I do not have much to go on here, but this is driving me crazy! Can you guys help me find this song? Also posted to whatwasthatone, but this comm is more active.

It's a song that I believe is currently popular because I've heard it before in commercials. Just a while ago, I heard it during a transition from the Ohio State/Northwestern game to commercial (in case anyone else is watching and heard it). It's got an upbeat dance beat and a woman singing. The only lyrics I can remember are something about "the lights" and a long "oh" right after, or maybe it was two of them.

I should add that the "the lights" part I remember was in the chorus of the song, and it was at the end of a line. Like "_____________ the lights __ ohhh."

I should also add that after playing around with my piano app, I've got a G for "the," up to A for "lights" and down to E for whatever preposition comes after. The "ohh" is a melisma that I remember as something like DEG. (likely not the actual notes, but intervals sound right)

Any ideas?

Edit: It's not "Lights" be Ellie Goulding. I am terrible with pop music, but I do happen to know that one.

Edit Part 2: It's "Applause" by Lady Gaga! The part that goes "Give me that thing that I love (I'll turn the lights on)." Thank goodness, because I was seriously going to stay up all night looking. Thanks for all of your help, guys!
