well i definitely like at least 2 spin doctors songs more than the train song or any black crowes song.

"Hard to Handle" > Spin Doctors >>>>>>> "Drops of Jupiter"

i just think the drops of jupiter vocals always reminded me of black crowes dude. but i actually do like the train song more than any black crowes song that i've heard. i also like georgia satellites keep your hands to yourself more than the two spin doctors songs i like and the train song and any black crowes song. but that's neither here nor there.

hard to handle is a good song but it was better before the crowes got their crowe feet on it!

scott seward, Wednesday, 11 April 2012 01:39 (2 years ago) Permalink

never needed "hard to handle" but that leaves at least 4-5 Crowes tracks that are legit grebt if u dig Sticky Fingers

All Time Low have never really gotten any rock radio play, though

really? woulda sworn this is one of those bands i see on the Modern Rock Top 20 chart that I've never actually heard. Maybe I've just seen them on the albums chart enough to assume.

Butch Walker put his fingerprints on some decent stuff about a decade ago, but I've never understood his esteem with other ex-idolator folk.

ok listening to this song...it's pretty bad, but not any worse than "If It's Love" tbh

Butch Walker's last couple solo albums are great and he was all over the last Fall Out Boy and Pink albums i loved, did prob the best later Weezer single, etc. so that stuff outshines whatever crap he's been involved with.

some dude, Wednesday, 11 April 2012 03:23 (2 years ago) Permalink

i liked "if it's love" too \o/

the whole wordy staccato verses/big melodic chorus thing is really grating to me as a pop/rock formula

oh my god i just looked up Train on Spotify and the deluxe edition of their last album has a cover of "Umbrella"

some dude, Wednesday, 11 April 2012 03:33 (2 years ago) Permalink

nb: also love third eye blind

threeeb is better than train, though, obv

some dude, Wednesday, 11 April 2012 03:37 (2 years ago) Permalink

yeah agreed - i was just saying why the whole wordy staccato verses/big melodic chorus thing might not bother me

recent thug (k3vin k.), Wednesday, 11 April 2012 03:41 (2 years ago) Permalink

yeah i guess that's where you were coming from with that -- "semi charmed life" still has fairly melodic verses, though -- "if it's love" is like a bad standup act where the closest thing to a punchine is "remember winger?"

some dude, Wednesday, 11 April 2012 03:43 (2 years ago) Permalink

Now that this song is here, I know exactly when to set the time machine for so that I can get to their van before they do, slash the tires, and keep them from reaching their major label showcase and getting signed to Aware records or whatever.

how can a band so terrible be simultaneously so entertaining

happens all the time, doesn't it?

some dude, Wednesday, 11 April 2012 13:55 (2 years ago) Permalink

I don't know about "all the time"; for me anyway, terrible bands/artists rarely give me any enjoyment (although when they do, it's a fuckton of enjoyment; see: ICP, Spice Girls).

Train Won't Play At Boy Scouts Jamboree Unless BSA Lifts Ban On Gay Scouts, Band Says

Train has taken a very public stand against the Boy Scouts of America's longstanding ban on the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community by boycotting an upcoming performance.

In November, Scouting Magazine announced that the Grammy-winning band would be headlining the closing stadium show at the 2013 National Scout Jamboree in July along with "Call Me Maybe" sensation Carly Rae Jepsen.

But a campaign to get both performers to denounce the Boy Scouts' anti-gay policies picked up steam on March 1, when GLAAD announced it had signed on to support gay Eagle Scout Derek Nance's Change.org petition.

A few hours after GLAAD signed the petition, Train posted a statement on their website saying the band will not perform at the Jamboree if the Boy Scouts do not change its policies before the summer.

When we booked this show for the Boy Scouts of America we were not aware of any policy barring openly gay people from participation within the organization. Train strongly opposes any kind of policy that questions the equality of any American citizen. We have always seen the BSA as a great and noble organization. We look forward to participating in the Jamboree this summer, as long as they make the right decision before then.

every once in a blue moon, I remember the existence of their minor radio hit "Meet Virginia", featuring the imperishable quatrain Well she wants to live her life / And she thinks about her life / Pulls her hair back as she screams: / "I don't really wanna live this life"

I'll be an old, old man before I can forgive that one

bernard snowy, Sunday, 8 June 2014 11:54 (2 months ago) Permalink

said song also features an egregious & unnecessary rhyme of 'president' with 'president', which is enough to make their more recent clunkers like 'tenderloin'/'tender coin' seem positively Keatsian

My sister and brother-in-law think Train are great. I am not convinced
