She's my fave
Undressing in the sun
Return to sea, bye
Forgetting everyone
Eleven high
Ride a wave

    General Commentthis is such a beauty.

    musically enchanting.

    eleven high are some big waves, atleast where i'm from...

    "She's, like, this naked surfer girl on a board on top of an 11-foot wave, y'know cruising in never-never land. Never-never ocean." (Black Francis in a Q article)

    General Commenttaken from the pixies site:" 'Bossanova' : Everyone knows 'Bossanova' is the greatest record the Beach Boys never made. The Pixies even had the grace to be the first band to use a theramin since 'Good Vibrations', and they had the shirts to match, too. So embroiled in surf lore had Black Francis become that one song 'Ana' was a rare instance of a rock 'n' roll acrostic, wherein the first letters of it's six lines spelt a word: SURFER. Really clever bastard."

    General Commentthe record is stupidly underrated. This is my first tiime hearing it, and it's already my second favorite (just behind Surfer Rosa, a very close race though)

    General CommentAn anagram is a word made bye changing the order of the letters of another word. Just like "veil" and "evil".

    What you're talking about GCNgamer128 is called a palindrome. "Ana" is a palindrome.

    General CommentI think that Ana is a reference to Santa Ana winds that blow from the sea over Southern California. They're supposed to create really great waves for the surfers. Or so I've heard.
