Kim Deal said she took inspiration from a 1986 Bruce Beresford movie, "Crimes Of The Heart", in which Sissy Spacek is a married woman who falls in love with a 15-year old black guy. Diane Keaton, Jessica Lange and Sam Shepard were also in this movie. (translated from a Spanish article)
"A good chord progression, very Lou-Reed influenced. I'd had the word 'gigantic' in my mind just because the chord progression seemed very big to me." - Black Francis in SELECT, October 1997
