Mika!

The CD has "Grace Kelly" on it, though I never really considered Mika to be classified as "Glam."


It says this inside the booklet:

Flashing back on the heyday of Queen, London-based singer Mika scored an international hit in early 2007 with the gloriously opulent "Grace Kelly." The grandiose production references oth the silver-screen idol who gives it its title and Queen's Freddy (dumbasses) Mercury: "I try to be like Grace Kelly / But all her looks were too sad / So I try a little Freddie / I've gone identity mad!" The man born Mica Penniman managed to get Mercury's piano pulled out of storage so that he could play it on the track, which reached No. 1 on the UK singles chart based solely on downloads.

The tracklist is the following:

1. Queen - "Killer Queen"
2. David Bowie - "Suffragette City"
3. Goldfrapp - "Ooh la la"
4. Mott the Hoople - "All the Young Dudes"
5. Adam & the Ants - "Los Rancheros"
6. Roxy Music - "Love is the Drug"
7. T. Rex - "Jeepster"
8. Mika - "Grace Kelly"
9. Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel - "Make Me Smile(Come Up and See Me)"
10. The New York Dolls - "Personality Crisis"
11. Placebo - "20th Century Boy"
12. Bryan Ferry - "Slave to Love"
13. 10cc - "Une Nuit a Paris (Part 1) / The Same Night in Paris (Part 2) / Later the Same Night in Paris (Part 3)"
14. Sparks - "Amateur Hour"
15. Sweet - "Ballroom Blitz"
16. Iggy Pop - "Lust For Life"

It's a pretty good compilation and the packaging is awesome

Ironically enough, Fleet Foxes' album was right next to it so I bought that too


The cover:



It's almost like a pop-up book the way it's packaged.


Yeah....this isn't very exciting news but nothing else is going on so yeah. haha
Some great artists! I'm so happy that Mika is there as well.

At Starbucks, you say? I have to run over there -- I can't believe it
has Mika on the same CD as Sparks (one of my faves), along
with "Suffragette City" and
one of my all-time favorite songs "Love is the Drug." I gotta get me that
CD!

It really is -- my hubby picked it up for me yesterday (I don't get out much ) and I'm listening to it now!

I really wouldn't classify several of these songs as "glam rock" but still --
it's a fun set of tunes, with the added benefit of having Mika on the CD!

What a strange mixture! And as deb says quite a lot of those aren't glam rock to me.

And nice to see Mika has an album out.
Hope he didn't have to work too hard.

Mind, I don't know that it is out in the UK- it certainly hasn't reached Starbucks Middlesbrough.

Is that the furthest outpost of Starbucks, a bit like Hadrian's wall?
