P!nk - Raise Your Glass

After four studio albums and one live record, P!nk is preparing to release her first compilation.  Titled, Greatest Hits... So Far!!!, the collection will include sixteen of her previous hit singles and four new tracks.  The first of her new tracks is the album's current single, "Raise Your Glass".  The song has already entered the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100 and is gaining airplay consistently.

"Raise Your Glass" has a very mainstream "Top 40" sound to it.  While it may be polished and catchy like the songs of Katy Perry and Ke$ha, P!nk has the vocal talent to back up the pop formula.  It isn't auto-tuned down to a robotic voice.  Like many pop songs, the chorus is the highlight.

According to P!nk, the lyrics are a "celebration for people who feel left out from the popular crowd".  It's a feel good song about being the underdog.  It has the same tough, and somewhat humorous, attitude that her previous singles had.  I predict the song shoots up to number one on the charts.

The single is available on iTunes right now and Greatest Hits... So Far!!! is out on November 16.  If you already have all of P!nk's singles and want to pass on the compilation, "Raise Your Glass" is worth downloading.  Keep reading to check out the music video for "Raise Your Glass"...


  1. It is a wonderful song and I am happy that it gained airplay!

  2. When I first heard the song I thought it was an awful attempt to copy California Gurls success but it has grown on me. The timing is interesting to me too. While it's consistently in 4/4 time it has a feel of alternating measure of 3/4 and 5/4. I'm not sure what the song writers intended.

    One of my pet peeves about the song is the added mistakes before the last chorus. She comes in early and says oops but that contradicts the overall polished feel of the song. It's almost contradictory to have such rebellious and raw intentions with such over-produced backing music.
