This was inspired by the Arctic Monkeys track "Fake Tales of San Francisco," from their first album, Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not. You Me At Six singer Josh Franceschi told Kerrang: "(AM vocalist) Alex Turner has always been really good and setting scenes with his lyrics, and I was kind of trying to do something similar here."
After writing the first guitar riffs and a middle eight, Francheschi took his idea to drummer Dan Flint's home studio. He recalled: "There was only me, Matt (Barnes, bass) and Dan there, so I said I'd track some guitar to make the rough demo, which was the first time I've done that. We must have chopped and changed the structure of this song 100 times, to the point where we almost gave up on that, but I'm glad we persevered."
"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.
The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
