    #CasaMika 2 - 2017

    Thanks Eriko, I can always count on you to have posted links, lol Right, the instagram live posts only last 24 hours iirc; and thats if they get saved to the Instagram story in the first place. Some people go on Instagram live, and dont save it; so you can't see it again afterward.

    Mika in Italian Press 2016

    I'm American, lol. I ended up googling Andy right after I posted and realized that he and Andy are the same.... I recall Mika mentioning Andy before, I definitely remember that tweet; because I wondered if Andy was his boyfriend when I read it; but I wasnt sure lol. In hindsight, i guess I should have put two and two together a long time ago. I also think I've met Andy at a show; but it was a long time ago, so dont quote me on it. They're very cute together; I'm glad he isn't as secretive anymore.

    Mika in Italian Press 2016

    Thanks alot Eriko, I had to log on, just to thank you, instead of just appreciating you while lurking lol. Lunari, thank you for translating!!! I must be out of the loop-is this the first time Mika has mentioned Andreas by name? I knew they were still together, but I've never known what his name is or what he looked like.

    LGBT MIKA Songs

    Stuck in the Middle has been and continues to be one of my favorite songs, period; and in 8 years, I have never even thought of it from that perspective. I knew it was "about" his grandmother; but I figured she was the protagonist. Your interpretation makes WAY more sense. Iirc (and others have mentioned it in the thread) Rain is a break up letter from when he was a teenager; so I think it's "safe" to assume the song is about guy, i.e. making it a same sex relationship....the letter thing was even used as a focal point in the album art/single art for the track. The "Origin of Love"[the song] is about he and his boyfriend, isn't it? and I do believe that many of the songs on the album are about their relationship; but not every song is "overtly" gay, for example "Kids" is pretty universal I think; and Popular isn't specifically about being gay. I dont speak French, so I hadn't realized L'amour Fair Ce Qu'il Veut and J'ai Pas Envie used male pronouns, thank you for that.

    So....he hasn't played this live yet has he? Is this gonna be one of "those" songs?

    Sheet music issues...

    hey there! I'm a pianist as well so I understand your frustration, unfortunately pop songs are rarely notated as "recorded" so fact of the matter is you're *not* gonna find any sheet music for what MIKA (or Greg, as he's usually playing on the recordings lol) actually play on the recordings. Grace Kelly is popular enough that you may be able to find some sort of fan transcription but obviously thats gonna require searching on your part. When I want to play exactly what MIKA plays, I find it easier to listen to a live performance, especially one that's "stripped" as it's easier to heard each instrument and pick out what voicing are being used on the piano. However, I don't know how well you play by ear, so if I were you, I would purchase or acquire the "official" sheet music, and then do your best to adjust whats printed to what you hear on the records. And specifically for "Blame it on the Girls" the printed sheet music is actually relatively accurate regarding the piano portions; it's just notated a half step up iirc, so if you play it a half step lower you can get pretty close. Relax, Take It Easy is primarily synthesizers and keyboards, so i mean the chords are basically "it" and the riffs are simple melodies, so they should be simple enough to deduce. good luck!!

    Mika in Canadian Press - 2015

    Thanks for translating!! I have to say, I generally try to be uninterested in MIKA's personal life, but his timeline of events between he and his boyfriend always has me curious. So, now I see what he meant he said they'd been together along time, but had broken up.
  9. L'amor Fait Ce Qu'il Veut is the same 4 chords for the entire song: Am//// D7//// G/// G/F#/ Em//// All She Wants (will update, as I haven't got it perfect) Verse & PreChorus F //// //// C//// F//// Chorus Gm//// C7//// F//// Dm////
  10. It's interesting that you mention the whole album being sad, because (Disregarding The Origin of Love which is in the middle in my opinion) 3 of his 4 albums can be viewed as rather depressing in general, depending on what lens you view it through. But for me, this is the only one that is very obviously and overtly sad; The Boy Who Knew Too Much and Life in Cartoon Motion are both layered with subtext that requires you to know about MIKA to really pick up on alot of the "true" meaning. It took me a number of listens to really "get" TBWKTM, but this album just hit me right in the face, it was hard not to be on the verge of tears several times during my first listen. Then again, he is out, and he wasn't for the first two, so that may be the biggest part of it.
  11. extremely unlikely, Technically speaking, he has performed some of the bonus tracks from LICM, but he didn't have as many songs then. I wouldn't expect him to do this one, I'm in the same boat as you regarding Tah Dah (...and Loverboy for that matter); considering when I asked about performing bonus tracks in general (in 2013), he gave me a "surely you jest face!" and then said " well, maybe I'll do Tah Dah" and then never did it, I'd just put this song in the "never to be performed live" pile. But you know, having perused the other threads, I see he played L'amour fait ce qu'il veut, so there may be hope yet.
  12. I sat in the balcony and watched, my photos are absolute drivel, but here are a few of them. ***assuming they'll upload I will say I was very very very surprised he didn't play Stuck in the Middle. He only played keyboard himself on two songs iirc (Elle Me Dit, and Bily Brown). The drummer is new I believe, I didn't recognize him or the guitar player (although I think that was the same guitar player from the Origin of Love-era shows). Overall, I thought the show was much better than his previous shows; the setlist was tighter, the arrangements were an improvement over past live arrangements....it was a greater show than in the past--then again he only comes to LA every two to three years, so one would expect more apparent differences in two years, hahaha He seemed more free to use backing tracks in the performance, which made several songs sound more full; it worked surprisingly well for him. At this point, I can't completely remember the order of the setlist, but: Toy Boy; Grace Kelly; Billy Brown; Relax, Take it Easy; Blue Eyes; We Are Golden; Origin of Love; Underwater; Billy Brown; Talk About You; Good Wife; Good Guys; Last Party; Elle Me Dit someone else can put them in order, ahaha I also think we need a better manner for the MFC to meet up; not saying we should go back to the light-up hearts, but those sure were useful. Some faces I can remember from years past, some I don't. But it was nice seeing everyone regardless. After the show, Mika stood around and signed some stuff and took photos with the people who waited; he was quite the trooper, it was pretty obvious he wanted to go, and he kept asking if we could take group shots, but he took alot of single photos anyway, which was quite nice. The photos wouldn't attach correctly, so I turned to my dropbox instead: The opening DJ https://www.dropbox.com/s/3hcw08fsfvxtyh4/MIKALA15050610.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/ghfs7rtizvpfnuj/MIKALA15050609.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/vz4rs6k50hnd4ce/MIKALA15050611.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/e3x53b3l2gkm8z1/MIKALA15050613.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/rrwlhd4kkide3ld/MIKALA15050614.jpg?dl=0 MIKA https://www.dropbox.com/s/bz1isbmvlww7a4h/MIKALA15050615.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/julrbbfrpka1t3k/MIKALA15050616.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/3lqiw1695p1m0zb/MIKALA15050619.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/mgnonxcr9z7fob7/MIKALA15050618.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/7gvenjscjqd2e4l/MIKALA15050620.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/e4jj2efnebadw6j/MIKALA15050621.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/f3b4v1lljrkrqgi/MIKALA15050622.jpg?dl=0 Here is the entire photofolder, I posted some of the decent looking ones, but should you care to see the rest...: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ytneqt3cx3xtqkr/AACtcvSwTuXNeLJaCRRDqrs_a?dl=0
  13. This is a club-type venue; so it's probably all GA, and then inside you might be able to buy a table for bottle service or something maybe. I can't tell for sure, it seems they switch up the configuration inside depending on the show/event. Also, I'm pretty there were only GA tickets available for purchase, unless the VIP tickets sold out in the first day. I've been thinking about going up there early in the afternoon (like just after noon, maybe even at noon), on the off-chance that he comes by the front before soundcheck or something, but I'm not sure yet. I'm not sure if I want to spend the day standing around up there if he doesn't swing though. At MIKA's last couple of shows there wasn't much of a point to waiting in line for more than an hour or so. At any rate, I plan to be there by 5, maybe 6 at the very latest.
  14. I've never caught any of his periscope broadcasts as they occur, although I see clips are posted here; has anything interested occurred while he streams?
  15. I'm not surprised that he lives with his boyfriend, but it does surprise me that he manages to keep him out of the limelight so, I don't think I even know what the man looks like. Thank you all for transcribing and translating!
