‘Drops of Jupiter’ by Duo Jake and Shelby

The band Train is an extremely well-liked group that has produced such hits as “Hey, Soul Sister,” “Marry Me” and “Meet Virginia.” Despite all their success, one of Train’s hits towers above the rest. 

In the last couple of decades, there probably has not been a song more recognizable, played and covered than Train’s “Drops of Jupiter.” A quick Google search shows that even Taylor Swift has covered the popular song. This time, though, music duo Jake & Shelby take their turn at “Drops of Jupiter.”

The video from the self-described “best friends” from Nashville, Tennessee, is very simple and minimalistic but effective. The clip begins with the two musicians sitting on the ground, back-to-back. Jakes strums on the guitar as Shelby sings the beautifully written lyrics.

“And tell me, did you fall for a shooting star?
One without a permanent scar, and did you miss me
While you were looking for yourself out there?”

Approximately 40 seconds into the video, the duo switches things up a bit. Shelby momentarily sits with legs across Jake’s. A few moments later, we get a shot of Jake standing by his lonesome as he plays the guitar.

For the next 20 seconds or so, the video cuts between the two musicians in these three positions – back-to-back, Shelby with her legs on top of Jake’s and Jake standing and playing his instrument by himself.

Then around the 1-minute mark, things get changed up once again. Jake, sitting in a chair, is playfully spun around by Shelby. 

The video, while not as flashy, does keep the focus on their singing and musical ability. And as evidenced by their top-notch sound, both have plenty of it.
