  1. Regina is everywhere

    Yowza! That was so good. I love it when she sings jazzy stuff. I think it's kind of rare to hear her voice get as deep as she gets it in this song. Many singers who have that really high register have a hard time with the low. Of course Regina can do both .
  2. Regina is everywhere

    Wow oh wow! A new song!!!! Funny with Regina; I will never express pressure to her about 'when is the next song or album. Never ever ever! Not ever!! Never would I do that!!! I have a thing about myself and Regina's music. It's done so much for me, that I never want to express a hurrying or anything close to that. Her going her own natural way & pace is what brought me here in the first place. Her creative juices need to stay with her and her only. She's important to music. Plus her last couple years have included marriage and baby. Life consuming things. It's a gift to get any new stuff during these life changing things. But I do bite my nails of when her next thing is going to happen.. .
  3. "Stupid Things" by Sarah Dooley

    At the risk of sounding creepy - Is it just me or does the mouth area of Gwen Stefani look a little Regina-ish? I've been watching The Voice and every time she's smiling or some little mannerism flashes of Regina. It's been giving me this little warm liking toward Gwen Stefani. I already kind of liked her. But these little Regina glimmers make it more .
  4. The New Record

    I get the same way when she performs. Not so much concerts, but, whatever show has TV cameras. She can get a little nervous at those (bless her heart). Too controlled an environment I think. She needs it free flowing. I also react like you when she kills it. I literally do punch the air. With a small jump up, included . Even if I'm by myself I do that. Quite embarrassing if anyone saw . It's like you want everyone to see how truly great she is. It's like showing off your kid or something. I don't know exactly how to explain it. But when you said you felt triumphant, I can tell you get it. It's weird her effect. I feel personally triumphant when she does good. It's like saying "I told you so", or "Didn't I tell you so", something like that. The studio versions of her songs are beauties too me. Live, Studio, Outtake, Demo, Just a Piano, I'll take it all from her. I'm not one to compare versions. I trust her no matter what. Negative talk about 'too many instruments' or, 'over produced', I say Phooey! I want that magic brain of her unswayed by criticism. She needs to Regina her music in any flippin' way she wants with 100% support from us. To me it takes a lot of nerve to scrutinize anything she does. Not that criticism is a bad thing in life, but not her. Not Regina. Too unique. Too special .
  5. The New Record

    one of my favorite versions too. I watched this over and over when it was new. This was right when 'far' was coming out. I wanted to post a review of this from back then that I had read, but I couldn't find it. To paraphrase, it ranted and raved over this being a jaw dropping performance. The article said something like it just stopped everybody cold. Magical, mesmerizing, nothing else that night came close, kind of comments. Wish I could've found it, cause I swear it said stuff like that . I remember her saying she didn't feel that good that night. You can kind of tell. Not in the performance!! And she looks great!! But in her eyes. I guess I've watched her so many times, I can kind of see it when she doesn't feel well. (Isn't just like a fan to think they can read her ) But, isn't it just like her to be as good as this, even under the weather.
  6. New Song - Blood Of Eden

    Only an article saying it's coming:,d.cGE&cad=rja
  7. pictures and videos of interest...

    Yeah, those two guys behind her have no idea who is just a few feet away. I love thinking of that. Makes you wonder how many times any of us could have been that close to someone famous and just didn't know it.
  8. Introduce Yourself! Brümstix Questionnaire

    I thought I'd seen your name for awhile already, but if not, welcome. I was a little nuts like that too when I first came on here. I've toned down a smidge, although I'm still as appreciative of the lady as I ever was, maybe just a little more mature about it. Maybe. Of course that can change at the turn of a new Regina anything .
  9. Dublin review

    This review says some pretty good things. Has a pretty good grip on how it is with Regina. (I thought so anyway). I've tried to explain her in some of the same way.
  10. Regina show announced in Dublin

    Cool little article: This article is actually pre the Glasgow concert. oops! . Oh well, it wasn't much about the concert anyway. P.S. - how do you delete a whole post if you want to move it. I tried.
  11. Showing RespeKt

    Sorry if a topic covers something like this already, if so, I couldn't find it. Sometimes there are expressions and comments about Regina that aren't really interviews or reviews or full articles that I think are worthy of mention just to read about her praises and feel all proud when someone gives her good mention. Don't know about you, but I like to read them. So here's one I found today: Tim McGraw (of all people) snippet of an interview: What’s the last song you downloaded? Imogen? [pause] Imogen Heap. That real weird thing ... Sometimes I’ll run across things that my daughters like. Like Regina Spektor. My daughter was listening to her the other day and that was the first time I heard her and I was like, "Man that’s really cool stuff." So, I’m not very adventurous when it comes to looking for stuff, but I’ll run across stuff and start liking things because of the kids. Full interview if you want: And I have others, but I gonna see first how well this subject takes off .
  12. a new artist doing Regina justice

