Regina Spektor – Ode to Divorce

The food that I’m eating Is suddenly tasteless I know I’m alone now I know what it tastes like So break me to small parts Let go in small doses But spare some for spare parts There might be some good ones Like you might make a dollar I’m inside your mouth now Behind your tonsils Peeking over your molars You’re talking to her now And you’ve eaten something minty And you’re making that face that I like And you’re going in, in for the kill, kill For the killer kiss, kiss for the kiss, kiss I need your money, it’ll help me I need your car and I need your love [x2] So won’t you help a brother out? Won’t you help a brother out? Won’t you help a brother out, out, out, out, out? So break me to small parts Let go in small doses But spare some for spare parts You might make a dollar Dollar, you might make a dollar So won’t you help a brother out? Won’t you help a brother out? Won’t you help a brother out, out, out, out, out? Just break me to small parts Let go in small doses But spare some for spare parts There might be some good ones You might make a dollar (There might be some good ones) There might be some good ones (You might make a dollar) You might make a dollar (There might be some good ones) There might be some good ones

      Yeah almost all of her stuff is WAY better live. Theres just something about her that cannot be captured in studio.

      This song strikes me more now than when I was a teenager. It makes me realize I’ve been through much more than I thought.

      The first time I heard this song, I laughed so hard when she said “so can you help a brotha’ out?” XD
      That’s a compliment, though. She’s a wonderful lyricist and a wonderful singer, I’m actually just getting into music recently. I’m glad I made that decision. 🙂

      @BreannahelloFilms There’s something really special attached to this recording.. And I don’t hear it live. I’ve never heard the emotion and tone of her voice in here reproduced anywhere. It’s so flawless. I’ve been looking for a recorded version on youtube for AGES. THANK YOU, UPLOADER. 😀

      The first time I heard the song I started bawling almost out of nowhere. Until she said “so won’t you help a brotha out” then I started laughing almost uncontrollably. This song is so ridiculously emotional in so many ways and that’s why I love it.

      50 likes and I’ll sing this to the boy I love.

    12. Leozodiac says:

      Feminist Bullshit.

      70-80% of all divorce is brought upon by “Liberated” women.

      Fuck this horseshit.

    13. arkaeoperix says:

      @Leozodiac lol wat. Did you even look at the lyrics? This isn’t about being liberated at all. This about being abandoned by someone you love, which happens to everyone at some point unless they’re ridiculously lucky; men and women. Does she sound particularly liberated and happy when singing this? No. Women break hearts, men break hearts, and the men and the women write pretty metaphors about it. I’m a guy, and your unprovoked raging anti-feminist comment is simply out of place and awkward.

      Just enjoy the music guys. Kill the arguments accept people have different opinions. Peace.

      “The food that I’m eating
      Is suddenly tasteless”

      most perfect description of love ever

      i would learn rusian for you

      I posted the official music video 🙂

    18. strontiumXnitrate says:

      @arkaeoperix I agree that leozodiac’s comment is out of place here, but there is nothing awkward about it. It is pretty straightforward. He expressed something he felt was true (and used a ‘colourful’ language’). If you feel awkward reading it, it is another matter altogether. Besides, what is wrong with being anti-feminist?

    19. arkaeoperix says:

      @strontiumXnitrate It is straight forward and coherent, yes, but due to it being so out of place it is awkward. It doesn’t relate to the song at all, but tries to make a tedious connection. In terms of his thoughts, there isn’t much wrong with having a negative view on feminism (we’re all allowed opinions), but when you start talking angrily about it unprovoked and in a way that can only be construed as malicious your opinion becomes annoying and hard to agree with.

    20. strontiumXnitrate says:

      @arkaeoperix Well it seems we’re more in greement then not. I do not know the original comentator,so I can’t guess what pissed him off. I was puzzeld by the lines like ‘I need your money, your car and your love’. I cannot see how that relates to the song. Is this an attempt at irony? If you know, please tell me. Also if you are as clueless as I am.

    21. arkaeoperix says:

      @strontiumXnitrate Well in that line she’s asking for money, which contrasts with “Just break me to small parts/Let go in small doses/But spare some for spare parts/There might be some good ones/You might make a dollar” where she’s seems to be trying to sacrifice herself in some way to get money for him. Maybe it’s to highlight who cares more about money in the narrative? I honestly don’t know.

    22. strontiumXnitrate says:

      @arkaeoperix Well, thanks anyway. I guess that’s one for the ages.

    23. SandyRow23x3 says:

      Ever notice how she changes “help a brother out” into the repeated “out” as if she’s yelling at someone to get out.

      She’s a genius

    24. KetsaKunta says:

      This song is so emotional.
      I thought she was singing in german because my volume was really low and I saw her on a german cover. Shes a really deep singer and in my mind is the best blues singer in this century.
