  1. Anyone here? Happy, healthy and honest 2020 to everyone! Saw Bombshell last week and noticed a warm recognition coming over me at the credits and realized it's Regina singing. The new song has defining Regina touches, but as so often it is again unique. Personally love the drums/synth drop giving it a fat electro vibe and Regina wailing the chorus! I liked the movie too. It might've flown over the radar for the mixed reviews it got and I'm sure that in current USA the Trump references did not help. But a story like this is not even political, it can happen anywhere when power abuse runs free. Besides, it has astounding acting all around and a nuanced script. And as for Regina satirizing: "doesn't even matter what you say", to me it'll always matter if you say it right like this song. Here's some words on the song too: https://northerntransmissions.com/regina-spektor-releases-one-little-soldier/

  3. Regina is everywhere

    Was listening to Kimya Dawson's Thunder Thighs album, track 6 "Zero Or Zillion sports the following lyrics: As I sit and listen to a kid you clearly influenced I text and say I'm glad that you're my friend (yay!) Then leave another perfect time show, feeling inspired and powerful "The Ghost of Corporate Future" in my head (my fucking head!) And as I count the ways that I've said "fuck you" to the man I don't care who thinks that I've sold out or not Since going barefoot I feel better That Regina fucking Spektor is a name I'll never be ashamed to drop (Go Regina!) I saw that little weirdo walk into the open mic, sit down shyly at the piano and then start (Wow!) Singing songs we'll start to knowing, silly, sad and so mind blowing They were undeniably straight from the heart (Right from the heart!) P.S. I'm new here, is there some sort of an introduction topic? :-)