    Just stumbled on to this. Really great cover!! Being creative with a Regina song? Who woulda thought?
  13. European Summer Tour 2013

    Another song, another winner. That was awesome! It's sounds so good live. She's just got the midas touch doesn't she? Never a bomb, never a dud. Everything she does is always at least really really good. That's the worst it gets for her. And though she's really been around awhile now and has a huge catalogue of music already, doesn't it still seem like she's still in the beginnings of her career? It has that feeling for me still. Can't explain it. Maybe it's just me. Discovery and appreciation of her by most has been so slow, maybe it's that. Not a flash in the pan by no means, but not an overnight success by no means either, but she just grows. She never has setbacks, she only rises, and it's so steady and solid. Never seen anything quite like it.
  14. Regina is everywhere

    Yes, the Greek Theater and she played 'Small Town Moon' & 'Call Them Brothers' with Jack Dishel
  15. Regina is everywhere

    It was a repeat. Actually, I think that was the third time for that episode, at least the Regina part. I still had to watch it though. Of course .
  16. Before there was Regina there was Joni

    Also Ron Wood from Rolling Stones: I'm sure there's more. Hey this might be a nice thread topic on it's own.
  17. post your favorite photos of regina

    She looks so young here.
  18. Regina in Israel

    Very creative. Very nice Regina influence all through the song and still YOUR song all at the same time. Loved it Miss Inbal Raz.
  19. unknown song

    How do we know this is a leak and not just something old and unknown
  20. unknown song

    I remember this song. There was another one that leaked too, and Regina even commented on her disappointment that it had. It sure has been a long time since we've gotten an update on how the musical is doing. Looking forward to it.
  21. New 3 Word Story

    same old road.
  22. Introduce Yourself! Brümstix Questionnaire

    Welcome Ava. 'Regina Spektor & The Beatles'. Beautiful repertoire you have . My fanaticism about the Beatles would have never dreamed of putting someone in the same sentence for years, until her. And then when I learned how big of an influence they were on her, I thought, no wonder I compared. I've noticed that a lot of people who love Regina also love the Beatles. She has a 'thing' like they do. Of course they don't sound like each other, but they still relate to me. I get affected by both in a similar way. I've tried to figure it out. Couple of things I think are true about it. She approaches music similarly. She treats songs as entities all on their own. She starts and finishes a song as if it's a whole album, a finished piece of art. The Beatles did that. She's multi-genre like they are. She doesn't do concepts and she's not interested in one sound that's in all her music. I guess that's my favorite kind of songwriter. Since that's the way she is, I always thought that she should just release songs one at a time instead of albums. And give each one the same hype as if she put out an album. I mean who made up the has to be an album rule? Someone did? It would go with how she writes better. And she wouldn't have to do this every three year an album thing. Just always be working on one song and when she's done release it, promote it, include it in the next concerts and then go to the next song. No albums, just songs. All her albums sound like collections anyway. It's funny when an album comes out and the critics try to make sense out of the whole album and how each song fits with the others. That is not how she writes. I wish she'd understand that about herself actually. I know that's a bold statement, but it would be innovative. And that sounds like her. And it seems like the pressure would be less and it could be more satisfying. She could mix touring and recording more at the same time instead of having to barrel through each one when it's time for it. Just little bits of touring and little bits of recording and little bits of time off all mixed around together. Sounds more fun and healthier. And how cool to get a surprise new song here and there when your not expecting it. Anyway, sorry Ava, wasn't expecting to go on and on there .

    I've never seen this one before
  24. First concert review from Mexico

    Wow that made me emotional. Mexico loving Regina. Or should I say Ray-gina. Funny what a little tiny female creature can do to a bunch of people. I haven't said it in a while, but she is just so special. And I am so appreciative that it's not just me that gets it. That's what makes me emotional when I hear the cheers in this video. To love Regina is not like people going nutso over some pop music person. She's an acquired taste. Pop music is fun and catchy and I like it here and there, but it's not very intellectual. And I'm not saying music has to be all smart. Fun and dancy and simple is some of my favorite music. But truthfully, that kind of music is in that category and that is fine, but it has no staying power with me. And then there's music that's interesting and art and intelligent and great and you want to know all about the artist and why the words and why the structure of the music and it's like a study. Regina's talent is art put to music. And it is so satisfying.
  25. a new artist doing Regina justice

    yeah, wow. Both of those were really good.
