He got closer to me, it started getting deep
He had me in a zone when he started to show me things
I never saw before
Baby was smooth but I knew it was game
Hell-of-a cool but you men are the same
The way he licked his lips and touched my hips
I knew that he was slick
Here is another one that I somehow forgot to make a cover for, but cut me some slack considering I made well over 150 pieces of artwork in my spare time, so I just picked the pretty cool single artwork (Mine wouldn't be too dissimilar, I just liked having the same font for each era).
'You Make Me Sick' falling now leaves the debut album with just two tracks left, which I find ironic considering how much clamoring we see for her to return to these roots (Newsflash: a real P!nk fan knows R&B influences her work all the time). Released as the third and final single from her debut, it actually does not feature P!nk's writing credits at all, but it did manage to peak in the top ten over in the UK and the top 40 in the US, which I think is a really strong feat for a debut era? I think we forget she was actually kind of successful, just a bit anonymous, even when she first landed.
Despite being a bit obvious production-wise, I do think that P!nk manages to sell it pretty well and the operatic backing is a really fantastic touch that really elevates it. It still maintains that touch of humour we've come to expect of her, and the music video is an absolute serve of brilliant iconography. A pop star from the very beginning.
@Verandi: (10) The best of the album. Catchy as fuck.
@Music Is Life: (10) This is honestly my favorite of the three singles from this album. Don’t ask me why, it just is. I mean, t’s perfect. The production just glides along so smoothly and bops so much, and the melody throughout is so catchy and fun, and I feel like it’s very her, the whole song is, the lyrics scream P!nk. And I love the chorus. Also the intro, is great and a little hilarious, and the outro is sublime.
@Maki: (8.9) I don’t know how to rate this song, since I don’t go back to it so often, but when I do, I always end up loving it. It has a very warm feeling to it, especially in the chorus, which is really nice. Just behind “There You Go”, which means it’s my least favorite single from this album, but doesn’t mean this isn’t another great track. The music video definitely has ‘WTF’ value to it, though.
@rick: (8) Underrated gem of her early years. I’m sad she doesn’t perform it much these days. Also giving Santa a lap dance in the video was legendary.
@R27: (8) You got me lit like a candle stick is an amazing line and intend to quote throughout the summer at parties.
@savilizabeths: (8) “I adore the chorus on this one. It’s another really nostalgic feeling song. I must have heard it when I was a kid and just not known. I really love listening to this, I’m definitely bopping.”
@abael (7) Did Pink want to be in a group? Production makes this into a girl group song.
She was in a group sis, they basically poached her into solo life.
Next up: Respite for @Verandi after losing 5 tens in a row.
