“Monahan wrote “Drops of Jupiter” soon after his mom had passed away following a battle with cancer. In the song, he imagines that after dying his mom’s spirit could go anywhere, and so a person would be likely to go explore the universe. … Thus, his mother returned to visit him with “drops of Jupiter” in her hair.”
I recently found out that “Drops Of Jupiter” was one of my late son’s favorite songs. I had heard before even when he lived with us. I know he listened to it. But I never paid attention to the lyrics. Well I have listened to it many times in the last few days. His friend told me that my son thought the lyrics were beautiful, poetry. You would think I would have listened closer back then. So I want to share the video with the lyrics.
