    Will Mika resume the tour yet, or will it be possible to see him now only on TV?
  3. Mika wrote a column called "Still a kiss..." on Vogue Italia that will be released on 04.11.2017 On the site you can find an anticipation of it Translation by VV* It starts today, and it airs every Tuesday until November the 20th at 21:20 on Rai2, “Stasera Casa Mika”, the award winning Mika one man show. The Lebanese born, English based singer/songwriter, who came out as gay in 2012, is the author of a bold article, available on the November number of Vogue Italia, out November the 4th. Here is a brief anticipation. A cover, three kisses, a heterosexual and two gay ones. Why does the September edition of Vogue Italia, rose such a big amount of dust, ending up being seen and shared millions of times on thousands Instagram accounts worldwide? Wasn’t it “just a kiss”, at the end? The reason seems clear: the gay kiss. But if we look closer, maybe things are not really as they seem. If on one hand an act of love between two men (or two women) is still able to raise such a fuss, on the other, this reaction is the proof that the picture does work. Because it touches a deep spot of our being. And forces us to think. So: are we really sure, that what makes this picture so annoying is homosexuality? What if it was its visual composition, so full of subtexts, of delicate undertones and connections? The lips of two men which almost brush against each other, without getting to touch, suspended in the never-ending moment which follows or precedes the kiss: this is maybe, what makes it so special. Because if we browse the socials, we can find millions of gay kisses, even far more explicit than this. But they are nothing more than bits of stories, lacking emotions, interpretation, they are cold even if we add a “warm” tone to the picture. Technology got us used to a huge stream of images that we like and which we immediately forget. It’s a process which is killing empathy, it’s a huge peril. Provocation, on the other hand, is a discipline that needs an artistic and intellectual preparation. Without intelligence, sensitivity, and culture, it becomes sensationalism, or worse, trash. The “provocateur” is aware of his role, and assumes full and serious responsibility. And that’s what magazines have to do as well, especially those that have an authoritative and transversal voice, as Vogue Italia does, because they measure the emotional temperature of society. The image they put on the cover is therefore a visual statement, the equivalent of a written editorial: it forces you to take some time, the time you need to listen to a story, find its interpretation, examine it in depth, things that in the kaleidoscopic juke-box of the web, we don’t do anymore. That’s where the true provocation lays, on Vogue Italia’s cover. In the call to find such emotion again. The one enclosed in the wait for the imagined kiss, which is the most intense part of the kiss itself. Mika, Vogue Italia, November 2017, n.807
  4. What we are doing

    What we are doing in this platform? I'm new club member and I'm fan for Mika. What am I doing now?
  5. Mika will feature on a Dalida tribute album by the famous trumpet player and composer Ibrahim Maalouf. For the album, released on November 17th, Mika covered the song Salma Ya Salama. This is originally an Egyptian song, composed by musician Sayed Darwish for the 1919 play Qulu lu, according to Wikipedia. The lyrics are by Egyptian poet Badi' Khairi. In 1977, Dalida covered it in both Egyptian Arabic and French. Dalida's version can he heard here. More info about this album can be found here.
  6. Lola Incident

    Hi everyone I'm new here, just spent the whole day going through all the amazing material here, thanks especially to the amazing translating team, you guys deserve the world for your contributions! I was watching the Mobistar concert where he forgot the lyrics to "Lola" and then tried to get someone to look up the lyrics then seemed kinda pissed when they didn't find it. I thought it was hilarious but also wondered what other singers do when they forget their lyrics? Do they also get the audience to help or just change songs? And then I wondered why didn't Mika have the lyrics printed out? He seems to have these papers on the top of his piano. And he said whoever gave him the lyrics could sit on the stage for the rest of the gig but I didn't see that. Sorry if this topic has already been covered.
  7. New(ish) member to the Fandom

    Hey guys I've been listening to MIKA for about half a year now. I just made this painting today and thought it would be a good icebreaker to start talking in the forums. Tell me what you think, it's one of my first paintings in acrylic and one of my largest paintings to date. Sorry if the quality is bad, I had to take the pic with my phone. Its based off of the Good Guys music video (obviously)

  9. Hi everyone:) I was just thinking the other day about how Mika is mostly involved in France and Italy these days. I am from Canada and am a really big fan of Mika...I wish he received the notoriety he deserves. I have never understood why he isn't popular in the U.S. His music is amazing and of course he is very handsome and a lovely person. I am always shocked that not many people here in Canada talk about him or know his music (I am not from Quebec though). I saw a commenter say he should try the USA/UK audience again and I agree! His music is too amazing to go unnoticed by these countries. So how is Mika perceived in your country?
  10. Songs similar to Erase

