From Regina, With love.


I am loving the new Regina Spektor album! She is amazing and she delivers: haunting melodies, quirky noises, beautiful piano accompaniment, and simple lyrics that create detailed stories in your mind (Wallet is a great example)

I really do love all the songs, but these are my favorites lines from a few songs:

The Calculation
So we made the hard decision And we each made an incision Past our muscles and our bones Saw our hearts were little stones Pulled them out they weren't beating And we weren't even bleeding As we lay them on the granite counter top We beat 'em up Against each other We beat 'em up Against each other We struck 'em hard Against each other We struck 'em so hard So hard Until they sparked

Laughing With
But God can be funny At a cocktail party when listening to a good God-themed joke Or when the crazies say He hates us And they get so red in the head you think they're 'bout to choke

Two Birds
Two birds of a feather Say that they're always gonna stay together But one's never going to let go of that wire He says that he will But he's just a liar

The dolphin noises Regina makes in Folding Chair are brilliant, though I cannot seem to connect to my inner dolphin. I’m not really sure what noise I’m making when I sing that part.

I didn’t buy the deluxe version but I’ll download the two extra songs soon off of iTunes.
