I don't like the Begin to Hope version, while I really like this version. When she's played her music live before its been arranged and put on an album its almost always much better. When arranged on her albums a lot of extra stuff is put in that ruins the songs for me. Her live versions of "Hero of the Story" and "The Virgin Queen" are so good if you can find the right concert recording.

Thanks for the link. Checked it out, but I prefer the LP version. The one you like more has a dirge quality that isn't as appealing to me as the bouncyness of the LP tune. As far as her other work goes, I really have only enjoyed Fidelity. So far, everything else I've heard by Spektor doesn't leave a mark with me.

You could try these for leaving a mark. They are not bouncy though. For bouncy have you tried her album Soviet Kitsch?

Better to listen and not watch video, I think it takes away from the experience.

Loved both tunes! Excellent shares, Boss.

Btw, bouncy is generally not a requirement in my music. It's not a hindrance by any means, but I can get morbid wit' da best of 'em. I will however be checking out the LP you've suggested.

:D If you like those two you should check out "Braille" and "Genius Next Door." Album version are good.
