Sound of an Orchestra, Lyrics & Discussion

Recommended Posts

Last song of the year 2018; but the first steps of the 2019 album!

SOUND OF AN ORCHESTRA

MIKA

 

you lower your hand clarinet will play 

raise it back up 

and it flies away 

when you smile violins will soar

when you move your legs a timpany will roar

 

I can hear it , I can hear it,  I can hear it , I swear

all the music you’re provoking, filling up the air

 

Its getting louder

 

this is the sound of an orchestra

I can hear it playin’ everywhere that you are

there is a sound for everything you do

this is the sound of my love for you

listen to the sound of my love for you

 

You don’t even know everything I hear

every move, every note, everytime you’re near

if I close my eyes I promise I can see

a hundred people playing and it’s just for me

 

I can hear it , I can hear it,  I can hear it , I swear

all the music you’re provoking, filling up the air

 

Its getting louder  

 

 

this is the sound of an orchestra

I can hear it playin’ everywhere that you are

there is a sound for everything you do

this is the sound of my love for you

 

listen to the sound of my love for you

 

before you even say

what I know you’re gonna say

there are the sounds I hear

unrolling in my head

comes down really close

hold me like you do 

then all the music in my head you’ll hear it too

 

this is the sound of an orchestra

I can hear it playin’ everywhere that you are

there is a sound for everything you do

this is the sound of my love for you

 

 

listen to the sound of my love for you

The song is already on twitter.

 

Im so used to his old songs that this one sounds so different. Unlike the old ones which with hearing them for the  first time I fell in love of them, now it's different. I'm not used to the new sound.

My impression after hearing the whole song for the first time – it sounds much better than I expected! Don't get me wrong, the snippet I've heard before wasn't bad but tbh, I wasn't that excited, idk why but it felt quite generic to me. However, I absolutely love the beginning of the song, the verses are even better than the chorus imo. Especially the very beginning (intro and first verses) is amazing.:wub2:

 

Btw, I wonder if the New Music Friday playlist on Spotify is personalized? I know Release Radar is but I thought NMF isn't and that it just depends on the country. Just because I found there Sound Of An Orchestra on 12th spot.

 

And do you see the song on youtube? I saw on Twitter some screenshots from Mika's channel with the song but I don't have it on YT, it's probably only in Italy... EDIT: I even found the YT link but the video doesn't work for me... 

:no:

After listening to No Place in Heaven for the 1000000th time, I'm still wondering how is he going to top that near-perfect album. 

 

The way the song starts is awesome! Almost like a Woody Allen film, but by the time the chorus and second verse comes, it gets very...generic. I totally understand the song is for a TV show, but it could've been better...or maybe I'm just overreacting. But this is the second time I feel disappointed. I hope his 5th album is better than "It's My House" and "Sound of an Orchestra".

Oh my god, I’m so obsessed with this song I can’t even deal with it. Not even just on a basic listening, as a guy who’s interested in the construction of songs I adore it.

 

1) really good use of Mika’s range. Very effective. His voice sounds so beautiful here.

2) I love the lyrics. It’s so poetic. Mika really knows how to paint a picture with his words.

3) the way the sound has been built up. The vocals are just as important as each instrument. Clarinet, violin etc. 

4) the backing vocals kind of gives me an early Queen vibe. Around the Queen, Queen ll, sheet heart attack sort of era.

5) it’s catchy. Another ear worm I think.

6) why does it remind me of The Greatest Showman? 

7) loving the chorus

 

 

i could listen to this this song all day. If there’s a song that could help raise Mika’s profile in the UK again, I think it could be this one. I’m gonna go and encourage the British to listen to it on social media now. XD

First time I heard the song, I screamed. At 07.18 a.m in the morning :punk:

 

His sounds ,like always, awesome, phenomenal...

His voice incredible :mf_lustslow:

 

I’m trying to memorise this song now. I always repeat the song.

 

This is the sound of an orchestra 

This is the sound of my love for you 

Listen to the sound of my lust for you

 :trumpet:❤️❤️❤️❤️

I have already heard the song. I am delighted. Mika's voice is amazing . And this low voice sometimes. I can not wait for the new album.  :cheer:

I find the music richer than the previous albums thanks to the classical orchestration mixed with pop. The voice is also more elaborate, more melodic... and then its baritone voice!  :swoon:
The lyrics on the other hand remain in the same register so I don't talk about them....

I like the song a lot. We've already heard a part before the release, but the total sounds very very good.

Don't forget that this song was NOT written for the album! It's specially created for the TV series so this orchestral sound is absolutely justified. I love the instruments in a wonderful coordination with the voices! I am not sure but I think that most of back vocals were made by Mika. And I can hear more of colours of his voice. 

And for lyrics I find them sounding young, fresh and full of love. Mika knows how to use words to talk in a poetic way even about small things.

For sure it will fit perfectly to the story of "La Compagnia del Cigno".

 

 

At last a new song! We missed Mika very much. :cheer:
