How long were they supposed to wait? Ten years after the Pixies launched their reincarnation as a touring band, they've cranked out a new album – exactly what fans praised them for not doing back in 2004. It might seem like sacrilege, especially without the much-missed sass of Kim Deal, but that depends on how mystical you want to get about a band as pop as the Pixies. Indie Cindy has hit-or-miss songs already released via digital dribbles and drabs. It's the ballads, rather than the overly shtick-laden rockers, that truly evoke the Pixies – especially "Greens and Blues" and "Andro Queen," where Frank Black travels through space to find crush-worthy alien girls.

    “You Oughta Know”

    Alanis Morissette | 1995

    This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
