I just registered on MFC en since I am a obedient girl, I'm coming to say hello.
I am a relatively new Mika fan, since about 1 year (already???). Obviously, I already knew about Mika before that (who don't since 2007....) but I wasn't particularly interested in him even if I knew and liked some of his songs.
Last year, I heard Boum Boum Boum and I loved this song so I did some research and was surprised to learn it was by Mika (At the time, I thought he only sang in English) and also to learn he was the author of Elle me dit that I quite liked too. But I still wasn't a fan.
That was just before the beginning of The Voice season 5 in France and knowing there was Mika in the jury and just being curious, I decided to watch the 1st episode. That was my end....I falled in love with his personality eccentric and lovable. Then, I decided to learn more about his songs. At first, I loved melodies and rhythms (speaking of that, I have this strange phenomenon where, when I listen a new (or unknown to me) song by Mika, at first, I just kind of like it but the more I listen to it, the more I like it (ex: Origin of Love , Underwater, Over my shoulder, I See You)...weird...). And then, I listened lyrics and discovered their poetry and sensitivity. That when I became a fan.
Since then, I have often lurked around here since you seemed to be the most reliable source of info on Mika but never dared to take the step of registering.
I think that enough chatting for the moment so I will stop there.
PS: Sorry if there is syntax or orthographic errors...I'm not a native and my English is less than perfect.
