Guest Blogger Review: Train – Save Me, San Francisco

29 10 2009


I love Pat Monahan and I love Train, and their new album is great! I’ve had “Hey, Soul Sister” on repeat since I first heard it 2 weeks ago, and when I bought the new album yesterday and realized they had a song about my favorite beach town on earth, Half Moon Bay, they stole my heart again!

Aside from the first track on this new album, “Breakfast in Bed” (which is a little dreary for my taste), Train and Pat Monahan have maintained their unique, playful sound- plus, their frequent references to their hometown (I heart SF) always make me happy. And if you’ve ever seen Train in concert you can picture Monahan dancing around on stage with his feminine hand gestures, and enjoy the album all the more because of this visual. You’ve gotta love a straight man from San Francisco who loves what he’s doing and doesn’t care what he looks like in front of millions on stage. I do!

Train will be at The Vic in Chicago on Nov. 2 at 7:30 pm. If you haven’t seen them before, or if you have, make sure you check them out!

Half Moon Bay is a beach town in Northern California near San Francisco! Or, I guess you’re looking for the song? Not sure if it’s available on iTunes Argentina, maybe try Thanks!
