I call bullshit on that.

It's not as though the Pixies are a household name.

Yeah, but for a big music fan who grew up with Pearl Jam and Nirvana, it seems highly unlikely he never heard that song.

I just got this album. I've heard "45", but that's it. How is it?

59 Sound is still my favorite though, as I love the stories and themes running throughout it.

That's all we've got so far.

I'm just gonna put this out there. I'm 7 years younger than this guy, so maybe that's a big enough gap, but until about one year ago, I'd never heard of the song, and I'd like to think I'm not exactly close-minded about music. Just didn't know a ton by the Pixies until then.

Why is this a topic of interest to begin with? The songs don't even have the same title.

zomg Taylor Swift didn't know The Cure had already written Lovesong

While any similarities between “Too Much Blood” and the forgotten 1983 Rolling Stones cut of the same name are accidental (Hint: there aren’t any), one song that is still very much a reference to Fallon’s record collection is Handwritten’s acoustic-guitar-shrouded, sunshine-pop, Byrds/Tom Petty-homage “Here Comes My Man.” That title sound familiar, doesn’t it?
“I’m not really a Pixies guy,” Fallon recalls, “I was asking in the studio, I was like, ‘Isn’t there another song called ‘Here Comes My Man’?… And then we found out, ‘oh, the Pixies, yeah. And I’m like, ‘What’s their song about?’”
Not unlike Fallon’s lyric and title, Pixies’ “Here Comes Your Man” is inspired by The Velvet Underground’s “Waiting For The Man.”
“It kinda came from a mix between Beyonce, with ‘Single Ladies’ – and this is totally true; and this is what I’m talkin’ about, about not being cool,” Fallon says, “and Lou Reed – ‘Waiting For My Man.’”
Now let us all move on.

So he did know!

Anyway, yeah, whatever. I haven't even listened to the album yet so I might do that to contribute something more productive to the thread.

Fallon hasn't done a solo thing, but if you are referring to the side project he did with Ian, The Horrible Crowes, I don't recall it being marketed as Springstein-esque. I didn't see them live, but I don't think that album particularly sounds like that anyway. But that's just me. I prefer TGA anyway.

Besides Fallon, TGA have a delicious bassist, whom I refer to as a god because...well, look at him!
It was actually the spoiler tag part that was in response to your post. I post in the opposite of deep

Where not every

Thought goes on the

Same line.

Meaning, usually if theres a separation, those two things aren't related (unless theyre breaking up a really huge wall of text). Although there is absolutely no way you're going to know how my brain works, so I see why you would think I was responding to you. Could have sworn Fallon did a solo acoustic-y type deal, perhaps it was just with the horrible crowes and his name was bigger than the band name on the flyer/site I saw. I can't remember, it was a little while ago. Anyway, I'm about as done with this thread as I am with this band.

Listening to the Gaslight Anthem album today. Wow, I loved it almost straight away. For me, it's their best album so far

Strangely, "Mae" reminds me of U2's Mercy
