My happy music hottie: Mika.

I feel like if any post warrants a lot of exclamation points, it’s this one! I can’t even express how much I love Mika! He is so adorable, has the best smile and a fab head of hair. He is my go-to man for happy music, and his music is good for any occasion: if you’re giddy, stressed, having a bad day, feeling silly, if you want to bust out some dance movies, or rock out in your car. Whatever! I also love that he channels Freddy Mercury, another one of my all-time faves.

Mika was born in Beirut, is half Lebanese, half American, and grew up in Paris and London, so he has quite a multicultural flare. I don’t know why there isn’t more love for him on the radio in the States. He’s every bit as poppy and catchy as Carly Rae Jepsen. I am so excited to see him in concert again in October! He is beyond fabulous live! If you’re not familiar with Mika and you want to get happy, definitely check him out! His new album, The Origin of Love, will be released September 17th. Some of my fave songs are: Grace Kelly, Love Today, Big Girl (if you love Fat Bottom Girls, you will love this one), Happy Ending, Blame it on the Girls, Touches You (think George Michael’s Father Figure), and One Foot BoySo are they are other die-hard Mika fans who read this blog??

If you want to understand everything I love about Mika, check out his video for We Are Golden. It has it all: fab dance moves, color explosion, neon, glittery shoes, and just overall adorable quirky happiness!

    I’ve listened to Mika before, but never really looked at any of his photos. Pretty cute!
