MIKA – Love Today: Patrick Wolf Remix (Promo 10″)

Island WOLF10PRO: 19th March 2007
Love Today (Patrick Wolf Remix)
“I said, everybody’s gonna love today, gonna love today, gonna love today”

Mika’s recent arrival on the Pop scene was greeted by uncertainty from my ears. Was he a gloriously camp Pop pixie or an over the top, irritating, derivative, poor man’s Scissor Sister. I decided he was the latter.

Then I purchased this 10″ because the genius hands of Mr Patrick Wolf had touched it. He’s taken the Mika track and rubbed it’s shiny face in the dirt of cut-up, glitchy Electroclash. Very little of the original remains, a blessing I thought, but then I listened to the original for comparison. I found myself dancing about, failing to sing along to Mika’s stupidly high falsetto, and pretending to play along with the furious Art-Rock Guitars. God-damn-it Mika rules, curse you Patrick Wolf you’ve made me loose all semblance of musical decency.

Since this is a promo only Remix and I don’t think it’s going to get an official release, I’ve uploaded it for your musical pleasure (Check Ebay if you want the physical thing):
