All Around The World
Sing For Joy
Selkie's Bride
Fort Wayne

Those are for me the most emotional FBF songs
Strangely, a Pixies song never made me cry, not the proper vibe

I think that has since actually made me cry, during a particularly bad patch...

Seems to me it’s all about how you come at sadness. Expressed as release it becomes joy.

As far as Charles Frank Black Francis Thompson’s music and its ability to convey that joy, well.. In the right place at the right time to accept it, usually driving, I’ve definitely been moved to that point by many of his songs. The undeniable effects of sleep deprivation play a role in this phenomenon for me. :)

The all-in sincerity of Chip Away Boy and I Will Run After You. And with End of Miles, around the parts “sold my el Camino” and “stranger helped me out when I was thirstiest” particularly. Brings imagery of when you are first setting out on your own and there are just so many things you don’t know.

Even the shouty Suffering , and I Need Peace off of the first Catholics album gets me there sometimes.
Hearing Black Francis tear into Threshold Apprehension hit me just right the first time I heard that driving home from yet another day at work in commute traffic. Beautiful release saying (to me anyway) shake things up if you’re feeling dead damnit! Cant’ Break a Heart and Have It as well. Whew!

After you’ve heard these songs many times maybe they don’t affect you as strongly every time you hear them of course, but if it’s been awhile and you come back to them..

Definitely one of the main reasons I have always dug the man’s music is the range of expressiveness he brings to the table. I can relate to his particular voice and approach.

I shed a tear or two after hearing Magdalena 318 for the first time when they debuted it live in LA in 2013 with Kim Shattuck.... it was the first of the new songs that to me sounded like classic Pixies. Tears of joy celebrating the return of that classic Pixies magic.
