  1. Regina's Adorable Mess Ups...

    http://youtube.com/watch?v=FK7ytyugE6w Here's a video where she continually messes up on 'That Time'. God, stuff like this makes me love her even more. I love how she just embraces her humanness. She's always like, "Fuck, I ALWAYS mess up at least ONE song during a show..." Even though she IS a musical genius, she is not afraid to admit when she doesn't know something...which I feel is the KEY to learning and growing. I look up to her so much for this! If only I could learn to not feel like I always have to KNOW everything...It's gotta be such a relief to know that you don't have to know everything in the world and that it's OKAY to admit when you don't know something...In fact, better, than if you just stand there nodding your head PRETENDING like you know what someone's talking about...
  2. Artists resembling Regina...

    So, since I was previously OBSESSED (to, what i think, was an unhealthy level) with regina...and ONLY listened to her music...i am now...open...to other artists. however... well, there's just no one that seems to even compare. some come close. i love kate nash. (even though, it seems like there are a lot more people that hate her than like her...which i don't get...) but one of the critics is just that she copies regina. i kinda have mixed feelings about it. well, for one, i think it's good to have artists that INFLUENCE you. but on the other hand, you can't be a copy of another artist. i don't think kate is a COPY but she sounds an awful lot like her. today i was listening to "skeleton song" by kate nash and there's this part at the end...and she sounds EXXAACCTTLLYYY like regina. i was having regina flashbacks. it was weird. but i do want to find other musical geniuses.... i love anything with a piano and weird lyrics. that's pretty much my taste. ha. so... any suggestions??
  3. Songs Yet To Download...

    GRAR! I seriously thought I knew every Regina song known to man kind; turns out, I was entirely WRONG WRONG WRONG. (On the plus side, it IS exciting that Regina is practically approaching 150 or so songs...) I have yet to download 21 more...But...I'm pretty sure not all of these are 'available?' but still. I know some of these are. If ANYONE knows ANY information, even just about 1 SONG, of how I could possibly download it...Ah, I'd love you forever... I'm still in need of downloading: All is Love Bear Spektor Be Like A Cloud By The Time You Read This Letter Dead Rat Dulce et Decorum est Pro Patria Mori Film Score Project Halikha LeKesariya Human of the Year In the Studio Little Boxes Love, You're a Whore Man of a Thousand Faces My Man Oh, Marcello!

  4. friends and odd music?? eeeh

    k, so... tonight i was with my best friend and i was showing her my music. and i began to think, y'know...i think the kind of music i love is more of a solitary enjoyment. b/c the music i like.... is like...regina, kate nash, imogen heap....etc. artists that aren't the norm. and they aren't all upbeat and happy all the time either. a lot are really emotional and just...moving. i always want people in my life to enjoy the music i do, but when they listen...ha, i can tell they're just listening w/ me b/c they know that IIIII like it. just to be nice. but eeehh idk. maybe the kind of music i like is meant for my own healing of spirit or something?? it always calms me and makes me appreciate life. but it's not really something that i do when i am with friends. pop and dance music is more...friend-ish...y'know i don't even know why i'm posting this i just want some opinions on your friends and your different taste in music??
  5. music connected to bad memories

    ok, so, most of you know, when i reaaaaaaaalllllllllllyyyy got into regina....i was struggling deeply with an eating disorder and depression FROM the eating disorder. worstttttt time in my life. so..... considering i listened to regina 24/7...... while i was in that horrible time.... now, when i listen to her music... it brings back those memories of how sad i was. i'll listen to a song like 'oedipus' or 'carbon monoxide' that are supposed to be beautiful and all i wanna do is turn them off because they make me sad (b/c they are connected to the times when i used to use those songs to help get me through the day...) majority of her songs are more slow and moving....and those r the ones that helped me cope. i freaking love regina and i don't want to lose interest. it's just this dumb memory thing. music connected to the bad times....eh ...what's a girl to do...
  6. I'm odd. But I need Regina Downloads.

