Artiestinformatie

Land   Verenigde Staten

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

Ho ho ho
Shake up the happiness
Wake up the happiness
Shake up the happiness
It's Christmas time

There's a story that I was told
And I wanna tell the world before I get too old
I don't remember it, so let's December it
And reassemble it, oh yeah

Once upon a time in a town like this
A little girl made a great big wish
To fill the world full of happiness
And be on Santa's magic list

Shake it up
Shake up the happiness
Wake it up
Wake up the happiness
Come on, y'all
It's Christmas time

Shake it up
Shake up the happiness
Wake it up
Wake up the happiness
Come on, y'all
It's Christmas time

Ho ho ho
Ho ho ho
It's Christmas time

At the same time, miles away
A little boy made a wish that day
That the world would be okay
If Santa Claus would hear him say

I got dreams and I got love
I got my feet on the ground and family above
Can you send some happiness with my best to the rest
Of the people of the East and the West and

Maybe every once in a while
You give my grandma a reason to smile
't Is the season to smile
It's cold, but we'll be freezin' in style

Let me meet a girl one day
That wants to spread some love this way
We can let our souls run free
And she can open some happiness with me

Shake it up
Shake up the happiness
Wake it up
Wake up the happiness
Come on, y'all
It's Christmas time

Shake it up
Shake up the happiness
Wake it up
Wake up the happiness
Come on, y'all
It's Christmas time

I know you're out there
i hear your reindeer
i see the snow where
Your boots have been
i'm gonna show them
Someday we'll know then
Their love will grow and
They believe again

Shake it up, shake it up
Shake up the happiness
Wake it up
Wake up the happiness
Come on, y'all
It's Christmas time

Shake it up
Shake up the happiness
Wake it up
Wake up the happiness
Come on, y'all
It's Christmas time

Ho ho ho
Ho ho ho
It's Christmas time (Ho ho ho)

Shake it up
Shake up the happiness (Ho ho ho)
Wake it up
Wake up the happiness (Ho ho ho)
Come on, y'all
It's Christmas time (Ho ho ho)

Shake it up
Shake up the happiness (Ho ho ho)
Wake it up
Wake up the happiness (Ho ho ho)
Come on, y'all
It's Christmas time

Ho ho ho
Ho ho ho
Ho ho ho ho
It's Christmas time
