According to Moby, the love songs on his seventh studio album, Hotel, explore the idea of temporary relationships. In this track, he's hoping to make things more permanent. He explained on his website: "It's a song about loving someone so much that you want to turn your back on the temporal miasma that we all inhabit, and somehow turn love and intimacy into a timeless, eternal place that you never have to leave."
The album, which finds the electronic artist experimenting with guitar rock, was most successful outside of the US. It peaked at #8 in the UK and went to #1 in Belgium and Switzerland.
"Here Comes Your Man" is the closest the Pixies came to a hit in America. It was rumored to be about a drug dealer, but Black Francis says it's just a story about some hobos who travel by train and die in an earthquake.
