A Much Earlier Than Usual Clue to the New Direction: She's Suffered For Her Art -- Now It's Your Turn!

From 2002, please enjoy nice Jewish girl archly artsy singer/songwriter Regina Spektor and her ode to everybody's favorite mofo, the only slightly annoyingly mannered "Oedipus."

Say what you will about Spektor -- and I like some of her stuff, in small doses -- but at least she's not as skull-crushingly obnoxious as that Joanna Newsom kid.

In any case, a coveted PowerPop No-Prize will be awarded to the first reader who gleans the song's relevance to the theme of tomorrow's Weekend Listomania.
