Steph Posted February 25, 2007 Share Posted February 25, 2007 During the past few days I've had to reason with quite a few people who were quite negative about Mika and I have since sat down to think about this properly. Here's why I think this is: Mika had appeared from nowhere and jumped straight to no1 with a single and video which is so different to anything seen before....(few know that he had an uphill struggle with the music industry for many years because he refused to be moulded into a 'designer box' Mika is very gifted, he can play an instrument to perfection and he can use his voice in various ways to suit his songs..... this is unusual and scares people, solo artists are supposed to sing melodramatic ballards...this frightens people... Mika is a true performer, he can deliver his songs with so much energy that this again makes the onlooker uneasy .... |Mika does not conform to the sometimes very conservative music iindustry's idea of safe music for solo artists , he fights for his ideas and makes sure they are fully represented ....It again scares the ones in the knowhow... Mika wrote a supherb concept album which few people took the trouble to understand for what it is, the album goes full circle and his songs are a modern portrait of our society. He delivers his songs in a way he sees best to get accross, ...People only hear and see the songs as 'overthetop pop' and again it scares them Mika speaks very distinctly and he comes accross as very educated, through his many changes in his childhood he has travelled a great dea and gained much life experience which reflects in his music, which again sets him apart and ....people misread this as arrogant... DJ's have compared his 'priviledged' background to that of the Chiefs, is that a crime? Mika wears colourful clothes and he has agreat sense of style....people are again frightened by this because although many would like to dare do so too they cannot Mika is a supherb performer and his deliveries are colourful because he wants his fans to let their hair down....again this scares people because they would like to let go too and yet they can't Lastly.....Mika has all the looks and ....people are envious of these too My conclusion is that he will have to fight all the way because conservative Britain is not ready for him, not really! But I know that he will fight and he will win!!! Ps ..His album will probably become an all-time classic in 10 years time when the industry has finally woken up.... About the press: First they build you up just to knock you down (after this mega essay I'm too lazy to proof-read, so excuse any mistakes....please!!) :wink2: Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
