Mika - Elle Me Dit
Mika's back? And he's French now? Whatever. Although I really don't listen to his music very often, I'm always curious to see what he'll do next and I do enjoy quite a large chunk of his musical output. I certainly didn't expect this, though. I think I was one of the only fans of his last single (the RedOne pairing was interesting, to say the least) and I guess this follows along with the dancey feeling of that, but there is still the little detail of the language. I'm not sure if he's trying to break in with French audiences (or if he's already popular there? I can imagine that), but he's gone and released this--the first taster from his upcoming album--as a French-only single. Forgetting the fact that I can't understand a word, I'm liking this more the more I listen to it. It's incredibly simple, while retaining the manic energy he's known for. If the album's anything like this (but in English), I'll be happy.
