  1. Thanks for that. What a great chill out tune.
  2. Why are ppl so closed minded about music?

    I intially started this topic as a rant about ppl wouldnt give regina's music a chance, because they closed off thier minds to whole genres of music. They limited themselves by saying (for example) I like the Strokes and indie rock, and therefore never listen to anything else. Therefore they are being closed minded. It is wrong to say anyone who doesn't like regina is being closed minded (not that anyone has said that). Besides it wouldnt be as fun if regina wasnt just our little secret , although that situation is rapidly changing. PS. Oh cool 1200 ppl have veiwed a thread i started. WOO-HOO
  3. How early have you shown up for shows?

    Just arrive as early as you can - its well worth the sacrifice of your time to get near the front. Your experience will be better the closer you are (although don't worry if you don't manage to get to the front - you'll still have a briliant time )
  4. Regina on Democracy

    I've never heard anyone express their opinions so clearly,so persuasivly and so effortlessly(not even world leaders and politicians). What an amazingly gifted person. The way she pauses to think rather than just blabbing out the first thing that comes into her head is such a quality. There is such a very fine, logical and human reasoning behind every answer. With that sort of expression and reasoning she could be a philosopher, never mind a politician, lawyer etc. etc. Think ourselves lucky regina chose music, for she could have suceeded in many other fields. A truly inspiring person.
  5. A Dilemma

    When I first discovered Regina I didn't realise just how good she actually is. Therefore I bought most of her songs 1 by 1 or in small groups on iTunes. Now I am completely enamored with her music and a massive fan but album-less. Should I go and buy all the albums, or is that a waste of money?
  6. A Dilemma

    'Songs' just arrived this morning - it really is incredibly good. I agree totally about the no frills feel - just her and piano - wonderful!
  7. AUSTIN CITY LIMITS

    Im seriously depressed . I have been looking forward to watching the live stream of this show all day and i just found out it was last sunday
  8. ???anti-regspekt????how can that be...

    quote: Originally posted by PerksOfAWallflower: YEA! the variation and diversity.... name one other artist that can write.. your honor, and hero, and time is all around... SO DIFFERENT>>> ALL SO GREAT! Regina's diversity is definatly one of the things that makes her so great. lol i was trying to introduce one of my friends to regina the other day and he said her music gets a bit samey after a while - UNBELIEVEABLE!!!
  9. In our 6th form we all have to do a 20 min presentation and 15min Q&A on a subject of our choice. So far there have been ones on F1, the Liberal Democrats, Pokemon, Athletics and David Hasselhoff (an interesting mix!). A presentation on Regina and her music be good, wouldn't it? I was just posting so anyone could offer suggestions for my presentation. I was thinking of doing a brief biography, playing a few snippets of her songs and maybe explaining the influences and various styles, but after that im a bit stuck. Any help would be great! Thanks.
  10. Thanks for the advise! They're great things to discuss. I love this place - ppl going out their way just to help out Thanks again PS. I hope i didn't sound hesistant - im looking forward to spreading the word
  11. A Dilemma

    no i took the CD player back to Comet and they gave me another as it wasn't loading CDs. The CD player was still in its warrenty so they just handed over another CD player
  12. Why are ppl so closed minded about music?

    Yeah, simple is often good, although Regina's music certainly isn't simple (in my opinion). The piano parts in The Flowers and Apres Moi especially are REALLY hard and complicated, but none of her songs are 'simple' or 'easy'. You're friend must be amazing at the piano! Regina does so much with her voice aswell - maybe complicated piano melodies would make the music seem a bit crowded (although im sure Regina would find a way to pull it off ). Anyway, I think everyone agrees (on this forum) that the way Regina's music is, is perfect, and thats all that matters!
  13. A Dilemma

    nah i just took it back to Comet and they gave me another lol
  14. A Dilemma

    How's this for bad luck! SK just arrives (great case and booklet ) and i put the CD in the Hi-Fi system in my room. I turn it on and there's this horrible whirring/grinding noise in the backround and the tracks randomly stop every now and again. I tried it on the PC and it works just fine. Oh well .
  15. A Dilemma

    Thanks andreseng. Its ridiculous that iTunes asks you to back up onto CDs - the whole point of iTunes is you dont't have to pay for CD's. Anyway, this is the first i heard of backing up on the net, but its really useful! Thanks again. quote: Originally posted by morricone1900: it's so, um....basic and indie-ish and endearing in its simplicity of packaging Now im really desperate for the Songs CD to arrive!

  17. A Dilemma

    Yeah, I agree. Its far nicer to have an actual CD which you can play in your car, on your hi-fi etc. and comes with a booklet and case. Also its easy to lose your music with iTunes if your PC crashes (as mine did a few years ago) which is really upsetting and pricy. CD's arn't even much more expensive (esp. on the net) so im definatly going to start buying CD's again. PS. Ive already ordered Songs, Soviet Kitsch and BTH (hope they arrive soon)
  18. Liverpool Academy 4th Sept 2007

    Good to hear from you Senza. Good luck!
  19. Liverpool Academy 4th Sept 2007

    I really hope Senza comes back with that audio recording (and those pics). It would mean so much to me to have the show on CD and on my iPod. If anyone else could help, by uploading an audio recording of the show, I'd be massivly greatful.
  20. Birmingham Academy show anyone?

    At the Liverpool and London gigs the support act was Eugene McGuinness. He played the guitar and sung. If that sounds anything like him he has a myspace and a few songs on iTunes. Good luck.
  21. A Dilemma

    I just went uptown to the local Virgin Megastores branch, to buy some of Regina's CDs. I actually couldn't believe it when I found out they don't sell any of her music! No wonder high street music stores are losing out to the internet. Amazon here I come.
  22. A Dilemma

    lol I won't be eating her albums or show tickets, "but hey, to each his own-n-n-n" .
  23. A Dilemma

    Aww thanks for the advice. I'll definatly go buy them now. I kinda wanted to anyway but thought i might be being a bit wasteful - but im definatly not - I'm "investing in Regina" lol

  25. regina spektor sheet music!

    Yeah, it would be great if they sold an official music book for Regina's best tunes (or even better one for each of her albums). I know there's loads of free stuff on that yahoo group thingy, but it would be really cool to have an official version of each song, and a nice book with them all in. I'm sure there would be plenty of demand. Right now I have sheets of music lying all over my house and about 4 copies of Better lol.
