Cautionary Wife Posted February 20, 2007 Share Posted February 20, 2007 MONSTERS & CRITICS "Grace Kelly" - Mika Feb 20, 2007, 21:55 GMT Mika, a 23-year-old male Beirut-born jack-of-all-musical trades, topped U.K. singles in January with "Grace Kelly" based solely on digital sales - a new phenomenon in that country - with his jaw-dropping, wild-eyed Scissors Sisters-meets-Freddie Mercury four-octave vocal imprint. Cosmic uptempo production sounds like nothing that stateside radio has indulged . . . well . . . ever . . . with audacious howling-into-a-squeal falsetto opening verse: "Do I attract you? Do I repulse you with my queasy smile?/Am I too dirty? Am I too flirty?" Polarizing opinions are a certainty, given the self-proclaimed "operatic spoof`" manic musical overdrive. "Grace Kelly" is surely atypical, conspicuous in its weird, ambrosial, hyperactive originality. We can`t even imagine what`s in store from full-length debut 'Life in Cartoon Motion,' due in March. --- Can anyone explain "atypical, conspicuous in its weird, ambrosial, hyperactive originality"?
