So beautiful! It made my heart soar like when I heard TOOL (the song) for the first time, but for a different reason. It feels both fresh and familiar. Very excited to hear this live soon!

WOW this song is seriously amazing!!!! The first time I heard it this morning I could only say 'WOW WOW WOW!!'!! It sounds like Queen, the real Queen sound is in it, I love Mika and Freddie both a lot. After 3 times I understood the meaning of the lyrics and the message of the song, and it made me sooo happy. I really love it!!! ❤️ It's like Freddie reborn. Mika's voice always makes me feel safe and home, it's such a great pleasure to have him as my idol haha :D It's fine that we had to wait so long for this new music, if this is the kind of music we receive now ❤️ It's just perfect... ❤️ I already messaged the Dutch radio stations to put it on the radio, please haha

All this, and in the very beginning Ed Sheeran, some parts also remind me of the song American Pie.

It's beautiful! :swoon:

I Hear in that song:  Billy Joel, Beatles, Queen, and of course, MIKA! 

I LOVE IT!

 

 

All of this, and then álso a bit of Electric Light Orchestra haha, because of the many changes in music styles and the happiness and joy, but also the poetric parts.

It's a fantastic song. I loved since I heard that little bit for the first time. I hear Queen, The Beatles and even some parts remind me a band called E.L.O, Electric Light Orchestra. The lyrics are so intense, like the cover hahaha but ot fits perfectly with him. 

 

Now I need to listen the song on repeat to appreciate the little details. I feel really happy Mika wrote and composed something like that. ❤❤

My honest opinion: I really like the intro and the outro and that he sings 'You get me high' as high as he can :naughty: But I don't like the middle part where he sings 'oh tiny love' for what feels like a million times. It might change when I listen to the song more often, though.

 

The line

And if it all goes bad and our love sets like the sun

I'd give up a hundred thousand loves for just this one.

is so   :tears: :crybaby: 

 

As for interpretations: I don't see the song being about the love to himself or his mum. For me it's about a romantic love for a partner. I can't imagine anything else. :wub2:

Here are the lyrics in English and French from

https://m.greatsong.net/traduction-tiny-love-mika

Maybe it's not perfect, but I find it pretty correct.

 

It's not a sunrise over canyons shaped like hearts

Ce n'est pas un lever de soleil sur des canyons en forme de cœur

It isn't bursting into song in Central Park

Ça ne commence pas en chanson à Central Park

It's not the outline of your face drawn in the stars

Ce n'est pas le contour de ton visage dessiné dans les étoiles

It's a "still-there-Monday-morning" kind of love

C'est un genre d'amour "encore-là-lundi-matin"

There's no dramatic declarations in the rain

Il n'y a pas de déclarations dramatiques sous la pluie

It's not a love that finds its pleasure after pain

Ce n'est pas un amour qui trouve son plaisir après la douleur

I couldn't train a bunch of doves to spell your name

Je ne pouvais pas former un groupe de colombes pour épeler ton nom

It's a "don't-know-what-the-messin'" kind of love

C'est un genre d'amour "je ne sais pas quoi faire du désordre"

Our kind of love, it gets better every day

Notre genre d'amour, s'améliore chaque jour

Crazy colors in the grey, our love

Notre amour a de drôles de couleurs dans le gris

Tiny love, it's a tiny love

Petit amour, c'est un petit amour

My life was dull

Ma vie était terne

I used to walk in a different way

Je marchais différemment

But now I'm dancin', dancin', dancin', dancin'

Mais maintenant je dance, dance, dance, dance

Don't care who can see me dancin'

