  1. Human of the Year One More Time With Feeling Small Town Moon Folding Chair
  2. With the popularity of Mamma Mia and such, I wouldn't be surprised if this gets made in a few years. I mean with all the amazing characters and worlds Regina has created through her music, a very cool story connecting various songs could be created. What do you guys think?
  3. Ok... the best Regina song evah is....

    It's none of those, actually it's The Virgin Queen!
  4. Far "Purists vs Non-Purists"

    ...The computer drums do work on Machine and Dance Anthem, though considering the subtext of both these songs. On BTH, the computer drums are way more subtle, and are only really dominant in two or three songs. They don't really get in the way as they do on certain Far tracks. To be honest, I think BTH was a stronger album production-wise, though some of the songs on Far are stronger than those on BTH.
  5. Profanity/Vulgarity

    Haha, I love that word, it's one of the funniest insults ever. My favorite cuss expression in Spanish is "Me cago en la leche" which literally means "I shit on the milk". You use it when you're angry about something.
  6. Reg's true voice

    Her voice has definitely become crisper and clearer, probably as a result of having quit smoking.
  7. Apple Store NYC 24 Jul 2009

    The new song is awesome.

  10. Far "Purists vs Non-Purists"

    The song sounds like it's been grated through Microsoft Songsmith, it's just so cheesy! Maybe if they had used real drums instead of fake computer drums, it would sound better (like on recent live versions)
  11. So which is your #1 song on Far?

    New: Machine Old: Genius Next Door

You really have to consider the source I guess. Just one extra reason for me not to listen to Fall Out Boy ever.. Emo crap like FOB makes ME want to shove pencils in my ears. Seriously, Regina has a thousand times more talent than the member of every stupid emo band combined.
  13. Far "Purists vs Non-Purists"

    The whole album is great, except for Folding Chair which was a MASSIVE disappointment, IMO. Dance Anthem, Genius, HOTY, The Wallet, MOATF, all sound awesome in my view, even OMTWF and Blue Lips sound great despite not being what I expected, but Folding Chair just sounds...wrong, for some reason.

    I absolutely love this song, does anyone else? Regina should start playing this again!

    The melody of the song is perfect!
  17. Regina does Glastonbury

    Blur are awesome! BTW, I'm streaming her Glastonbury set right now and it's amazing, you can just tell from the audio that the crowd loved her.
  18. Least favorite Regina Song?

    December
  19. Review of "Far"

    NME review: http://www.nme.com/reviews/regina-spector/10606 A bit on the negative side, sadly, but it praises all the best parts of the album
  20. Patron Saint

    I absolutely love this song, does anyone else? Regina should start playing this again!
  21. Mary Ann

    Mary Ann in Sailor Song refers to the sea. In Italian the word for sea is 'mare' which could sort of sounds like Mary, and the sea is unpredictable and annoying, in other words, a bitch. I think the line about kissing you till your lips bleed sorta gives it away. The sea is being personified as a woman in the song.
  22. Far mainstream acceptance

    Might be on RespektOnline...
  23. Good questions for Regina

    If you weren't a musician, which job would you like to have and why? Out of all the characters you have created in your songs, who is your favorite?
  24. Most Interesting Vocals/Quirks

    Yeah, the trumpet noises she does! I love them Also: Suh-suh suh style in Chemo Limo
