These pop songs have dark meanings behind them that we bet you were oblivious to! “Lights” by Ellie Goulding was a huge hit, but while it could be interpreted simply as a story about facing your inner demons, Ellie actually drew upon memories of her deep-seated childhood fear, sleeping with the lights off, to compose the airy electropop single. The 'Chandelier' Sia actually happens to be singing about swinging from is a metaphor for her treacherous battle with alcoholism.
