A is for Alive by Sia

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.


  1. I randomly fall for songs years later.
    I`ll be like, “why didn’t I give it a chance the first time…or second or third time?”

    So you’re going with songs this year, Elena. Great choice!
    Totally going to be honest. I don’t listen to Sia’s song. I’ve heard of this one, but I’m kinda in a hole. Most my music is recommended to me by Youtube based on what I usually listen to.

    1. Yeah so often I hear a song, love it and rave about it to friends and they’re like “It was released years ago!”

      I get into a bit of a hole when it comes to music sometimes too. Now I’m listening to the radio on my way to work I do hear more “current and popular” music.

      Mine’s a bit of a mixture this year – it’s all my favourite things so songs, films, people, books, just about anything!