    Okay, so... Yeah. I went through this phase after coming back from Remuda (the treatment center) where I was just like, wow. I can't believe I was so obsessed with Regina Spektor. That's crazy and insane and just plain weird. So... I deleted all of my songs that couldn't normally be found and kept only the ones that were on her albums that were released. Well, that was stupid. And... I miss those songs dearly. I went back to get the songs from where I got them before, and...they don't work. So now I'm missing a bajillion songs that I used to love. The thing is, I really wish that everyone had access to all of these songs. You know how we have the Spektography? I wish that there was a Spektography that was all links to download the songs. I would like to make one if I could, but I'm not that technically...eh...advanced. There are too many songs that I need for me to just put in a list...But it's basically the ones that aren't on her albums. I used to have EVERY SINGLE SONG and I miss them lots. Now, I want to have all her songs... And be able to share them with other people. Is anyone on here capable of making a list like that? With all links to where the songs can be downloaded? If not, If you just have a couple of links to some songs, I would LOVE it if you could please post them! I'm in need! Why did I ever delete those... Ha. I'm so indecisive sometimes.

  10. Does ANYONE have these songs?

    Yeah, so I don't like to be one of these people whose all like "send me these files" and what not. But I've searched and searched on the find button...And I can't find these songs. And if I do find them, the link to download has already expired. And I know they're out there because I've had them before, but I can't find them in an mp3 to download. Are some of these unavailable? Modern Girls and Old Fashion Men (Featuring the Strokes) The Big Towns The Floor Heard Everything Voice On Tape (for Jenny Owen Youngs) Woolen Gloves That's all I have left.

Thank you SO much tearose. And thank you Em Mitchell for your suggestion as well!
  12. Is Regina a good cat name???

    quote: Originally posted by PerksOfAWallflower: quote: Originally posted by Dominic: Or Oedipus, Mary Ann, Elvis, Barbara all Regina associated names going with this theme i think Sophie is an adorable name. sophie is my cat's name. and eh, i don't like it. i like odd names. i like the idea of naming the cat something off of a regina song. like... bugsy (from the soup) ahahah. but that sounds like a rabbit...hm
  13. Six Thoughts...

    Aw, Sugardrive...Wedding! Congratulations. 1. I've started taking ADHD medicine that is making it hard for me to eat. I'm not sure which I'm willing to sacrifice: my appetite or my attention span. :/ 2. I wish I was a morning person. 3. I've been paying way too much attention to my/other people's collar bones. 4. I'm sick and tired of wearing these freaking glasses. I hope my eye is healed by MONDAY. 5. I want to meet my husband in college. But I have a feeling my life isn't going to work out in this perfect little box like I want it to.

  16. a place to ask questions about reg lyrics.

    quote: Originally posted by dentistgirl: This a probably a really stupid question, but it's been bugging me that I just don't get what's so funny. When she sings mermaid, everyone laughs about this: I have sold my voice for a bottle of gin cause I can't swim and I sure don't want to float WHY? i always thought they laughed b/c of the way she sang the lyrics. BOH-ULL o' GIN and then she's like .......floooat ha idk how to type it but she says it cute and in a higher tone ....i would have laughed if i had been there just b/c i think people laugh just...because. they just.... laugh b/c they're having a good time and... idk? i do it all the time. laugh at stuff that's not funny. ha.
  17. a place to ask questions about reg lyrics.

    quote: Originally posted by PerksOfAWallflower: since she says "it made me miss my moscow mother" i was thinking more along the lines of.. she didnt really have anyone to miss "from" new york persay, but still misses it. its probly wrong but thats how i always thought. that's ALWAYS what i thought. she is having such a good time in all of these foreign places with the people that she loves and she's so carried away with it that she doesn't care to go back home at the time. it doesn't mean that she doesn't love ny (b/c it's quite the opposite, actually) but it's kinda like when you go on vacation....and you're sooooo loving the atmosphere that you're in that you 'never wanna go home'...but, of course, you love where you're from at the same time.
  18. the virgin queen lyrics

    I seriously think the part that seems like just random consonants and vowels thrown together (or some would call it mumbling) is just another one of her unique noises...kinda like the noises she makes in 20 years of snow. I love her but I don't think that she intentionally did something backwards. But....it sounds amazing. Esp. the backwards one!!

