Where did it all go?
Nostalgia is a quiet killer, sometimes whisking you away to the back parts of your brain when you should be focusing on the here and now. It's easy to idolize a childhood that seems simple in comparison to the shitload of responsibility you've picked up since growing up, and then of course there's the sheer pain of getting older and realizing the relationships you've formed and relied on have started to decompose.
I've seen a little bit of criticism to this track because, as we now know, P!nk had a very difficult childhood and as such her nostalgia is rendered void. But that shouldn't be the case at all, as we can all encounter trauma in our childhood and still find ourselves wondering back to those little moments where we sat in a world full of imagination and naivety. Sometimes it's because we want to go back and take stock of the things we took for granted, or it's because we'd do anything to go back and change the things we've learned through hindsight.
Working with Julia Michaels was a little stroke of genius, as there's barely a better songwriter out there right now for tackling deep-seated personal issues without all the fluff - just cutting right to the heart. Save for Sasha Sloan, who we know she worked with soon after anyway!
@JMRGBY88: (10) God, this kills me even to this day. I just get this aching in my chest for the past whenever I listen to this.
@P'NutButter: (10) One of her best of the last few years. Julia Michaels did good here.
@Maki: (9.65) The closest she's come recently to matching the emotional and melancholic tracks from "M!ssundaztood". The verses are absolutely gorgeous, as well as the progressing production. The music arrangement is so beautiful, the string instruments, acoustic guitar, drums and all. But it still isn't perfect, it lacks something to make it even more emotionaly powerful.
@savilizabeths: (9) “This and ‘My Attic’ definitely have their similarities, with this being the superior of the two. The vocals are so delicate and the strings mix so well with the plucked acoustic guitar. I’m sure everybody can relate to this, I know I do. The feeling really kicks up in the bridge and it creates such beautiful and nostalgic imagery. What a moment!”
@Music Is Life: (9) This was not what I had expected when I saw the title for this back when we were leading up to the album release, but I’m really glad she diverted my expectations. The production on this is gorgeous and the lyrics are heartbreaking. Love it.
@rick: (7.5) It’s ok and I’m sure it’s gonna get a lot of love but I think she has better ‘camp fire ballads’
@abael: (7) A nice but uninteresting song. Pink needs to pick up the tempo on this album.
@R27: (6.5) P!nk never struck me as the kid who play Barbies, but maybe this is lesson for me about assuming things.
Me contemplating suicide after realising I just deleted all my images in order to put them in convenient folders.
Glad that the artworks are safe! I appreciate them so much.It’s just me! I have them all don’t worry, it just removed the links so I had to go through every elimination post and relink them to a new set of uploads.
Goodbye "God Is a DJ"!Hint for tomorrow: hitting the dance floor.
