iVOICE TEAM EXCLUSIVE: Regina Spektor's Songwriting Secrets

Categories: iVoice
ANOTHER SOUND OF THE CITY CHAT ROOM EXCLUSIVE! We have no idea how these dudes do this, but iVoice correspondent Brandon Stroud hacked into an IM conversation between Regina Spektor and her opening act Only Son and sent us a screenshot! OMMFG!


**Online Host**
Welcome to the Regina Spektor Songwriting Chatroom!


InSpektorDeck: okay, sho far I have "doggy bites my tender heart" written down on a piece of paper 14 times, and then I follow it with a shtanza of really introspective, impossibly-talented music.


InSpektorDeck: how can I make this shong better?


OnlyUnderscoreSon: i think you should stop in the middle of it and go "boopityboop boopity boop" for a while for no reason


OnlyUnderscoreSon: and then you should make a noise like an airplane


OnlyUnderscoreSon: and your singing voice should alternate between a 40 year old Jewish woman from New York and Fran from Final Fantasy XII.

then it would be awesome


InSpektorDeck: thoshe are all valuable suggestions
/scribbles onto notepad


InSpektorDeck: it's upshetting, you know? how I put so much time and effort into making sure each of the crazy noises I make is excellent

InSpektorDeck: but why doesn't this play in the Midwesht? I have 400 teenage girls singing along at my concert, but when they play "Fidelity" on the radio in Cleveland people complain and say it sounds "weird."


OnlyUnderscoreSon: it could be that you go AH AH AH AH AH AH AH AH in the middle of that song


InSpektorDeck: the noishes? the noishes are the problem? I thought you liked the noishes!


OnlyUnderscoreSon: I do like the noises, I think you're awesome and unique


OnlyUnderscoreSon: but then again I sing along to an iPod instead of playing with a band so what do I know


InSpektorDeck: sho... if I want a big hit, I need to write a song without random noishes.


OnlyUnderscoreSon: It's worth a shot. Let's turn on the radio and see what people like! /turns on radio


UniversalSouljah: SO JAH BO UP IN DIS HOOOOO WAT ME CRANK IT WAT ME ROOOOOOO

<

UniversalSouljah: WAT ME CRANK DAT SO JAH BO DEN SOUP A MAN DAT HOOOOOOOO


UniversalSouljah: NOW WHY DIN YOOOOOOOOU

OnlyUnderscoreSon: on second thought, maybe you're just making the wrong noises


InSpektorDeck: oh my god what is he planning to do to that hoe