Je me fiche de qui peut me voir danser

Oh, tiny love

Oh, petit amour

Oh, tiny love

Oh, petit amour

Oh, tiny love

Oh, petit amour

This tiny love has spoken

Ce petit amour a parlé

And bigger hearts get broken

Et les grands cœurs se brisent

(Oh) Tiny love

(Oh) petit amour

So small that you can't find us

Si petit que vous ne pouvez pas nous trouver

The world revolves around us

Le monde tourne autour de nous

(Oh) Tiny love

(Oh) petit amour

This kind of love, it can't be no other way

Ce genre d'amour ne peut pas être autrement

One kind of love blows the other ones away

Un genre d'amour l'emporte sur les autres

Some times it's tough, others think we're acting strange

Parfois, c'est difficile, d'autres pensent que nous faisons semblant

But it's our kind of love, our kind of love

Mais c'est notre genre d'amour, notre genre d'amour

Oh, tiny love

Oh, petit amour

Oh, tiny love

Oh, petit amour

My name is Mika Holbrook

Je m'appelle Mika Holbrook

I was born in 1983

Je suis né en 1983

No, I'm not losing my mind

Non, je ne perds pas la tête

It's just this thing that you do to me

C'est juste cette chose que tu me fais

You get me high on a tiny love

Tu me fais tourner la tete sur un petit amour

You get me high

Tu me fais tourner la tete

And if it all goes bad

Et si tout va mal

And our love sits like the sun

Et notre amour perdure comme le soleil

I'd give up a hundred thousand loves

J'abandonnerais cent mille amours

For just this one

Pour seulement celui-ci

You get me high on a tiny love

Tu sur un petit amour

You get me high on a tiny love

Tu sur un petit amour

It's not a sunrise over canyons shaped like hearts

Ce n'est pas un lever de soleil sur des canyons en forme de cœur

It isn't bursting into song in Central Park

Ça ne commence pas en chanson à Central Park

We may be tiny to the world, but in our hearts

Nous sommes peut-être minuscules dans monde, mais dans nos cœurs

We be giants with our tiny, tiny love

Nous sommes des géants avec notre tout petit amour

I hear the Beatles very clearly after the drums.  :biggrin2:

It's pretty.

I think it will be a good commercial success.

Yes. In the 2 or 3 countries where he does promo. 🙄 Songs don't get radio airplay without promo, and without radio airplay commercial success is unlikely. Well, same story as always, Germany and most other countries will hear nothing of it. :emot-sad: Such a shame, this song would deserve worldwide recognition.

Anyway I'm very much looking forward to hearing it live, I'm sure the live version will evolve to something even bigger and better over time - the version of the Bocelli gig already had wonderful additions to the already wonderful song. :wub2:

In my version there is :

 

"I couldn't train a bunch of doves to spell your name"

 

which has more sense - doves - an icon for love declarations :original:

My pass at the lyrics

 

It's not a sunrise over canyons shaped like hearts
It isn't bursting into song in Central Park
It's not the outline of your face drawn in the stars
It's a still-there-Monday-morning kinda love
There's no dramatic declarations in the rain
It's not a love that finds its pleasure after pain
I couldn't train a bunch of doves to spell your name
It's a don't-know-what-they're-missing kind of love
 
Our kind of love, it gets better every day
Crazy colors in the grey, our love is a tiny love, it's a tiny love
My life was dull, I used to walk in a different way
But now I'm dancing, dancing, dancing, dancing
Don't care who can see me dancing
Oooooh, tiny love
Oooooh, tiny love
Oooooh, tiny love  
Aaaaah, Aaaaah, Aaaaah 

This tiny love has spoken, and bigger hearts get broken
Oooooh tiny love
So small that you can't find us, the world revolves around us
Ooooooh tiny love
This kind of love, there can be no other way
One kind of love blows the other ones away
Sometimes it's tough, others think we're acting strange
But it's our kind of love, our kind of love
Oooooh, tiny love
Oooooh, tiny love

My name is Michael Holbrook, I was born in 1983
No I'm not losing my mind it's just this thing that you do to me
You get me higher on a tiny love
You get me high
And if it all goes bad, and our love sets like the sun
I'd give up a hundred thousand loves for just this one
You get me high on our tiny love
You get me high on our tiny love
 
It's not a sunrise over canyons shaped like hearts
It isn't bursting into song in Central Park
We may be tiny to the world but in our hearts
We be giants with our tiny tiny love

 

These lyrics sound pretty accurate to me. "train a bunch of dust to spell your name" sounds funny, but I don't think so. :naughty:

 Cant wait to hear it live. I'm curious to see the variations he will do.

It's rather "train a bunch of doves to spell your name".

As for the latter, I hope so, I want it to be about Andy. I'm just confused about the female hand on the cover and the line "My name is Michael Holbrook, I was born in 1983" - how do these fit in for you?

 

On the first part it's the opposite to me, I can't get enough of the "Oooh Tiny love" part, with all its additions and variations. :wub2: The "hiiiiigh" is a little to often for me though, it might start getting on my nerves after the 1000th listen. :teehee:

Anyway I'm sure at the gigs neither will bother us too much. :naughty:
