
Jumping the gun is an English phrase meaning to go before your suposed too.If I remember correctly,it comes from sport when a runner starts the race before the starting pistol.

In my opinion this song is great. Real nice. Great music, specially the start is very nice. Well and the lyrics....they fit in nicely.

And if it is about that English term (which Flying Mouse ment) then it's very funny. I always thought it was about something else, LOL.

An 7.5

been searching ages to find this one on here
Now I think this song is great!!! Although I play Meat Loaf everywhere where the best place is driving in the car and some songs are just fantastic driving songs and this is one of them the pistol shot just echos al round makes me duck This song makes me smile and thats gotta be worth an 8/10

this song is really growing on me...once you get out of the steinman mood into the rock and roll mood, this is actually one of the best, so, within that rock and roll context, 8/10

8.75/10 from me!

It looses points for being too short, I love the guitar part on the song, and the three song segment on the B Side to Bad Attitude (JtG,CiYD and DLYMOM) is great - and the reason I had to buy a second copy of the album within a month of buying my first!!

For some reason towards the end of the song, if they ever made a video of it, i imagine there to be this kinda broadway musical dance kind of thing, crazy hand movements etc...but then again it could be the tablets

Oh yeah what i think of the song...

It's not bad, but who sings it with him and if i'm right it's the same woman who sang 'don't you look at me like that' with him as well?
