  1. Hello fellow MIKA lovers. As we have seen during his past album releases The Boy Who Knew To Much - 2009 Origin of Love - 2012 No Place in Heaven - 2015 It have been 3 years in between 3 out of 4 of his official albums. Does anyone think he will release one this year, or is he completely done with producing music? And in that case, what does his record company think of that? And if he releases an album, the record label do require him to do some concerts right? Saw on of MIKAs episodes from his italian TV show 'Casa Mika' or something that he said he was a former 'music artist' in one of the Taxi driver episodes. Would appreciate any kinds of answers to these questions. Love you all ❤
  2. Mika will feature on a Dalida tribute album by the famous trumpet player and composer Ibrahim Maalouf. For the album, released on November 17th, Mika covered the song Salma Ya Salama. This is originally an Egyptian song, composed by musician Sayed Darwish for the 1919 play Qulu lu, according to Wikipedia. The lyrics are by Egyptian poet Badi' Khairi. In 1977, Dalida covered it in both Egyptian Arabic and French. Dalida's version can he heard here. More info about this album can be found here.
  3. It's just a suggestion but about a month ago I took part in a fan survey related to another singer I used to listen to a lot when I was younger and I though it would be really interesting if there would be something similar on MFC as I'm really curious what the results would be... The idea of the survey was that everyone had to rate every album, song (even unreleased songs) and music video of the artist from 1 to 10. It was interesting to see the results and I would like to do something similar here, I can even create the survey, but I wanted to ask first if you would be interested in it or not. I saw there's already a poll related to favorite songs on NPIH, but I haven't found a general one...
  4. As the title suggests, this is a thread for Mika songs that are about mga (multiple gender attraction) or sga (same gender attraction). In other words, LGBT Mika songs. Before starting, I'd just like to say that as a mga person myself, Mika's lyrics are very important to me. Representation in music is extremely important, and I find myself relating to a lot of what Mika sings about. It's also extremely important that Mika isn't afraid to be himself, even in his music. I respect him immensely for that. So yeah, basically what I'd like to say is: thank you Mika for my dreams. You truly are my Good Guy. Alright, now let's get down to business! I'm going to make a list of all LGBT Mika songs, album by album, complete with links and descriptions. Here it goes: Life In Cartoon Motion: Billy Brown: This song is about a married guy who falls in love with another man. Later on in the song we discover that he is bisexual, and very confused. Grace Kelly: While there aren’t any direct mentions of sexuality, this song is very much about people judging MIKA for his flamboyant exterior. He wrote the song about record companies who asked him to change. I'm assuming that part of what they wanted him to change was obviously his mannerisms and style. I think the line “should I bend over just to be put on your shelf” demonstrates this. Stuck In The Middle: MIKA wrote this song about his grandmother, and while he still doesn’t openly mention being gay, there are certain lines that indicate there is something wrong with him in his grandmother’s eyes, a constant source of disagreement between them. I’m thinking of “ours is a family that’s based upon tradition, but with my careless words I tread upon your vision”. Later on in the song he mentions being different from his siblings; “Are five kids better than one who doesn’t lie to become?” I see this as MIKA admitting he is different, but that he won’t lie to please anyone. The Boy Who Knew Too Much: We Are Golden: This one isn’t explicitly about being LGBT but it is definitely about being yourself, unapologetically and freely. The line "we are not what you think we are" gives off very gay vibes. Toy Boy: This song is the story of two young men who are in a relationship, and who are judged by society. It's openly about sga. Blame It On The Girls: MIKA starts the song by speaking of a man who “has looks like books take pages to tell”. I don’t know if MIKA himself ever explained this song, but I have a theory that he might be speaking of himself. The chorus says; “Blame it on the boys who keep hitting on you”. I think that’s pretty clear. Rain: Now I know very well that my explanation is a bit far-fetched, but hear me out - I think Rain is about a same-sex couple who face a problem: one of them is sick of pretending and hiding and wants to come out, while the other still wants to stay closeted. I base my theory on quite a few things. First, the use of the word “ordinary” in the lyrics, several times. “You’re making me more ordinary / This ordinary mind is broken / Trying to be ordinary, was it me who was the fool?” Ordinary here as in straight. You’ll notice that “ordinary” is used in a derogatory way. Also the fact that MIKA says he’s ready for “more than this”, and urges his partner to rethink his position (”you better get back”) Let’s not forget their “broken minds”, and that this is “nothing like the life we wanted”. But the spoken part to me is by far the most revealing: “I’m not angry, don’t know what to do after all the years that I spent you, can’t blame you for the things you said when you used to hide away” Origin