Tom: You will recall from previous posts that I’m a bit of a Pink fan.
Tim: I do.
Tom: I always try to put biases like that aside for new singles from artists I like – but I think this might be the best track she’s put out in a long time.
Tim: Hmm…possibly, though if you’re saying it with that much certainty I suggest you go back and listen to Perfect one last time in case you’ve forgotten it.
Tom: Or, at least, the best track that doesn’t fall into the “reducing teenage girls to tears” category.
Tim: Okay, yes.
Tom: No goddamn silly “improvised” talking parts like in So What or Raise Your Glass. It’s a proper fists-in-the-air anthem. Listen to that goddamn chorus.
Tim: Oh, please – yes, it’s a good chorus, but So What is totally a fists-in-the-air anthem, although it’s also angry enough to be a fists-in-the-face anthem.
Tom: Not entirely sure the swearing in the second part of the chorus works – good luck censoring that, radio – and it’s not got as much of the singalong quality that So What had, but to hell with it. She’s back on form, and if this is any bellwether, then the new album’s going to be brilliant.
Tim: Agree with your views on the song alone; less so in comparison to the rest of her output. It is properly good.
