Cheap Thrills - Sia ft. Sean Paul



The Experience: If I can light the world up for just one day... Is it better to burn bright and fast, or to make a lasting difference?



Music video: The lyric video follow couples through a dance competition interrupted by masked couple wearing the signature Sia wigs... and completely out of anyone's league. In spite of their dumpy wardrobe and odd appearance, they win. And set a trend for everyone else. 

The Meaning of Cheap Thrills: Sia redefines Cheap Thrills in yet another installment of her album This Is Acting. The album focuses on others' opinions and feelings - things Sia doesn't necessarily agree with, but still wanted to explore. Cheap Thrills are normally shallow and empty - it's Friday night. They're normally not worth much - I don't need dollar bills to have fun tonight. But Sia also offers a new kind of cheap thrill: love. It's cheap because you can't buy it. But it's worth more than all the money you could ever have.

Ask yourself: Can you just be yourself by yourself? Or do you need to take everyone else into account?

Album: This Is Acting (2016)

LYRICS:

Come on, come on, turn the radio on
It's Friday night and I won't be long
Gotta do my hair, I put my make up on
It's Friday night and I won't be long

Til I hit the dance floor
Hit the dance floor
I got all I need
No I ain't got cash
No I ain't got cash
But I got you baby

Baby I don't need dollar bills to have fun tonight
(I love cheap thrills)
Baby I don't need dollar bills to have fun tonight
(I love cheap thrills)
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

Come on, come on, turn the radio on
It's Saturday and I won't be long
Gotta paint my nails, put my high heels on
It's Saturday and I won't be long

Til I hit the dance floor
Hit the dance floor
I got all I need
No I ain't got cash
No I ain't got cash
But I got you baby

Baby I don't need dollar bills to have fun tonight
(I love cheap thrills)
Baby I don't need dollar bills to have fun tonight
(I love cheap thrills)
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

(I love cheap thrills)
(I love cheap thrills)
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
Oh, oh

Baby I don't need dollar bills to have fun tonight
(I love cheap thrills)
Baby I don't need dollar bills to have fun tonight
(I love cheap thrills)
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

La, la, la, la, la, la
(I love cheap thrills)
La, la, la, la, la, la
(I love cheap thrills)
La, la, la, la, la, la
(I love cheap thrills)
La, la, la, la, la
(I love cheap thrills)
