#songoftheday / REVIEW: MIKA: “STARING AT THE SUN”

No, it’s not a U2 cover… It’s another gorgeous MIKA original, which means a soaring vocal melody, vibrant beat and kaleidoscope’s worth of colorful instrumentation, all strung together brilliantly by his always charismatic voice.  Let’s face it — he could sing the Sesame Street theme song and we’d listen to it.  He’s one of the brightest singer/songwriters in pop today.  Here’s hoping he becomes as popular here in the States as he is in the rest of the world.  If anyone deserves it, it’s MIKA, the constant ball of positive vibes that he is.  Unless all you listen to is death metal, we guarantee that your day will be a little brighter after you listen to “Staring At The Sun.” Our advice?  Listen to it a few times and get it stuck in your head to wash away whatever annoying top 40 song you’ve currently got stuck in there.
