RJLupin2 reacted to cookieknits in Your Mood in Terms of Regina Songs
I am one of Regina's older fans, about to turn 60 this month (Nov. 21015). Her songs have helped me live through one of the worst things that can happen to anyone, the death of a loved one, in my case my beloved husband five years ago. I can't point to any particular song. It is just her way of looking at life, offbeat, cynical, kind of the way I am when I am emotionally as healthy as I can be. She helped my ground myself. She is not the only artist who assisted me in my journey to wholeness, and I am not there yet, not by a long shot, but Ms. Spektor has been important to me.
RJLupin2 reacted to Rosa! in The New Record
Hello guys...not sure if anyone will remember me, but I used to be active here. Hope you all are doing great. I feel like I've rediscovered Regina! I joined this forum when I was 13...I've now graduated college and for now I'm working at a newspaper, and I decided on a whim to re-listen to 11:11 the other day. Now I'm obsessed with Regina all over again. Whatever she does on this next album, I'm so ready.
RJLupin2 reacted to Universal Edibility in The Complete Spektography: An Update
So I realized that it is probably about time someone revamped the Complete Spektography. By doing so, it will help us all out in the sharing of live recordings.
I have made a very extensive and comprehensive document of all Regina's songs and the shows they were recorded at but there are still many holes to fill!
and here is a version anyone can edit:
It is really a very helpful document, a "guide" to her songs.

RJLupin2 reacted to Justamelodyinquartz in Regina is everywhere
Was listening to Kimya Dawson's Thunder Thighs album, track 6 "Zero Or Zillion sports the following lyrics:
As I sit and listen to a kid you clearly influenced
I text and say I'm glad that you're my friend (yay!)
Then leave another perfect time show, feeling inspired and powerful
"The Ghost of Corporate Future" in my head (my fucking head!)
And as I count the ways that I've said "fuck you" to the man
I don't care who thinks that I've sold out or not
Since going barefoot I feel better
That Regina fucking Spektor is a name I'll never be ashamed to drop (Go Regina!)
I saw that little weirdo walk into the open mic, sit down shyly at the piano and then start (Wow!)
Singing songs we'll start to knowing, silly, sad and so mind blowing
They were undeniably straight from the heart (Right from the heart!)
P.S. I'm new here, is there some sort of an introduction topic? :-)
RJLupin2 got a reaction from Universal Edibility in What would you like to see on the new record?
Oh, you know what, I had seen that! I just associate it with the name Renate Hug, I didn't really realize there was a name for it.
That the lyrics in Apres Moi towards the end are "Stand (stand-ding-dong)". I always thought she said "Stand (Stand-ing tall)."
