Songs covered by Mika and their original versions

I love to listen to Mika's version of another artist's songs He sings them in completely different way, but we can still follow the conception of a song.

 

And this makes them sound like something new, just invented by Mika. And I love to observe the transformation of a song.

 

So, I decided to gather here all other singers songs covered by Mika and also put an original version wherever it's possible.

 

It would be amazing to do this with your help, guys!  :thumb_yello:

 

If this kind of Thread already exists, please tell me.

 

Because I found only  thread, discussing how people covered Mika's song, but not how Mika did this by himself.

 

Ok, let's begin with some of my favorite Mika's covers  :wink2:

 

 

Original version:

We have a couple threads about Covers Mika has done:

http://www.mikafanclub.com/topic/25784-covers-mika-has-done/?hl=covers

http://www.mikafanclub.com/topic/19065-covers/?hl=covers

 

But since they are old threads, we could gather all covers here, it's a good idea, thanks.

Journey - Don't stop believin

George Michael - Faith 

Jacson 5 - I want you back

Billy Joel - Piano man                                        

Harry Nilsson - Everybody's talkin

Depeche mode - Just can't get enough

 

I think Piano man is my favorite :)

Could you give me a link please, so that I can listen to this cover? Because I found only 40-seconds lasting Mika's cover on YouTube.

Oh, about Poker Face...

 

There was somewhere a video where Mika plays it on piano.

 

Did anyone see it?
