Me noticing a spelling error on the artwork
Y'all really managed to eliminate three pretty great songs in a row when there's still plenty of crap left. A mess.
Me upon entering this thread:
Now I'm just like:
Two 10's in a row and what songs these two are!
So... "Stop Falling" was that classic @Lost Boy? Well, thanks for calling it that, but what happened to most of the voters and the lack of higher scores? (taste @savilizabeths and @P'NutButter, and even @abael is with me this time) @Verandi, as usual, showing lack of appreciation for P!nk ballads.
I can't believe that "Love Is Such a Crazy Thing" and "Leaving for the Last Time" are still in, it's a very positive surprise (watch them go next, so I can fume).
"Stop Falling" is in my top 10 (even top 5) P!nk song ever, and "Gone to California" is just a few places behind. I consider both of them among her career highlights.
@Untouchable Ace is cancelled... out of all the songs, THAT is what you decide to give your 0 to???
"Gone to California" is the brilliance of "M!ssundaztood", and a song that I adored upon first listen, yet you put in the bottom two of its songs, while "Respect", "Catch-22" and the title track are still in - is this a joke?
Wait at ATRL having much more taste by placing "Gone to California" in the non-singles rate at #14 (with almost 7,75 as its average). Such an honest and emotional song, and a fantastic execution.
Bravo @Sprockrooster for mentioning the trip hop vibe of the song - it really is a unique track that has stunningly beautiful production, with some R&B influences, too.
And nobody else scored these two wonders a 10? I'm surprised. Honestly, I thought at least @Lost Boy would give a 10 to "Gone To California" and @P'NutButter a 10 to "Stop Falling".
To say that both deserved better is a major understatement.
Two magnificent ballads leaving, yet some of the cheap, uptempo 'bops' still being in is massive injustice.
WAIT! THERE'S MORE?! I'm already like that!
If "Funhouse" is losing it's first track, then I'm afraid (and literally mad) that...
..."Why Did I Ever Like You" could be leaving next.
Tomorrow a classic will fall was my clue, ddd.
Also I would give 'Gone to California' at least a 9 if I rated it now.
Gone To California out before Lonely Girl? This rate is so weird so far...
I cannot lie, I'm glad to see my two lowest scores go back to back. I'll lose plenty of high scores anyway.
'Stop Falling' is one of her best ballads. Shame.
No you're still here. xx
Oh... sorry, I didn't get it.
I assume that will be the case with many songs in this rate (although I sincerely hope that you gave a 10 to my 11), there are some songs that I cpuld rate higher now, too.
Which makes me wonder, when are you losing your first 10?
I... actually did. One of her best for me.
Later today. I'm slightly furious.
Yes, you're amazing!!! Taste overload!
Oh, well, you managed to 'survive' about 30 eliminations without losing one.
Speaking of high scores, let's play a game: how many 10's will I lose before we reach top 100?
The way things are going so far, I assume that nearly half of them will be axed, which is about 15...
I'm quite surprised Gone To California managed to stay until now, it should've been binned much earlier.
"Gone to California" is gone way too soon. I probably could have scored it a little higher admittedly, but regardless there are many worse songs that should have taken its place. I can't quite remember how "Stop Falling" goes (ddd), but I gave it a 7 so there are also many songs that could have left before it too..
Actually, I don't mind that some of you tanked "Stop Falling" (at least to some extent), when P!nk herself listed it among the 5 best songs she's ever written in an interview in 2017:
And this live performance can be called a pinnacle of the song's amazingness:
I would kill to have this live performance in full:
Sounds exactly like on the recording.
I still can't believe the voters did it so wrong.
Glad that you agree with me.
Have a reminder how the song goes by listening to the fantastic live version(s) above.
115. Why Did I Ever Like You?
Average score: 6.14
Highest score: 10 (@Maki)
Lowest score: 2x2 (@Laurence, @Sideout)
My score: 6
Funhouse may have survived a whopping 28 eliminations but its time has come, specifically for the abrasive bonus track 'Why Did I Ever Like You?'. Trademark tongue-in-cheek Moore is at her peak here, deriding an entire relationship as it comes to an end - something I'm sure we can all relate to. Isn't it funny how the rose tinted glasses break and we question every tiny little thing that we once loved? This may have been relegated to bonus status but it fits in very well with the material at hand, though maybe it doesn't do much of anything new to give it special status. Those raspy vocals are a dream to me, I love them.
