  1. Thanks, Can you tell me where is broken ?
  2. my interpretation of Hero (:

    I don't remember the lyrics Can you post here, so we can comment? (btw, forgive me for the rudeness, but i think that as a matter of fact interpreting a lyric and figuring only _ONE_ exact meaning is a little....quirky, music act as life, talks as life, and not as a novel or a "philosophy cookbook")
  3. I'm very curious about the upcoming events... Begin to hope despite the superficial criticism is a great album that does not denaturate the artist highlights but simply has and expanded instruments and timbric set of Regina music, we've seen only a bit of the iceberg that's now underwater... Begin to Hope seems to me (maybe i'm wrong) the opera of a music talent that for the first time had ever used synths, vocal & instrumental textures, electro drums (or "groove agents ") , the maybe first rendezvous between Regina and things like Cubase and a digital studio arrangment, especially for Fidelity, On The Radio, Edit, Apres Moi (this maybe has too much additions) I like very much another artist: Enya , Irish, from a folk-music-band-family, classical trained and pianist as Regina, but the big difference (beside the musical styles performed, Enya is more into classical, celtic, irish-folk) was the early approach that Enya had with sequencer and strange effects like multi-layered vocals (in one song she uses 300 vocal layer slightly time-shifted) Will be great to see (egh, listen) Regina experiment with such things, experiment with a pop-like band (as in Better, On The Radio live version), experiment with a classical orchestra... She is not confined to a single musical genre, seems that she has something to do with the whole music. RespeKt!
  4. Thanks for your reply Maybe it's the same old sod, but we (I,atleast) haven't found a solution already I'm not playing the same old "getting in love with the singer/etc" My toughs are almost related to the frustration that i cannot talk to her, express my feelings on her work, let her explain me some choiches of lyrics and music arrangment, etc.. I think aside music Regina is a smart mind, unique in such ways, and i hate the fact that i miss a friend like her, not anymore else. It's not an Awe for her, is such a different thing, i almost cannot explain well. p.s. Happy 2007 ! :-)
  5. Google Trends is in early stage, some cities and regions information maybe inaccurate, but, despite the beta version of the service, i think that the graph with search amount over time is pretty correct (100 % google internal data) Anyway, it's not a news that Reg is popoular in northern european countries, the problems is that she surely not think will be a great idea come here in Italy, on in Spain (she did 1 or two shows in Madrid, i think)
  6. take a look at this http://www.google.com/trends?q=regina+spektor&ctab=2&geo=all&date=all This is google trends, with a breakdown from 2004 of search words "regina" AND "spektor", no need of a statistic engineer to say that Reg is gaining popularity at a very strong rate (2x monthly basis, i think) What that means?.... that i've never been at one of Regina's live (i'm Italian) and i fear when that will happen (soon) i will only see her like a distant point in the skyline of a immense hall... Egh, just re-read what i've written above, and i imaginated if ever she reads something like that, she may think ..."what the hell he wants? i write and sing to let people know, listen, last time two months on the road, almost finally had the opportunity to make a major work with proper studio recording and time dedicated and....those people finds everytime something that doesn't go well" The problem is that Regina is HER music, despite the things about stories and such works not being so personal, when someone listens to her, it's impossibile not to feel the personality of who has written and who's singing, and the worst is that is a great personality, captivating, unique, a secret door to a reginadimension full of new. Maybe it's something only related to my perception but....she is so smiling, so funny, so intense, so true....it's almost an addiction problem to me, and i'm not the kind of person that goes to concerts and yells all the time "reg i love you!!!" or "you're awesome!!", doesn't add nothing to her. Forgive me for this selfish toughs, and especially forgive me for my english not so well formed i think. Bye!

  8. Tears and Regina

    I'm Italian, i have an average knowledge of English but i'm not capable of guessing lyrics at the first run. When i listened "Braille" for the first time... was an unique experience.. i almost tried not to get involved for 10 seconds, the rest of the song was an ocean of emotions that invested me in such a powerful way The question is that i got more than a tear or two, and figured the sense of the song perfectly even without fully understanding the lyrics, when i decided to read the text, i was shocked, almost everything i was reading was figured in my mind, as if i understood every word.
  9. Blue Lips

    First, Hello to everyone, i'm new here "Blue Lips" I think this song in somewhat genial and deserves, at least a studio recording or better EITHER a studio recording and a new major arrangment,but the only version i have is from a live in London The song has not been included in latest album, nor in the attached EP for the extended version So, i guess if someone share the same feelings and thinks that "Blue Lips" is a masterpiece, maybe we could find a way to let her know, and maybe even she will bring the track to studio in the future. What do you think? Byez,
