    Mika's collaboration with LP

    Wow what a great song! I haven't heard of LP before but because of this collaboration I have listened to more music from LP and I like the unique sound! Thank you Mika for helping me discover a new artist to listen to! ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Hi Rocรญo, welcome to the MFC! Your story is basically the same as mine, I knew Mika since the beginning too but only his classic hits from early in his career. I joined a month ago and now I am listening to his newer songs but I haven't listened to any of the songs from No Place In Heaven yet as I'm becoming more familiar with the Origin Of Love album first! Your English seems fine to me and the forum becomes easy to use after using for a week or so! Enjoy all the content on here!

    Hello de Paris

    Welcome Karine ๐Ÿค— My favourite Mika song is Relax. You've come to the right place as a Mika fan as there is plenty of content on here to keep you informed about all his work! Enjoy and see you around
  4. At the moment Make You Happy is probably my least favorite Mika song but maybe I'll grow to like it like you did! And I'm very much looking forward to listening to the symphonic album, Is it better to get the Sinfonia Pop DVD with the two CD's or the No Place In Heaven Special Edition with the "Et L'Orchestre Symphonique De Montreal" disc? or both? ๐Ÿค”
  5. Thanks for posting this fan review thread Sabine! ๐Ÿ˜ I have spent the past few hours reading through the whole thread and it is so nice to see so many different reactions, it seems everyone has there own favorites! I'm sure they will all change within time. I'm looking forward to reading the other discussions and also will search up threads for the reviews of Mika's other albums to see what people thought. ๐Ÿง
  6. Hey everyone! Since the first post I wrote on here just over a month ago I have been spoiled with Mika content to explore and what a wonderful time I am having! ๐Ÿคฉ I appreciate all the comments on the post, they made me feel very welcome ๐Ÿค— Some of you guys wanted to know my thoughts on his newer albums, well they are new to me! So over the past few days I have been listening to The Origin Of Love album and you guys were right when you said it has a different sound but still captured Mika's style. So the first song on the album is Origin Of Love. I like the uniqueness of this song however I would have preferred less effects on the vocals. I really the like the instrumental on this track. Lola is next and I really like this song, it is very chill and a happy sounding song, probably one of my favorites on the album at the moment. Stardust is a nice song, it sounds like it should be a song in the film Wreck It Ralph, does anyone else think this? There is a brilliant remix of this song on the deluxe disc of the album also. Make You Happy isn't my cup of tea to be honest, but I like the acoustic version on the deluxe disc. Underwater, what a beautiful song. I already heard it from one of Mika's most recent performances and at first I thought he was gonna sing Set Fire To The Rain by Adele because the Piano sounds kinda similar at the start, definitely one of my favorites on the album. Overrated, I heard a demo of this song from 2007 and I really liked it, this new version sounds like a club remix! I like this song but I prefer the acoustic sound of this song. Kids, this song isn't one of my favorites, it's nice but I don't think it stands out on the album. Love You When I'm Drunk, is a fun song, I really like the verses, the acoustic version is also great. Step With Me, includes a unnamed female vocalist? It's a nice calm song but again not one of my favourites. Popular Song, I was already familiar with the version he did with Ariana Grande and I never really liked that version. I actually like the one on the album better but it's weird hearing Mika rap. Emily, I absolutely love this song, it is definitely my favorite on the album, and probably one of my favorite Mika songs at the moment. It actually made me cry ๐Ÿ˜ญ because I can relate to the song even though my name isn't Emily. The french version Elle Me Dit is also nice, I might try to learn the words to improve my french.๐Ÿ˜„ Heroes, I really like the meaning of this song, I watched the track by track video with Mika talking about this song and apparently he was told not to include this song on the album, I'm glad he did because it is lyrically one of my favourites. Celebrate, I do like this song, this song sounds like it should be on Wreck It Ralph aswell! I don't like the sound of the chorus so much but I really like the sound of the verses and the last part of the song where he sings "I wanna go home" over the chorus. I don't like the remix of this song on the deluxe disc. The last song I would say is Tah Dah which is on the deluxe disc, I'm confused because they could have just swapped the Make You Happy remix on the standard disc with Tah Dah. I like the circus references, it is a solid song, perfect production. Has he performed it live? I can't find any videos on YouTube. All the acoustic tracks on the deluxe discs are brilliant, I must admit I think Mika is the best acoustic performer I've ever heard, his voice just suits it so much and the fact that he plays the piano on the tracks aswell shows how talented he is. Listening to this album was wonderful and has made me very excited for No Place In Heaven which I'll probably listen to next month as I'll get a copy for my birthday I would love to know what you guys thought of the album when it came out and your favorite songs. I would say my Top 5 at the moment are Emily, Underwater, Tah Dah, Lola and Stardust.

    I wrote an article about Casa Mika!

    This was a very interesting read! I didn't know Mika had a TV show in Italy๐Ÿ˜ฎ so I'm looking forward to watching! Does anyone have a link to the thread of episodes with English subtitles?
  8. Hey everyone! Since my introduction post I have been collecting some Mika things! (the best thing I have got so far is a promo CD for Blame It On The Girls๐Ÿ™Œ) eBay has been the best choice for Mika stuff so far even though there isn't much on there! Anyway I bought a Mika t-shirt which the seller said is official and "with tags" even though I don't think there is any tags! The image on the shirt doesn't look in the best of quality The shirt label is also from a brand "fruit of the loom" and I'm not sure Mika merchandise is made from this company... So if any of you guys have a Mika t shirt like this one I have can you tell me if the one I have bought is official or a fake! I have left some pictures of the shirt below still sealed in its packaging.

    Hi From England!

    Apologies, I thought you were Sophie ๐Ÿ˜• I will contact her when I can work out what I'm gonna buy! Yeah there is some stuff from international sellers but the postage costs seem quite high!

    Hi From England!

    This version?
  11. Gemz

    Hi From England!

    Yes I have seen there is a 2 CD album with the live audio and also a bonus song on the first disk (Lover Boy) so I will be buying that for sure!

    Hi From England!

    Will Do! I have heard a few from Origin Of Love as I watched his performance from "Finale Top14". I liked the sound of Emily (Elle Me Dit) but was different to his earlier stuff!

    Hi From England!

    Wow a tour and album in 2019! That is not far away at all! Now I can spend time waiting by listening to Mika's other albums and reading all the threads on here! Awesome

    Hi From England!

    Thanks Sophie! I have actually seen your items on eBay and I may consider getting some of the stuff from you as your like the only person on eBay selling Mika merchandise! Would it be possible if you did some deals with the items maybe with the CD singles?! I like the look of those fabric prints too but I feel they are probably too big to go on my wall!

    Hi From England!

    Hi Everyone! I feel very late to the party on this Mika fan page as it doesn't seem very active at the moment! But anyway... I have been a fan of Mika since he began in 2007, my parents got me his first album "Life In A Cartoon Motion" and this was the first album I had owned myself and I would listen to it all the time! I was 7 years old at this point and I remember Mika being very popular here in England, all of his singles from his first album were hits. However I never heard about him after another successful hit of "We Are Golden". Since I was fairly young at the time I was moving on to other artists to listen to and didn't know he released more music as they did not do very well in the UK. Now I am 18 years old and since I really dislike a lot of today's mainstream music I went through my music collection and found my Mika album and decided to do some research on him. I realized he hasn't stopped releasing music. I got nostalgia listening to his first album again, especially listening to my favorite Mika song at the moment "Relax Take It Easy". I recently got his second album which is similar in some ways to his first album, I really like "Rain" and I didn't even realise it was released in the UK! I know he has two more albums so I will listen to them too after I get more familiar with his second album. Since I have a hobby of collecting CD singles, Vinyl Records and any other music merchandise from music artists I like, I am now excited to start collecting Mika merchandise from over the years. I really like the golden vinyl for his "We Are Golden" single. Please can you suggest any websites for this stuff, apart from eBay as they barely have anything, also Mika's shop doesn't work?! I'm gutted that I haven't seen him on tour and I've seen a few live performances on YouTube and he sounds amazing live. But next time he does tour, I'm there! It is unfortunate as it seems Mika is forgotten about in England and now he is only really popular in France, making him very underrated! I hope I didn't ramble on too much, I have a lot of things I want to discuss about Mika so hopefully I can learn a lot from these forums! Thanks for reading, Gemma.
