I've been ranting and raving at length over the last few months about "Relax Take It Easy" by Mika. It is rather wonderful of course, but for some reason the record company in the UK can't see sense and release it here, bypassing it in favour of "Love Today" and "Big Girl".
Over in France it's a different story and justice is finally done as one of the best tracks from "Life In Cartoon Motion" finally hit the top of the French singles chart. Christophe Willem's "Double Je" is still no. 2, with David Guetta's great dance anthem "Love is Gone" at no. 4 and Amel Bent's equally great "Nouveau Francais" at no. 8. Expect some changes over the coming weeks: followers of the French charts will be well aware that it all goes a bit bonkers in the summertime so expect some kiddie pop and the usual lively zouk anthems.
