I am wondering why Mika's exciting new album (I just bought it) has not been promoted more in the US? What the hell is wrong with this dumb-ass country that I live in? All I hear on the radio is elevator music.

Mika's new album is the most original thing that has come out of music in a long time. The quality of the music is much better than what Lady GaGa put out. Not that Lady GaGa's album was bad at all. Why aren't they playing Mika on the radio instead of all of this elevator music?

What the f*** has this got to do with Queen - General Discussion? Heres an idea... ask a Mika fan site.

(Maybe he is because he is utter shit?)

Mika is manufactured pop shit just like Lady GaGa and co. There's no difference between Lady Gaga and Mika, only similarities.
Similarities:
a) They suck
b) They both enjoy getting boned by men
c) They make cookie-cutter pop shit

I strongly disagree with Mika being labeled as cookie-cutter pop.

First of all, he writes his own songs, which is more than can be said for most of what passes for music in the mainstream today.  And the writing is very good.  It's interesting and clever at times - a breath of fresh air.  I just wish he'd leave that falsetto alone and stick to his chest voice.  He's got a great voice.  I hope this guy endures.

I agree with moog, wtf has this got to do with queen, i remember all the hype about him being the next freddie !

Just cos he said freddie, doesnt make him the next freddie, when i heard that i nearly collapsed a lung with laughter !

Freddie indeed, more like freddie flintstone more like !

And i agree with the falsetto thing as well Sir GH, enough said.

He is the next Freddie, just like Justin Hawkins was, simply because he sang in Falsetto.

Just because you can doesn't mean you have to, in every record, all the time, again and again and again.

Hope he ends up like Hawkins... a distant memory.

Heard he gets dressed up in animal constumes on stage too. Anything to detract from the shite that comes out of his mouth.

I've known people that like animal costumes when not on stage.  Trust me, obscurity is too good for them.

Not this particular section of this site. Obviously this should have been posted in the Personal section.......

So Aaron Neville was the next Freddie... even before there was a Freddie?

So who's the next Brian?  Whoever buys the next delay pedal?

The next Brian?  Definitely Art Neville.  Cyril is close second, but Art's the man.

In the personal section, but not here in the Queen section.

But that's not my decision, so I just respond to a topic like I usually would, regardless of where it is.

I think you'll find whoever buys the next Lexus.

Why would I care whether Mika is promoted in the USA?
