Song of the Day: Sia “Santa’s Coming For Us”
Quirky pop priestess Sia has added holiday music to her list of musical forms bearing her signature idiosyncratic stamp. Everyday is Christmas is her album of new all-original holiday material. While avoiding the usual traditional holiday classics, Sia doesn’t stray far from holiday pop traditions, especially those from the 50s/60s heyday of Christmas tunes we’ve all come to love (or detest, depending on your point of view of the most wonderful time of the year). The end result is something that is a little different while still seeming oddly familiar.
On lead album track “Santa’s Coming For Us,” Sia again utilizes the lightly loping reggae beat that made tunes like “Cheap Thrills” dance floor-filling international hits.
With a subversively cheerful video clip starring J.B. Smoove, Dax Shepard, Kristen Bell, Henry Winkler, Susan Lucci, Sophia Lillis, Wyatt Oleff and Caleb McLaughlin, the tune vies for your affection as a new holiday classic.