Poor Maki loses their third ten in a row, so let's save a little prayer for them right now.
@rick: (7.5) The level of Petty we can all aspire to
@abael: (8) Pink pushes herself here to make something more than the standard fare here, and it pays off.
@Maki: (10) What a freaking amazing song! Greg Wells and P!nk weren’t playing with this one. When I did the song sorter, this song placed in the top 10 - that’s how much I adore it. Can’t believe it ended up only as a bonus track. Immensely good production, which has an almost live feel to it, is outstandingly good. The stomping and explosive beat, combined with the melody and her killer vocal performance makes me speechless. And those harmonies - wow! Everything is absolutely on point. This song is much more than a 5.8 earthquake! I’m already mourning its early exit…
@R27: (5) I'm really glad this didn't make the standard edition. It's a lot more immature and lacking in nuance when compared to the majority of the tracks on the proper album.
@savilizabeths: (8) “This always makes me smile.”
@Laurence: (2) I guess I did not have to hear this...
Average score: 6.17
Highest score: 10 (@Reboot)
Lowest score: 2x2 (@Sideout, @Duppe)
My score: 9
P!nk airlines flight found careening off course and into the ocean. Initially a deluxe track on the international editions of the album, 'Catch-22' eventually found itself on the standard track-listing as a bonus on the 2nd press. This... might be one of my favourites on the entire album? It's a much needed moment of relief that is just packed with hooks, and I understand you're either going to love the air-steward talk-bits or not, but to me it adds to this humorous world-building.
It's almost farcical and that's why it's so brilliant? Kind of her very own 'I'm Too Sexy' in the minimal but addictive production, and the frankly weird lyricism. Who else could pull off You're searching for your cheese 'cause you feel like mighty mouse? Nobody. JMRGBY rightly calls it the sister of 'Get The Party Started' and I feel I might actually like this even more?
Also big big big shoutout to that bassline. Ugh I'm listening to this now and it's monumental.
@JMRGBY88: (8) The little sister of Get The Party Started.
@Maki: (5.75) One of her earliest comical songs (hilarious at some points), but also one of the weakest from this era. I totally agree it being a bonus track, mostly due to the unfinished sound and clumsy production. It gets a bit too repetitive and annoying after a while, too. I love the mini oriental moment after the second chorus, which made me bump the score slightly. Absolutely not one of her finest moments, but it’s obvious that it was supposed to be just a fun track. Although, I would love to be a part of P!nk Airlines.
@R27: (7.75) The flight attendant voiceover is a fun touch. This is a fun little track with some creative production choices.
@savilizabeths: (7) “The ‘P!nk Airlines’ thing is really cute.”
@The Hot Rock: (7) Would've probably swapped this out for one of the lesser regular tracklist tracks.
@Verandi: (9) A fun song that could have made the main tracklist with Respect.
@Reboot: (10) The spoken bits made me laugh. I’m a sucker for songs like this.
@rick: (7) Fun little bonus track and in my mind the music video would be the bigger, more apathetic sister to Britney’s Toxic
@abael: (3) You couldn't have caught me in a happier state before I began this album. Yet as I finish this album I can't think of an album I have so thoroughly disliked as this one. Dyed Hair and purposeful misspelling must have been scalding hot in 2001, but sadly, in 2019 this is hot garbage almost completely.
@Music Is Life: (8.5) This is a fun, quirky little bop. I really like the production, it kinda reminds me of Feel Good Time, and the lyrics are funny in a good way, so overall this is a pretty good song, and I wish it made the official track-list. Glad it’s not censored like the rest of the album, maybe that’s why it didn’t make it.
@tylerc904: (5) Certainly bonus track material.
When it's right, it's right!
Catch-22 not even making it to the top 100... There are no words. I guess some of y'all must hate fun.
Goodbye Catch 22, the sole saving grace of the album's side B.
Nothing from Funhouse deserved to go before goDDAMN SLUT LIKE YOU!
And a few other songs I won't mention.
I... I'm not even bothered by Gone To California leaving though I rated it very well, BUT, Stop Falling is an absolutely stunning song and deserved to at least crack the top 100.
