Pink – Walk Me Home

“Twenty years? Twenty years. I don’t think I’m OK with that.”

Tim: Twenty years to the day from the release of her debut, it’s a new Pink track! Spoiler alert: it’s bloody good.

Tom: Twenty years? Twenty years. I don’t think I’m OK with that.

Tom: And you’re right: this is great.

Tim: Isn’t it just? It’s very rare that my single criticism of a song is that it’s too short, but it just seems to be over before it’s started. I want more of that incredible chorus, so much more.

Tom: I was sure I’d heard parts of this before, and I was racking my brains for which particular anthem it was cribbing from — but no, I’ve got nothing. It’s absolutely in her familiar style, but it’s all new.

Tim: I was going to say “it’s my favourite Pink song since…”, but then I realised she really does have form for just great tracks, and that her last album’s lead track, What About Us, was also great. Having said that, I do think this is the first one that’s clicked with me immediately in a while, possibly since Raise Your Glass, which as a comparison isn’t so surprising because they’re similar styles. However you look at it, though, this is flipping brilliant. Entirely, entirely great.

1 thought on “Pink – Walk Me Home”

  1. Nineteen years, not twenty; There You Go came out in 2000. (It’s okay, I’m not adjusting well to the coming “2000 was TWENTY YEARS AGO!?” panic we’re due for next year either.) Went and watched the video for it just now and oh my word, it’s like a visual time capsule of the year 2000 too.

    As for this song: I agree it’s good. So What remains my favorite P!nk song but I certainly will be happy to hear this one come on the radio.
