Oh, nevermind; seems I had just not reached the end of the thread, where the more recent stuff was, lol...sorry about that. XD Anyway, here's something I just posted to the fanart gallery, that was done for the MIKA contest over on FB, which was about how his music makes you feel...I feel so many things when I listen, depending on the song, but I wanted to focus on this particular song, because hubby and I were just at Pride here in Norway, and it was the most wonderful, loving, welcoming, freeing experience we've had in so long, and we both needed it badly, due to the depressing way the world seems to be going right now. "We Are Golden" just really summed up how we both felt at Pride, with rainbows painted on us, golden glitter in our hair, and an ocean of dancing, singing, parading, happy, carefree, beautiful people of all ages all around us.

That song also takes hubby and I straight back to the 80's (when we were crazy teens), so in many ways it makes us feel young again, and we really can't thank MIKA enough for that, as well as for all the rest of his wonderful music. <3  Also, the part about "not giving a damn about the family you come from" holds true for me, because I had to cut ties with my very bigoted family, and they would never be caught dead at Pride...Their loss, because I have a new family now, made up of all of my friends, many of which are LGBTQ+, and Pride felt more like a family reunion to me. (Also, I love magpies, the Latin name of which is "Pica Pica", and I love glitter and rainbows, so I just had to draw MIKA as a magpie, as the song mentions, holding the Pride flag, and wearing the same necklace, bracelet, watch and hat that I spotted in various photos of him!) ;)
