This song features The Pet Shop Boys. The duo also collaborated with Williams on the song "We're the Pet Shop Boys," which was also on Rudebox.
The song is a cheeky reference to a conversation Robbie Williams had with Tania Strecker over the reason her former boyfriend Guy Ritchie gave for dumping her for Madonna. Apparently Tanya told Robbie that Guy had said to her: "Look, you know I really love you, but she's Madonna."
According to the Daily Mirror, Madonna gave this the thumbs up when Robbie personally played it for her at her London home, shortly after writing it.
On his record label's website, Williams said musically this was inspired by the Kraftwerk song "Tour De France."
The video features a plethora of LA's most well-known drag queens plus Robbie himself in full drag queen regalia. Alexis Arquette (brother of the famed Arquette acting family siblings Patricia, Rosanna and David) appears as one of the drag queens.
"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.
Until December 5, 1998, a song had to be issued as a single to make the Hot 100. Aaliyah's "Try Again" was the first tune to top the chart based on airplay alone, without any sales figures being included.
