Cover: Mika - Hips Don't Lie

First, let me just say that 'Grace Kelly' is a very addictive song. And 'Life In Cartoon Motion' is probably the first great pop album of 2007.

There you have it. Now, the main point of this post. To share a new Live Lounge cover that will peek your curiousity for sure. And traffic boost. Mostly the former one, though.

Here, clearly Mika doesn't take it seriously. He kept cracking up all the way throughout the take, he didn't care to memorize all the lyrics, and he was both Shakira and Wyclef Jean (low register at Wyclef's parts, and that sometime annoying falsetto at Shakira's). I'm not sure what to make out of this cover except that it's just fun to listen to. Like if you're, uhm, a big fan of the hit, you'll be terrorized by this version, otherwise, you will enjoy it and accept it as what it is.

This has been around for a while, but in case you haven't got it, here's your chance.

Something funny: I tried to google 'Mika' in Google Image search engine for a ready pic, and those are the results it came up with. I ended up cropping and uploading one myself.
