"Jupiter (Swallow the Moon)" is a song by Jewel that was released in 1999 as a single from the album Spirit, following the second single "Down So Long". The single release saw an entirely new version. Jewel re-recorded vocals and the music for a more pop release to the public, even the title of the song was changed from "Jupiter" to "Jupiter (Swallow the Moon)". A commercial single was issued within the U.S. for the song (and internationally). The single is credited as the "radio version".

The single was a minor hit in the US peaking at #39 on the Billboard Adult Top 40 chart and #50 on the Billboard Single Sales chart. The "radio version" of the song fared well at pop radio in the U.S and Canada.

The music video was also played on MTV, MTV2 and VH1. MTV had an episode for the video in its "Making the Video" series.

Music video[edit]

A music video (unlike the album release) was released in 1999. In the beginning of the video, a flash of pictures are shown. Jewel is seen surrounded by neon lamps dancing and later seen sitting in a neon-lit forest at the end of the video.
