Some People Have REAL Problems

(Hear Music; US: 8 Jan 2008; UK: 14 Jan 2008)

Review [1.Jan.2008]

These are all the video’s I can find for Sia’s surprise Billboard charting 2008 impulse item Some People Have Real Problems. There’s just something about this bizarre Australian that melts my jaded, critical heart. The best of her vids is her most recent, “Soon We’ll Be Found”. It’s undeniably beautiful, even if the music doesn’t do it for you. I often think she’s crazy, then I wonder why her music sounds so normal. She’s like a Bjork that doesn’t drag reporters down airport walkways and mentally explode on film sets. All that’s left is a nice voice, an endearing, impish personality, and a big effort. I can’t help rooting for her. She had me since Zero 7’s “Destiny”.


Sia - “Soon We’ll Be Found”
  


Sia - “The Girl You Lost to Cocaine”


Sia - “Buttons”


Sia - “Day Too Soon”
