One of the all time great songs from a talented musical group.

Going back and reading through the lyrics after the fact gave me a whole new perspective about this song... and now I like it even more.

I have loved this song since the first time I heard it on the radio in 2001 or 2002.

It's easier for me to explain what I like and don't like about an electronic device or home product, but it's more elusive to describe my opinions about a song. But let me try.

I always enjoyed the melody, string instruments and especially the colorful imagery of Drops of Jupiter. Phrases like "did you sail across the sun" and "dance along the light of day" evoke a visualize a magical, celestial moving picture in my mind.

The strings, viola/violin/cello, add a nice classy touch. It goes without saying that Pat Monahan's unique voice and inflection make this song, but it goes without saying... kudos to the whole band for a wonderful piece as it's always a collaborative effort.

I didn't spend a whole lot of time trying to interpret this song before, but phrases like "did you miss me while you were looking for yourself out there" and "did you fall for a shooting star" made me think this song was about a lover who came back after being the one who broke off the relationship.

But what blew me away was seeing a video explaining that this song was inspired by the death of Pat's mother. Sometimes sadness can inspire the creation of something special and real.

Going back and reading through the lyrics after the fact gave me a whole new perspective about this song... and now I like it even more.

PROS:
- Lyrics and colorful imagery
- Vocals
- Instrumentals with additional string instruments
- Inspiration for this song

CONS:
- none

There is no question that Train has shown a strong return to the mainstream this past year as one of the strongest guilty pleasures of the past decade. While they just haven't had the definitive sales that have shown with their albums in awhile, they have made a good impact back into the light with Hey, Soul Sister from their new record Save Me, San Francisco. But, their classic songs still remain as distinctive as you could imagine like Drops Of Jupiter, their 2001 smash which is still as strong to listen to today, as it was when they Pat Monahan and company made it nearly a decade ago. So if you've loved Hey, Soul Sister, than add Drops Of Jupiter to your MP3 collection.

Song: B+

I remember this song being played everywhere back in the day. The lyrics make about as much sense as an abstract painting, in that they can be beautiful without clear logic. Nice vocals, and I enjoy the string accompaniment. Without any harsh or jarring sounds, this is a song to listen to while relaxing or, for an artist (writer, painter, etc.) to play in the background while you let your thoughts wander in search of inspiration.
Just my opinion.

I was on a date when I first heard "Drops of Jupiter." As soon as it ended, I told my date that Train would win the Song of the Year Grammy for it. The lyrics were as good as I had heard in years. Sure enough, Song of the Year. In fact, when it won, she called me from the city to which she had moved to remind me about my prediction. I still listen to it all the time. Great, great song. Great, great group.

Love this song! I didn't realize I was such a Train fan until I started browsing and listening to samples. You won't be disappointed. Super fast download, too. Love that I can play it anytime anywhere with Amazon's downloads. It allows me to play it from my Kindle Fire, my husbands Fire, my son's ipod, my laptop...pretty much anywhere.

Even the name is good. If you don't feel something when you hear the title song you haven't a romantic or imaginative bone in you. I love this album, and saw the show they backed it with. It too was an excellent. The lyrics are inventive and well-written, the songs melodic and really suit the words.

This song hits the right spot for someone whose love has left him/her to better understand themselves. You want your love to be content with their decision but also miss them, especially if they come back and do not want the same kind of relationship.
