Better late than never, right? I told Gerard that he had to hold me to this and he did. I was listening to one of my favorite podcasts this week and the hosts were taking me on a trip down music memory lane.
Alecia Beth Moore better known as P!nk has numerous chart topping hits that highlight her powerful and raspy rocker voice. Her solo career spans over almost two decades. Her debut album Can't Take Me Home was produced by Babyface and landed her a spot on the smash swanky hit "Lady Marmalade" alongside Mya, Christina Aguilera, and Lil' Kim. Five albums and countless awards and accolades later, P!nk is a activist, wife, and two time mom.
Here are five of my favorite P!nk songs:
Get The Party Started-This used to be on the radio all the time in the early 2000s. 17 years later P!nk can still get a party started.
U + Ur Hand-This song was popular in 2006, the first year of my high school career. I lost 3 or 4 white USB iPod Shuffles that year and this song was on each and every one of them. One of P!nk's peak feminist anthems.
Please Don't Leave Me-This song comes from the 2008 album, Funhouse. At the time P!nk and her husband, Carey Hart were going through a separation. There's something about the raw, unedited feel of this song and album that's still relevant today.
Just Give Me A Reason-
"Just give me a reason, just a little bit's enough. Just a second we're not broken just bent, and we can learn to love again."
Waterfall (ft. Stargate & Sia)-While I was digging through P!nk's discography I saw that she teamed up with the incomparable Sia for a new single, a collaboration I didn't know I needed. Stargate provides the beat while P!nk and Sia take control. Their voices compliment each other so perfectly. PLEASE give this track a spin.
Let me know in the comments if reading about P!nk took you back a bit OR if you never heard of/paid attention to her.
