Our Top 10 Sia songs list looks at the career of an Australian singer-songwriter and actress who hit it big around the world in the 2010s. However, Sia had been around for a long time before she reached worldwide fame with her 2014 single “Chandelier.”  Her career began in the mid-1990s with a band entitled Crisp. Eventually, the band would break up and Sia would begin a solo career. She released her first solo album in 1997 entitled OnlySee. From that point on, Sia would release nine studio albums and sixty-five singles. She has also been in high demand as a musical collaborator and featured singer with many other famous musical artists.

Sia stands as one of the most popular artists of the past ten years alongside artists such as Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Adele and Dua Lipa. Our Top 10 Sia songs list features some of her career highlights.

# 10 – Taken For Granted

We open up our top 10 Sia songs list with the singer’s debut single entitled “Taken For Granted.” There is a cool classical feel meets film noir groove to this song. It’s so original sounding. The song was released on the album entitled Healing Is Difficult. The album was released in 2000. Sia’s debut single did well on the charts in the United Kingdom where it reached all the way up to number ten. We just love that guitar sound at the beginning of the tune and the way it is met by those striking string lines.

# 9 – Wild Ones

Continuing with our top 10 Sia songs list we take a listen to the mega-hit single “Wild Ones.” Sia’s vocal on this is spectacular. It’s amazing how she could sound so different on so many various records. The song “Wild One,” was released by Flo Rida and featured Sia as the lead singer. Smart move Flo Rida. It paid off very well commercially as the song hit number one on the Australian Music Charts. It also hit number one in Canada and New Zealand.
