Musical Monday: Mika

Sometimes, some music just makes you happy. I love that. Some very particular moments in life, it's good to listen to sad songs and cry (about once a month). But all other days of the year, music should make you happy. And someone who makes such happy, uplifting songs, is Mika.

Mika was born in Beirut, in 1983, but raised in Paris and London. He has an education in classical music writing, but now makes pop songs. His first album, Life in Cartoon Motion, was released in 2007, with it's first hit single Relax, take it easy. Though, the second single Grace Kelly stormed the charts and got a lot more media attention. That same year, he was titled the best new talent in the prestigious Sound of 2007 music poll.

Mika's music is uplifting, well thought out, and colorful. It is named pop, but has it's roots in disco. Definitely worth to play during annoying chores, whenever you feel like dancing or feel you need some happiness in your life.
