Earworm: Drops of Jupiter

I don't understand the appeal of Train. They're pleasant enough, but there are plenty of bands out there that sound exactly the same without inane lyrics. Take "Hey Soul Sister," their big hit from last year. The reference to the lead singer's untrimmed chest is enough to make me want to burn my memory recepticles away forever.

That's nothing compared to what in my mind is their most inexcusable affront on songwriting. What is with line about a shooting star without a permanent scar in "Drops of Jupiter?" The mysteries of the universe will never unfold for me.

I love Train but the untamed chest comment is creepy. What are some bands that sound like them that I may not have heard of?
