Sia wrote her song `Chandelier` in under an hour

Los Angeles: Singer Sia says she wrote and recorded her hit single `Chandelier` in an hour. The lead single from the Aussie singer-songwriter`s new album 1000 Forms of Fear shot to number six in the UK charts, number two in the Australian charts and number 20 in the US Billboard Hot 100, reportedly.

"`Chandelier` took like four minutes to write the chords, then like 12-15 minutes to write the lyrics," the singer said.
"Probably 10 or 15 minutes to cut the vocals," she added.

The singer also discussed the nature of `Chandelier` and how its lyrics, rooted in alcoholism, set it apart from other pop songs.
