Pink - Funhouse

Shoutout to all my pop fan followers and readers today. Frankly, I'm shocked that no one has dropped a Pink album in the Suggestion Box. I know a bunch of you enjoy her music - so it's a bit odd. Regardless, her new single 'F***in' Perfect' has been all over the radio as of late, and it made me think of doing an album by her. "Pink's" real name is Alecia Beth Moore and she was born in 1979 in Philadelphia, PA. She was born a healthy baby, but was diagnosed with asthma shortly after birth. That really plagued her childhood. She starting writing at a very young age as an outlet for her frustrations. She began performing at local clubs at age 14, and eventually formed a three girl group called 'Choice' at 16. They even got a small deal with LA Reid and worked with different people trying to get a record out there. It never happened, but it was probably great experience for her solo stuff. She took the name Pink oddly enough from the film Reservoir Dogs and the Mr. Pink character. Her debut album dropped in 2000 and saw solid success. Her sophomore album is a nice 5x platinum - her best selling to date. I decided to run with this album for no other reason that it has my personal fave Pink track on it (which will be number one in the Top 3) Although this record is only 1x platinum in the states, it's an odd 11x in Australia. I have no idea why. She's had some ups and downs with her husband Carey Hart, but they are expecting their first child soon. Her music career is up and down too. She has her fair share of critics and fans alike. I'm a bit on the fence. I wouldn't actively listen to this - but it's not the worst pop music ever. It's certainly worth checking out today if you've never heard the whole thing. I'm pretty certain if you're a popper, you'll enjoy this.

  1. A bit ago I was tempted to name Pink as a suggestion for you I just didn't for some reason. Heck, more than likely I was listening to music and forgot completely.

    Anywho, Pink has been my girl for a long time. When I saw 'There You Go' for the first time, I was thinking I gotta get a motorcycle and crash it through a window, ASAP! I love it. Getting back, I haven't even heard that single yet, but I'll be sure to. I'm glad you reviewed her on your own. I think she's an escelent singer and she has a grit that I'm drawn to.

    CHEERS :)

  2. Hey! Thanks for the comment!

    I was expecting your thoughts on Soulja Boy!

    I think she's one of the better pop artists out there today. Her music is very personal and she's very unique. I don't have any doubt that her "persona" is her in real life. Her songs seem real and believable. Her and Gaga would top the unique charts for me.

  3. This is the only Pink album I've ever purchased. It's also one of the few CDs I kept when I got rid of my massive pile o' CDs.

    I really love this album.

    My top 3 would be:
    1 - Bad Influence
    2 - Mean
    3 - Glitter in the Air

  4. You just tossed them? Not even sold them? That's crazy!

    I enjoy this a surprising amount. Being a non-pop fan. I really love Please Don't Leave Me. Maybe because the video was entertaining, and I like the lyrics. I'd never heard Mean before today, really enjoy that track also.

  5. I'm not that crazy. I totally sold them :)

  6. I've only sold a couple of cd's in my life.

    Warren G - Regulate...G Funk Era
    Live - Throwing Copper

    Not really sure why...guess I just got sick of them.

  7. You got rid of Warren G and didn't give/sell it to me?! WTF man. I thought we were homies.

  8. Haha...this was in the 8th grade. To show my nerd-ness, I'm pretty sure I traded it for some Magic cards.
