11 Reasons Why We Love Sia’s Cheap Thrills So Much!. . .

Cheap Thrills
is more than just this year’s party anthem. It is one of those songs that can put a smile on your face for sure. The song gave Sia her first Billboard #1 track and made her a household name. From a fun beat to a kickass video – the song literally has everything that you can ask for. Here’s what makes it so damn special!

  1. It has a perfect beat

    Though the song can get any party started, it doesn’t have a typical electric beat to it. It starts with a subtle rhythm that can certainly get you moving
  2. The lyrics are so damn good!

    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

    Source.Not just the beat, even the lyrics are so light and fun. I mean, who doesn’t like to go out on a Friday night, right?
  3. It encourages us to have fun without money
    SourceLet’s face it – as millennials, we are all broke. This is what makes Cheap Thrills our theme song. Everyone can have fun by going to exotic places or driving luxury cars. The real fun is by having cheap thrills.
  4. Her vocals!
    SourceSia has given us songs like Chandelier and Titanium with her flawless vocals and Cheap Thrills is no such exception. My heart skips a beat every time I hear her amazing vocals.
  5. The song is about overcoming rejection
    SourceIt was originally written for Rihanna, but was rejected by her manager. Later, Sia recorded it herself and included it in This is Acting (an album that features other rejected songs written by Sia). It took Cheap Thrills 23 weeks to be no.1 after its release, which makes the song such a winner.
  6. The simplicity of the video
    SourceIt is not about driving a Lamborghini or having a party at the Venice Beach. It is the simplicity of the video that won our hearts. The song has two versions (each having its own video). I personally love the Performance Edit version, in which Maddie Ziegler gave an amazing performance with two other dancers (Nick Lanzisera and Wyatt Rocker).
  7. And all those amazing dance moves

    Just have a look at the well-choreographed dance that is featured in the video. How can you not love these weird dance moves?

  8. It teaches us that age doesn’t matter
    SourceSia is one of the oldest female artists to score a debut #1 hit in more than 25 years. The song teaches us that age is nothing but a number!
  9. It has so many amazing covers

    Just visit YouTube and you will realize that the song has almost limitless covers. I love the Carnatic music cover of the song the most that gave the track a peculiar desi feel.

  10. And has different renditions as well

    Okay! This might surprise you, but its Hindi parody Sasti Masti isn’t bad at all! In fact, it grows on you.

  11. It makes everyone happy
    SourceWell, this is the most evident reason why we all love Cheap Thrills so much. It has a fun and happy feel to it that would make you forget everything else in no time.

So what are you waiting for? Turn the beat up and let it all go, my friend. Hit the dance floor!
