  1. Hi Gabs, nice to meet you and welcome to the MFC 😊 I'm Cristina and I'm also attending the concert in Livorno tomorrow! You can find or ask for info here: Is this your first Mika concert? _________________________________________________________________________________ Ciao Gabs, piacere di conoscerti e benvenut* nel MFC 😊 Io sono Cristina e anche io domani andrò al concerto di Livorno. Puoi trovare informazioni a riguardo o fare altre domande in questo thread: È il primo concerto di Mika a cui vai?
  2. I imagined it plays with the concepts of giant and tiny of the song. Like a paradox. It is a giant creature whose name is Tiny. A representation of ourselves who are giants when we have a tiny love. But I don't know, maybe I'm completely wrong πŸ˜‚
  3. I'm also among those who hope he will NOT sing the Italian version at gigs πŸ˜† Not so much because of the translation, but rather because of the meter (if this is the right term) resulting. To my ears, it simply does not fit. Now, I am not an expert of musical composition, but I have always heard that writing songs in Italian is quite difficult from a technical point of view, because words are mainly stressed on their penultimate or antepenultimate syllables. There are obviously exceptions, but foreign songs translated into Italian always sound strange, because the music was not intended to accompany Italian words. I think it would have been different if he had composed a song conceived in Italian from the start. At least, this is my personal opinion. If he wants to sing it in Italian, I hope it will be only a little part, as he does for Stardust for example. Otherwise, I will miss the atmosphere of Tomorrow others talked about above. But in the end, he decides what to sing, so I will simply have to accept it πŸ˜ƒ
  4. I bought the CD the same day of the release.
  5. Great idea! These are my lists: A list: - Tiny Love (+ reprise) - Dear Jealousy - Paloma - Tomorrow - Platform Ballerinas - Blue B list: - Sanremo - Ready To Call This Love - I Went To The Hell Last Night - Stay High C list: - Ice Cream - Cry (works in progress for this one) I really can't stop listening to this album. As for the track order, I'm not really used to listen to an album from start to finish as it is made, I always play it in shuffle mode so that every time it is a surprise!
  6. I have to admit that the first time I listened to Blue, it kinda bored me. But now it's one of my favourites. I need it especially when I get stressed out, it manages to soothe me. I like both the lyrics and his voice, particularly the way he sings "I will always love the blue in you"... I'm always in heaven I really hope to listen to this song live!
  7. Personally, I relate a lot to this song. Just to make a few examples, I never wear makeup or heels. I am more comfortable with casual clothing and two of my best friends never wear dresses or skirts. I don't even have a boyfriend. And although for me this is not a problem, society does still think differently. Not all that often, but I also have been told to do this or that because it is more "feminine", whatever this means. I have nothing against people who decide to act differently from me, but I do not want to be blamed for my own choices. And it is often women who utter these sentences. I know women who can't leave their home without makeup, otherwise they do not consider themselves decent enough to be looked at or do not want to appear in photos. And now, with the raise of Instagram, everyone takes pictures in carefully studied poses to be up to the ones posted by the influencers. While I prefer the most spontaneous ones. At least, this has been my experience so far. So, to me, this song isn't saying that this different girl is better than the others, but that she is not inferior to them just for making different choices. Feel free to be yourself. On the other side, the thought that he was not talking about a "real" girl at all also hit me. Especially when I listened to the line "Don't believe everything you see". But who knows? I like the fact that different meanings can be found in a song. As for mentioning the kitchen, I haven't paid attention to it at the beginning. But after some thoughts I believe it may be a casual choice, like this word fits better in the line compared to other rooms names. And afterall, we often see Mika himself in kitchens, cooking and enjoying himself, so I do not think it was intended to have a negative connotation. Whenever I am listening to this song, I find myself smiling and wanting to move and be happy because life is beautiful. But I understand that everyone has different opinions and reactions and it is ok too
  8. I already love this song. I can't stop listening to it or singing it in my head. The lyrics are so intense. I also watched and rewatched the music video. I still don't get all the hidden meanings, but I find it very poetic. I'm just starting to come up with my interpretation, meanwhile I'm enjoying reading your versions. So many wonderful thoughts about it.
  9. Hello nice to meet you i'm Paola

  10. Hi! Yeah, I've noticed this widespread passion for languages. It's so wonderful to be able to understand what people from other countries are saying and talk to them πŸ˜ƒ Good luck with your studies!
  11. Thank you very much for your help, Sara
  12. Thank you both for your welcome! 😊
  13. Hello everyone! I'm Cristina, 26 and Italian. I have been reading this forum for a while now (a wealth of precious information) and finally decided to officially join MFC. Nice to meet you all! I discovered Mika 4 years ago, when he was a guest on an Italian TV show and sang Good Guys to promote NPIN. I had obviously already heard some of his famous songs like Grace Kelly, Relax or Underwater (without really knowing who the author was), but that night something magical happened and I simply fell in love with him and his way of making music. I personally find the video of Good Guys one of the most beautiful ever made. Apart from listening to all his albums (too many favourites songs), I also started watching every interview I could find online. I could listen to him talking for hours, he always has something clever to say (and often also funny). Having graduated in Translating and Interpreting, I also particularly appreciate his multicultural background and his versatility with languages. I wish I could be as fluent in English as he is in Italian! I already managed to see him perform live twice, in Genoa during the Heaven Tour and in Florence for one of his symphonic concerts. And now I can't wait to see him again in this Revelation Tour. Already got my tickets! Well, I think I have written enough for now. Even if I am usually not comfortable with social networks, I am sure I will have a very good time here 😊 P.S. Apologies in advance for any mistake I may have made. Even if I work with English every day, I am not a native speaker. But I am always happy to improve and learn new things, so feel free to correct me if necessary
