I have resisted the urge since I first heard the song, but I could resist no longer. Today, I bought the debut album by Mika from the iTunes Music Store. His first single, Grace Kelly, is getting serious hype and radio airplay. I usually stay away from music that gets this sort of attention because it is usually over-produced crap. But there is something about this guy. I've never heard anything more eclectic! He seems equally inspired by the Beatles, Erasure, Robbie Williams, Queen, ABBA and Frankie Goes to Hollywood. And his voice...holy crap this guy can sing! I'm hooked and I am no longer ashamed to admit it!
And if you don't believe that he can cut it live, I went looking for proof and found this.
