  1. Electric energy in Brooklyn tonight! Mika is so comfortable in his skin and in his songs, and he shared that with us tonight. Some thoughts in no particular order: In the intro, there is a recording of Mika talking all about love: how love created the universe, and lit up the sun, and how the sun created all of us with its yellow light. During this recording the band is all on stage waiting, and you don't see Mika at all, and then he just runs on all at once! Red! Suit! Frilly! Shirt! CURLS!!! And Velcro Shoes???? Dear Jealousy was the second song he played (I think) -- befor

  2. I will post a more in depth review and pictures and videos tomorrow, but I wanted to say 2 things on here tonight. 1. This gig was recorded for a live album and DVD. Look forward to it! 2. On a personal note, I got to meet Mika and it was a really incredible experience. I'm very emotional right now and I'm still letting it all sink in. Excellent gig, will do a full report tomorrow.

  3. My first gig! I guess I picked a killer one too. All the lovely people I met said Mika just had so much extra energy tonight and it was definitely for the live DVD. I was in the front row so I was definitely filmed for that, look out guys... I have never been to such an incredible show. Like it not just because I love Mika so much, he just put on such a great performance and the crowd echoed the energy right back. It was ecstatic. It was more than I was hoping for. I was a complete mixture of emotions all day, and it all came to a boiling point when Mika came to the st

  5. Hellooo! I don’t know if I have much to say that someone else hasn’t already said in much more depth earlier, but I’m really glad I was able to see him on this tour. He was full of energy and gave a great performance- I only wish it could’ve been longer so we could have heard more songs that weren’t just the big hits 😉 Also, it was super cool to be part of the recoding, but I’ll admit it was a little distracting having the camera following him around almost the whole time, especially during Tiny Love I waited at the stage door, but we were near the back so I didn’t get

  6. Its definitely going to be both an album and a DVD. Regarding the live DVD, he mentioned that he just hasn't done one in a long time.

  8. To me, Dear Jealousy sounds like a song from a Broadway musical, especially in the last chorus with the choir. I think this might be my favourite song from the album so far!

  9. Thank you! I think all the warm wishes from MFC members over the years about how they hope I can go to a gig/meet Mika just built up so I could have a truly magical night. But I also think Mika is quite magical too. He just makes good things happen. Definitely all my good luck for the rest of my life was used up at once for this gig, considering how easily I could get things to work out for traveling there too when it could of been very complicated. Thank you, everyone. I feel so thankful and my heart is full.

  10. A first try at the lyrics - corrections and additions are welcome. Blue is a feminine colour Blue is deep and bold Blue is like no other as secret as it's old Blue like the ocean's heart (...) But you're blue (...) Blue for your sons not your daughters Blue not for pleasure but pain Obvious to say that it's okay no matter what life throws at you I will always love the blue in you I don't trust the rainbows that are made by the sun For a friend of many is a friend of none Co

  12. It's going to fantastic, because the set and the new songs he really fabricated into emotions and stories that everyone can relate to in the banter and things he said before playing them. He was also wild onstage, and it was practically a rave during Love Today (?) and We Are Golden because the crowd was just as wild and loving every minute of it.

  14. Hello, everyone! Just a quick report from Cloud Nine -- that's where I am on this morning after the amazingness that was last night! Yes, I am fangirling big time! You'll see some of my photos on my Instagram @dcdeb52 and on the MFC's Insta and stories @mikafanclub Lighting was pretty awful for photos from where I was standing -- at times I felt like *I* was in the spotlight more than Mika! Anyhow, the show was absolutely amazing. Yes, I'm a fan, I'm supposed to say that, but Mika was overflowing with joy last night and it spilled out onto all of

  16. I love the melody, it's more a work of art, more like a poem, than a catchy song - definitely not mainstream, definitely unique, and I agree it reminds me of Ordinary Man - which I also love. It's a song I can't always listen to, not something that you can just hear while doing something else - but some of my most favourite songs ever are the same (for example my all-time-favourite "Music" by John Miles), that's what makes them so special.

  17. Here's what I'm hearing that differs from yours... You and I, we're really, really not so innocent Oh, who gives a s**t about tomorrow I'm living higher than a thousand stars Lying here together stretching and ? i played your game to have this but this is a mess worth fighting for That second verse is pretty hard to make out though, that could be wrong!

  18. There is also Sinfonia Pop (both live CD and DVD) but I guess it's something different for him because he sings with the symphony orchestra... And he probably already forgot about Live at Sadler's Wells (live CD)? Actually I collect CDs and the only live albums I have (and also the only I care about) are from Mika so it's quite strange that according to him he didn't release any.

  19. He said that it's different, because the Montreal one was with an orchestra and this is just a normal show audio wise with the music that sounds more like to what he releases.

  25. Mika for "Au feminin" answers questions "Pour ou Contre" (Pro&Con). He answers questions by saying if he is "for or against"something. Hello it's Mika and today I am with "Au feminin" with my "Pour et Contre". Generally I am against everything :-) Question: Covers of your songs? I am "for" people who do my covers. Because I think it's a big complement. And sometimes it happens that a part of the song that I have not paid attention to is stepping forward. So it's not only a complement but it may be as well an inspiration. It gives me i

  29. Thanks @Irem Aytepe for your try at the lyrics. I think they're not quite right yet, but we're on a good way with your suggestions! When I look at the movements of his lips in the video from that radio station Eriko posted here, I get different results than just from hearing. We got one thing in common, (Amen?) the only problem is that it's wrong and and every single person even you without me (it could be even you even me, not sure) is jealousy I think sara was right with I don't need to be the richest, I know enough is enough (not "the

  31. Last year, Mika shared a recommendation on Twitter, for a stand-up on Netflix. I watched it and a part of it was so inspiring to me that I made it a section of my degree thesis. Because of that, it really stuck with me and in November, when we heard the first snippet of Blue, I immediately thought that he could have taken inspiration from that as well. So, after reading this part of the lyrics "Red like the flame that burns in you but the hottest part of it is blue" my feeling (and happiness!) grew stronger and I went back to the thread of the Vanity Fair event to find what I wrote about it. I

  33. I think he meant the live audio - of course he had live DVDs before, the last one of Mika ❤️ Paris, so I'm sure he remembers that. Ok if he says the orchestra one was different for him and he forgot the Saddler's Wells one, then that's his first live audio CD.

  39. True, but this time I find that he got much more influence for some songs from other singers... It's interesting, indeed, because when I've heard his songs for the first time, I was amazed by how authentic and unique they sounded to me, like no one else. I'm happy too for the new songs, I'm sure there will be some brilliant ones and people will find their favorites soon, not much to wait now I know I am extremely happy for Tomorrow, that song only reminds me of Mika, 100% Mika I rather find that Ice Cream and Tiny Love doesn't fit to the same album... after all SOAO it's abo

  40. Interesting point of view. You don't want to know what I thought when I listened to LICM the first time! Many of the songs sounded so familiar to me, like they were from other well-known artists (Queen, Beatles etc.), but it always was just the sound, not something he had actually used from those songs. To me, that IS the Mika style. I agree that SOAO is fantastic, and I hope it'll be on a deluxe version of the album. But a) I'm glad we're getting more NEW songs, and b) I think the album has a topic, and SOAO doesn't fit to that topic.
