    Lyrics video:


    This is a chart-topping pop song.

    Of course, since I don't listen to the radio, I just discovered it. ...

    Of course, creativity in music is dead, so it probably sucks.

    In general, I prefer acoustic versions (as per my original post in this thread with Pentatonix). For some reason I don't like that one. The voice needs the instrumental backup, in my opinion, to carry the intensity of emotion in the chorus. She actually has to hold her voice back so she doesn't overpower the piano in the acoustic version, where the instrumental version it sounds as if she is belting it out as powerfully as she can.

    I agree with you about the chorus. Although in the first verse especially I like it in a lower key because it fits the whole theme of the dark side of partying - the feeling of emptiness that comes with not being able to feel anything. I love both versions though. I really like Sia.

    It might help to remind you that, as an INTJ, I'm not given to "partying" to the degree that I'd even begin to encounter a "dark side" to it. I will listen to friends' drama after-the-fact after I've gone dancing, and sometimes it's like they live in a different universe.

    I've been through enough break-ups, though, to understand the "1-2-3-drink". Psychological pain is difficult to manage. Fortunately the pain eventually subsides and real life again starts to energize things.

    glad I'm not the only guy here who thinks these videos are amazing, especially compared to contemporary artists in the same genre such as lady gaga...Sia's videos blow them out of the water and are instant classics.

    I guess she's written a lot of songs for other artists as well. Like this one

    And don't forget Titanium, another Sia hit (singing, and co-writer), which also has a cool video. Based on her other music, her harmonies and writing style, I'm pretty sure she is responsible for the hook/chorus, which is the reason the song is a hit.



    What I've noticed lately, especially with YouTube becoming a medium, music videos are gaining much of the creativity they had back in the 80s with MTV. There was a long stretch there were they were just videos of performances with little if any attempt to convey a story with the song.

    As for writing the hooks for a song, it isn't as easy as one might think:
