Song Notes: Revme.Vox.Com: So, both as a test to see about posting videos from YouTube on here (which seems to be working great! Neato!) and also a way to post something to let y'all know I'll have a real mp3 later today, here's the video for the Pixies' "Here Comes Your Man", from the album Doolittle. Also, "Here Comes Your Man" has a big "Wanted Page" ranking on the Wiki, so this I suppose actually kills THREE birds. So, hooray!
Anyway, I've heard that this is one of the most straight-forward love songs Black Francis wrote, and it basically is. It's actually a really sweet, nice song. The sound at the beginning is a pickup switch on a guitar being thrown. Or, at least, that's how I replicated it at home. Perhaps they did something else different. I remember seeing someone asking about that particular chord, which struck me as kinda funny. The video itself is OK—I kind of like the idea of the non-lip-sync-lip-sync, but it seems they could have done a little more with it, and it wasn't _quite_ conistent, but hey. I figure they probably did that less because they thought it would be funny and more because they didn't want to make a video. (For more of the Pixies kinda phonin' in videos, check out Velouria -- gorgeous song, with a... actually kinda pretty video, even though it's just one shot of the band running down a rock side in slow motion. Though, for Awesome Pixies Videos, they do exist—I'm real fond of the video for Alec Eiffel.) - Rev. Syung Myung Me
