Songs covered by Mika and their original versions

Recommended Posts

Huh, wikipedia says he wrote it for Boyzone, but I remember an interview where he strongly implied that they'd recorded it without his knowledge/permission . . . ah, here it is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dZ4AYXlpZyU

His uncomfortable "I'm not gonna talk about it" at 4:15 is hilarious.  :naughty:

 

Oh, thank you so much for this interview!! I haven't seen it before!! Yeah, this reaction.... :thumb_yello:

"The Art of Song" was the best Fairytale, I've been ever told.

 

Now I know more then I knew yesterday...

Now I know more about Mika's history..

 

I just wanted to put here three songs, Mika covered on "The Art of Song"..

 

And I'll be discovering the rest of them in these days..and discovering "history" of MIka.

 

Now each of these songs has its own "Fairytale" for me, Mika's FairyTale"...

 

Mika's covering Elton Joyn - I want love  

 

 

 

Mika's covering Harry Nillson - Everybody's talking

 

 

 

Mika's covering Billy Joel - Piano Man.

 

 

 

 

These fingers, flying on piano keys...

 

And of course Mika is right: "Songs make you remember everything..."

Thank you so much my dear Friend!

And do you know if Mika and other judges on X-Factor were also covering songs?

Let me think...

Usually the judges on X Factor perform their own songs, but not covers...

 

I have a question for you too.

Do you know some professional famous singer who did the cover of Mika's song?

 

Well - now we are not exactly following the title of your topic.

But I love discovering the new things and breaking the rules.

It makes life more interesting...

 

This year there was a guy at X Factor Italy performing Grace Kelly

I like his cover - do you?

 

Hm... I searched, but didn't find anything.

Then let's discover!!  :thumb_yello:

 

Thank you, I really liked this cover. He didn't fit into the rhythm at the beginning, but it's ok, happens sometimes.

And his voice is amazing!
