19 April 2013 - Pixies - Here Comes Your Man

24 years ago yesterday, the Pixies 2nd full length album, Doolittle, was released.

This song, the 2nd single from that album, was by far the biggest hit the band ever had.  They were - still are - a clearly underground band, so hits were not their driver of success.  However, this song.... this song was a little poppy, and a lot of fun.  I dare you not to sing along.

They had fun with the video, too - even doing a little Talk Talk tribute (the whole "we'll just open our mouths instead of lipsync" thing), and making the video with a fisheye lense and stretch imagery.
