Features / Song of the Month

Song of the Month | Pixies

Welcome to the first song of the month on Don’t Dance Her Down Boys. From now on every month we will choose a song of the month. This song may reflect the thoughts and feelings of the nation, the major issues occurring at that time or it might just be my own personal choice.
This month’s song is the latter since I have been listening to the Pixies non-stop since I got round to unearthing their albums a few months ago. They have so many amazing songs that I could write a whole blog devoted to how amazing the Pixies are but I won’t, I kinda want to be a bit more diverse than that.
There are so many reasons I love this song, the simple but effective bass line, Frank Black’s high pitched vocals that open the track, the idea of having a big BIG love.
The main reason I love this song are Kim Deal’s vocals. She brings a new dimension to the song. There are no strikingly powerful vocals or whitney-esque warbles. Deal coyly sings about love in a way the divas just never could.
Deal’s simplistic vocals appeal way more to men and women then anyone ever could. The song sounds like something you would write about your first boyfriend to impress him and that’s what makes it so realistic.
If I ever fall in love this will be playing in the background the moment I realise. What…I live my life in a Meg Ryan Chick Flick, well doesn’t everyone from time to time.
And this I know
His teeth as white as snow
What a gas it was to see him
Walk her every day
Into a shady place
With her lips she said she said
Hey Paul, Hey Paul, Hey Paul, let’s have a ball [3x]
Gigantic, gigantic, gigantic
A big big love
Gigantic, gigantic, gigantic
A big big love
Lovely legs they are
What a big black mess
What a hunk of love
Walk her every day into a shady place
He’s like the dark, but I’d want him
Hey Paul, Hey Paul, Hey Paul, let’s have a ball [3x]
Gigantic, gigantic, gigantic
A big big love
Gigantic, gigantic, gigantic
A big big love
Gigantic, gigantic, gigantic
A big big love
Gigantic, gigantic, gigantic
A big big love
