“Why don’t you like me, why don’t you like me?”

Whilst travelling along the YouTube tunnel one day I discovered this video by an artist called Mika:


I could be brown
I could be blue
I could be violet sky
I could be hurtful
I could be purple
I could be anything you like
Gotta be green
Gotta be mean
Gotta be everything more
Why don’t you like me?
Why don’t you like me?
Why don’t you walk out the door!

Now, IS there a metaphor here for us?? Well, possibly I suppose but mostly, I just really LOVE the tune. Maybe it is because I am reliving my 80’s favorites lately and he reminds me so much of Freddy Mercury but I have been humming it obsessively this week. Since I hate to be alone in my neurosis most of the time I thought I would firmly implant “Grace Kelly” into your brain as well.you’re welcome.

  1. I hear ya, flip…it’s just so darned catchy…

    the rest of his album is (to quote my friend David) FABULOUS! highly recommended…each tune is a precious trinket wrapped in exquisite foil paper…

  2. I like him, I like him, I like him!

    Thanks so much.

    This is my first visit here and I’m so pleased to come and find this here – and you!

    Peace, love and understanding.

  3. Hey Ruby, welcome!

    I know it….isn’t he great?? My kids love the tune but keep saying” who is Grace Kelly?” “Why does he want to be like her?” “Who is Freddy?”

    but they sing along anyway….

  4. I love the 80s and Freddie Mercury and Queen as well. I have several albums of theirs and I know this music better than anyone and will beat an person at Music trivia!!! Favorite Queen Song is : Killer Queen and best 80s song is She Blinded Me With Science by Thomas Dolby oh I forgot in the techno category it would be Cars by Gary Neuman.

  5. I’ve heard this tune “Grace Kelly” by Mika while driving home from work many times but isn’t it finteresting how hard it becomes to remember the artists name and title when you want it. Its Christmas eve today and I’ve just found the song, thanks to your website. My 2 young sons are dancing around to the song, filled with the excitement of Christmas. Thankyou – what a great website.

  7. Wow! I heard this song sitting in my car @ lunch yesterday. I didn’t catch the name of the song or the artist – so I wrote down words that I remembered & just found it on YouTube. Played it 1/2 dozen times. I simply love hearing it. The words & video are great. Yes he reminds me very much of Freddy Mercury…………..Mika your the best!!!!!!!!

  8. Mrs Metaphor – sorry – I was so excited about finding the song, I didn’t realize this was someone’s site – this was put together so beautifully – thank you so very much – such talent you have. I will be back……….

  9. My brother suggested I might like this website. He was entirely right. This post truly made my day. You can not believe simply how much time I had spent for this info! Thank you!
