Does Anyone Listen To/Appreciate Regina Spektor?

Sat Nov 07, 2009 6:23 am

I'm a huge fan of this brilliant lady. Her music and voice is so unusual, full of life and individuality. I just came back from her concert in Salt Lake City. Was in the front row, like 10 feet away from her. One of the best concerts I've ever seen. I just can't get over her natural voice and singing capabilities.

Does anyone else like her? I know many of my friends haven't even heard of her. A pity!

I've heard of her, not too familiar with her music, but what I did hear was good. Is she as pretty in real life as I've seen in pictures?

I am also a huge fan of her. Her voice gives me chills and her new album "Far" is just amazing. I'm so impressed by her writing abilities and some of the things she does with her voice are mind-blowing. I could list specific examples I love but it would take too long to name them all.

Phenomenal artist.

I find her to be one of the most interesting singers/performers out their today. Unlike too many women singers, she is more about the music and not showing off her body. She does have a unique and somewhat quirkey musical and singing style, but she seems to have an intellegence in her lyrics that you don't see enough today.

I saw her perform live, with a cold. She was apologetic about her voice the entire time and taking breaks to sip on tea. She was still great and I couldn't tell that she was sick.

She is gorgeous. Completely the opposite of other females. She cares about her music not how "sexy" she looks. The great, light blue dress she wore yesterday made her look stunning.

100% true. Her voice is unsurpassed.

It's funny how innocent she is in real life. Or so seems, so timid and quiet. But she really opens up when she starts singing.

Not at all! From what I've heard, her concerts are packed. Yesterday, here in SLC, wasn't an exception. Full venue, even Regina herself was surprised. When she initially made her appearance, she just sat down and uttered "Holy Sh*t!"

She doesn't like to disappoint her fans  Smile I will be seeing her again for sure! It's an experience like no other.

She's great.
Although, my favorite song is one that she does with Ben Fold's called "You don't know me".
It's really good.

I absolutely love her music. She has a way of making notes flow together in an amazing way. She has an incredible talent! Wish I had made it to SLC for her concert.

Sadly I only know just one song from her: Better

It's great and she has a great voice...

Any other song recommended?

Yeah, that's a great combo. I think Hotel Song is my favorite as is On The Radio... the rest of them I really have to be in the right mood, and it isn't all that often.
