Oh Regine Chassagne I don't know much abt u but know ur the girl from the Arcade Fire Have had my eye on u for a while Regine... Not even sure how to pronounce ur name but getting rlly in2 u Oh Regine... Sometimes I see u on stage, jimmy jangling a tambourine Other times u will playing some sort of weird accordian instrument ur super enigmatic Like a 'foreign chick' at college who all the bros 'want' Sometimes I wonder if u r kinda like if the Beatles had let Yoko Ono in2 the band and Yoko would have had the chance to prove that she 'can ball over all' and make the band way more authentic / help them to write better songs evolve into a 'global indie brand' Wonder if the Beatles missed out/coulda stayed together if they let Yoko in2 the band. Feel like maybe the Arcade Fire would be 100% better / 100% worse with/without Regine Oh Regine... Ur kinda cute Ur from Haiti, right? U kinda remind me of a mix of Feist, Alice Glass, Zooey Deschanel, Bethany Cosentino, Ke$ha and some1 else that is hot/ post-hot in an alt kind of way Regine... Can't believe Win Butler married u He's lucky But at the same time, kinda wonder if he regrets not getting to 'bang' tons of indie skank road ass If u have Regine U don't need entry level skanks who 'love ur music' U already have The Regine Really interesting that they let you sing lead vocals "Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)" 'arguably' the best song on the album THE SUBURBS
Can't tell if ur voice can really 'hold up' Part of me wants Win 2 sing that song but maybe it was his gift to u to let u into this buzzband Regine... I believe I could slot u into any band and make them sexier/more relevant Regine--I believe in u Oh Win How did u do it? U started the #1 indie rock band in the history of the world and u got Regine Ur a lucky man U deserve it What I wouldn't give 2 wake up in neighborhood #3 in the suburbs with Regine Oh Regine Been watching u so closely from the very beginning Ur more than just a female multi-instrumentalist U r 'the glue' of the Arcade FireAfter the M.I.A. anti-ginger wave really don't like the ginger guy who 'bangs on shit' No way that dude is 'the glue' of the Arcade Fire U gotta give it up 4 my girl Regine Oh Regine let's just go back to our childhood homes in suburbia and throw molotov cocktails at houses / cars we'll start a buzzband and write an album about 'rising above' my suburban past Honestly not even sure who is 'in' the Arcade Fire Who actually 'has equity' in the band and who is just a 'hired gun' to 'fill basketball arenas' with sound Not sure who that other non-Regine girl but she is kinda keut (But she is no Regine) Oh Regine... Oh Regine... Regine Regine Regine... Might give up on Alice Glass and put 'all of my eggs' in the Regine Chassagne basket Do u <3 Regine? Is Regine way better than Best Coast? Is Regine the 'Yoko Ono' of indie music? Could u slot Regine into any indie band and make them more relevant? Do u crush harder on Regine or Zooey Deschanel? Should Regine 'go solo' and ride the slutwave? Is Regine mad talented, or 'just along for the ride'? Behind every great man, is there a great woman? Or behind every successful woman, is there a man making decisions/pressing buttons? Is there something about Regine? Who is the current 'sexiest woman alive' in indie music? <3 indie vagine
The Arcade Fire is a 2k0s indie band that went mainstream because their songs sound like meaningful anthems. They pretend to be Canadian but Win Butler (lead singer) is actually from Houston, TX.
