Midé – Unlikely

Midé is a London-based, twenty-something year old, singer/songwriter. “I worked hard writing songs and composing music long before it hit me that this is who I am”. Midé has been mesmerizing audiences with his third arm (Guitar) and soulful voice before and since the launch of his debut EP: “Travellin’ Light”. The videos for both the title track and the bonus track have gone down as a favourite for many and as a step in the right direction for the Acoustic-Soul man. “I’ve always had a creative streak and in my early teens it came out in the form of art. I was always drawing up comic (well comical) superheroes and cartoons. Somehow, through college, it grew into a liking for arts and music and literature.

I began rapping (just shy of mediocre) and I did – well I thought I was a rapper for a couple of years. As I got older, the streak seemed to mature from petty ill-composed lyrics into structured rhyme and meanings took form and before long, Poesy was replacing rap. Its awkward watching the whole process in yourself, like trying to watch the summer breeze – you know its there and you feel it moving but you don’t see it happening.” Midé calls it Acoustic Soul and there is no denying the soul in the delightful songs and melodies he delivers. Ever since listening to “Continuum” and “Room For Squares” by John Mayer, a big influence in Midé’s sound, he has developed so much as a songwriter; you only need to hear “Change is a ‘comin” from his upcoming record to understand. Midé also cites Israel Houghton, Eric Clapton, Jonathan Butler and a host of other greats (united by their expressiveness, soul and their guitars) as his inspiration.

Midé – Unlikely Lyrics:
Verse 1:
I’m so unlikely that it’s likely that convention misses me
So unusual the usual just never uses me
Not spectacular so mix me in with the regular
Cos I’m so…
If I should change the way I look
Will you change the way you see me
Or look right through me
Maybe my nose looks out of shape
Maybe my shape don’t fit my nose, nobody knows

Chorus:
Unlikely! So unlikely to be seen
Unlikely! So it’s likely that I win
Unlikely! So unlikely to be seen
Unlikely! So it’s likely that I win
Verse 2:
I’m so unassuming you assume that I’ll be just the same as you
So unpopular, the popular don’t know what I’m here to do
Mr. Regular, ‘cos I’m nobody in particular
(And I’m so…)
Well I’m ok with the way I look
If you don’t change the way you see me, it’s on you
Cos I go on about the truth but you don’t really believe me, despite the proof
Chorus:
Unlikely! So unlikely to be seen
Unlikely! So it’s likely that I win
Unlikely! So unlikely to be seen
Unlikely! So it’s likely that I win

Bridge:
I’m not curious ‘cos curious is me, half-trying ridiculously to be or not to be (x2)
Midé Unlikely Midé   Unlikely
