Mika makes his second appearance on Song of the Week this week with his follow-up hit “Happy Ending” which is currently climbing the charts in the UK. The fourth single from his album Life in Cartoon Motion, this track matches the energy and creative energy of “Grace Kelly”, without as much theatrical storytelling.

Song of the Week

I’m starting a song of the week posting…we’ll see if it lasts.

Week #1 song of the week is Mika’s Grace Kelly. This probably seems dumb to everyone in the UK, where the single had it’s debut back in January, has already hit #1 on some charts and is played seemingly hourly on the pop stations.

But in the US, Mika is just emerging in most markets, having been added to VH1’s videos just this week. He was also named one of 10 new artists to watch by Rolling stone this week. If you haven’t heard any of his stuff, he has the vocal range of Freddie Mercury, an acknowledged influence, and a voice which is very polished by classical vocal training. His other singles are not stellar, but Grace Kelly is very strong. http://www.mikasounds.com
