  1. poetry anyone???

    In Comparison The images surround me. Like Greek statues, they are perfect, And they make me seem a shadow, barely human, and I expect They were put here just to taunt me, make me grasp at what I can’t be, Put a mirror up to nature. I lament at what is not me And linger on potential and the sign-posted mistakes That brought me to this moment: errors only a fool makes, Like mines I stumbled onto with my careless, clumsy feet, While everyone around me trod through on paths like straight streets. “Watch them, ugly duckling, watch the sleek, smooth swans, Paddling their dainty feet through flawless, sparkling ponds… And what a shame you’re still struggling through the marshland, Longing to be them, well, let me take your hand, And whisper the truth to you: it’s just your stupid luck That you are not a cygnet. You’ll become an ugly duck, And stay here in the swamp where you belong, I’m telling you the fairytale is wrong.” I say it to myself all the time. Still it won’t sink in That I am never going to change and no amount of blinking Will change the facts that sit before my eyes: The only thing that dirt attracts is flies. So show me beauty and I’ll train myself not to care, Shrug my shoulders in time with the flicking of smooth hair, I’d display a better facet, show my good side if I had one, But they’re all perfect and I’m nothing in comparison.
  2. Happy New Year 2008

    Happy New Year (I nearly wrote Happy Birthday there for some reason) to all my fellow Regina "Human of the Year" Spektor fans. Actually, Regina is "Human of Every Year" but especially this year when I saw her LIVE IN CONCERT woot!

I was going to make a joke about there being a Jew constellation but then I decided not too in case I ever make a typo haha. Oh I'm just cruel.
  4. Yes!

    Wow Sara Bareilles and Regina at the same concert would be awesome
  5. Feel Good Songs

    Walking On Sunshine by Katrina and the Waves, and Send Me On My Way by Rusted Root are both great feel-good songs.
  6. regina lyric chain game!

  8. Regina is everywhere

    Recently "Fidelity" was played in the Co-op near my school and the whole "Begin To Hope" album was played while I was in a Virgin Megastore. Of course, I stood around revelling in it for as long as possible.
  9. dusseldorf interpretations

    I believe it's muttdom too. It's contrasted with her "New York nothing", as in she has varied family roots (as Johnny C said) in Russia, and nothing of that kind in New York.
  10. Tears and Regina

    Just some of her songs are so emotional, definitely. Samson, the bit where she sings "We couldn't bring the columns down, yeah we couldn't destroy a single one" always gets to me for some unknown reason. The whole of Braille is very sad, and just beautiful too. Human of the Year. Somedays. Rockland County.
  11. Please help me find some songs? :)

    quote: Originally posted by pigeonfactory: Yes I looked on both of those websites, as for ReSpekt online, the live songs will not work on my computer, at all. They didn't work on my old computer, either. I got all the demo/studio stuff. And I thought six-58 stuff was all broken? With feeling, thank you so so so so much. I lovvee these songs! Thank you thank you thank you!!!! Aww, it's not a problem. I'm really glad you enjoy all the music. Should keep you busy for a while .
  12. Please help me find some songs? :)

    I have sent pigeonfactory all the songs requested. Does anyone else want any of the ones on that list?
  13. Please help me find some songs? :)

    I've sent everything up to "I Cut Off My Hair" to you, pigeonfactory. I'll send the others tomorrow.
  14. Please help me find some songs? :)

    If you'd like, I could email you the majority of those songs. If you post your email address, I'll be able to send them to you. However, I don't have... Chicken Song Cinderella Devil Come To Bethlehem Love, You’re a Whore School is out Two Sisters I have all the others though... By the way, if anyone has (any of) the above ones I don't, would you be able to email them to me? My address is ifihadahammer@gmail.com
  15. Your favorite movies?

    Pan's Labyrinth! One of the best films ever for sure. Plus Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Amélie, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Corpse Bride, Sleepy Hollow, Hot Fuzz... You people seem to have very good taste, I must say.
  16. http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.vi...79-9687-578f2a757bb2 Voice on Tape - the original - can be found on that page (Jenny Owen Youngs' myspace page).
  17. I have Jenny Owen Youngs' version of it. Which is good... I didn't realise Regina had covered it. Or has she? Am I just getting confused? After all, the original song does have Regina's voice in it as an answer phone message...
  18. Meaningful Regina Lyrics

    "And then you take that love you made and stick it into some... someone else's heart pumping someone else's blood, and walking arm in arm you hope it don't get harmed, but even if it does you'll just do it all again" "Everyone inside the mechanism is yearning to get out... and sing another melody completely, so different from the one they're always singing" "Say it in your mind until you know that the words are right... this is why we fight" "She was lying on the floor and counting stretchmarks"
  19. ingrid michaelson

    She doesn't remind me of Regina but her music is good. She has good lyrics, definitely. I'd heard of her before this thread - maybe someone with a fresh point of view could tell us if they can hear any similarities with Regina?
  20. poetry anyone???

    I Owe Me It’s hard to even like myself when I’m being like this, The doctors won’t tell me but I know the diagnosis, All the symptoms built up and became too clear to ignore, Total loss of self-confidence brought me below the floor, And no matter how hard I push I’m still stuck beneath the tiles, I remember how this all began: compliments just produced bile, Every flattery was painted false by my paranoia, Condemned to solitary confinement by the strictest lawyer To ever grace the courtroom: my pitiful self-esteem, I’m the only cat in history to refuse to eat the cream That the world placed in front of me. I just let it go sour. I simply left myself to wilt: a self-destructive flower. My body is a temple that I helped to desecrate, I fished around for happiness but made myself the bait, So everything I caught I threw straight back, No good moments were long enough. I let the line go slack, I know in the far caverns of my mind dreams don’t come true But still I’ve addressed to myself a pile of IOUs, So many things I would have done if I thought I deserved to, But I put up these barriers that I now can’t get through And stopped myself from progressing with this wall of doubt, I’m the tick beneath my skin that I cannot scratch out, You’re not the one holding me back: that’s where all my strength goes, My own dreaded opponent, I cower from my own blows. So why do I do this to myself? I could hold my head high, If I could block out the sound of my own sarcastic sigh, Which drags me back each time I get past the starting line, How ironic is it that without me I would be fine?
  21. if you HAD to...

    Let's see... Baby Jesus Human of the Year One More Time With Feeling Folding Chair All the Rowboats Bartender Pound of Flesh December Mermaid Hallelujah (what a brilliant cover of an excellent song)

    http://music.guardian.co.uk/live/story/0,,2166487,00.html The Guardian review of Friday is above.

    He has a slightly odd voice but his lyrics are good. I liked him too. He's on Myspace - http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.vi...le&friendid=48492212 - if anyone wants to check him out further, although all the songs on there are ones he played on Friday.

    Adding to the setlist TimGuy posted (wow, you have such a good memory!), the two you didn't recognise were Man of a Thousand Faces and One More Time With Feeling.

    I don't have any of the things in the thread title but I loved Regina's set last night. What a great setlist! I know she started with Ain't No Cover and ended with Samson and most of the songs inbetween but I'm not sure of the order so I'll wait for someone to post a more official and complete list . Can't wait to see the stuff you're going to upload, creamcrackers. .
