After Dylan Dunlap’s week, first guy and song in my mind was this extremely happy song. Mr. Mika, that nice piano and those high pitch tones looking for love (actually is a song complaining about they wanted him to more “normal” pop).
Modeled on Freddie Mercury’s voice and also mentioned in this song (“So I try a little Freddie”), it’s obvious he wanted to be different but also add his spice of happiness. The album “Life in Cartoon Motion” showed his splendorous talent, it also gave us a really nice upbeat in the ear where indie music was trying to take control, but most important, we had an album full of happy thoughts and sweet lyrics which hitted the world’s charts.
As you can see...well listen, the piano was the connector on the last 3 songs. It changed genres, personality, importance in the song to express moments. He also emphasis his voice making those high pitch arrangements, that in 2007 was a new refreshing sound (a polished falsetto comeback).
Next week it will be the last piano-connected song but we will travel through time to the late 60’s. Stay tuned and have a nice musical week!

About the curator - Rodrigo Medrano
At a very early age, music had an incredible impact on Rodrigo’s life. He was never able to listen to lullaby songs; instead he was served Guns n’ Roses and Aerosmith for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
At the age of 12, he became a melomaniac, collecting albums, EP’s, recording sessions, and researching every kind of genre. All this helped him to get his first job at a recording studio where he realized his life would forever revolve around sound and music.
Working on cruise ships as First Audio Technician allowed him to let loose his passion and expand his knowledge on psychoacoustics, eventually promoted up to being in charge of sound for the hit broadway shows: Rock of Ages and Burn The Floor.
His music library will never stop growing as his melomania will get worse and worse.
