Single Review: P!nk - Raise your glass

P!nk Raise Your Glass single cover Pictures, review
Raise your Glass cover
After touring for what seems like an eternity Pink's back with a new track called “Raise your glass” from her upcoming greatest hits album, “Greatest Hits...So Far!!!” which is released on the 15th of November 2010. 

As with past albums the lead off track is an up-tempo, feel good, rockpop track designed to placate fans (who have been without new material) while simultaneously reminding the short term minded world that this feisty female is still about. 

The song starts of well enough, with an interesting guitar chord progression and a bouncy vocal delivery but it quickly descends into mediocrity with the obligatory loud, shouty chorus. Even after a couple of listens I’m still no more inclined to raise my glass up, except maybe to throw it at the stereo, than I was before I listened to the song.

Raise your glass is basically Pink on autopilot, delivering to the world what she thinks the world thinks she does. However, since she’s been working so hard and so long wowing people on tour (me included), I am willing to let this clich├ęd, predictable and fairly pedestrian song slide.

 2.5/5
OVERALL: P!nk extra light ie shite.





Raise Your glass lyrics

Right right, turn off the lights,
We're gonna lose our minds tonight,
What's the deal, yo?

I love when it's all too much,
5am turn the radio up
Where's the rock and roll?

Party Crasher,
Penny Snatcher,
Call me up if you want gangsta
Don't be fancy, just get dancey
Why so serious?

So raise your glass if you are wrong,
In all the right ways,
All my underdogs,
We will never be never be anything but loud
And nitty gritty dirty little freaks
Won't you come on and come on and raise your glass,
Just come on and come on and raise your glass

Slam slam, oh hot damn
What part of party don't you understand,
Wish you'd just freak out (freak out already)
Can't stop, coming in hot,
I should be locked up right on the spot
It's so on right now (so fuckin on right now)

Party Crasher,
Penny Snatcher,
Call me up if you want gangsta
Don't be fancy, just get dancey
Why so serious?

So raise your glass if you are wrong,
In all the right ways,
All my underdogs,
We will never be never be anything but loud
And nitty gritty dirty little freaks
Won't you come on and come on and raise your glass,
Just come on and come on and raise your glass
Won't you come on and come on and raise your glass,
Just come on and come on and raise your glass

(oh shit my glass is empty, that sucks)

So if you're too school for cool,
And you're treated like a fool,
You can choose to let it go
We can always, we can always,
Party on our own

(so raise your) So raise your glass if you are wrong,
In all the right ways,
All my underdogs,
We will never be never be anything but loud
And nitty gritty, dirty little freaks
So raise your glass if you are wrong,
In all the right ways,
All my underdogs,
We will never be never be anything but loud
And nitty gritty, dirty little freaks
Won't you come on and come on and raise your glass,
Just come on and come on and raise your glass
Won't you come on and come on and raise your glass,(for me)
Just come on and come on and raise your glass (for me)
