Every few years, I discover a musician whose music goes to the core of my heart... or the heart of my core.... hmm... Being something of a musician myself (one who has always been afraid to write her own music), I always think that this is because our musical and lyrical cadences are in step with one another. "If I wrote songs," I imagine, "they would be just like this."
My latest musical BFF is Sia. Her child-like sense of humor and adventure mixed with wisdom and "serious" emotion is something that I've felt is hard to find in other people. So many of her songs are really encapsulating what I feel right now- on both the silly and the serious sides of life. Below are music videos from my favorite songs of hers (where I am allowed):
My absolute favorite Sia song is Breathe Me. The music video also feels like something I would make (too bad the Universal Media Group felt it was uncool to allow me to embed it in my blog or offer it in higher quality- you have to click the link to watch it on youtube).
Second favorite (bonus for the great lyrics) is Academia:
Soon We'll be Found (again- just the kind of music video I would want to make and I can't embed it here).
Enjoy! I certainly do...