    Hello everyone! I realize that Mika hates his song "Erase". I understand that it sounds much more mainstream for the time than his other songs did. I wanted to know though...when I listen to Erase and especially the chorus piano part, it reminds me of other songs from around 2007. I cannot think of one actual song name though and it is really bothering me! Some people in a fourm a while ago mentioned The Climb being similar but I don't think it has the same atmosphere as Erase (and I really dislike The Climb!). I know a few songs from that time period felt very similar though and I want to know what they are! If anyone can remember any songs from the 2000s that sound like Erase please comment! Thank you
  11. pleasw sign this petition, you are also alowed if you would come to Germany to see Mika;
  12. Hi All, By now, it's been a fair few years since Make You Happy was released so sorry if this question has been mentioned before; I tried searching previously with no success. The Studio/Miami (whatever you guys wanna call it) edit of Make You Happy is one of my favourite songs of The Origin of Love album and I really want to know all the lyrics to the song. The problem for me is that there's a particular part which isn't in the single/main version of MYH which is present in the studio/miami edit. So, towards the end of the song, the main version of MYH (the version with the music video) has the following lyrics which repeat: 'Never gonna give you upNever gonna sort you outWhen's it gonna hit ya?I'm never gonna let you down' alongside the above lyrics you have the main chorus: 'All I wanna do is make you happyAll I wanna do is make you happyAll I wanna do is make you happy' However, in the studio edit you have the main chorus followed by some extra lyrics, I've tried focusing on these extra lyrics to try and make out what Mika's saying, as well as comparing other sites/videos allegedly displaying all the lyrics, and I have the following lyrics, I don't even know if these are correct but this is the closest I've got (anything with a '?' is a part I'm not particularly sure about): Only wanna walk this way, never gonna make you pay, only gonna getcha, i'll never be a real boy gonna make you satisfied never gonna leave your side never gonna go away cause you know you can count on me? only wanna get you up never gonna let this die what's it gonna take me I'll never let you break me take me for that one new chance pick me from what's left of us? keep me as the same style I just wanna get your way I remember seeing a site a few years back which was discussing this, but I don't think it ever came to a conclusion with a popular/agreed set of lyrics, if it did then I can't find it anymore. I've tried to download the song and isolate just the vocals, but there still seems to be some background singing in the way. I've uploaded this version (it's focusing on the lyrics so is gonna sound a bit unusual). Would be great if someone could point me in the right direction as to what these 'hidden' lyrics are. Thanks - Final MIKA_-_Make_You_Happy_(Miami_Edit).wav
  13. New fan from Montreal

    hey! i'm a new fan from Montreal. I discovered mika around 2 months ago. i saw him on a youtube video of "best auditons on the voice". I googled him and since the i've been OBSESSED. I have all his albums and watched every single video I speak french and greek too so talk to meeeee I also like One Direction and Michael jackson

    Hello everyone, I hope you're all doing well I'm still getting used to the new layout It's been too long since I last logged in, I really missed all of you, and I missed MFC! Okay, so here's what I wanted to tell you: As everyone knows, saturday is April 1st. And April 1st means April's Fools Day! Pranks everywhere! I don't know about you, but I loooove pranking people (as long as it's nice, gentle, and harmless pranks of course.) Some of my friends came up with an idea to prank our Mika Basically, here's what we want to do: we want to spread a (harmless) rumor that Mika will be participating in the french "Dance with the stars" ("Dance avec les stars"). We created a twitter account where we will post about this fake news on April 1st. Then we will all tweet Mika asking him if it's true. He will probably be surprised at first, but when we reveal that it's a prank he will certainly laugh! So if you hear about Mika being on "Dance avec les stars", it's not true. It's just us pranking our dear Meeks If you like the idea and want to praticipate, tweet Mika on April 1st asking him if the rumor is true. /!\ IMPORTANT: Pranks should always be kind and harmless. Hurting other people is WRONG, even if it's a "prank". Pranking should always be fun for everyone involved. Please keep this in mind when pranking people this April's Fools Day. Don't be like Mika, who told his family that his granny had died EDIT: We'll be using the hashtag #MikaDALS (DALS stands for "Danse avec les stars" )
  15. Why We Love Mika

    i decided to make a topic dedicated to all the reasons we love and adore Mika, i thought this would be a nice way for us to chat about how and why he makes us happy, laugh and cry.
  16. Mika and dreams

