Pink - Get The Party Started

April 22, 2012 Critic Jonni 0 Comments

I had a lot of choice this week for my Sunday revisit so I was quite surprised and stuck for choice. I decided on Pink purely because I haven't reviewed many music videos from her on this blog. I have only done "F**kin' Perfect", which is what I did this week. Pink's real name is Alecia Moore, and she has been going for a number of years. She is creating a new album as I currently type this, so I cannot wait to see what she has in store for us.

"Get This Party Started" was written by Linda Perry, who also appears at the bar in this music video. She has been mentioned on this blog once before hand, as she also wrote Christina Aguilera's "Beautiful". This song fits Pink down to a T, and it was the song that made me aware of who she was. And I don't think I was the only one. The song got to number 2 here in the UK, just missing out on the top spot. But it'll always be a top hit to me.

This music video is probably one of the best I've seen during that time of 2001, it kind of reminds me of Britney Spears' "...Baby One More Time", purely because it's so narrative and story based that they both tell a story similar to the lyrics.

There's a few things I like about this music video, but the main thing is the house right at the start, it's very bright and different, and I just love it, I want that house! The skateboarding is pretty clever, and I always laugh when she falls over. I like how they show tribute to the 9/11 attacks which happened just days earlier. I also like how she swaps outfits in the club. If spinning around changed your outfit, everyone would be doing that.

There are a few niggling bits, such as how she ditches her friend to go and dance. The fact that they steel the skateboards in exchange for a kiss, but at the end of the day it's still wrong. I would've preferred her to take them out from the back of the car. And the fact that it isn't the full song either, it's a clipped version.

There are a few famous faces, such as Linda Perry, she is one of the people at the bar, some people say she's the bar woman, whereas others say it's the girl Pink kind of rivals... I'm not too sure. Kevin Federline (who went on to marry and divorce Britney) and Georvohn Lambert who became a dancer for other artists. There are probably a few more, if you spot them tell me below and I'll add them.

Overall a top-notch music video that although has it's faults, are understandable, shame this never became a number one, but it's good no matter what. Pink has recently gone down the route of being happy with who you are. And I hope she keeps with that route for her next album, as it will definitely get people talking, and hopefully get a few chart toppers.
