Top 10 Regina Spektor Songs

Top 10 of the Week Lyriquediscorde

I could have sworn I’d done a post on Regina Spektor, a Top 10, or a Favorite Artist post. Alas, after searching over the years of posts I see nothing of the sort. What I do find though is Regina’s Songs on many – MANY – playlists through the years. It is definitely time for a Regina Spektor Top 10 Songs feature, past time actually.

Regina Spektor Top 10 Tuesday Lyriquediscorde

Regina’s Music came into my life in the early aughts. It was “Us” I heard first, on the 2004 Album Soviet Kitsch. I would later hear it in the film 500 Days of Summer. Next, I would hear the Song “Samson”, which would immediately make me cry. The Album it resides on, Begin To Hope, would become “My Regina Album” meaning it would be the one I would buy, obsess over, play non-stop, and add Songs from it on so many playlists and mixes. The Songs on that Album hit memories and feelings of love, loss, and change. They hit deep, and as I write this, and “Samson” plays in the background, I feel memories flooding and tears welling up in my eyes.

“Far” was a “grower” and took some time for me to fall for, but eventually, I did. I felt the same way about “What We Saw From the Cheap Seats”. It took some time, but I did get there with it. But then came Remember Us to Life, and that feeling I had with Begin To Hope was back again. I fell hard and fast for all the Songs, the Bonus Track especially – “The One Who Stayed and the One Who Left”.

I think what I love most about Regina is her unusual vocal tone and the Piano. Though I love guitars, it is Pianos I fell in love Musically, my first “instrument love” so to speak, back when I was learning to play myself. Her slightly off-kilter way of telling a story in Song is something I adore, too.
