Name rings a big bell, but I don't think I've heard her music.
Quote by Mia (Pulp Fiction)
Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullsh*t in order to be comfortable?

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

I've only heard "Poor Little Rich Boy", it's refreshing and I like it pretty well but I don't think it's the kind of thing I'd run out and get; definitely one of those bargain bin/ find it cheap situations for me.

The song "Us" is pretty damn good. Its like Alanis meets Bjork meets Randy Newman. Check it!

My friend lent me "Mary Ann and the Gravediggers and other short stories by Regina Spektor".

I love it, espically Sailor Song, "Mary Ann's a bitch..."

The Strokes song she did was Modern Girls and Old Fashioned Men, it was a b-side off a ROF single. Nick from the Strokes is on one or two of the tracks on her new CD as well. I like some of her stuff.

Thanks for saying that, the same friend who lent me the CD lent me a Strokes CD with Rarities and B-sides and stuff on it a year ago, and I believe I have Modern Girls and Old Fashioned Men. I had forgotten about that...

She is pretty awesome...although her new cd is kinda poppy for me, I mostly like it when she goes into her little quirky moments

I've been listening to her nonstop for about half a year and still going strong. Soviet Kitsch has it for me, including the one or two (what I call) "throwaway" songs on it.

I can't really say enough about her songwriting not to mention the execution. I find her so outstanding.

I'm going to marry her.

Her music is brilliant. Samson is (and I don't use this word often) beautiful. I just love is when her voice goes all high- Like in the song 'Oedipus' when she says 'thirty-twooooo', and it sends shivers down my spine.

Other good songs are Fidelity, Us, and the Flowers.

Our wedding is in April next year if you want to come.

^I'd suggest a little Soviet Kitsch

Somehow, I relate the bridge from Regina's Soviet to Begin To Hope and Cat Power's You Are Free to The Greatest: not quite a disappointment or anything, just doesn't push the bar up much higher.

Regina Spektor is the single greatest vocalist of our time.

Fidelity is amazing but what first got me caught on her was Sampson. the original demo version kills the album version.

I need to see her live though thats one thing I haven't been able to do yet.

i'm in love with her

the album songs is my favorite of hers, it's before she started experimenting with other instruments, so it's only voice and piano. and the occasional clap and drumstick. i think it's up for download on her website, or something like that, i don't know.

Okay, so I found this: http://www.reginaspektor.net/

It has abunch of songs that were recorded live but it's all in blog style and whatnot, so it's kinda annoying to go through.


edit: Ta-da!:http://www.reginaspektor.net/link.html?http://www.reginaspektor.net/recordings-main.html

And I was hoping some of the songs wouldn't be live but actually studio but whatever..

I haven't checked the songs out so I don't know the quality or anything.

She is INCREDIBLE. I really mean it, I've walked all the way from the Hardcore and Metal forums just to find a thread on her and post in it.

Her live videos on Youtube are amongst the best I've ever seen. I'm gonna see her in Newcastle.

Fidelity is one of the best songs ever. I really do love it! But I haven't heard that much else of her stuff... But the bit I have hasn't blown my mind...

Yes, she is quite awesome. Great voice! A friend of mine turned me onto her and another artist, Terra Naomi

Anyone else like her as well? Any other recommendations based on Regina?

Regina is awesome. I'm open to suggestions anyone has for similar artists.

Braille does it for me, 'she hadn't been a virgin and he hadn't been a god' always sends a chill down throuyight.

Caustic, The Dresden Dolls and Joanna Newsom are two that spring to mind for me...

Anyone who doesn't like Regina Spektor is a fag. There, I said it.

I have the most recent album, and that's it, but I love it dearly.

Ahh, already love the 'Dolls. I've heard Newsoms name knocking around before, must investigate.

I saw both the 'Dolls and Spektor weeks apart, both cracking gigs, the Dolls had a bunch of people in jump suits playing stomp-style in the middle of the venue, an acrobat on a rope, dancing zombies and the mindblowing Devotchka supporting. That's a gig that'll stick in my mind!

Newsom sounds nothing like Regina, but at the same time you'll listen and see where i'm coming from. Try Fiona Apple, Katy Williams (sp?) and Cat Power as well.
