  1. Name that Reg Tune... in other words

    Pound of Flesh: "If you're never sorry, then you can't be forgiven; if you're not forgiven, then you can't be forgotten; if you're not forgotten, then you must live forever." "I have departed and do not wish to remain in communication with you."
  2. misheard lyrics

    This isn't a misheard lyric, but I can never hear the "forgets" at the end of "Lady." Is it before the saxophone or during?

Some stupid comments, but lots of praise too. It seems the mean comments were a set up for the praise to really be big praise. Like a contrast trick to really show how much he liked the concert. I think that's what he was trying to do. That article hurt my head. A lot of the things he mentions/criticizes ("an ugly as hell black and red dress") are way out of line and completely unnecessary. It's so funny how he butchered a few of her song titles. Wow @ this guy. a terrible first song she has been trotting out for a month A month???? hahahaha try like 5 years. his a new song called "How" is among her best ever... a potential inclusion into the Great American Songbook...this song is so beautiful, it is immediately one of her greatest moments. With all due respect to regina and How, this guy is on crack. I would be pretty sure that a woman who starts a love song with "We were like sisters…" is playing hide in plain sight. Good thing those aren't actually the lyrics then. OMG people cannot write worth shit. I hope this guy didn't get paid for this horrid piece of english and non-factchecked thing. Dear God. I don't care if you're critical but try to use some grammar and punctuation and knowledge. The Calculator...LOL ok...i'm done now...bahahaha can anyone take that seriously??? I didn't realize it was even possible not to like "Ain't No Cover." You learn something new every day, I guess. "We were like sisters"? What song is that supposed to be? I'd guess "Better" if the "born like sisters" bit were at the beginning, but as it stands I have no idea.
  4. Reg in Voxpop Magazine (FR)

    I have the cover of that magazine blown up as a poster on my wall! Also, I love hearing her talk about her parents. I love my own, but it still kind of makes me jealous. They sound like such great people.

    I'm going to take the liberty of suggesting a new one. "I was completely mistaken: the apocalypse did not occur."
  6. Oh my god, thanks so much! Obviously "Uh-Merica" was really meant for a live audience. And "Hotel Song" sounds fantastic a cappella.
  7. Hey guys! I have a couple of dumb questions. First: Where can I find the Hotel Song demo? The posts I've found where people were offering it had links that either had expired or were from Megaupload. Second: There's an official pre-Begin to Hope version of "Uh-Merica" out there somewhere, right? I can't find the "Carbon Monoxide" single it's supposedly attached to on iTunes or Amazon.

    "Down in the ground they're tattooing the stones with cusses, like cavemen ..." "I have determined how to reach her by telephone."
  9. Other good music

    Florence is terrific! I haven't heard much besides Lungs, though. I thought about seeing Eclipse, half for the fun of it and half because she's on the soundtrack, but then I couldn't be bothered. Her cover of Beirut's "Postcards from Italy" is pretty great. Another one you should all check out is Laura Marling, a British folk singer. Usually I tell people to start with "Rambling Man," "Failure" or "Night After Night," both because they're more accessible than some of her other songs and because they're some of my favorites. But I'm guessing most Regina fans can handle the weirder stuff, so you can probably start with whatever.

    I LOVED "Open." I think what they did with it is exactly right. Did anyone notice she sang "Ne Me Quitte Pas" with the old ending? That was the one thing I really missed on the new version.

    My friend and I are lower balcony also, 108 and 109. I haven't been active on this forum in a while, and I didn't meet any of you the last time I saw her. How on earth will I know who you guys are?
  12. Spare front row ticket to Radio City NYC tonight

    oh my god sooo tempted ... but I have a philosophy paper due tomorrow that still needs a ton of work.
  13. Interviews & Appearences 2009

    quote: Originally posted by Rinoa: quote: Originally posted by RJLupin2: We should definitely be happy and supportive of her, but... I don't know... I just.. I just feel very weird about this for some reason. This may actually have to do with my very strange feelings for her, I just realized (you know, the feelings that I asked advice for that no one was really able to figure out what the hell it was/is). I'm feeling weird, too. I'm explaining that to myself like this: Great, she has a long term boyfriend, now all my fantasies about her being a lesbian and asking me to marry her when I meet her ( hopefully) are blown away. And I'm not even a lesbian. Also there's this fear telling me " No Regina, don't marry him or something, not yet! And the kids! Noooooo! What will happen to the music?! " Being a fan is a funny thing. I'm a girl and live in Connecticut, so of course I've been hoping for an opportunity to meet Regina, sweep her off her feet, and bring her to my house, where a justice of the peace would conveniently be waiting. ETA: Not that I'm not happy for her, of course.
  14. Interviews & Appearences 2009

    I love the Werchter interview! The interviewer actually kept her questions short and let Regina talk, which not many seem to do.
