"Grace Kelly" by Mika

Mika's smash hit album Life in Cartoon Motion contains this UK #1, Grace Kelly; the track also attained the #1 spot in Argentina, Denmark, Ireland, Italy, Lebanon, Mexico, Norway, and Spain. Mika has stated in various interviews that the song's basis is the famous aria Largo al factotum from the opera The Barber of Seville by Gioachino Rossini, and that it was inspired by a less than inspiring meeting with a record company executive.

The award-winning video - starring Mika and Holly Muller - was directed by Sophie Muller; it's posted here today in honour of the birth of its subject.
