  1. Happy Ending

    Happy Ending is the third single release from British singer Mika. Taken from his debut album Life in Cartoon Motion, producer Greg Wells remixed and rearranged the single, released online on 8 October 2007, and in shops on CD and 7" vinyl on 15 October 2007. The single charted as Mika's fourth straight UK Top 10 single out of his first four, continuing his UK success so far, peaking at #7 in the UK Singles Chart. It was the fifth most added song to Australian radio in late October 2007 and was released there officially on 12 November 2007, as the 3rd single despite digital track sales placing the song in the ARIA singles chart before the official release. On Life in Cartoon Motion, fifty seconds after the song ends, a hidden track, "Over My Shoulder" starts. It is a solemn song about being left alone, cold and drunk. This also appeared on the CD single of "Grace Kelly".



    A happy ending refers to the conclusion or outcome of a story, situation, or experience that brings about a positive, satisfactory, or desirable result. It typically involves the resolution of conflicts or challenges, leading to a sense of contentment, joy, or fulfillment for the characters or individuals involved. This term is commonly associated with narratives in literature, movies, or other forms of entertainment, but can also be applied to real-life situations.


  1. Happy ending

    A happy ending is an ending of the plot of a work of fiction in which almost everything turns out for the best for the protagonists, their sidekicks, and almost everyone except the villains. In storylines where the protagonists are in physical danger, a happy ending would mainly consist in their surviving and successfully concluding their quest or mission; where there is no physical danger, a happy ending is often defined as lovers consummating their love despite various factors which may have thwarted it; and a considerable number of storylines combine both factors. A Times review of The Spy Who Came in from the Cold strongly criticised John le Carré for failing to provide a happy ending, and gave unequivocal reasons why in the reviewer's opinion such an ending is needed: "The hero must triumph over his enemies, as surely as Jack must kill the giant in the nursery tale. If the giant kills Jack, we have missed the whole point of the story." A happy ending is epitomized in the standard fairy tale ending phrase, "happily ever after" or "and they lived happily ever after.". Satisfactory happy endings are happy for the reader as well, in that the characters he or she sympathizes with are rewarded. However, some consider this as not an ending, but an open path for a possible sequel. For example, at the end of The Lion King, Simba defeats Scar, becomes king, marries and has a daughter, Kiara, thus giving way to The Lion King II: Simba's Pride.
