MIKA

Últimamente más de una persona me ha comentado que está oyendo en la radio un cantante nuevo con una canción muy divertida. Exacto, hablamos de MIKA y Grace Kelly.

Nacido en Beirut en 1984 (y yo me pregunto… ¿qué he hecho yo con mi vida?) y criado entre Londres y Paris, vive actualmente en Nueva York. Life in Cartoon Motion es su primer album, del que se extrajo como single la canción Relax, take it easy (2006). Pero ha sido su segundo sencillo, Grace Kelly, el que ha acaparado la atención de los medios.

Hace una música muy parecida a la de Scissor Sisters y su voz recuerda a la de Freddie Mercury. ¿Las letras de sus canciones? Hablan de chicas gordas, rollos gays y piruletas. Es la gran esperanza en este 2007 para su compañía de discos Universal Records.

Ya os iré poniendo otras canciones del disco. De momento os dejo el vídeo y, como ya es costumbre, la letra de la canción.

Grace Kelly
Do I attract you?
Do I repulse you with my queasy smile?
Am I too dirty?
Am I too flirty?
Do I like what you like?

I could be wholesome
I could be loathsome
I guess Im a little bit shy
Why dont you like me?
Why dont you like me without making me try?

I try to be like Grace Kelly
But all her looks were too sad
So I try a little Freddie
I’ve gone identity mad!

I could be brown
I could be blue
I could be violet sky
I could be hurtful
I could be purple
I could be anything you like
Gotta be green
Gotta be mean
Gotta be everything more
Why dont you like me?
Why dont you like me?
Why dont you walk out the door!

How can I help it
How can I help it
How can I help what you think?
Hello my baby
Hello my baby
Putting my life on the brink
Why dont yo like me
Why dont you like me
Why dont you like yourself?
Should I bend over?
Should I look older just to be put on the shelf?

I try to be like Grace Kelly
But all her looks were too sad
So I try a little Freddie
I’ve gone identity mad!

I could be brown
I could be blue
I could be violet sky
I could be hurtful
I could be purple
I could be anything you like
Gotta be green
Gotta be mean
Gotta be everything more
Why dont you like me?
Why dont you like me?
Why dont you walk out the door!

Say what you want to satisfy yourself
But you only want what everybody else says you should want

I could be brown
I could be blue
I could be violet sky
I could be hurtful
I could be purple
I could be anything you like
Gotta be green
Gotta be mean
Gotta be everything more
Why dont you like me?
Why dont you like me?
Why dont you walk out the door!
