Mika actually has several good songs . . . but not so much in the American style. His music tends to run to European tastes.

And while his voice is definitely reminiscent of Freddie Mercury (particularly in "Grace Kelly," where I think the similarity was intentional), a more apt comparison would likely be Robbie Williams. In particular, Mika's "Life in Cartoon Motion" album sounds like it was arranged by Williams' producer.

As far as "Big Girls (You Are Beautiful)" . . . it's peppy, it's happy, and it's life-affirming. We could use more music like that in the world, and I like it. I suggest enjoying both Queen and Mika -- to quote Helen Reddy, "There's room for every one in this world, so everyone make some room."

Don't fight it . . . you know you want to sing along with every song from "Pete's Dragon."

Well, how could you not love "Candle on the Water?"
