This is such a goofy song! (with great pop melodies) Well, the whole album is awesome. I love having a song that features the wrod "aerodynamics". Incidently, the first time I typed this comment in I hit return and it apparently put in my "rating" of the song, which I hadn't set yet so was no doubt a 3, damn. It is beyond 5.

He's mostly known by everyone as Gustave Eiffel, but his full name is indeed Alexandre Gustave Eiffel. Google it for yourself if you don't believe me. :- D

That is incorrect. The architect of the Eiffel Tower was Gustave Eiffel, not Alec. Who was Alec? Who the hell knows. It's a Pixies song - it doesn't have to make sense.
