Sia - Clap Your Hands

| Kerri
I've been neglecting the good things
What I mean is I need the good things
I'm finding the light in the good things
I might need help to see the good things

Shake me out of my misery
Make me get out and wiggle it
Clap your hands, clap your hands
Turn the lights on my nights this is life and we only get one chance
Clap your hands, clap your hands
Come on dance, take a chance on romance, we only get one shot at love

Released in 2010, this groovy-bassed, melancholic dance track was not one of Sia's biggest hits (although NME thought so before her last record came out), doing the best in her native Australia by breaking the top 20. Anyway, I love it and have listened to it often when I needed to cheer up, or wanted someone to commiserate with me as I prepped to go out, haha. So... maybe this isn't super-duper-happy-feel-good, but it is about wanting to feel that way, and doing what you can to feel that way. And her carpool karaoke with James Corden (from earlier this year) will make you feel that way! 

P.S. Keith has a story about meeting Sia after an intimate SXSW show many years ago. Maybe he'll chime in and share it. Or not. :)
