Regina Spektor Better

Regina Spektor released the music video for ‘Better’ in November 2006. The single, Better, is from the album, Begin To Hope. Regina sings in front of a television screen, her image repeated in video feedback. The first music video released was a low budget film, put together in twenty minutes in Regina’s office. According to Regina’s MySpace blog, filming was shot in 20 minutes in Adria’s office, and was totally free to make. “All was done in real time and then a couple of takes were edited together. No hair or makeup person, and no one to stop me from being a full on dork… Just how i like it.” The second music video was a more complex affair, this time taking the concept of duplication to higher levels of sophistication, in an outdoor environment.

Lyrics for Better

If I kiss you where it’s sore
If I kiss you where it’s sore
Will you feel better, better, better
Will you feel anything at all
Will you feel better, better, better
Will you feel anything at all

Born like sisters to this world
In a town where blood ties are only blood
If you never say your name out loud to anyone
They can never ever call you by it

If I kiss you where it’s sore
If I kiss you where it’s sore
Will you feel better, better, better
Will you feel anything at all
Will you feel better, better, better
Will you feel anything at all

You’re getting sadder, getting sadder, getting sadder, getting sadder
And I don’t understand, and I don’t understand
But if I kiss you where it’s sore
If I kiss you where it’s sore
Will you feel better, better, better
Will you feel anything at all
Will you feel better, better, better
Will you feel anything at all
Anything at all
Will you feel anything at all
Anything at all
Will you feel anything at all
Anything at all…
