Don't look for too much hidden meaning in the expression "Monkey Gone to Heaven," because according to the song's scribe, Black Francis (a.k.a. Frank Black), "The phrase 'monkey gone to heaven' just sounds neat." Despite his breeziness, the song -- as well as the album -- has heavy overtones, including references to God and environmentalism, subjects not normally referenced in rock songs. Why the heady allusions? As the Pixies fromtman said, "It wasn't like we thought we'd get played on the radio."
