2 Drops of Jupiter

This song made Train who they are. They wouldn't be anywhere as close to being as good of a band as they are right now without this song. Awesome song and it is definitely one of the best I have ever heard before. Nothing will ever compare to it. Oh WORD!

BEST SONG EVER! Seriously pat monahan (lead singer of train) wrote this about his mom! He never imagined this is what would've made him famous such a heartfelt song, this is one of my top ten of all time! No song can come close

Come on this should be number 1, "hey souls sister" is a great song. But its never gonna top Drops of jupiter

One of the best songs I have ever heard. Period.

3 Drive By

This Song will make you Dance like Crazy No matter whatever your preferred genre is. A great song and a nice story behind it too. Sud definitely be in top3 if not the no. 1

This is my favorite song in the world. It is so beautiful and it is good for all song lovers. It should really be in the top 3 at least it doesn't have to be 1st.

The best song I've heard. I like this song like crazy. A song with amazing music and a beautiful story. This is such a song that it is liked by even those people who don't even relate it to themselves or their life (i am one among them too! )

I used to think Soul Sister was best. Then I heard this. I'm learning it on guitar asap. Its one of the best songs I've EVER heard. As soon as it starts my foot begins to tap. You just have to get up and dance. Also has a great meaning in the lyrics.

4 50 Ways to Say Goodbye

My brother showed me this song about a day ago and I just can't get enough of it! It's one of my favorite songs of all time. Plus, it has Mexican music at the begining!

Best Song EVER by TRAIN!
Can listen to it all day
And the video is also the awesomest!

No matter how many times I listen to this song, I will never get sick of it. I know all the words, and I always seem to have it stuck in my head. It's my third favorite song after "Waves", and "Walking on Sunshine." The lyrics are cool, and I like the type of musical tone it has to it. Definitely #1 Train song for me. - RockFashionista

Best Train song yet. Funny lyrics and I love the music at the beginning! I personally think should be #1. Hilarious music video too. This song inspired me and is the first song by Train that I heard. This is what made me start liking them. Definitely worth listening to.

This song carries sweet memories of me singing along with my sister. Puts me in a good mood every time

6 Marry Me

My favorite song

One of THE most beautiful songs I have ever heard... "Hey soul sister" is also an amazing song, but I think this one touches people in a more delicate manner. It reminds me of a friend I had who moved away, and I miss her so much...

Love this song - we had it played during our wedding ceremony! It always makes me cry.

I just can't stop myself from saying this every time I hear the song... I became a fan of train after listening to this song! Hey soul sister rocks too but this song is just so much sweeter!

7 Calling All Angels

To me the song is like 90's land mark, it makes me nostalgic... I like the guy (pat monahan.

I love this song. It reminds us that even though there are bad people in the world there are still many good people.

Good song. It should be number one but people are just going about how many times they heard it on the radio. Not on the quality of the song.

Love this song! Great song to listen to on vacation chillin' on the beach or at the pool!

8 Meet Virginia

This song is very catchy and has a lot of energy. Should be at least #3 - Jukeboxhero

Very surprised this isn't in top 3. Tied for 1st with Drops of Jupiter for me.

I love this song! It's one of my upmost favorites by Train It's a song you can listen to for hours without getting tired of it

Amazing song. I think it's the best example of Train's ability to paint a surreal and at the same time so real story. This is the very first hit of the band, the prototype of their biggest succes, Drops of Jupiter, even if it have this strange (in a good way) feeling that moves you in a particular way that other Train songs don't (or do in a different way). But Meet Virginia, in my opinion, is the evolution of a Train demo, maybe the most emotional one, called Avery, that if you love Meet Virginia, you'll certainly love.

9 Save Me, San Francisco

Nothing beats this song! The best I've ever heard in my life! Totally describes my life! I so listen to it each and every time I feel down and High

This song is so catchy!
Its rhythm is smooth and upbeat, and it gets stuck inside your head for, like, a month!

I love the chorus because it is so catchy! The song is so upbeat and fun to listen to.

10 When I Look to the Sky

INCREDIBLE SONG! I fell in love with it and Train the very first time I heard it. Yeah, it's kinda like Drops Of Jupiter but has it's own amazing, beautiful sound. It's heaven...what more can I say?

