In 1994 vormen Patrick Monahan, Jimmy Stafford en Scott Underwood in San Francisco de band Train. Na wat personele wisselingen voegen zich ook Johnny Colt en Brandon Bush zich bij de band. In 2001 wordt Drops Of Jupiter hun wereldwijde doorbraak. Het nummer bereikt in de Top 40 de derde plaats.

Jarenlang lijkt de groep het bij één hit in ons land te houden. Toch komt er bijna tien jaar later een meer dan succesvolle opvolger met Hey Soul Sister. De single staat zeven achtereenvolgende weken op nummer 1 en wordt hun grootste hit in ons land. Ook de opvolgers Shake Up Christmas en Drive By weten de top 10 te bereiken.

De drie singles van het album California 37, 50 Ways To Say Goodbye, Mermaid en Bruises (met Ashley Monroe), komen niet bij de beste 10 terecht.

In september van 2014 verschijnt het nieuwe album, Bulletproof Picasso, waarvan Angel In Blue Jeans als eerste de Top 40 bereikt. Later wordt ook de titeltrack van het album als single aangemerkt.
Eind 2015 maakt Train een compleet album met kerstnummers. Een cover van de klassieker van Slade, Merry Christmas Everybody, wordt als single aangemerkt.


Songtekst

While everybody else is getting out of bed
I'm usually getting in it
I'm not in it to win it
And there's a thousand ways you can skin it

My feet have been on the floor
Flat like an idle singer
Remember winger
I digress
I confess you are the best thing in my life

But I'm afraid when I hear stories
About a husband and wife
There's no happy endings
No Henry Lee
But you are the greatest thing about me

[Chorus]
If it's love
And we decide that it's forever
No one else could do it better
If it's love
And we're two birds of a feather
Then the rest is just whenever
And if I'm addicted to loving you
And you're addicted to my love too
We can be them two birds of a feather
That flock together
Love, love
Got to have something to keep us together
Love, Love
That's enough for me

Took a loan on a house I own
Can't be a queen bee without a bee throne
I wanna buy ya everything
Except cologne
'cause it's poison
We can travel to Spain where the rain falls
Mainly on the plain side and sing
'cause it is we can laugh we can sing
Have ten kids and give them everything
Hold our cell phones up in the air
And just be glad we made it here alive
On a spinning ball in the middle of space
I love you from your toes to your face

[Chorus]

You can move in
I won't ask where you've been
'cause everybody has a past
When we're older
We'll do it all over again

When everybody else is getting out of bed
I'm usually getting in it
I'm not in it to win it
I'm in it for you

If it's love
And we're two birds of a feather
Then the rest is just whenever
Then the rest is just whenever

If it's love
And we decide that it's forever
No one else could do it better
And if I'm addicted to loving you
And you're addicted to my love too
We can be them two birds of a feather
That flock together
Love, love
Got to have something to keep us together
Love, love
Got to have something to keep us together
Love, love
That's enough for me
