Ah, awards bring out the hipsters in some fans, I see. Well, more power to her, at least she's getting some recognition.

    "In the distance I hear Shakespeare mumbling." - The Virgin Queen (another underrated song!) ---- You who blame the ones close to mortality of failure to tell the truth, could not distinguish crocodile tears from genuine tears. (this might be tough, so I'll give a hint: it's a live-only song.)

    Is it, "How can I forget your love?" from How? (And yes, 100th post party please! ) In case I got that right... "I am bringing with me an instrument of cutlery to leaves of paper bound together of which I claim ownership to."

    Bumping because THIS IS A GLORIOUS THREAD. And a glorious game to boot. quote: Originally posted by Kateateyou:He never accepted your apology, he's so ill-natured.

  11. misheard lyrics

    quote: Originally posted by TC: Another much more recent example is from Oh, Marcello. I had always heard "una villa," which I had assumed meant "a village" in Italian or something. It made sense to me, considering that the song is, at its surface, about a woman worrying about her child becoming a killer and it reminded me of the phrase "It takes a village [to raise a child]." Hence una villa = a village. But it's actually una mille and that's just much more confusing IMHO. I actually thought that part was "mama mia", but Regina was playing around with its pronunciation. Really interesting to know what it really was!
  12. Mortality.

    Lately, a few relatives/friends seem to come down with cancer. Even people I don't know, too. It gets you thinking, really-- when are you going to have your brush with mortality?
  13. Artist's/Writer's block.

    quote: Originally posted by Be like the water, people.: ^^i wish i could flip that "crunch time" switch every time i go to work! Maybe it's like adrenaline: it boosts your performance, but if you had it all the time, you'd die ... or maybe lol anyway, good luck!! Get to work! I wish I had a "crunch time" switch in handy. I seem to be very lax when it comes to working on stuff; maybe that's why I get these stumbling blocks. Also, I might try different ways of working at things--maybe different environment or times? But it's worth a shot.
  14. Jessica {WWSFTCS}

    quote: Originally posted by Be like the water, people.: dumb post alert! My advanced apologies. I don't like the term "reject" for regina's songs. Maybe they're the "cuties" or the "backups" xD That is all! Whoops, my bad--I just thought it was the general term people use for it. But yes, "cuties" or "backups" sound a lot better. "Bonus songs" don't sound bad, too
  15. Jessica {WWSFTCS}

    quote: Originally posted by Kopratic: quote: Originally posted by tourniquet737: I get a sad vibe from it too. Almost like Jessica has died and the narrator has lost her joy ("I'm out of melodies"). S/he's begging (all the "please" passages) Jessica to wake up so s/he can move on with his/her life ("we must get older"). Either way, I feel like this is a "Beauty" reject. In an interview from a few years ago Regi said she had too many songs for the project and could easily fill a few albums with them. Perhaps this is one? (Especially since it doesn't follow the character of the album at all....WWSFTCS is more dark/mysterious/melancholy and piano heavy for this maudlin guitar tune. It sounds like a soliloquy moment where the main character is in front of the curtain during a scene change in a play) Although I can see where you're coming from, I think it does follow the character of the album {as you put it}. Yes, the rest of the album is dark and mysterious, which makes the light tune of "Jessica" appropriate for the end. She's waking up from the dream. Another thing: I don't know whether or not this was intentional, but I like how in "Small Town Moon" {the album opener}, there's the lyric "Today, we're younger than we're ever gonna be." Then, in the closer, it talks about how "We must get older." It gives the album a real sense of a journey. Good call on that Small Town Moon/Jessica one! I definitely sense the journey between those two points. Also, now that I think about it, if you replace every mention of the name "Jessica" and put in "Beauty", then it makes sense. "Beauty, wake up, Beauty, wake up"--it definitely makes sense if this was a reject from the play. (which makes you think how many songs from her next album--after Cheap Seats, that is--will be Beauty rejects...)
