phhhaaahaha I must say I've never read and therefore never realized the hilarity in this thread before.

But, I have to say something. As someone whose very very very first impression of regina was the fidelity video, I too immediately wondered why she was "playing" piano. To be perfectly honest, due to the lack of piano in the song, and her "unconventional" style of playing it (lifting her hands 10miles above the keys) in the vid, I thought she must be some airhead singer who they just sat at a piano for looks (so, so sorry reginka). In fact, it was only recently that i finally came to terms with it. Watching her on Jools Holland, I saw her repeatedly lift her hands to near-fidelity proportions off the keys and in that moment, it all became ok.

Not that that kept me from adoring the fidelity video it all this time.

PS- someone needs to make it their life quest to find the alternate video for fidelity. any takers???

The Fidelity video was my first impression of Regina, too.

I was so completely awestruck that I never even NOTICED that she was playing an instrument that isn't even a part of the song. I would have never realized this had it not been for your post.

You really do learn something new every day!

I believe there was a two or three second excerpt of it in Adria Petty's promotional montage on her old web. Someone can try contaction Adria she might be willing to feature the video on her site.
