The track's bluesy guitar loop was sampled from "Where There's A Will (There's A Way)," a track from Los Angeles singer-songwriter D.J. Rogers' 1973 eponymous debut album. During a listening session for Undun at Manhattan's Legacy Studios The Roots manager, Rich Nichols, explained the sample is the first and only the band have ever used. In the past even the beats credited to Dilla, such as 2006's "Can't Stop This," were replayed by the band.
"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.
Carla Thomas became the first woman to achieve a Top 10 hit on the Hot 100 with a song she wrote herself when "Gee Whiz (Look At His Eyes)" reached the chart's top tier in 1961. Thomas was just 16-years-old when she penned it.
