Well let's just say that the title is completely at odds with the song itself, which proves to be anything but boring in its abrasive runaway glory. Serving as a bonus track on the British and Japanese deluxe editions, 'Boring' tears down those overly self-loving males that attempt to impress with material things. With a killer drum refrain, some particularly witty one liners and and a frankly killer guitar riff, is it any surprise that the producers behind the track are the almighty Max Martin and Shellback?
I've always been relatively surprised that it was shunted to bonus status, to the point where it's not even on streaming services anymore, because it really is as big as any single she released from the Funhouse era. A little on the nose, yes, but considering the punch-to-the-nose 'So What' took her to number one, I think people were definitely fine with P!nk being this openly abrasive. The chorus is as thick as treacle and so easily digestible, definitely one of her finest bonus tracks, and then there's the hilarious little additions like the snoring, the "Insert rap... here!" middle-8. What a song.
@tylerc904: (10) Ironic or not, it fucking SLAPS.
@Music Is Life: (9.5) This song is so fucking funny. Literally one of my favorite bonus tracks by her because the lyrics are so cheeky and fun. I mean that middle-8 alone! “Insert rap here” *counts* Hilarious! Dead every time. And the production rocks in the best way possible.
@P'NutButter: (9) Such a brilliant pop song, just silly, hilarious and fun.
@Maki: (9) Such a misleading song title - this song is not boring the slightest! Actually, it’s one of her most fun and comical songs; the lyrics, snoring and ‘insert rap here’ are definitely memorable moments. It’s kind of a guilty pleasure of mine, I can even call it annoying, but not in a bad way. Super addictive chorus is always a good thing and I adore whet it slows down for that fantastic middle-8. Oh, and we get the alternate version of chorus near the end - thanks!
@Laurence: (9) This is great, why just a bonus track? If this was the final track on every edition it would way better. Something to stand out in the bonus tracks, wew I stan. The chorus just stands out greatly and those drums starting it, weew.
@JMRGBY88: (9) I love this song. This being a bonus over some of the tracks that made it to the album was a choice. The riff at the beginning plays in my head quite often.
@savilizabeths: (8) “Okay, this is just really damn fun. It’s cheeky and makes me smile whenever I hear it. It doesn’t feel like too much. It’s just enough sickly sweet sassy-ness.”
@rick: (8) Again it’s another one I can’t see many liking but I still dig it.
@abael: (7) Feels like a bit of a throwback to earlier work, paradoxically, gutsy but a bit gutless.
@R27: (6.75) Well it's certainly not dull, but I'm glad it was only an obscure bonus track and not part of the standard Funhouse tracklist.
