And the start is very much like 'Sweet Dreams' by Eurythmics.

Kermit played both that and Mika this morning - is he trying to drive away both his listeners?

Laughing No, he's quite capable of eradicating any possible interest people have in listening to his show without outside assistance.... Laughing

Yes it does, and it kind of goes to pot after that.

I have to say, I was confused as to why football was being discussed on this thread!
I think it's one of those songs I switch off from.

You're not missing much - "Chelsea" or the Mika catastrophe. Rolling Eyes

I think the lowest point was last week when Ken played it just 10 minutes after Terry did - now that's amateurish! It used to be policy that you couldn't even have the same artist in 2 shows in a row, never mind the same song. No wonder we're sick of everything.

As for Mika - ooooh, he's bloody annoying, isn't he? His constant calls for me to love him is smacking of desperation, as if his entire life has been surrounded by people telling him to sod off...

I saw him on Jay Leno's Tonight show the other night, so obviously he is off to conquer the US as well now.

Hopefully they'll give him an orange jumpsuit and send him down to Gitmo for crimes against music....

Apparently, quite a few did - that's what "Grace Kelly" is all about. He was so annoyed by his latest rejection that he went home and wrote it. Quite what happened next, I'm not sure (but I bet the words "scissor" and "sisters" come into it).

As for America - we know he's trying to conquer there because of all his appearances on SxSW the other week. For all of Radio 2's championing of it as a music festival, it's really just a trade fair.

That Mika record Evil or Very Mad bloomin' awful!

You'd think Radio 2 would have learnt by now that constant repetition of the same tracks drives us all to other stations!

It's my theory that the Chelsea song is being played because Prince Harry's dating a girl called Chelsea, though there hasn't been a corresponding leap in airplay for Marillion's 'Chelsea Monday'.

A member of my Weight Watchers class had that sodding Mika song as a ringtone! That week I'd been getting rejections myself from potential employees, and I didn't want the reminder that went off. Evil or Very Mad
