  1. Don't forget that Mika is full of contradictions... But I think I know what he means when he says he is not a romantic person, I can even relate a bit. For example when I hear a romantic song like Perfect by Ed Sheeran, it sounds so cheesy to me and I can't stand it (sorry for those who are fans... ) or when I see a really cheesy gesture in a romantic movie, I wouldn't enjoy such things in real life at all. But on the other hand sometimes I can appreciate things that are kind of romantic. Not sure if I explained it well but I hope you get my idea...
  2. Reading an article about the Czech charts and being surprised by the Mika reference:

    The song features Mika, however it isn't the famous British singer of that name but a local singer. :naughty:

    Unfortunately still not famous enough to be played on the radio... :emot-sad:

  3. A mixture of Last Party and Good Guys, both in my top 3 music videos by Mika (Rain is the third one )...
  4. Hi! Really a nice introduction. Good Guys is also my favourite music video! I have the feeling there are quite a lot of MFCers who work with languages (I study Translation Studies too and I'm not the only one here), it seems it's a common thing among Mika fans...
  5. Do you think Tiny Love is the song Mika mentioned some time ago as he said he wrote a song that consists of different parts and he never wrote a song like that before?
  6. There are a lot of songs on the playlist from some Austrian duo called Mika...
  7. I think it won't be more than 12 on the standard version (if there's a deluxe edition... I hope so!), probably only 10-12.
  8. I guess this is the "little Kylie homage" he mentioned...
  9. A radio station I'm listening to just announced they will play a song by Mika. I sent them Ice Cream weeks ago and they promised to consider it but I'm still expecting Relax or Grace Kelly instead. Then they announced they will talk about ice cream. *gets a little bit excited, maybe there's hope after all* And then they played Grace Kelly... :banghead:

      It's the same old story. Maybe if Mika promoted the single there...again the same old story. Promo in the same places where there's no need, or at least not so much because he is well known :sad:

      :dunno: no why? still  Grace Kelly the new single is Ice Cream uff... maybe when the album go out they played  this song i hope :crossed: @giraffeandy don't worry :emot-sad: 

  10. For once I'll be in the right country but still 400 km away... I need an event in the south the same week.
  11. You can still hear the song, just play the live stream of the show and go back to 7:53!
  12. The song was already released on his last album this year (without Mika): So it isn't brand new, just the collab...
  13. I also think almost 3 minutes is too long... Maybe we could divide the song into more parts with some overlaps to make sure it fits all together?
  14. When a concert is sold out so early they sometimes make an upgrade and move the concert to a bigger venue... At least here they do it quite often if they see the place sold out too quickly.
  15. I don't want to be stressed during the trip so I booked a room in a hotel just 1,5 km from the venue anyway, it's a free reservation so I can cancel it 3 days before... The trip is already getting expensive so I think I don't care anymore. It's for 109 CHF but it's for two so I hope I can find someone to share, I'm in contact with one Czech fan so hopefully I won't travel alone. Otherwise I can offer it to someone here who is interested.
  16. I get it, unfortunately there are less bus lines on Saturday so you don't have so many time options...
  17. Yeah with a car it isn't a problem... So hopefully I won't miss anything when leaving after midnight, the bus station is about 3,5 km from the venue and there's also a night bus or train to get there.
  18. The prices are similar to the hotels, I found just one cheap flat but too far away from the venue...
  19. I planned to stay over one night but apparently Zurich is the most expensive city for living according to The Economist... And unfortunately the hotels really aren't the cheapest.
  20. Finally have my ticket too! As you've already been to a show in Zurich, do you have an idea about the time schedule, when does the show end and how long have you been waiting after the show? I found out that I could leave the night of the concert at 1:30 but I dont want to be in a hurry because of that...
  21. Today Zurich suddenly works even without a code...
  22. I think he is doing it now to promote the new single because this performance looks better on screens and at festivals where he is perfoming just a couple of songs and no everybody in the crowd is a fan... The choreography with the clapping in the middle etc. grabs more attention and it's probably more fun for the general public. I'm pretty sure he won't do that with every song on the tour (at least I hope)...
  23. Now I'm glad I haven't pre-ordered but that's really not fair, it doesn't make sense...