    Oh... Much easier than I thought. And I've learned that before... I just have short-term memory. Ha. Thanksss!
  21. I'm odd. But I need Regina Downloads.

    Okay, well this might be a stupid queestion... But when I go there...it just allows me to PLAY the song. I want to DOWNLOAD it. I right clicked and it said in order for me to save it, I had to get a PRO Windows Media Player account that costs $30. ...........?

  23. I'm back with UPDATES! :)

    Okay, so I don't know a lot of you since I haven't been on here in a while. But for those of you who do remember me, breathableagain, I'm back for an update. Well, before I get started on the Regina stuff, after I came back from treatment for my eating disorder, I came and wrote how well I was doing. I'm still doing great with all of that and I feel totally 100% recovered. It's crazy to be able to say that. I owe it all to the one and only Jesus Christ. He gave me a completely new mindset...I can't even BEGIN to explain how different I think now than I did before! I made a video about my recovery...at the beginning, it shows pictures of what i used to look like and the song goes with the music...then it shows me now and my recovery and it's justttt...well, you just have to watch it! it sends a really good message. You can see it at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rBwWDcT8ATU Okay, so, on to Regina! I went to her concert in Houston. Well, she forgot the lyrics to 'Poor Little Rich Boy' and she asked for the audience to volunteer someone to say it. And...guess who got to tell her the lyrics? ME! She walked up to the front of the stage and I tried to yell it to her...but she didn't hear me clearly. But I was so...hmm...what's the word. It's like, when you see your crush. Only, Regina isn't my crush. Ha. But it was that feeling! I was just like, AAAAAH! *Blush blush blush blush blush* times a million. Best moment of all time. The WHOLE thing where she messes up and curses and all of that good stuff...can be seen here: It's a GREAT video!!! Hope y'all enjoy.... Loooveee, Kelley
  24. Artists resembling Regina...

    thank you so much guys! i also like... imogen heap. she doesn't have piano, but...idk, her music is just weird. and i like her style. also i love feist. (also without piano). but generally...i do like piano the most. but i guess anything weird. haha. and i guess since it's considered weird, and i think it's just normal, when i tell my family + friends about the music...and i'm like OMGOSH YOU HAVE TO HEAR THIS SONG...BEST SONG IN THE WORLDDDDD EEVVVEEERR! they'll be like.... eeehh, it's ok... and i'm like ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? lol. i think i have good taste in music. other people just wanna listen to, you know, the regular pop stuff (which is ok at times...for dancing or whatever...ocassically i'll blast a little spice girls for good memories sake) butttt i just mean, people just want to listen to what everyone else listens to. it's dumbbb. and now a days (hope i'm not offending anyone with this) a lot of people, especially in my generation...are into screamo. i hate it. i tried to like it whenever i was in a depressed state of mind..b/c it was all dark and blah...but...no. it just sounds demonic to me..even though i know it isn't. one of my best friends who is a strong christian LOVES screamo and she's very "scene" as people like to call it. but yeah, i just don't see the big thing with that. i hate screamo.
  25. music connected to bad memories

    Wow...that's so true. Make new memories! I've already started doing it. Like I make myself still listen to her...and it gets easier. My little sister has autism and her favorite thing to do is let me drive her around in my car and listen to music. I just got an ipod thingy for my car...so I've been listening to Regina with her (and she likes it! yay.) but I love to see her smile and rock back and forth to the music and it just makes me really happy. So that'll be the start of my new memories! GREAT suggestion!
