Top Ten P!nk Songs
This weekend on 92.9, we are bringing you the Top 10 P!nk songs.
U and Ur Hand
Im Not Dead (2006)
In this song, Pink sings from the perspective of a girl who is at a bar, having a good time until a guy comes on to her and puts his hands on her. Bad move: Pink isn't looking for a guy who sees her as his entertainment for the evening, and she doesn't want him to buy her a drink.
What About Us
Beautiful Trauma (2017)
The lead single from Pink's Beautiful Trauma album, "What About Us" finds her addressing the politicians and decision makers, as she asks the poignant question, "What about us?"
The song succeeded in getting onto the radio playlists contrary to what Pink's record label executives predicted. "When I came back, the record company sat me down and told me that once you are over 35 and a female popstar, radio probably won't play you. I'm so glad I proved them wrong. It's nice,"
Cover Me In Sunshine
Single Release Only (2021)
"Cover Me In Sunshine" is a duet between Pink and her 9-year-old daughter, Willow Sage Hart. Released on February 12, 2021 during the COVID pandemic, the sweet song looks forward to a brighter future when lockdown is over. The mother-daughter duo first premiered the feel-good song on TikTok when Willow concluded a brief conversation by saying, "Or I could just sing 'Cover Me in Sunshine.'" She then sang a snippet of the tune. A couple of days later, they announced the official release of the track.
I'm Not Dead (2006)
Pink said "Who Knew" is about losing a loved one to drugs: "My life was insane, I was (in her youth) out of control and doing lots of stupid things. Some of my friends were selling crack, and I got into drugs too. I've always been honest about that, although I don't like going into details. I've got lots of young fans and I wouldn't want to give them any ideas.
Just Like Fire
Alice Through The Looking Glass (2016)
Pink co-wrote and recorded this celebration of individuality for Disney's movie Alice Through the Looking Glass. It marked the first time the songstress has written an original song for a live-action feature film. Pink also did a cover version of "White Rabbit" for the motion picture's marketing campaign. The song was only Pink's second solo release since 2013, following on from 2015's non-album single "Today's The Day," which also served as a theme tune for season 13 of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Blow Me One Last Kiss
The Truth About Love (2012)
This is the first single from Pink's sixth studio album. Little had been heard from Pink since 2010, as she had taken time off to be a mother to her baby daughter, Willow. The only new material that Pink released during that period was "Bridge Of Light," a one-off single from the Happy Feet Two soundtrack. Pink told Australia's Today Show : "It's a really fun song. I can picture everyone extremely drunk dancing late at night together. It's a very happy song, although it's angry."
Raise Your Glass
Greatest Hits... So Far (2010)
This anthemic song is the first single from Pink's greatest hits collection, Greatest Hits...So Far!!!. It is one of two new tracks on the compilation, along with "F---in Perfect." The song was produced by the Swedish hitmaker Max Martin and co-written by Pink. It raises a glass to all the "dirty little freaks" out there who are "wrong in all the right ways."
Just Give Me A Reason
The Truth About Love (2012)
This stripped-back piano piece was written by Pink with Fun frontman Nate Ruess. The song is about the desire to hold on to a relationship even when it appears to be breaking down, and was inspired by a hypothetical argument over butter. This was Pink's fourth #1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Get The Party Started
This pure party song came from an unlikely source. It was written by Linda Perry of 4 Non Blondes. This won the 2002 MTV Europe Music Award for Best Song. This earned a Grammy nomination for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance but lost to "Don't Know Why" by Norah Jones. The album was also nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album but again lost to Jones for Come Away With Me.
This song was co-written by and produced by Max Martin, who was behind the artist's prior hits "Who Knew" and "U And Ur Hand." Pink told the story of this song: "'So What' was a joke. I heard this beat from Max Martin. It's such a fun beat, so fun. And I was actually kidding when I said, 'I guess I just lost my husband, I don't know where he went.' Ha ha, that's really funny. Let's keep it and it just kind of went from there. And it just got more and more wrong. The more lines we wrote, the wronger it was. And we kept it because I don't really care.
