Recording information by Mark49GOLD

"Drops of Jupiter " is a song written and recorded by American rock band Train. It was released in February 2001 as the lead single from their second album Drops of Jupiter (2001). The song hit the top 5 of the Billboard Hot 100 chart and also charted in the top 40 for 29 weeks.The single from Europe had tracks "It's Love", "This Is Not Your Life", and "Sharks" as its B-sides. The song was ranked at No. 4 on Billboard's 2001 list of top singles of the year, a spot higher than the song peaked.
The recording features the signature strings of arranger Paul Buckmaster, who won the 2001 Grammy Award for Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocalist(s) for "Drops of Jupiter".
Lead singer Patrick Monahan has stated that the song was inspired by his late mother, who had died after a struggle with cancer, and that the opening lines "came to in a dream." He said, "The process of creation wasn't easy. I just couldn't figure out what to write, but then I woke up from a dream about a year after my mother passed away with the words 'back in the atmosphere...It was just her way of saying what it was like – she was swimming through the planets and came to me with drops of Jupiter in her hair."The verse has a noted resemblance to the chorus of "Drift Away", a song most famously performed by Dobie Gray.
