Gonna get better

Darlings, please excuse the long absence. I've been busy lately...

I give you my sister as Regina Spektor!

Shook it up

I never loved nobody fully
Always one foot on the ground

And by protecting my heart truly
I got lost in the sounds
I hear in my mind

All these voices
I hear in my mind all these words
I hear in my mind all this music

And it breaks my heart...

Suppose I never ever met you
Suppose we never ever loved

Suppose I never ever let you kiss me so sweet and so soft
Suppose I never ever saw you
Suppose we never ever called
Suppose I kept on singing love songs just to break my own fall

Just to break my fall

Just to break my fall...

This time, I wanted to highlight Regina Spektor's "Fidelity," because it's the kind of music that mixtapes are made of. It's a song of new-found and hopeful love, and the singer's performance is very sweet, indeed.

Autumn's been a fan of "Fidelity" ever since she first watched the music video on a screen at her school's cafeteria. I don't intend to spoil anyone's summer fun, but the song often reminds me of school days. The line "I hear in my mind all these words" is like when I used to compose my essays in my head while walking on campus, consequently missing friends' frantic "hellos!"

Perhaps you'd like to know that Regina Spektor has a new album out lately, "Far," and that she'll be performing some of her new songs on the radio tomorrow morning. Please tune into KCRW's "Morning Becomes Eclectic" at 11:15 a.m. (You can also listen to the show on the website anytime afterwards.)

Happy Fourth of July!

Hope you're having some good old American fun this weekend!

(A little ambiance music, if you please.)

See ya'll soon!
