Info about song
"Drops of Jupiter (Tell Me)" is an alternative rock song by California rock band Train on their second album Drops of Jupiter (2001). It was their first single from the album, and hit the top 5 of the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number 5 on the chart. The song has spent over 100 weeks on the Adult Contemporary charts, and is still charting on the Recurrents chart. Although the song was released years before digital download became commonplace, the song has sold over 100,000 downloads (giving it a Gold certification by the RIAA), and hit the top 50 of the Digital Downloads charts five years after its release. The song won 2 Grammy Awards for "Best Rock Song" and "Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocalist(s)". Due to its unique and enigmatic lyrics, the meaning of song has been the subject of speculation since its release. Lead singer Pat Monahan has stated that the song was inspired by the death of his mother, and that the opening lines came to him in a dream. The song, which started as a song about his mother, has evolved into a love song, according to Monahan in 2006. On March 29, 2005, Judy Collins release a cover version of this song on her Portrait of an American Girl album.
