Recommendation Of The Week: Mika’s – “Blame It On The Girls”

In an interview with Q magazine, Mika says:

[“Blame It on the Girls”] sounds like No Doubt. It’s about a wealthy, handsome boy who has everything, yet pretends to be miserable.
—Mika, Q Magazine[4]

The song was inspired by a well-dressed, good-looking man Mika and his sister saw walking down a street in London shouting down his phone. The song uses a musical technique called musique concrète in which the music is devised by using every day objects to make sound. In this particular song, the beat is created by Mika hitting his desk, clapping his hands and stamping his feet.
