I loved "Titanium" and she has an amazing voice but unfortunately, I have never listened to any other song of hers.

...I could choose everything but I won't. She does uptempo, downtempo, live acoustic type stuff, stage performances and she's had a few albums out already - she's well established. :) You might also know her as the female vocalist in Zero 7 from about 10 years ago making songs like 'In the waiting line'.

I recall a member mentioning how 'special' she was.

Then, Shabam! It's nice to see her with two mainstream hits.

She's a lovely singer.

She is one of my faves - I love the 'Some People Have REAL Problems' album so much, and of course, 'We Are Born'. Looking forward to her upcoming album :D

I agree. :tmb: Would be nice to see her perform sometime, she had to cancel her UK dates due to her illness. :(

Oh honey, you know my feelings for this beautiful woman.

All her albums are very special.

That said, I had no idea I Go To Sleep was a cover. I only discovered that the other day.

I love Breathe Me, Day Too Soon and Beautiful Calm Driving. :D

I remember seeing this when it first aired circa 2008. I was floored by her simple yet memorizing presentation. Her voice electrified me. Her voice is strength cradled with grace. Love it!

I knew this song but didn't know it was from Sia. I was going through a rough time and the lyrics hit a chord. Later, while surfing YT, I came across this version of Breathe Me. Wow!

Chandelier is good but it's sound like something she had written for someone else.

Amazing. I didn't like Chandelier immediately, but the video helped the song grow on me.

I'm really excited for her new album! :)

BTW - We Are Born is a really great album, everyone should give it a listen.

Nice way of describing her.
I came across her album Some people have real problems just prior to her launch of We Are Born which happened to coincide with one of the toughest times I've ever been through. Her slow stuff is soothing, her uptempo stuff, uplifting and always kind of relatable.
I don't know if I'm going to like where the new direction is going.

Chandelier is good but it's sound like something she had written for someone else.
I can understand that. I wasn't sure what to think of it at first but at its core, it doesn't deviate from the themes she covers as a songwriter. Has a similar structure and message to Cloud.

Yeah the video shows off Sia's quirky side in a simple way. Judging from Youtube comments, it seems people were expecting something more literal and Rihanna-eque.

Some People Have Real Problems is one of the best albums I own!

Colour the Small One is also beautiful but very different to her later work.

Unrelated but I love Elastic Heart for HG: Catching Fire.

On another note, check out the comments on this video:

Looks like someone fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down.

So many nasty comments about her appearance. I understand why Sia doesn't want to famous, there's too many vacuous, critical people out there hiding behind a screen.

Funny you should say that, because she actually wrote it for Rihanna, but then decided to keep it for herself. :p

I kinda figured she wrote Chandelier for someone else. I'm glad she kept it because I don't think Rihanna could sing it as well. Sia has some crazy vocals when she feels like putting it to use lol.

Chandelier, Big Girls Cry and Elastic Heart are my top faves so far. <3
It's a shame it leaked so early. It still has like two weeks until release. @_@

It didn't actually "leak" in the traditional sense. It was put up for streaming on Austailian iTunes ( it comes out July 4th over there) and someone ripped the audio and then it "leaked".

I definately think that Chandelier and Fire Meets Gasoline were written with Rihanna in mind. For Chandelier I can hear Rihanna on the verses. Fire Meets Gasoline is so Rihanna I almost get their voices mixed up. :vlol: They both have similiar tones (which are to DIE for, so unique and with their accents on top its killer) Sia should just write for Rih all of the time seeing as Diamonds was MASSIVE. I LOVE both of them.

So, so good.

Hostage is absolutely rocking, reminiscent of We Are Born vibes. :jmp:
Free the Animal also memorable/jammable.

A good album overall but I think those songs are far more 'Sia' and outshine the other songs which kind of blend into each other.

Edit: Nevermind, I see that Hostage WAS actually from the We Are Born era!

I'll make this my last post on this thread and let it sink if it doesn't get anymore replies.


Sia Earns First No. 1 Album On Billboard 200 with '1000 Forms of Fear'

Singer-songwriter Sia nabs her first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 (http://www.billboard.com/charts/billboard-200) — and her best sales week ever — as "1000 Forms of Fear" debuts atop the list. The new album, released on Monkey Puzzle through RCA Records, sold 52,000 copies in the week ending July 13, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

The album was released Tuesday, July 8.

"Chandelier," meanwhile, recently became Sia's first top 20 hit on the Hot 100 (http://www.billboard.com/charts/hot-100)as a lead artist. It jumped 20-17 on the chart dated July 19.


One last note on "1000 Forms of Fear": It logs the lowest sales figure for a No. 1 album in nearly two years. It's the smallest since the Aug. 11, 2012 chart, when Zac Brown Band's "Uncaged" led the list with 48,000.

Great news, glad she's done so well.

Its a shame her popularity hasn't translated to much interest on here.

The album has some real dirges on there but Hostage and Free the Animal stand out against them nicely. Chandelier and Eye of the Needle are decent too. A very solid album overall though.
