    I post in this thread way too much.
     
    Last night I dreamt Regina was having a concert in this tiny auditorium, and she was fucking up "All the Rowboats" pretty bad. I remember thinking that she must be burnt out after having played it so much on tour and TV.
     
    Reginaaa!

    I had the best Regina dream last night!
     
    In my building there's a lounge in the basement with a digital grand piano and Regina was down there, recording a song with some guy I didn't know. I was ecstatic and asked to get a picture with her. We took a serious one, and then one where we made stupid faces. It was amazing.
     
    Although afterwards the pictures disappeared from the guy's phone we had to use for the pictures, so I couldn't email them to myself. I also flew in the dream, so it was pretty awesome.

    TC got a reaction from Barth in Lady   
    Yeah! According to interviews, Regina is a huuuge Billie Holiday fan. I remember reading that Regina learned to sing by perfecting sing-y impressions of different vocalists, and I'm pretty sure Billie was one of them. Also, I think Billie Holiday was even called "Lady" sometimes? So, yeah! I think it's definitely Billie Holiday related and I'd thought that for awhile -- I'd just never listened to the song closely enough to hear the Billie Holidayness in some of the lines.
     
    Also, the line about poplar trees seems like a reference to Holiday's "Strange Fruit," one of the lines being "Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees."
     
    Edit Oh! Looks like one of Holiday's last albums is called "Lady Sings the Blues," too!

    TC got a reaction from Barth in Lady   
    Holy crap. I've AAALWAYS overlooked this song...not sure why! But I just had my first real moment with it. I listened to it while reading the lyrics and I just connected with it.
     
    I have no idea if I'm making it up, but she sounds like she's emulating Billie Holiday when she sings certain parts of the song...especially the little wet tears line.
     
    SOOOOOOOOOOOO good. I'm so glad Regina is still surprising me, four years on...
     
    Lady sing the blues so well
    As if she mean it
    As if it's hell down here
    In the smoke-filled world
    Where the jokes are cold, they don't laugh at jokes
    They laugh at tragedies

    Corner street societies
    But they believe her
    They never leave her while she sings
    She make them feel safe

    She says, 'I can sing this song so blue
    That you will cry in spite of you
    Little wet tears on your baby's shoulder
    Little wet tears on your baby's shoulder

    And I have walked these streets so long
    There ain't nothin' right, there ain't nothin' wrong
    But the little wet tears on my baby's shoulder
    Little wet tears on my baby's shoulder.'

    Lady lights a cigarette, puffs away, no regrets
    Takes a look around, no regrets, no regrets
    Stretches out like branches of a poplar tree
    Says, 'I am free;' sings so soft as if she'll break

    Says, 'I can sing this song so blue
    That you will cry in spite of you
    Little wet tears on your baby's shoulder
    Little wet tears on your baby's shoulder

    And I have walked these streets so long
    There ain't nothin' right, nothin' wrong
    But the little wet tears on my baby's shoulder
    Little wet tears on my baby's shoulder
    But on this stage I've learned to fly
    Learned to sing and learned to cry
    Little wet tears on my baby's shoulder
    Little wet tears on my baby's shoulder

    But now it's time to say goodbye
    Some might laugh, but I will surely cry
    Little wet tears on my baby's shoulder
    Little wet tears on my baby's shoulder.'

    Lady lights a cigarette
    Puffs away
    And winter comes
    And she
    Forgets

    Double posting, but oh well...
     
    I had a dream that she was announcing a new album, called "Well," and I remember her saying it was "hip-hop, kind of minimalist, but nothing she hasn't done before."
     
    Some of the songs were from 11:11, but they had new names! I think she played a "new song" too but I can't remember any of it...WHAT A GOOD DREAM.

    I agree. It's really quite astounding how close Regina sounds like Billie Holiday in this song. I listen to 'Lady' right after Billie Holiday's 'Strange Fruit' all the time just to marvel at the similarities and connections between the two. I also absolutely loved the part in the end here Regina stops singing and the music kicks in. The piano and the saxophone sounded like they were battling each other for attention while unknowingly merging into one hauntingly beautiful composition.

    I think it's easier to be a casual fan of musicians like Adele, Coldplay, Jessie J...whereas with Regina, I find that you either love her or you really don't care much for her. Therefore, Regina fans would be, by nature, a far more loyal, connected, and condensed group of people.
     
    Though hardcore Regites can't be the only ones voting for her here...maybe she just needed some real solid "mainstream" exposure (via OitNB)?

    Hey there Hoogo! Welcome to the 'stix.
     
    Nothing official has been announced, but a few here have speculated she might go on a spring tour this year...here's hoping!
     
    There's also the various mentions of a new record in 2014, which, while not substantiated by Regina, would most definitely result in a tour.
