If Regina would ever do a cover song.....

Recommended Posts

Okay well I'm going to sit on the side of "covers aren't bad, as long as it's only a few and new songs are still being written". One song I'd like Regina to sing would be "Redwings" by Guillemots. It's not really anything like her style of music, (but then again that's often what makes a cover effective, the different interpreting of the song's flow) but I think she would make it very impressive. I can't get a link to the song as youtube only has the end and their myspace only has one of their new songs, but hey, there are my 2.99 cents.

"Love of My Life" by Queen. Actually, a CD of Queen covers would be great: Lily of the Valley, Somebody to Love, Who Needs You, Killer Queen, etc. Regina has the attitude and range for it. I can't think of many other artists who do. She might even make Another One Bites The Dust listenable.

Somebody to Love would be a fantastic cover choice. It's piano based from the original, so it's a great choice.

If you recall the whole thing about the movie that she was in...."Winning Girls Through Psychic Mind Control".... she did one or two songs of her own for the soundtrack, and the rest were covers.

Which songs were in that film however, is a completely different question. I have no idea! Anyone know?

Holy Shit!!!!! I didn't know she was in a movie! Wow...(picks jaw up off the floor)...dude that's awsome! I'm gonna have to watch that... like now!

I posted this same response on a Tori Amos site once, but I've always loved this song and I'd love to hear one of my favorite gals take a stab at it.

Pete Townshend

I Am An Animal

I was always here in the silence

But I was never under your eye

Gather up your love in some wiseness,

For every memory shall always survive

And you will see me.

I am an animal

My teeth are sharp and my mouth is full

And the passion is so strong

When I'm alone, loneliness will change me

I am a vegetable

I get my body badly pulled

I'm rooted to the spot

Nothing will rearrange me

I'm looking back and I can't see the past

Anymore so, hazy

I'm on a track and I'm traveling so fast

Oh for sure I'm crazy

I am a human being

I can't believe all the things I'm seeing

I've nowhere to hide anymore

I'm losing my way

I am an angel

I booked in here I came straight from hell

I don't know how to lie anymore

I'm boozing to pray

I'm looking back and I can't see the past

Anymore so, hazy

I'm on a track and I'm traveling so fast

Oh for sure I'm crazy

I was always here in the silence

But I was never under your eye

Gather up your love in some wiseness

for every memory shall always survive

And you will see me

I will be immersed

Queen of the fucking Universe

And I don't know what I have anymore

Anymore than you do

I am a nothing king

Been right around on a golden ring

I don't know where you are anymore

I've got no clue

I was always here in the silence

But I was never under your eye

Gather up your love in some wiseness

for every memory shall always survive

And you will see me

I am an animal

Ok maybe I a little too excited about the movie thing. After doing some searching on the brumstix and the internet and itunes I realized just how elusive this movie is. But I will not give up hope!
