Train's "Hey Soul Sister"

Train's got a new album out: Save Me San Francisco.

It's their first album in several years, and I'm definitely enjoying "Hey Soul Sister." It's very catchy with a good straightforward beat and a fun uptick in the singer's (Patrick Monahan) voice on the chorus.

Train formed in the 90's in San Francisco. I was trying to remember when "Drops of Jupiter" was big. I've just checked Wikipedia -- it came out in March 2001 and was popular for an entire year.

Right now "Hey Soul Sister" is #56 on Billboard's Hot 100 and has been on the chart for four weeks. I would not be surprised if it continues to gain radio play and move up the chart. Here's a sample of the lyrics:

Your lipstick stains
on the front lobe of my left side brains

I knew I wouldn't forget you
and so I went and let you blow my mind

Your sweet moon beams
The smell of you in every single dream I dream
I knew when we collided you're the one I have decided
Who's one of my kind

Hey soul sister ain't that Mister Mister on the radio stereo
The way you move ain't fair you know

Speaking of continuing to get popular: Jason Derulo's "Watcha Say" is now #2 on the Billboard chart.
