BEST NEW VIDEOS: SIA - CHEAP THRILLS

Sia - Cheap Thrills

According to BRW Magazine, Sia is worth AU$20 million (that’s the Australian dollar for you economically illiterate), and yet her newest single, “Cheap Thrills,” is anchored by the hook. I guess if you can afford to go without, it feels pretty good… I wouldn’t know. 

Teaming up once again with her favorite dancer Maddie Ziegler and her iconic two-tone wig, Sia put on a jaw-dropping performance on the set of American Idol in which all she did was stand by the side of the stage and sing. In an egoless move, Sia lets Ziegler and the other two dancers take stage. And boy do they put on a show. And despite my cynicism in the paragraph above, this is a massive pop song that is likely to burrow its way into your very soul. Listen to it as you take in the performance below:

 

SIA “CHEAP THRILLS”

“Cheap Thrills” is the lead single of Sia’s forthcoming album, This Is Acting, and is available now on iTunes and every other digital distributor you could think of. We’ll leave you with the lyrics to this infectious jam.

come on, come on, turn the radio on
it's friday night and i won't be long
gotta do my hair, i put my make up on
it's friday night and i won't be long

til i hit the dance floor
hit the dance floor
i got all i need
no i ain't got cash
i ain't got cash
but i got you baby

baby i don't need dollar bills to have fun tonight
(i love cheap thrills)
baby i don't need dollar bills to have fun tonight
(i love cheap thrills)
but i don't need no money
as long as i can feel the beat
i don't need no money
as long as i keep dancing

come on, come on, turn the radio on
it's saturday and i won't be long
gotta paint my nails, put my high heels on
it's saturday and i won't be long

til i hit the dance floor
hit the dance floor
i got all i need
no i ain't got cash
i ain't got cash
but i got you baby

baby i don't need dollar bills to have fun tonight
(i love cheap thrills)
baby i don't need dollar bills to have fun tonight
(i love cheap thrills)
but i don't need no money
as long as i can feel the beat
i don't need no money
as long as i keep dancing

(i love cheap thrills)
(i love cheap thrills)
i don't need no money
as long as i can feel the beat
i don't need no money
as long as i keep dancing
oh, oh

baby i don't need dollar bills to have fun tonight
(i love cheap thrills)
baby i don't need dollar bills to have fun tonight
(i love cheap thrills)
i don't need no money
as long as i can feel the beat
i don't need no money
as long as i keep dancing

la, la, la, la, la, la (i love cheap thrills)
