  1. Regina's New Song - The Call

    So, I was aware that Regina had a new song in the new Narnia movie. But I was not aware how AWESOME it was. Anyone else have this same experience? It is available on iTunes, but you have to get the entire CD to get the one song. So I listened to the 30 second preview and I thought it was "Good". But I went to the movie, and at the end it starts to play... And the lyrics mean so much more and it is just... SO GOOD! oh man, I was so impressed with it. Way to go, Regina! The one song is totally worth the $10 of the CD (which isn't bad, anyway...)

  4. Man of a Thousand Faces

    Okay, so I'm really liking this song "Man of a Thousand Faces" but I am having an issue. I'm trying to figure out what the lyrics mean. I keep thinking that it has to do with drugs of some kind, but I'm wondering what everyone else thinks. The lyrics are below, and I made the sections that I made some drug-related areas bold. ALSO: I made a portion of the song into italics. This section is particularly baffling to me. I know that songs don't have one meaning or anything, I'm just wondering what your thoughts are. The man of a thousand faces Sits down at the table Eats a small lump of sugar And smiles at the moon like he knows her He begins his quiet ascension Without anyone's steady instruction To a place with no religion He's found a path to her likeness His words are quiet like stains are On a tablecloth washed in a river Stains that are trying to cover For each other Or at least blend in with the pattern Good is better than perfect Scrub till your fingers are bleeding And I’m crying with insight I tell others to do without crying He used to go to his favorite bookstores And rip out his favorite pages And stuff 'em into his breast pockets The moon, to him, was a stranger And now he sits down at a table Without anyone's steady instruction Begins his quiet ascension To a place with no religion He's found a path to her likeness He eats a small lump of sugar Smiles at the moon like he knows her

  6. Entertainment Weekly reviews "Instant Karma"

    As you all must know, the CD "Instant Karma: The Amnesty International Campaign to Save Darfur" features a lovely rendition of the Lennon tune "Real Love" sung by our very own Regina! Entertainment Weekly reviewed the CD and had quite a lot to say about Regina! Here's the Spektor portion of the review. (It's even the last paragraph! Great finisher!) "Regina Spektor's "Real Love" outstrips the modest original - blasphemous as that is to say - by introducing rich undercurrents. Her nearly classical piano arrangement adds a run of fearsome, dark chords around the "No need to be afraid" section, so that when she breaks into the chorus' tender promise, it's a fantastic sunburst. I've never been a huge Spektor booster before, but for these three minutes and 56 seconds, she's my new American Idol." - Chris Willman (Entertainment Weekly) Of the 23 tracks on the CD, "Real Love" was the one song given the honor of being the "Download This" song. So yay!! It really is an amazing song. GREAT job, Regina! I hope this is news to some of you.
