Have you heard of Mika?
« on: February 12, 2007, 04:50:48 am »
Yesterday, pop newcomer Mika was celebrating after reaching number one in the UK singles and album chart simultaneously.
 
The Beirut-born singer's debut album Life In Cartoon Motion entered at number one, while lead single Grace Kelly spends a fourth week at the top.

Have you heard of Mika and listend to his single 'Grace Kelly'?

This is a great little tune - and he sounds very Freddy Mercury like.

If you havwen't heard of him - I'm sure if you type 'mika grace kelly' into youtube it'll come up.

Sorry Kelda. I'm ashamed to admit I've never heard of Mika.  ???

I sure do hope they don't revoke my gay card for this.

But if you recommend her, I'll check out some of her music!  :)

Yep I have heard of him, I live in England and his song is on the radio loads at the moment. I downloaded it too, its pretty good. I don't know how he sings that high!
I saw you were sick and tired of my wrong turns.
If you only knew the way I feel,
I'd really love to tell you,
But I could never seem to say
The things I needed to.
On a day like today
No other words would do.

Its a toss up between Mika's 'Grace Kelly' & The View's 'I've got the same jeans on....' that i sing in my head all the time at the moment.

I've heard of him. I have listened to his one song a lot (it airs a lot on the radio channel I listen to) - but I forget the title. Yeah no, I just checked - RELAX TAKE IT EASY. Good stuff!

I'm listening to 'Grace Kelly' just now on http://www.myspace.com/mikamyspace

Here in NZ, Mika is VERY famous as a gay drag queen and as a composer of some substantial quality orchestral  pieces. Is there some other Mika I don't know about?
I gave him what I hoped was that hopeful innocent puppy look that said “don’t you just want ta rub my tummy” rather than that hungry, ravenous wolf look that said “why don’t you just come out a that brick house so I can eat you up little pig?” LVH: 'What I did on my Day Off'
