The Top Ten Regina Spektor Songs
I’m so excited to be writing a post about my absolute favourite musician Regina Spektor! I read a blog post a few years ago listing the best of her songs so I thought I would do my own Top 10.
I first heard Regina on the soundtrack to ‘The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe’. I then bought her album ‘Far’ back in 2009. Since that life-changing purchase I’ve listened to pretty much every song she’s written or performed about a thousand times each.
Regina is a poet unlike many other singers these days. She’s got an absolutely heavenly way with words and sounds that someone like Leonard Cohen has, and there’s definitely a sort of T. S. Eliot vibe to her writing. How can you listen to ‘On The Radio’ or ‘Aching To Pupate’ and not hear the poetry? She’s also a fantastic musician with an insane Nina Simone esq creativity to her piano-playing.
Anyway, enough gushing. In no particular order, here are my ten favourite Regina Spektor songs which was a VERY HARD task to do!
1. I Cut Off My Hair
4. Dance Anthem of the 80s
7. That Time
8. Mary Ann
N.B. There are no Regina Spektor songs that I don’t like.
