Mika - Grace Kelly


I Just CANNOT get this song out of my head! I'm singing it in the shower, in the car,around the house, at work. I sang it while paying the cashier at stop and shop! "I can be brown I can be blue I can be VIOLET SKY!" Somebody stop me!
Here are the lyrics, do you want to Hit Play and sing along with me and take a chance that you will get it stuck in your head too?

Do I attract you?
Do I repulse you with my queasy smile?
Am I too dirty?
Am I too flirty?
Do I like what you like?

I could be wholesome
I could be loathsome
I guess Im a little bit shy
Why dont you like me?
Why dont you like me without making me try?

I try to be like Grace Kelly
But all her looks were too sad
So I try a little Freddie
Ive gone identity mad!

I could be brown
I could be blue
I could be violet sky
I could be hurtful
I could be purple
I could be anything you like
Gotta be green
Gotta be mean
Gotta be everything more
Why dont you like me?
Why dont you like me?
Why dont you walk out the door!

How can I help it
How can I help it
How can I help what you think?
Hello my baby
Hello my baby
Putting my life on the brink
Why dont yo like me
[ Grace Kelly lyrics found on http://www.completealbumlyrics.com ]
Why dont you like me
Why dont you like yourself?
Should I bend over?
Should I look older just to be put on the shelf?

I try to be like Grace Kelly
But all her looks were too sad
So I try a little Freddie
Ive gone identity mad!

I could be brown
I could be blue
I could be violet sky
I could be hurtful
I could be purple
I could be anything you like
Gotta be green
Gotta be mean
Gotta be everything more
Why dont you like me?
Why dont you like me?
Why dont you walk out the door!

Say what you want to satisfy yourself
But you only want what everybody else says you should want

I could be brown
I could be blue
I could be violet sky
I could be hurtful
I could be purple
I could be anything you like
Gotta be green
Gotta be mean
Gotta be everything more
Why dont you like me?
Why dont you like me?
Why dont you walk out the door!

I remember this song from the movie Knocked-up. He sounds a lot like Freddie Mercury.

Hey this is cool....my dear friend Laura just went to see Mika in Vancouver, her daughter took her for her birthday. Tonight we are having her goddess celebration! He IS being likened to Freddie Mercury....I do think he is the new Queen! Great fun post!!

Lucy dear Lucy

I almost always agree with everything you say. But on this occasion we are going different ways. I employ lots of teenagers and they are constantly playing this at work. I am SICK of hearing it! And to compare this squeeky voiced pretender to Freddie Mercury! Well, words fail me.

Ps. Still talking to me?

Wherever did you find this song? I've not heard it yet, which surprises me as my kids are pretty "up" on their music. He is so Freddie Mercury-ish it's almost scary! Pretty catchy tune.

I love that we can link our favorite youtubes to our blogs. I've discovered such great music this way. This guys voice reminds me so much of Freddie Mercury from Queen. AWESOME!!
