TGIF: Listen to Sia's Power Pop Ballad "One Million Bullets"

Alright, so, I've been a terrible blogger this month. Between work, personal, travel, getting sick - things have been b-a-n-a-n-a-s. No excuses though. Let's get back to regular programming.

I have to admit that this recent Sia craze - the interpretative dances, not seeing her face (I mean, I know what she looks like, don't you?), her poppier new direction - has been sort of lost on me. I really enjoyed Sia in the early millennium years, and was a wholehearted supporter of her return to the mainstream and pop makeover, but quite simply, just haven't been hooked on any of her songs.

Until last week, when I was curating a playlist for the teen crowd and came across one of the latest singles off her forthcoming January album, This is Acting. "One Million Bullets" has just about every anthemic ingredient needed for a full-blown top-of-chair, chest pumping episode that only the most triumphant power-pop songs deserve (think: most things Adele).

Anyway, my love for this song has surprised me, and tells me that I'm ready to welcome her next batch of tunes with open arms. Have a listen.
