Hi everyone! Here to make the obligatory introductions about myself and how I ended up here today.
I'm a Portuguese girls, 24 years old, Psychology is my profession, and I've been in-and-out as a Mika fan during the past few years - let me explain.
When his music started popping up here in Portugal, I was 15 and I remember very clearly being amazed by Grace Kelly and this new crazy singer that had so much energy and made such positive songs. But Mika was deemed uncool by lots of people, God knows why, and after that first period where I was a huge fan in the making, I sort of moved on and stopped following his work quite so closely. Ugh, influenceable teenagers. He always was on the radio though, so I guess I strayed away from the music, but the music didn't stray away from me.
Fast forward to 20th May 2016 when I went to Rock in Rio Lisbon to see Queen and got the added bonus of a Mika show. I was sort of curious, let's see what this guy has been up to since I last heard him, and boy... was I amazed. From the first song I was hooked all over again and I was loving the new songs, that were perhaps not so new already - I just hadn't been paying close enough attention.
I absolutely love what Mika has been doing ever since that first album, and am I glad that I was there to watch him live and get swept off my feet all over again. I diligently proceeded to get all the albums off Amazon to catch up - and Sinfonia Pop has been my obsession over the past few days.
So here I am, lengthy introduction but I'm glad to be back on the Mika train and hope you'll like to have me here as well!
