So I don’t speak a bit of french. And I still can’t help blasting this song from my dorm room. Sorry neighbors…
Sharp editing paired with eccentric characters and vibrant backdrops makes for an entertaining video. I love the bright reds, purples, yellows and prints that culminate in a silly family portraiture at the end. Mika has this incredible ability to create music that describes our individualistic wants and desires. This song is obviously no exception. Take a quick look at some translations if you want a more comprehensive understanding of the song, but overall there is a positive emotion here. It is about getting out of your compressed bubble, and living; Don’t look back with regret, and dance!
(And if you are living under a rock for some reason go and buy all of his CDs right now. You can thank me later.)
