A mediocre rap-inspired rock singer from Philadelphia, Pink (Alecia-Beth Moore) became a star thanks to the dance-rock of
M!ssundaztood (2001), containing the hits
Get The Party Started, Just Like a Pill
(the quintessential example of her danceable singalongs)
and Don't Let Me Get Me,, mostly composed by Linda Perry.
After the yawn-inspiring Try This (2003), mostly composed by Rancid's
Tim Armstrong and containing Feel Good Time (co-written by Beck and
William Orbit for a film soundtrack),
I'm Not Dead (2006), engineered by producer Max Martin
was highlighted by Butch Walker's Leave Me Alone.
It became one of the world's top-selling album of the year.
She struck gold again with the punkish nursery-rhyme
So What (another Max Martin creation), off
Why Did I Ever Like You is the childish singalong that bookends the collection with So What.
The hard-rocking Ave Mary A alternates frantic rap and operatic shout.
A bouncy rhythm (of handclaps) propels the breezy refrain of This Is How It Goes Down (that features another rap detour).
Her songs were sufficiently eclectic
(the music-hall skit Bad Influence, the
catchy dance number
the acoustic rant
the rowdy blues-rock
although a bit sterile.
Raise Your Glass (2010), produced by the usual duo of Max Martin and Shellback, is a rousing folk-dance anthem.
The Truth About Love (2012) contains the power-ballad Try.
