"Chandelier" by Sia (my favorite songs)
Billkozy on 05/02/2015
|Easily the best of this past Grammy Awards candidates for Record of the Year. First off let's just eliminate Sam Smith's winner "Stay With Me" because A.) he not only plagiarized Tom Petty's "I Won't Back Down", but B.) he had the obnoxious temerity to cry "I'm only 22 I've never even heard of the song." So he's a loser and not even worth discussing.|
Iggy Azalea's nominee "Fancy" kinda just bores me.
And there's Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off" and Meghan Trainor's "All About That Bass: both fine catchy tunes, but without the emotional heft, thrill, and gravitas that I feel when I hear "Chandelier". It hit me like a ton of bricks from the very first time I heard it and it still remains resonant with me.
At least Billboard magazine chose this as their Best Song of 2014.
And that crazy video. Hoo boy. Shades of "Blade Runner"?
