dcdeb Posted July 20, 2007 Share Posted July 20, 2007 I was excited at first, thinking this would be a nice review, but... sigh... Mika - Big Girls (You Are Beautiful) (Island) Sarah Walters 19/ 7/2007 WITH his own corner fought and his success secured without giving in to the pressure of the pop pickers, Mika's looking for other corners to fight. That's 'fight' in the sense of 'telling them politely in a four-minute jolly ditty why other oppressed groups in society should be respected'. It is, much like the rest of his work, firmly sat in the disco kitsch camp, lots of bobbing rhythms and crowd exciting choruses. But, urgh! What a horrid, sanctimonious piece of nonsense it is. If the fat girls corner is on the look out for an anthem to soundtrack their struggle for equality, we can only hope they pick something with a bit more attitude than this. http://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/entertainment/music/single_reviews/s/1011/1011712_mika__big_girls_you_are_beautiful_island.html Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
