Mika's " The Origin Of Love " is without a doubt of the finest and most accomplished pop records of the year that underlines once again that Mika is, quite frankly, one of the most gifted pop writers on the planet today. One of the highlights on the album is " Popular Song " that he co-wrote with singer Priscilla Renea who is also featured on the track pWhen I spent some time with Mika prior to his show in Los Angeles in October, he told me he was working on a new version of the song with teen pop [...]
Click here for Numbers 20-11 10. FUN. - SOME NIGHTS This was a group no one could get away from. I wasn’t a fan of all the synth and autotune at first, but eventually it grew on me. I discovered The Format a long time ago and fell in love with that group. And while I wish The Format was still around, fun. is doing a pretty good job at keeping the music going. fun. - Some Nights [...]

Primo duetto della serata con Davide che interpreta Rome Wasn't Built in a day con Skye dei Morcheeba. Lui appare decisamente più convinto rispetto all'inizio del programma e molto più sicuro di sé. Anche vocalmente. Ed Elio nota anche lui questa differenza del ragazzo ("Come sei riuscito a imparare così velocemente l'inglese?!"). Arisa si complimenta ("Sei bravo, sempre più sicuro, sei pronto, in bocca al lupo"). Morgan definisce il tutto piacevole e Skye non si sbilancia. Potrebbe vincere Davide? "Possibly". I finalisti cantano un medley dei successi di Eros: si parte da [...]

All set against a pretty backdrop, the MIKA takes to the ocean but manages not to get his weave wet in new video, UNDERWATER . Such a lovely toon, woulda made for the perfect GIRLS ALOUD 'comeback' 'ballad' single tbqf. Btw I reckon this he-popper is very much a power bottom, who only tops up on those spesh anniversary occasions.
Mika's third LP The Origin of Love washes away the neon cartoon paint that made The Boy Who Knew Too Much too sugary, but in doing so it steps back from the goofy wit that made his debut so memorable. If the title of Mika's third studio LP The Origin of Love gives you pause, you're well within reason. This is the same guy who wrote a song about curvaceous women hitting the clubs with diet Cokes in hand ("Big Girl [You are Beautiful]" from Life in Cartoon Motion) and Disney-ready ditties about being a [...]
It shows how out of step I am with the pop music world that I had never heard of Mika. Upon hearing the name I pictured an indie princess strumming her guitar through hipper-than-thou mopey songs, for some reason. Instead, I find myself confronted by a gay British boy with a Freddie Mercury fixation and a gaggle of unapologetic pop songs. Thank God! While apparently quite the sensation in Europe he never managed to break in America. I can sort of see why America would be less embracing. While comparisons to Mercury are obvious in listening to him [...]
'Origin of Love' is taken from Mika 's brand new album 'The Origin of Love' which, since release in October, has been Top 10 in 15 countries across Europe, selling over 500,000 copies so far and reaching No 1 in France, taking Mika's career album sales to 9 million. Meanwhile Mika has achieved his first hit album in the USA, going into the iTunes Top Ten on week of release and hitting the #1 spot on the US iTunes Pop Chart. Completely self-created and self-imagined, 'The Origin of Love' has been a two-year DIY labour of [...]
Happy Halloween! For some of you, today will be an average Wednesday: a full night of sleep, some work, and perhaps a night with the misses or mister. For those not faint of heart, tonight will be a fun night. Halloween is made for foolishness and debauchery - with that comes music. We have a new SoundCloud account that will help us round up the best fresh tracks. All of these songs are either spooky, dark halloween tracks or have been released in the last couple days and lines up well with the festivities. Let's get started with some [...]
Strip Steve has just come out with a great remix to Mika's track "Underwater" that should be out sometime soon under Barclay / Universal Records. Genre tagged as "Scuba Dive Funk" this tune takes it's listener deep down under water, into a world surrounded by fluid melodies, lush synths, and bubbles simmering in the background. Providing a refreshing take on Mika's original, Strip Steve's remix is something that I'll certainly be lounging too for the rest of the week!
The MIKA took his ORIGIN OF LOVE stateside and performed it on the Jay Leno show last PM.

Hey, it's Monday: ► Nicki Bluhm & the Gramblers visit the Troubadour behind their 2011 album "Driftwood," and although as a rule we don't post live videos here, we thought their cover of Hall & Oates' "I Can Go for That," recorded in their tour van, was pretty nifty. ► Kaki King headlines the El Rey Theatre behind her new album "Glow." ► Mika does another night at the Fonda Theatre, supported by The Dolls: Mia Moretti & Caitlin Moe. ► Mia Doi Todd and [...]
