Oh, Mika! He is so cheerful. What a pleasant way to warm up for the weekend, Mixers  — here’s your exclusive stream of “Blue Eyes,” a song from the flamboyant Lebanese piano man’s upcoming second album, The Boy Who Knew Too Much. It already appeared on this summer’s Songs for Sorrow EP, but we didn’t think you’d mind another listen, especially since the festive clickity-clackity backbeat and lyrics about perking the hell up are such the opposite of sad. This + the already-EW-Must-List-approved “We Are Golden” = one fall album we can’t wait to get our hands on.

What do you think? Does Mika make you smile, too?
