The first time I heard Regina Spektor’s ‘Carbon Monoxide’ took place at a time where I had begun to change my listening habits, bored with listening to the same old stuff and ready for a change.
I was at a friend’s place in Melbourne. ‘Hey listen to this, it’s pretty neat’ he says casually.
So I did…one word…awesome.
The piano, simple but striking. The voice – wow. The words – had no idea what the hell she was on about, but loved it anyway!
I immediately had to find out what else Regina had to offer, which led me to ‘Fidelity’, ‘On the Radio’ and ‘Samson’, among many others. Each song is a little window that offers a glimpse into the life of her (often very odd!) characters.
I’ve discovered a lot of music since I first heard ‘Carbon Monoxide’ and I plan to share what I like with anyone who stumbles across my blog.
I’m still learning how this blog stuff works so please bear with me.
