This is a total cliche, and its been said many times before, but this album changed my life. Corny, I know, but its true. I was a very depressed, down in the dumps individual who listened to mostly downbeat, pro-death, heavy metal music. I then heard the single, "Grace Kelly" on the radio in the car. I couldn't get it out of my head and looking back, it seems to be a good thing that the song totured me for hours as I searched the web to find out who wrote it. Once I tracked down Mika, I immediately downloaded the track. After many plays on my iPod, I bought the album, "Life in Cartoon Motion". Mika's humorous approach to homosexuality in "Billy Brown" and happy-go-lucky verses in "Love Today" really brought me into the light to see the beauty of life and individuality. I don't think that Mika uses other's music to make carbon-copies of the same-old, same-old; I think that he brings us back to a time when it wasn't a necessity to starve yourself for beauty as he says in "Big Girl (You Are Beautiful)" and when it was okay to be happy all the time. He brings us to a time when sexuality wasn't the only thing that sold an album. Times have changed, yes, but Mika brings us back to our innocence with his debut album. Good for you Mika, much appreciated. I can't wait for a second helping of happiness.
