Grace Kelly - Mika (2007)
It doesn't get any more sugar coated pop confection than today's track. But in a time of "Friday", "iYiYi", and pop stars who don't even try, "Grace Kelly" really can make you nostalgic for 2007, when a little guy from England with a high voice referenced Freddie Mercury (and his writing style!) and Miss Rear Window in the same fantastic hit. Thankfully, Mika has a new disc set for release this year, and if it is anywhere near as solid as his first two UK smashes, then I think we have nothing to worry about in the pop realm. Quality always shines through the garbage anyway.
Now if we can only get the Beebs to release something like this!
First Listen: Balún, 'Prisma Tropical'
