MIKA to Donate Proceeds of New Single to Charity

Recommended Posts

Good Guys is so beautiful!!! I don't know how to describe it exactly but every time I listen to this song it gives me this wonderful heartwarming feeling. Love both its lyrics and its melody especially the "some of us in the gutter are looking up at the stars" part :wub2::wub2:

 

Also it's really generous and sweet of Mika to donate the profits to UNICEF!

 

And needless to say that yesterday's performance was excellent!!!:wub2:

I get why it was put with Happy Ending, especially with the choir, sounded very intense! Can't wait to hear what the album version sounds like. I'm not from Italy so I can't download the song (right?) but I'm wondering: do you get the entire song Good Guys as download, or this live performance as a medley with Happy Ending? Or is that a stupid question :aah:

You can download the medley. And it is not live because yesterday in an interview he told that he recorded in a recording studio in the night.

Thanks for your reply! Yes, I heard some differences between the actual live footage and the version that Mika linked to that's on Youtube.. I could hear it wasn't the same recording! This makes sense, thanks again!

Nice song and generous initiative.

Sorry i'm not able to understand the lyrics.

Anyway i know very well lyrics of Happy Ending.

I'm not sure that poor "children of Unicef" are pleased to hear a rich man who sings at them "no hope, no love, no glory, no happy ending" :blink:

 

And Mika should title this song "NO happy ending" to avoid misunderstanding...

A full version I assume?! I think the medley was simply for X Factor and Unicef.

AH really?

 

Obviously Mika did not confirm this but I am 99.8% sure that he is not going to release an album with songs that are half new and half old..

I think it is nice that he quotes a writer who inspires him, it is showing himself through someone else´s words but still making the meaning his own.

 

Love the song, an interesting choice, I'm even more excited to hear this album if that is even possible.

I really love the Good Guys song! It's wonderful that its the new single and fantastic that its for charity. Well done Mika!

But then my heart sinks, it's not available in the UK, only Italy as usual.

Yes, I asked about that, and for various reasons it's only available in Italy, at least for now. But at least they were able to put the medley on youtube so that international fans could hear it. And donate to UNICEF also, if they wish. :thumb_yello:

I thought it was a really nice surprise they put it on Youtube at the same moment he performed it :thumb_yello: It was so frustrating to know he is going to sing his new song and not to find a working streaming to watch it but suddenly it was there and everyone was able to hear it :wub2: (And it's a good idea to direct the traffic to his own channel/to share a good quality version from the beginning.)

Well that's great news anyway. Its a shame it's not available for download in the UK, in the same way that other singles are, because I really really love this new song. It has really gladdened my heart.

let's hope the actual song (= not remix) will be released as a single everywhere at some point. :)

I like it. I agree that there is a bit of a gutter overload and a synonym would be pleasant, but I like the melody and his voice works well in this. It is, in my humble opinion, much better than the staring at the sun snippet. His voice sounds a bit dull in that one.

 

Okay that was it. Crawling back under my rock now.:mf_rosetinted:
