Watch This Now: Regina Spektor – “Don’t Leave Me (Ne Me Quitte Pas)”

“If you are a deity of any sort, then please don’t go…”

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy. Y’know, I don’t often get the chance to say it, but how great is Regina Spektor? She makes consistently good records, she looks like a goddess and her videos rule. Them’s some pretty big ticks if you ask me, what more could you ever really want? Oh, gee, how about some toy caterpillars, lampshades, yellow paint and mannequin hands? Really? Did you really ask for allofthose very specific things just right now? Oh man, you have no idea how lucky you are.

Yes, all of these very peculiar things take a starring role in Regina’s adorable new video.

It just goes to show the absolute power of the imagination when one is left to their own devices. I particularly like the anti-gravity scene, as well as the slow dance that Regina partakes in where she’s covered in a bedsheet. Like I said in the Steve Burns video: Like hell you’ve never done something like this when you’re alone; and if you haven’t, what’s wrong with you? Can’t you see how much fun Regina’s having? Really, why can’t you be more like Regina? Geez.
