Rick Perry makes a 'Jump' for Van Halen

Next time, Rick, set your phone to vibrate.

Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry, delivering a speech in Iowa Thursday, was cut off by a call from his daughter Sydney, ABC News reports. The ringtone? Van Halen's "Jump." Who knew he's a fan?!

“That’s my daughter, I’ll call her back,” Perry told the crowd, the network reports. “Normally I always take my daughter’s call, but she will understand this one time.”

The Texas governor isn't the only presidential contender who's had a ringtone interruption. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich's phone went off during a speech in May. The song? Abba's "Dancing Queen." 

So what would be the very best ringtones for each candidate? Let us know!
