The "far" version of One More Time With Feeling" is a LOT different than the live version that you performed several times.

I can't think of another song that changed so much from live to the studio: Can you tell me the story of how OMTWF changed from the concert version to the studio version?

Follow-up question: Any plans to record OMTWF the "old" way?

i would ask that but lose the follow up question. It sounds rude in a way

Maybe someone already knows the answer, but, I would want to know: What was the first song you wrote? What inspired you to write it? In what way has the experience you had with that song shaped you as a songwriter?

I'd probably just have to ask her to go out with me for coffee or something because I think she'd be such an interesting person to get to know and have for a friend. I think she'd be one of those real loyal, genuine, drop-everything-if-you-need-me kinds of friends... Those are hard to come by.

I'd ask her to read my poetry. I'm actually thinking of writing her a letter and sending her a poem or two... I wonder if it'd ever actually get to her and if she'd even bother with reading it... I doubt she'd reply, but I'd still hope she would.

I love this thread, you guys have such good questions. I can't even think of anything I would ask her... I swear if I ever get close enough to her to say something I'll probably just start laughing and crying and probably implode.... I'm not even kidding, my heart is racing just thinking about it...... (: oh well... i might write some of these down just in case hehe.

Thought I’d bump all the questions (minus the marry/adopt/hug me and already answered questions) up so they’re in one place. And here they are:

I love Austin City Limits and was really looking forward to seeing you perform on it, but your performance was never aired. I heard you asked that it not be shown because you didn't like your performance. What's the scoop? Any plans to be on ACL again?

Would you ever consider redoing some songs that are already on earlier albums, such as 11:11 or Songs? I know you have done this in the past, but would you consider it now that you have grown so much and acquired more fans?

Do you speak fluent Hebrew or just have a really good accent?

What are some of your favorite places in New York (since she writes about New York so much)?

What's your favorite Beatles album?

Is 11:11 ever coming out again?

Who would you REALLY like to work with?

Conan loved your performance of Fidelity on his show and was gesticulating like mad as the show played out. What was he saying?

What was Pete Townshend like? (She performed "Music Box" on his/his girlfriend's 'In the Attic' show. Scroll down to episode 4.)

Was someone next door really fucking to one of your songs? If so, which song!?!?!?

I'd ask her why the song "begin to hope" wasn't on the [eponymous] album?

What does brumstix mean ?

Do you picture the "little kid" in Lucky Penney as a boy or a girl?

If Regina hadn't been a singer songwriter/musician for a living, what would she have liked to have done for a career?

I'd ask her about what selections she'd recommend from Russian Literature, considering that's my favourite genre.Then I'd ask for her opinion on Bulgakov, pasternak, chukovskaya,tolstoy, nabokov and Akhmatova.

I know Reg doesn't like talking about the lyrics to her songs, but if she did, I'd ask her who she is talking about in Long Brown Hair.

I'd want to know what annoys Regina the most... What puts her over the edge.

Not sure if it'd be my first question but given "laughing with" Do you believe in God?

I'd ask her if she plans on a long-form symphonic/piano composition, something 9-10 minutes long.
