David Guetta Samples RENT? Police?

 

Titanium by David Guetta featuring Sia has 57,470,870 views on youtube right now.  Holy moly, that is insane.  I love the song and music video and I’m happy to report that they are starting to play it on the radio (at least, just starting in America).

I think Sia deserves a little more credit than “featuring,” but whatevs.  On wikipedia it said that Katy Perry was offered the song first, but she turned it down (um, why?), and then Mary J Blige recorded a demo version that leaked. I like Mary J Blige, but I think Sia sounds better for this song. On the other hand, I can understand the words better in Mary J’s version.

 

Today when I was listening to the song, the intro really reminded me of something. All of a sudden, it hit me. RENT. Any rentheads out there? The guitar at the beginning sounds similar (imho) to One Song Glory.

 

Wikipedia referenced a review of the song comparing the opening guitar to Every Breath I Take by The Police. Good point!

I think every single version of this song has at least one comment calling it the “facebook anthem.”

So, I am asking the universe for a mash up of these songs.  Actually, on second thought, that might turn out to be a hot mess.  Either way, I will def be listening to some more Sia, with or without David Guetta.

Robyn – Dancing Queen

I’m hoping that Robyn gets an SNL bump (like Adele,who is also amazing) and starts getting radio time in America.

Robyn is baller.  She dances and she is confident and she has badass hair.

On SNL she performed:

If I had my wish she would have done one more song (someone mash these three up please!):