Of Love: Emily: Although it's the English version of "Elle Me Dit", it's quite different. The lyrics mention Emily being gay, and that it's okay. Lola: No direct mentions of being mga/sga, but Lola is about a female best friend giving MIKA advice, trying to tell him not to fall in love. MIKA reassures her that he won’t, but it’s not very convincing. Lola is very much the stereotype of the ‘straight friend’ that helps out her male gay best friend. (this is of course a stereotype and it could mean nothing, but it just sounds very gay to me lmao) Elle Me Dit: In MIKA's own words, this song is about the "horrific things a mother can say to her son to get him the f**k out of her house". Part of what she says to him is "t'es défoncé ou t'es gay?" which translates to "are you high or are you gay?". Also she asks him to "be like the other boys, go play ball and be popular", this is pretty revealing too. Underwater: A beautiful love-song, and at one point the lyrics go "flying through a bright blue sky with a space boy high". No Place In Heaven: All She Wants: This one is about a gay man who has problems with his mother, who would prefer him to be straight as to "avoid any spectacle". He even goes as far as marrying a woman to please his mother, but he quickly realizes that his "heart is in peril" and leaves his wife. Good Guys: This song is about the lack of LGBT representation in media, and a heartfelt tribute to MIKA's heroes. The ultime gay anthem, if you ask me. L’amour Fait Ce Qu’il Veut: This is a french song and the title says it all: it literally translates to “love does what it wants”. No comment needed. (oh and i might also mention that ALL the pronouns used in this song to speak of MIKA’s partner are male pronouns) Last Party: A song about Freddie Mercury. No Place In Heaven: A heartbreaking song about MIKA being sga and asking God if this makes him a bad person. “There’s no place in heaven for someone like me”, but then he says “there’s no place in hell”. J’ai Pas Envie: Another french song. Again, the pronouns used are male. Oh Girl You're The Devil: This one is about a girl and a boy who are both LGBT and trying to face society. Good Wife: A gay man is desperately in love with his straight friend, whose wife makes him miserable. The gay man wishes he and his friend could be together. If you guys have any songs to add, or something to point out, please do! Also if you want to discuss a song I'm more than happy to This subject is very important to me. { PS: this article was inspired by this post on tumblr }
  5. whats you top five mika songs???
  6. I saw my earlier 'vote your favourite new song' tread being bumped and thought it would be a good idea to create a poll for you to choose your 3 favourite tracks from the whole album The only problem is that we have 18 songs but only 16 options I can put for voting. So, I have put EMD/ Emily as one and I am not listing Popular as it is hugely based on a song from a musical. (However, I will create another thread in a minute where I'll ask you to choose 2 songs you think would have been the best singles to promote the album with, to which I will add Popular.) So, please choose no more than 3 songs on TOOL you think sound the most awesome/ beautiful / amazing .
  7. So, as promised, I am coming back with another poll where you can choose, if you want, the 2 songs you believe would have been the best singles to promote the album with. That is subjective, of course, so perhaps the best idea is to think of the songs you can imagine your local radio stations playing from this album. We have 18 songs but only 16 options I can put for voting. So, I decided not to include L’amour dans le mauvais temps and Un soleil mal lune (both of which I really like though) as they would make an unlikely single, IMO, especially internationally.
  8. Saw a thread like this on another forum, and thought it would be interesting to see what people come up with on here. I'll start:
  9. Hey guys, I posted a cover done I have done (Grace Kelly) a few weeks ago here and received real nice and genuine reviews:) Recently recorded some nice chinese songs and thought of introducing it to you guys who might not have heard them before! Maybe you will like it, who knows? Music transcend all boundaries:)
  10. i was just thinking,if you could get Mika to cover any song, what would it be, and why? i don't know if this thread has already been posted, but if so, sorry! Mika, we know you read this, so take these hints!!!!! SONGS I THINK MIKA SHOULD COVER John Lennon - Imagine Ben Folds - Not The Same The Dresden Dolls - Coin Operated Boy The Hush Sound - Lighthouse oh, yeah, and i've got a challenge, try and make Bieber song sound good
  11. i was just wondering if any of you guys play any music yourself, sing anything, have written any songs or maybe even just getting lessons, I mean, seriously, gotta be one out there! I, my friends, are currently doing singing lessons with Marcie Jones (she was, like, a pop star from like, the jurassic era, but she still sings), and have written a few songs my self, with some favourites being Epidemic Stupid and Even Steven! Kinda also looking for a few stage names, because really, Eleanor Atkins is a brain-numbingly boring name, probably something to do with food, preferably sweet food, or a cool shortening of the name! anyway, 'nuff bout me, i wanna hear about you!! big cheesy smiles and an overdose of random smilies:mf_lustslow: hope to see some awesome replies! see ya!

