Review The Song (5)



got me a movie
i want you to know

a bit more about this song | Reviewer: Dane Walker | 12/28/12

It's true that the song refers to the film "un chien andalou". However, the original lyrics were "I want to shed! appolonia", which was a reference to the girl in Purple Rain. So there :)

used to get stoned in the film projection booth | Reviewer: stonedinthefilmbooth | 9/2/08

I used to run the projectors for don levine and we would smoke some good weed while running those films in avant garde film. funny don would always wear the same black jacket. i went to school with BK during those classes. very funny.

ehhhh actually Talia is also not quite right... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/4/08

I go to UMass Amherst, where pixies members Black Francis and Joey Santiago went to college. As it just so happens, this song is actually about a class at UMass. It's about "Avante Gard Film and the Narrative" a class taught by Don Levine, and the films showcased in that class. One of the movies was "Chien Andalou", however this song came to be because of how Don Levine RUINS THE ENDING TO EVERY MOVIE YOU WATCH IN THAT CLASS. Black Francis used to get so angry he would stand up in the middle of the auditorium and yell at Levine... including a time he called Levine the "DEBASER!!!". So there.


Not quite | Reviewer: Talia | 1/11/08

The person above was almost correct in saying the song was inspired by a film called Un Chien Andalusia, but that's not the case. The film was co-made by Salvador Dali and Luis Bunuel and it was actually called Un Chien Andalou. Not Andalusia. Frank Black wrote the song ├žause he liked the film and he thought andalou didn't sound right so he just changed it to andalusia for the song. The title for the movie translates to Andalusian Dog and the filmakers didn't connect the title in anyway to what they actually made the film about.

i want you to know | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/2/07

the pixies, i saw them at the v festival in england and my life changed forever. that was about 5 years ago now and this song just always reminds me of that amazing day. the song was inspired by the film un chien andalusia which featured a womans eyeball being cut open.
