In the 69 Love Songs booklet, Stephin Merritt cites the 1965 film [She], featuring Ursula Andress as 'Ayesha (She who must be obeyed)', as a reference point for the queen of the title. (Since the album was released, there has been a [remake] of the film.)
The idea of the 'noble savage' is a romantic one in a different sense from that usually applied to love songs [source].
