With her delicate voice, blue eyes, and talent at the ivories, Regina Spektor is clearly Tori Amos' heir apparent. Director Marc WebbBetter" (YouTube) seems to capitalize on this barely-hidden truth with a playful, tongue-in-cheek video for "Better" that finds Regina looking especially similar to Tori. It's so spot on, it's uncanny, especially when a flock of mini Tori Spektors rush over the hill and cause a ruckus as Regina sings longingly into the camera. If you're frightened by a mass of femininity, it's best to skip this video. But, if you're into worshiping a woman's spirit, there couldn't be a better video. Tori would undoubtedly approve.
