Mika "Love Today"
I'm not much of a music critic, but I do know what I like and don't. Just like art, I tend to look for substance in music. Pussy Cat Dolls, Britney Spears and any other fabricated impersonal music awakes a fit of rage in me. I'm always looking for good music, the kind that will not sound dated in a few years. Something that my grandkids will hear and say damn that's good music, just like the sounds of Motown, Beach Boys, Cat Stevens and other great acts.
In this search for good music I came across Mika, a young Lebanese London based singer with a cool upbeat sound. I saw one of his music videos on TV a few months ago and thought "that's really good," and moved on. But last week as I was listening to french radio "Love Me" came on and I fell in love. I bought the album and it did not disappoint. His sound is a mix of Silvester meets Prince meets Queen meets The Darkness. Whatever his sound maybe be, it's good none the less. Hope you enjoy this guy as much as I do.
