18 Sia Songs To Lift Your Spirits And Let It Go In Any Situation

But even if she was held hostage, she's since escaped and released songs with the best metaphor and advice you could need for finally letting go of your past. Are you still stressing over your ex? Need some motivation? Need a song to aid your broken heart?  Let Sia voice guide you as you light up those regrettable moments of your life. Her songs will make you feel like you can conquer the world.

Check out these 18 Sia songs that will pair with every situation, over a pint of ice cream and warm blankets.

1) When you are in the mood for a night out — Cheap Thrills

Sia song Cheap Thrills is all about having fun with your friends and being happy to have each other's company without spending a fortune.

But I don't need no money.
As long as I can feel the beat
I don't need no money.
As long as I keep dancing

Money is not a prerequisite for happiness. Money isn't as important as people think of enjoyment and pleasure. You can feel the beat and keep dancing, listening to this song by Sia without spending a dime.

2) When you need to make the best out of the worst situation — Titanium

The lyrics of this song uses different literary elements such as metaphors, imagery, and symbolism to portray the message to be strong hearted & strong-willed when life throws its worse at you and not to crumble under the weight of the world

I'm bulletproof, nothing to lose.
Fire away, fire away
Ricochet, you take your aim.
Fire away, fire away.

Sia song Titanium uses guns and bullets as a metaphor for the hateful words people might say to us. 'bulletproof' here refers to cancelling out the hurtful words in your mind by following it up with an uplifting comment.

3) When you need an empowerment anthem — Unstoppable

This Sia song will make you feel like you can do anything ever, no matter the situation. It revolves around standing up against those who want to pull you down.

Are you feeling encouraged yet? No? Well, here's what the chorus is:
I'm invincible
Yeah, I win every single game.

'Unstoppable' is one of Sia songs that gets you to feel like you can conquer the world, and it's no surprise that this song was remixed as an Olympic anthem for the 2016 Rio games. It will make you break your repeat button as well. So put your armour on and keep your chin up because you got this!

4) When you are going through a breakup — Elastic Heart

In this song, Sia uses thick skin and an elastic heart to show people that she is strong, but in all reality, she wants to protect herself and keep herself away from anything that might cause her pain. You can hear her voice cracking when she sings.

Now another one bites the dust.
And let's be clear, I trust no one.

And you'll find your heart breaking right along with hers. It's a great song to listen to over your favourite ice cream, a warm blanket, along with a good cathartic cry.

5) When you are in the mood for a giddy dance — Move Your Body

Won't you let me be your rhythm tonight?
Move your body, move your body.

This Sia song can single-handedly bring the whole club to their feet.

6) When you need to cry— Breath Me

This Sia song is very vulnerable and honest. It's a sentiment that most of us can relate to regardless of our age and gender, the feeling of not being good enough.

I am small and needy.
Warm me up and breathe me.

Sometimes it becomes increasingly difficult to protect yourself; everything encroaches at once. You may feel like you are often being pulled in fifty different directions, and you may need a friend along with this song to help you get through this feeling.

7) When you need to seize the day— Chandelier

This Sia song has tricked you. This song can make you feel good for a moment, but it hides the underlying sadness about addiction and its horrendous cycle.

I'm gonna fly like a bird through the night, feel my tears as they dry.
I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier.

So, the next time you're dancing up to this song, remember to tell yourself, I'm going to seize the day.

8) When you are in Love— Fire Meet Gasoline.

Flame you came from me, fire meets gasoline.
Fire meets gasoline. I'm burning alive.

The song Fire Meet Gasoline is a slow-burning introduction to a couple who are caught up in a steamy love affair, climaxing with her distinctive husky vocals with some emotive lyrics.

9) When you feel like giving up— Never Give Up

Sometimes it feels like somehow Sia gets all of us. Let's take a look at this Sia song lyrics.

And I won't let you get me down.
I'll keep gettin' up when I hit the ground.
Oh, never give up, no, never give up, no, no, oh.

Overall, this song is about overcoming obstacles, pushing on in the face of inevitable defeat, and never letting those obstacles prevent you from getting things done.

10) When you are in Love— Helium.

Yeah, I wanted to play tough, thought I could do all this on my own
But even Superwoman sometimes needed Superman's soul.

The song 'Helium' is about Love's uplifting effect, the same way helium lifts a balloon. It's a song about the strength that she gets from being in Love.

11) When you want to feel confident— Bird set free.

This song will send you into a swirl of emotions, from sadness to feeling accomplished all at the same time.

Oh, yes, there's a scream inside that we all try to hide. 
We hold on so tight, but I don't wanna die, no.

Every time Sia sings 'I don't wanna die,' you will feel chills running through your body, and after listening to this song, you'll find yourself in the melodies.

12) When you need some positivity and motivation— Alive

And you're taught to cry into your pillow
But I survived
I'm still breathing, I'm still breathing.

Every line in this song will speak to you in such a powerful way and pick you up when you thought you had hit rock bottom. It will remind you to be strong and live through the moment.

13) When you want to confess your Love— Dusk till Dawn

The progression of lyrics in this song has a very Bonnie & Clyde feel to it, and you can't help but love it.

But you'll never be alone.
I'll be with you from dusk till dawn.

This song will have you wanting to belt the chorus out in the form of a love confession to someone. It is one of the most romantic Sia songs.

14) When you're having a bad day— Big girls cry

Yes! Fergie was lying. Newsflash! Big Girls DO cry! And there's absolutely nothing wrong with that.

And I don't care if I don't look pretty.
Big girls cry when their hearts are breaking.

This song perfectly describes the emotions that every girl goes through, and it reminds us that crying is not a sign of weakness but one of strength. Burying our feelings in the name of big girl will make us feel pressured, and we will always be on the verge of exploding.

15) When you need to complete your assignment— Genius.

The song, 'Genius,' is playful, and it's addictive; it's LSD. It creates a contemplative mood, but not a party one, despite being slightly upbeat. Only a Genius would listen to a song sing like this.

Do you think I'm helpless?
My algebra gon' equal you every time.

16) When you need a perfect Workout song— The greatest

I'm free to be the greatest; I'm alive
I'm free to be the greatest here tonight, the greatest.

Sia and Kendrick Lamar's song The Greatest. serves as a tribute to victims of hate crimes in the LGBTQ+ community. It honours Orlando Pulse Nightclub victims with poignant and uplifting lyrics and a message of hope for those struggling to fit in the world.

17) When you want to listen to something addictive — Audio

The LSD album, hands down, has one of the most moving yet abstract song collaborations of the century. Labrinth, Sia, and Diplo are the underrated super trio who revolutionized pop into a rhythmic album. Sia song Audio reflects music creation as inspiration from a beat or experience that flows with a melody.

We can't live on… Without the rhythm 
We can't live on…. Without the rhythm.

The above line from the song emphasizes how people worldwide cannot live without music as it's a universal language that everyone can understand. It connects continents and overcomes distances and cultures.

18) When you need to be a part of the latest trend— The Snowman.

I want you to know that I'm never leaving.
'Cause I'm Mrs Snow, 'til death, we'll be freezing.

Sia song 'Snowman' was initially released in 2018. However, the 'Snowman Challenge' has surfaced over Instagram reels where users attempt to sing a verse from the song in one breath.

That's the end, one and all, to the amazing playlist of Sia songs.

Sia's success story stood tall to this very day as one of the most powerful voices to ever emerge from Australia and transcended the Australian success story. We could do an entire playlist dedicated entirely to her songs, but we have focused on creating a playlist that features songs that will inspire you in whatever situation you're in.