    Hi! I'm a new member! (Uh, Happy New year too????) I'm Italian, so forgive me and my "perfect" english ???? I was at Mika's concert at the Opera di Firenze on the 30th of December 2016. People who were with me know that Mika wrote a monologue about dreams and he read it with the sounds of the Orchestra. I loved this monologue, it reminds me so many important things. I would really like to find the speech. Anyway, what did you think of it? Did you like it? Do you agree with what he said? For me it was just fantastic. Hope you write soon! ❤ - Marty
  17. Hi everyone! Who is going to Verbier Impulse in Switzerland on the 16th of April? We could meet! Have a happy New Year! Mathilde
  18. hey, didn't see a topic for this for 2016 so I decided to update it. Hope you guys don't mind Found an article from Digital Spy from this year:
  19. LGBT MIKA Songs

    As the title suggests, this is a thread for Mika songs that are about mga (multiple gender attraction) or sga (same gender attraction). In other words, LGBT Mika songs. Before starting, I'd just like to say that as a mga person myself, Mika's lyrics are very important to me. Representation in music is extremely important, and I find myself relating to a lot of what Mika sings about. It's also extremely important that Mika isn't afraid to be himself, even in his music. I respect him immensely for that. So yeah, basically what I'd like to say is: thank you Mika for my dreams. You truly are my Good Guy. Alright, now let's get down to business! I'm going to make a list of all LGBT Mika songs, album by album, complete with links and descriptions. Here it goes: Life In Cartoon Motion: Billy Brown: This song is about a married guy who falls in love with another man. Later on in the song we discover that he is bisexual, and very confused. Grace Kelly: While there aren’t any direct mentions of sexuality, this song is very much about people judging MIKA for his flamboyant exterior. He wrote the song about record companies who asked him to change. I'm assuming that part of what they wanted him to change was obviously his mannerisms and style. I think the line “should I bend over just to be put on your shelf” demonstrates this. Stuck In The Middle: MIKA wrote this song about his grandmother, and while he still doesn’t openly mention being gay, there are certain lines that indicate there is something wrong with him in his grandmother’s eyes, a constant source of disagreement between them. I’m thinking of “ours is a family that’s based upon tradition, but with my careless words I tread upon your vision”. Later on in the song he mentions being different from his siblings; “Are five kids better than one who doesn’t lie to become?” I see this as MIKA admitting he is different, but that he won’t lie to please anyone. The Boy Who Knew Too Much: We Are Golden: This one isn’t explicitly about being LGBT but it is definitely about being yourself, unapologetically and freely. The line "we are not what you think we are" gives off very gay vibes. Toy Boy: This song is the story of two young men who are in a relationship, and who are judged by society. It's openly about sga. Blame It On The Girls: MIKA starts the song by speaking of a man who “has looks like books take pages to tell”. I don’t know if MIKA himself ever explained this song, but I have a theory that he might be speaking of himself. The chorus says; “Blame it on the boys who keep hitting on you”. I think that’s pretty clear. Rain: Now I know very well that my explanation is a bit far-fetched, but hear me out - I think Rain is about a same-sex couple who face a problem: one of them is sick of pretending and hiding and wants to come out, while the other still wants to stay closeted. I base my theory on quite a few things. First, the use of the word “ordinary” in the lyrics, several times. “You’re making me more ordinary / This ordinary mind is broken / Trying to be ordinary, was it me who was the fool?” Ordinary here as in straight. You’ll notice that “ordinary” is used in a derogatory way. Also the fact that MIKA says he’s ready for “more than this”, and urges his partner to rethink his position (”you better get back”) Let’s not forget their “broken minds”, and that this is “nothing like the life we wanted”. But the spoken part to me is by far the most revealing: “I’m not angry, don’t know what to do after all the years that I spent you, can’t blame you for the things you said when you used to hide away” Origin Of Love: Emily: Although it's the English version of "Elle Me Dit", it's quite different. The lyrics mention Emily being gay, and that it's okay. Lola: No direct mentions of being mga/sga, but Lola is about a female best friend giving MIKA advice, trying to tell him not to fall in love. MIKA reassures her that he won’t, but it’s not very convincing. Lola is very much the stereotype of the ‘straight friend’ that helps out her male gay best friend. (this is of course a stereotype and it