I love this song. It's kinda similar to drops of Jupiter. I went a few years without hearing it. Two months ago I rediscovered it and fell in love with it. This is one of Train's best songs.

So good! Similar to Drops of Jupiter but has it's own unique sound. I really wish they still played this at concerts because it is definitely an oldie but a goodie!

Amazing song, just amazing. Since the first time I heard it I completely fall in love and it completely changed my mind on Train. This is why I became a great fan of the band and later only of Pat Monahan in his solo album Last of Seven

12 Parachute

This song is so emotional and the meaning of the lyrics sometimes hits me inside. That no matter what, there will always be someone there for me.

Love the way it makes me feel secure and hopeful. Pat is never better than the emotion here.

This song is far better than few songs in top ten... It must be in top 5 man...

So good a song and such a low rank?!

13 Angel In Blue Jeans

This song... No doubt can come under top 10. Its relatively an awesome song

The only reason this song isn't number one is because it's relatively new. - MaxAttaxSportz

You gotta kidding me this song is best. This should be on the top.

Whoa oh oh oh oh oh!

14 Ordinary

This song is their most underrated hit. Hopefully it's included on their inevitible greatest hits cd...

"I'll soon by the grace of God listen to it"

By far their best song.

15 Bulletproof Picasso

Great song. Should make its way up into the top 10!

One of the best of the band. Should be on top 10

19 Half Moon Bay

Incredible song! A must-listen!

20 Brick by Brick

It's a great song!

21 Give It All

I don't know why but this song is so beautiful

The best song from their newest album.Its lyrics are sooo much touching and beautiful that it always makes me feel good.

22 Shake Up Christmas

This song no matter what... Will get you into Such a HAPPY MOOD...
The Rhyme, lyrics are all beautiful...
And it celebrates the the spirit of Christmas

If this song was a potato, it would be a good potato.

Just listening to this song makes you happy, even stuck in snow.

It should be in second place, such a great song

23 Hopeless

I personally got attached to this song from the time I listened to the full track. It has this feel of wanting to get close connection, but it shows how love can be hard to show even when there is so much that can be shown. Definitely has become one of my favorites.

24 This Ain't Goodbye

This song is for sure the best Train song. I'm a huge fan of their music, and I've listened to all of their songs. The combination of the beautiful sound of the violin, with such amazing lyrics, it's a song that can not be topped. Definitely my favorite Train song, and I even go so far as to say that it's my favorite song altogether.

Such a beautiful song. If you haven't heard it it's worth listening to. It makes me really sad but is absolutely fantastic and deserves more recognition.

The emotion in this song brings tears to my eyes. Not the most popular but one of, if not the best song by them

This is a sad song but really beautiful and it's just one those songs that seems to strike a chord in our hearts. This should be at the top ten. Simply worth listening to.

The Lyrics totally rocks. One of my most favorite songs of all time.

32 To Be Loved

I like this song more than some of the top 10 songs! I think it's a more unknown song since it was in the soundtrack for a movie that wasn't very popular.

WHAT THE HELL? This by far is their greatest song. And, it's even used in a movie. Please listen to this song and vote this up the list. It should be number 1

This song made me love train. I started asking about them the first time I heard the song

Holy crap!
This wasn't even on the list!?
This is - hands down - there greatest song!
Check it out

34 I Am

Most people, if they even know this album, think that Meet Virginia is the only good song to come off it. But there are so many other great ones, like Free, Homesick, and Idaho. I Am is at least the second best song off the album. The lyrics are well thought out, and the harmonica adds a great element to it. It also has a very memorable chorus that can get stuck in your head, but in a pleasant way.

One of their early hits and definitely one of their tops songs. Great lyrics with a country kick to it. Fans will love it - andrewkennethjose

35 Cab

Best song by Train. I can't believe it's not in the top ten!

37 It's About You

this song is better then If It's Love or Meet Virginia - samuelMCL7

38 Sing Together

It's such a cute song. - Pluma

39 Mississippi

Maybe not typical of their music but definitely the best Train song. Takes me to a summer night with the moon and stars out. And your first love of course.

This a great song! Should be way up this list, man.

40 You Can Finally Meet My Mom
41 Umbrella
