Music Monday: The First Time I Met Regina Spektor June 29, 2009

Well, technically it was the first time I met Regina Spektor’s music, since I’ve never actually met her in person, but I remember very well the day that I was watching VH1, and the video for her song “Fidelity” came on. “Fidelity,” and the album it comes from, Begin to Hope, are old news now, but this talented and unusual musician is still very fresh and successful. Her latest album, Far, was released last week, and once I’ve gotten to know it a little better, I’ll post my thoughts on it here. (So far I am loving it!)

“Fidelity” is one of my favorite Regina Spektor songs. It has an inviting opening, a contagious melody, and those oh so fun “oh oh oh ohs” that I love to sing along with. I don’t really “get” the video, but I suppose it has something to do with taking down your guard and experiencing life, and relationships, to the fullest. It’s cute and artistic, just like the performer. If you’ve never listened to much of Spektor’s music, do yourself a favor and sample Begin to Hope. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. Her music is refreshing, inventive, and worth your time!
