This song man. I love it so much. I don’t even know if this post will adequately put across how much I love it or how it makes me feel but I’ll try my best.
Alive has been out for a couple of years now and while I’m sure I heard it back in 2015 and liked it, it wasn’t till mid-2016 that I properly fell for the song. Maybe it’s because at that point I was almost a year being unemployed so the never give up feeling of the song started to resonate with me more. Just listening to it would give me a boost as I’d sing and dance around my living room.
I think that is one of the things that makes me love it so much. You can just scream/sing along to it knowing that you’ve survived whatever’s been thrown at you and you’re still strong and moving on. It’s a great feel-good song, but you can also feel the pain as well thanks to Sia’s amazing vocals.
Alive is fast becoming one of my all-time favourite songs, it’s powerful, emotional and is just a great piece of music. I love it more than words can describe.
