by Sia (2008)
If you read this blog on a regular basis, you know that I’ve written about Sia before. Actually, I write about her A LOT, because she’s one of my favorite artists. So, when I had to choose only ONE of her songs for my top 100 songs of the decade, it was a very tough choice.
Sia was originally introduced to American audiences as the main voice of the band Zero 7. She provides lead vocals on several of their albums. Her first solo CD was released in 2000, but it wasn’t until her song “Breathe Me” was included in the series finale of HBO’s Six Feet Under, that people really started to take notice.
I didn’t even realize that she had been the vocalist for Zero 7, when I started getting into her solo work in 2008. That was the year she released her fourth studio album Some People Have Real Problems. It’s my favorite Sia CD to date, and my favorite song on the disc is “Electric Bird.” That’s why I chose it as the song to be included in my top 100. Hopefully you’ll enjoy it as much as I do. Sia has a new CD coming out in April of 2010. It’s definitely worth checking out, as is everything else she does.
