Originally from the Neil Young tribute album "The Bridge" - I strongly suggest picking that up if you can find it, by the way - this song is one of the high-water marks for The Pixies. I love these guys, and was fortunate enough to see them live once - in 1991. They're really good, and I'm really that old. The band's anger matches the rage that is an undercurrent in a lot of Neil Young's music. This is one of the more melancholy songs in his catalog, but the band are up to the task.
A lot of people don't know that this isn't their only Neil Young cover. One of his early songs - I've Been Waiting For You - was a B-side to the Pixies' single Velouria. And it's really good, too - Kim takes more of a lead on the vocals, but she and Black Francis again show the harmonies that make the Pixies great. Highly recommended.
