I love the album cover for Sia's new album. I have NEVER heard of her, however.<br><br>
Anyone here listen to her? Can you fill in the blank for me:<br><br>
If you like ____________, you will like Sia.<br><br>
Thanks!

Nobody? Really? But I am seeing her CD EVERYWHERE. Surely there is ONE MDC mama who listens to this gal who paints on her face in marker....

I like Sia. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Though I don't listen to her solo album(s) much, I really really like the song "Throw it all away" she did with Zero 7. NPR ran it a lot, so it really stuck on me after awhile. I also like "Passing by," and "Somersault."<br><br>
While she has such a lovely, one of a kind voice, she is definitely one of those artists that I am so thankful for iTunes, and I can pick and choose what songs I want to have of hers.<br><br><i>If you like</i> The Bird and the Bee, <i>you will like Sia.</i><br><br>

Thanks! I have never heard of The Bird and The Bee. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
However, I found her site (so hard these days, no? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">). <a href="http://www.siamusic.net/main.html" target="_blank">Sia</a><br><br>
Check it out, it's so quirky!<br><br>
And I realized that I totally heard one of her songs YESTERDAY morning before posting here and I didn't even realize it!<br><br>
Our public radio station played "Electric Bird" and I just loved it, even remembered the name (which I don't do). I just didn't realize it was by Sia. Isn't that funny?<br><br>
I think I'm going to have to get the album.<br><br>
I love female voices, but I realized that I generally prefer male songwriters because they are usually more clever <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">: Sorry ladies! I'm thinking of Ben Folds (<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yummy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yummy">) and Bare Naked Ladies et al. Often, female writers get trapped in one of two camps: 1) Love Songs or 2) Quirky but not that listen-able. (i.e. later Fiona Apple).
