Wild!

While we were at the pool, Jack informed me that another Aussie singer is big in America.   Her name is Sia.  

I didn't know about her, but now I'm thinking maybe I have encountered her.

I wonder if she's on the Triple J top 100.   If she is, I would have seen her.

I'm going to go check.....

I just looked. 

I don't see her.

Jack seemed appalled that I had never heard of her.

I think I'm supposed to know every Australian celebrity in existence.

Yeah....I'm working on it.

Anyway, I just consulted Lord Wiki.

Sia is Sia Furler.  And although she's newly popular in America, she's not at all new to the music industry.

Her first album was released in 1997.

While I was researching that, I listened to this song.



I like it.

It's called "Soon We'll Be Found" and it was on an album released in 2008.

The song that's popular now in America is "Wild Ones". Sia sings with Flo Rida.



I didn't much like the song at the pool, but now it's starting to grow on me.

Jack just informed me that Sia was one of the advisers on  The Voice last year.   Lord Wiki might have mentioned that as well, but I only skimmed his stuff.   I did see that he mentioned Christina Aguilera, and she's on The Voice.

Never heard of Sia before - which isn't saying much because I don't watch The Voice type shows, rarely hear the radio etc.

Love the song, the singing and the video clip of Soon We'll Be Found.

Jack is obviously a young man who is very 'knowing' for his years. Please thank him for the introduction to Sia.

Fruitcake,

I'm rarely in the know when it comes to current popular music. But these days...Jack gives me a pretty decent education.

I'm glad I was able to pass some of it onto you ; )

For viewers of Six Feet Under, the song at the end of the final episode (when everyone's lives were playing out to the very end) was by Sia.

Thank you!

I'm going to try to find the name of the song....
