Chandelier Music Video

Chandelier is a powerful song by Sia about struggling with addiction. It’s one of my favorite songs of all time and a must listen. The music video is brilliant. Watching it was a magical and ethereal experience. It perfectly depicts the emotion behind Sia’s singing in the erratic, energetic dancing of a young girl in a desolate apartment.
