  1. I just watched the first two episodes of the show Kings on NBC (loving it by the way) and noticed they featured Liszt's "Un Sospiro" (Etude No. 39) prominently during the episodes. Listening to the piece really mad me think of Regina's tune "Aquarius". Maybe I am just crazy, but please let me know if anyone else hears the similarities in the music. . Aquarius is one of my FAVORITE Regina songs, and invoking the feelings it has for me during the show made the whole thing even more emotional. . Un sospiro http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qv8usba3Isw Aquarius . Not that I need to tell any of you that

  3. 1999 demo tape

    Vanessa Carlton owns you all. "oooooo look at me, I have 3445596078678 milllion posts on the Regirna forum, i have a really cool Quote from a Regina Spektor Song as my signatue, and I was into her before she toured with the strokes, get off my forum" . . you da Man Kulp.
  4. 1999 demo tape

    I've been reading up on all the brumstick chatter I missed in my hiatus. This one is the most juicy. . (as usual, I will tirade against the general consensus of the group) . Peter pan, I highly recommend you post the tracks online for us to enjoy. Regina has often stated that she does not think the world of 11:11, but if her life was shifted forward a few years and 11:11 was the demo tape in question with unheard tracks, I would def' want to hear that tape. A few years from now, she might not look to kindly on Songs either, considering it an immature piece of work, and not want people to hear it. . Anyone who takes the time to read this massive thread and seek out the link to an obscure demo tape won't judge the songs too harshly. . I understand not wanting to go against Regina’s wishes, having met her myself and falling under her spell, I would probably do anything she asked of me. This isn’t a big deal though, artists have unpolished material leaked all the time, and it usually does not hurt them, but only makes their fan base more excited and ravenous. . After all this isn't a photo gallery of Fergie peeing her pants at a concert, It's a tape we can all only imagine is amazing (and most likely is)
  5. Covers that truly changed the original

    i am removing the post that used to be here because it caused the commentor below to trash the righteous bros. most amazing song.... "unchained melody". and even though i stand by my beliefs....if it causes this kind of mudslinging,,,,i must remove my post
  6. Instant Karma CD - Tracklisting

    the postal service cover of grow old with me has actually been around for at least a couple years now. Its a great cover.
  7. Letterman Performance

    HAHAHHA . "still making Clinton jokes" , Good one . . (see its funny cause even in 2007 he still makes clinton jokes that are at least 13 years old. All part of the intentionally cheezy monologue)
  8. Regina at Longwood University tonight

  9. Regina at Longwood University tonight

  10. Regina Live at her Alma Mater, SUNY Purchase (NY) - Complete Concert

    Mark C........i know i might not be the best guy to say this.............but your website about puzzles and shit...is maybe the creepiest website i can imagine for an adult male to have....i mean seriously....i giant wierd puzzle website.....man....... . but i do appreciate you hosting the songs.....you're a great man...... . . Ok EDIT.........Mark...you and puzzles are the coolest thing ever....i mean like cooler than Andrew "Dice" Clay...i am listenign to this SUNY show....and i am blown away by Regina. I have not heard her sound this good and passionate in a long time......maybe not having a band dragging her down is whats doing the trick....(actually i am certian of it). . in any case.....all these songs are amazinggly good....best version of a few of em i have. .. oh and on the subject of "Real Love"...Regina crushes the 90's reworking of the song by the beatles. i have nto heard the original demo tapes....but i am not a fan of the overall production aspects. . . yup thats right i said it.....Regina is better than the Beatles......and since the beatles were bigger than Jesus....i guess by default....Regina is bigger than Jesus. . . Hurray
  11. um.. is regina anti vegan?

    On Regina's turn ons ___________ vegan(s) giant plastic ice cream cones America(ns)(NYC) Judiasm Religious tolerance Soup people sining along with her at concerts the Simpsons Wes Anderson films TURN OFFS __________________ President Bush. a small, limited, and ignorant view of artistic and musical expression by the critical world. Too many trivial and pointless questions about her personal life. people taking flash photographs while she is playing concerts driving hmmm(she don't really mention what she does not like....in her songs or interviews.....guess she is just such a positive thinker) . as i compile this list i realize i may not be a perfect kindred spiritual match for Regina. (hate vegans plastice ice cream cones, love our Prez.)...oh well opposites attract.