  14. Hi guys... I'm Jelena, I'm from Serbia as you can see and I'm 17. I'm a big Mika fan and I know all his songs by heart and I can't wait for July and Exit to finally go and see him perform live. Also, I'm a vampire fan. I love to read, listen to music, hang with my friends, write etc. xD If you have any questions, feel free to ask. :)
  15. Hello The name says it all, really. I am looking for some new music - songs and artists. I don't know where to start so I thought, What a better place than on here! So, can anyone recommend any bands/artists/songs? Please reply Alice x
  16. Hey everybody. Got a second to listen to my story? As I said on the We Are Golden thread, I have a certain connection to this song, and I know that I will have an even strong one once I hear the song in it's entirity. Here we go..... So...... I remember the first time I saw the new vlog about the new music. I remember seeing the gospel choir singing We Are Golden, and crying. They sounded so beautiful, and the lyrics were so meaningful to me. "No giving up when youre young and you want some" I know alot of you have been so kind as to check out my website and my youtube, and to comment, subscribe and give me feedback. All of it is greatly appreciated. Still, there comes a point where you have a dream SO big, a passion so feirce, and self motivation so strong, that you find the need to sit down and tell yourself: This is what I want. This is whats right for me. I will so anything to reach it. It is quite difficult when you have such a dream and no idea where to go, or no outlets to take it to. For the past year or so, I have been writing my own music and covering music with the voice I taught myself to use and the piano I taught myself to play. Im just not sure where to turn anymore. I have been trying to advertise myself by twittering my website, sharing the word in public places by word of mouth, handing out my youtube links to family, friends, and towns members, going to live bands in my area and asking to sing with them before they pack up, performing at my local school and childrens get-togethers, and any other way to get my name exposed. There has come points where I am not fully supported by those around me or even myself, and what I am doing is looked at as Not In The Norm. I have been criticize for being a fan of Mika, Queen, The Beatles....Other bands that not many people my age are into. Sometimes it gets hard to say I Dont Care and to keep going, especially when you have the feeling that no one knows your name. All I need are outlets, ways to get myself known. I have tried through twitter, email and other ways to get my story to Mika, and I never seem to be able to. I once had a dream one night after I spent the entire day writing, making demos, and being quite stressed out. I fell asleep late, and kept hearing the lyrics to We Are Golden in my head. I heard the ones that we know so far, and the rest only they were very cloudy. However, I just KNEW that they were important to mys situation, and would affect me in a positive way. All I want to do is make music. For the rest of my life, I want to wake up and be able to say that I did this for myself, I got here as the result of my own hard work, and I get to do this for the rest of my life. A few months ago I was in a state where I didnt think that I was goign to get anywhere with my music. The new vlogs came out, and I heard Mika telling me this. "No giving up when youre young and you want some" I thought, he did it. He was young and he got to where he is today. So I shouldnt give up either. SOOOOOOO I feel that when We Are Golden comes out, it will really mean alot to me and other young people who have a passion for something or a dream. I know for a fact that the first time I hear this song I will cry. I cried when I heard the one line in the vlog, and I know FOR A FACT that this song is going to change the way I look at my life quite a bit. I know just from hearing this line that I need to put behind me all the.... Unanswered phone calls from agents The fallen-through plans with could-be producers The incidents that prevented me from getting to that small, garage studio owned by a friend The negative comments on youtube The people who dont think music is a good path to take in life My peers who dont understand what it means to have a passion And everything else. So please, when you hear this song, keep in mind all the young people in the world with a strong dream and no idea where to go next. And to all of you like me, whether it be with music, fashion, art, medicine, ANYTHING.....remember that is we want it enough and work hard enough, we will get there. REMEMBER that there should be no giving up when youre young and you want some. thanks for listening everybody, it is greatly appreciated. I just really felt like I needed somewhere to share my story, and Id love to hear what you have to say peace,love,music... -sAmMy ;D
  17. Hey Mika Fans! I was on my Twitter page when I saw that Mika had posted a tweet saying that his BIOTG Video was on YouTube. So I went on and found the BIOTG music video. Here is the link: . Enjoy! I know I did! Z.

  19. Hi everyone! Well, I have to admit, I have two favorite singers: Mika and Taylor Swift. I've been her fan for two years, is it? Something like that. And I feel so identified with her music, her lyrics. What she says in her songs is similar to what I sometimes feel and she knows exactly how to put it in a song. Who else is a fan of her music?
  20. RAIN This is what I have so far Riff/chorus D C# G G D C# G / G D C# F# F# D C# F# Chords Still Working on it. LONELY ALCOHOLIC Chords I'm think that they're C major (b) A minor © D minor (b) G major. Something sounds a little off, so if anyone knows what's wrong let me know.
  21. Well, you can tell here what song you're listening. For example: MGMT-Electric Feel