could mean nothing, but it just sounds very gay to me lmao) Elle Me Dit: In MIKA's own words, this song is about the "horrific things a mother can say to her son to get him the f**k out of her house". Part of what she says to him is "t'es défoncé ou t'es gay?" which translates to "are you high or are you gay?". Also she asks him to "be like the other boys, go play ball and be popular", this is pretty revealing too. Underwater: A beautiful love-song, and at one point the lyrics go "flying through a bright blue sky with a space boy high". No Place In Heaven: All She Wants: This one is about a gay man who has problems with his mother, who would prefer him to be straight as to "avoid any spectacle". He even goes as far as marrying a woman to please his mother, but he quickly realizes that his "heart is in peril" and leaves his wife. Good Guys: This song is about the lack of LGBT representation in media, and a heartfelt tribute to MIKA's heroes. The ultime gay anthem, if you ask me. L’amour Fait Ce Qu’il Veut: This is a french song and the title says it all: it literally translates to “love does what it wants”. No comment needed. (oh and i might also mention that ALL the pronouns used in this song to speak of MIKA’s partner are male pronouns) Last Party: A song about Freddie Mercury. No Place In Heaven: A heartbreaking song about MIKA being sga and asking God if this makes him a bad person. “There’s no place in heaven for someone like me”, but then he says “there’s no place in hell”. J’ai Pas Envie: Another french song. Again, the pronouns used are male. Oh Girl You're The Devil: This one is about a girl and a boy who are both LGBT and trying to face society. Good Wife: A gay man is desperately in love with his straight friend, whose wife makes him miserable. The gay man wishes he and his friend could be together. If you guys have any songs to add, or something to point out, please do! Also if you want to discuss a song I'm more than happy to This subject is very important to me. { PS: this article was inspired by this post on tumblr }
  20. Heya everyone! I don't know about you, but I often see people in pictures with Mika and wonder: "who the hell is that?" So I thought it would be interesting to have a thread for people like me, who need to know exactly who Mika is hanging out with Here you can help other MFCers identify people, or submit your own picture and ask "who the heck is that?" I'll be the first to do so: do any of you know who this is? (and is Mika grabbing their butt? )
  21. Hello everyone! Hope you're having a nice day Okay so back in June, when I was in Switzerland to see Mika (so many memories ) I bought his entire discography. This morning I put Life In Cartoon Motion into the CD player so I could listen to it while doing some handiwork in the house, and at the end of Relax... surprise! A women starts taking! I've played the CD before many times, but I guess I always skipped this track? Or I somehow didn't notice the woman talking. In any case, I was surprised. The woman has a thick accent. She says something like: "Same day I went to dress for wedding, same day while I want married, what happened? He go married another girl. When he married another girl I am very very sad I can't walk like (???) my legs, how he married different lady? I no believe. After one month I am sat up in balcony, some bomb come for my eyes, my eyes gone now I have only one eyes. I did not marry any man after that." I'm very confused. Who is this lady? Why is she speaking at the end of Relax? Do you guys have this too or is it just my CD?
  22. what would we do with out Mika?

    have you ever sat down and wondered, what the heck we would b doing if mika didn't exist? I have thought about this before, but I don't have a clue.
  23. whats YOUR top five?

    whats you top five mika songs???
  24. I NEED HELP !

    So I'm in a bit of a pickle right now and I really need help from my fellow MFCrs and I couldn't find a thread for what I needed so I decided to officially make a thread designed to aid MFCrs with anything random : OK Everybody get out your Life in Cartoon Motion CDs and take a look at the lyrics booklet, turn to the page with the Grace Kelly lyrics and PLEASE PLEASE tell me who are the two people standing behind Madonna ( the one with the gold cone bra ) I will post a picture so you understand what I mean, BUT PLEASE, IF ANYONE CAN TELL ME WHO THEY ARE I WILL BE FOREVER IN YOUR DEBT !!! P.S I was thinking the last one is Beyonce because of the hair but I'm really not sure
  25. The Random Song!

    Hi guys this is the first time I am starting a thread so I have no idea what I am doing.... but I was thinking back to how I discovered MIKA and then I remembered coming across this song on my 10th birthday... and being the most random 10 year old ever I loved this song. So I would just like everybody know how much I truly appreciate this song for helping me discover Mika... Link to video:
