First off, yay! my computers been broken and i haven't been on the stix in forever! good to be back.

Ok, so last night I was at this restaurant that has a history of playing good music over the loudspeaker (last time I was there they played Smoke by the Ben Folds Five). So last night they played Better during dinner, and of course I had to announce it to everyone at my table, (a symptom of my severe reginitis) both of whom are regina-haters. My mother, an active anti-respektor, remarked curtly "Oh, so they do play her in public"

Initially, I was offended by the statement, but then realised that Regina is somewhat of an acquired taste and I shouldn't judge so harshly.

And not to get off topic, but it got me wondering, if thats true, what predisposed me to liking her music? It didn't even take me a few listens to fall in love with her. hmmm... something to think about.

For me, it was an aquired taste thing. I was in the back of a friend's car and she played begin to hope. There were songs I just couldn't stand, but some I really liked (Hotel Song, Fidelity, Better). I decided to get the cd (well, I Limewired it in my pre-pop music obsession days) and then listened to it while I was studying for an AP exam (like, a good 24 hours of studying over the course of a week). So yeah, I think you can be pre-disposed, or just grow attached to the music like I did.

For me, I first heard Fidelity and I hated it, but then heard Apres Moi and Us and absolutely fell completely head over heels in love with everything about her. Just like that. I remember I played the live version of Apres Moi over and over and over again, and I kept thinking, "I don't understand why I love this so much, what makes me so attached to it, but I do, and I am."

I always wonder what makes us drawn to some music, and whether eventually you could like everything if you tried... it's an interesting thing to think about.

I don't remember which song I heard first but I remember the exact night I fell in love for the first time with a Regina song. It was "Ode to Divorce" and I listened it like 50 times on repeat that night.

Then I listened to the rest of her work and it wasn't that automatic. I was only 16 at that time and my musical taste sucked so I thought Regina was too weird and got a bit freaked out when I saw Soviet Kitsch album cover Big Grin

The rest of the story I don't quite remember how I started to really like her but I guess it was when Begin to Hope was released that I opened my mind to my all time favorite musician Smiler

P.S. "Ode to Divorce" was the only song which brought tears to my eyes when I saw her live (I don't cry easily). I think it was more due to the fact that it was the song which introduced me to Regina and I was so grateful for it than anything else.
