Here Comes My Man

Album: Handwritten (2012)

Songfacts®:

  • Vocalist and songwriter Brian Fallon told NME this is, "somewhere between 'I'm Waiting For The Man' by The Velvet Underground and 'Single Ladies' by Beyoncé." He added: "I'm totally serious. Those two songs somehow mashed up in my brain. It's the first time I've written from a girl's point of view, and it's basically Lou Reed meets, 'If you liked it then you should have put a ring on it.'"
  • Canadian actress Elisha Cuthbert stars in the Kevin Slack-directed music video. She plays the role of "Scarlett," who is stuck in a relationship without any future. "The unique thing about this video is Brian wrote this song from the point of view of a woman, which is not something we're used to," said Slack.

    Cuthbert previously appeared in the visual for Weezer's 2005 single "Perfect Situation" where she played the lead singer of fictional group Weeze. She is best known for her roles as Kim Bauer in the American action-thriller television series 24 and Alex Kerkovich in the ABC ensemble comedy series Happy Endings.
