Regina Spektor: Far (album cover)

I wrote about getting turned on to Regina Spektor back in January, 2007.

This morning, she was interviewed on NPR’s Morning Edition: “Regina Spektor Hears Magic In The Inexplicable.”

It’s interesting to hear how the Beatles influenced her, because I had instantly recognized that same playful creativity in her music.

Tomorrow night (Friday, June 26), she’ll perform on The Late Show with David Letterman.

Her latest album is called Far, and it’s available in handy MP3 download form at

This the official video for the album’s first single, “Laughing With.”

And here is Regina Spektor performing “On the Radio” (from the album Begin to Hope) on Letterman, April 20, 2007. Her lyrics are really great — especially the line about “November Rain.”
