Pink - Sober

15 November Critic Jonni 0 Comments

Pink, real name Alecia Moore, is one of those singers that are always going to be in the music industry. She has released a lot of great songs, however I'm not too keen on her new ones, and I have to admit that I used to be a fan, but now I've kind of gone off her, and I'm not sure why.

Today I woke up still half-drunk from drinking the night before, but for some reason this song was playing over and over in my mind all morning even though I was far from sober. It was the second release from her most amazing album "Funhouse". Personally, I don't think she has ever released a better album. This song was written by Pink, Nate Hills (Danja), Kara DioGuardi and Marcella Araica. All of these song-writers have appeared on my blog already, and clearly this song was going to be a hit. Apparently Pink started writing this song when she hosted a house party, everyone else was drinking and she was sober, and she just wanted everyone to leave. And this music video reflects that perfectly.

The video didn't make much sense to me when I was younger and first saw it on the music channels. Only today I watched it and started laughing, realising that the music channels had cut certain scenes out, for obvious reason. It now makes perfect sense to me.

There's a lot to like about this video. I like that there are two Pinks; we are left to believe one is actually her (the one who's sober), and the other is her doppelgänger (the drunk one). I find it incredibly clever how they have managed to film this especially when she makes out with herself, and we are left to presume they'll have sex together.

I have no problems with this music video at all. It works well with the song and I love the idea behind it. The song is extremely catchy as well. The video speaks for itself, leaving me with extremely little to comment on. I also feel I have no choice on the rating to give as it deserves nothing less.
