Pink's Official Top 20 Biggest Selling Songs
29 October 2015
By Justin Myers

Hard to believe, but it's more than 15 years since Pink first burst into the Official Singles Chart with her punchy debut There You Go.

She may have changed her sound, not to mention her hair, since then, but she's been fairly consistent on the banger front.

Seven years ago this week, Pink was celebrating her final week at Number 1 with her third chart-topper So What. Yep, our Pink, or Alecia as she's known on a Sunday or in front of guests, knocked Kings Of Leon's Sex On Fire off its perch to claim the throne. She stayed there for three weeks before Girls Aloud's altogether different The Promise came a-knocking and a nudging.

To mark this most joyful of chart occasions, and the release of her retrospective Pink – The Albums… So Far!!!, we look back at Pink's big ones.

She's had 27 UK Top 40s, including 18 Top 10s and three Number 1s, but when it comes to shifting your actual copies, what's her top song?

The Top 3

It's perhaps fitting that the Number 1 song on Pink's countdown never actually made it to the top of the Official Singles Chart – although it had a good go.

Just Give Me A Reason, which featured fun lead singer Nate Ruess, spent 11 weeks inside the Top 10, two of which were at Number 2. It was held off, however, in the first week by a surprise return to the charts by TV presenters Ant & Dec. After performing their 1994 classic Let's Get Ready To Rhumble on their Saturday Night Takeaway show, the track shot to Number 1, finishing just 5,000 copies ahead of poor Pink and Nate.

It didn't make it to Number 1, but it has shifted almost 830,000 copies to make it Pink's top seller.

So What, Number 1 today in 2008, is Pink's best selling chart-topper. Over 607,000 of you have bought what turned out to be Pink's most recent Number 1.

Next up is another chart-topper, but this time she wasn't alone. Pink joined forces with Mya, Christina Aguilera and Missy Elliott for the Moulin Rouge soundtrack.

Lady Marmalade has been a hit three times in the UK, and has reached the top spot twice! First a Number 17 hit for LaBelle in 1975, the track was covered by UK girlgroup All Saints, who whacked it into a double-A side (ask your mum) with a cover of Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Under The Bridge and took it to Number 1 in 1998!

Pink's version has sold 574,000 copies.

Other notable entries

Raise Your Glass, which led Pink's 2010 greatest hits collection, is her biggest selling non-Top 10. It's sold 425,000 copies despite reaching only Number 13 – thanks in part, no doubt, to the song featuring on the second series of Glee in 2011.

Pink's first solo Number 1 from 2002, Just Like A Pill, lands at number 8 with sales of over 360,000, while her most recent single True Love, which featured Lily Allen, is already her 15th top seller.

Pink's first ever single There You Go lands a place behind it at Number 16.

And, interestingly, two Top 10s don't make the Top 20 at all – Trouble (7 in 2003) and Feel Good Time (3 in 2003) both miss out.

Pink's Official Top 20:

TITLE PEAK YEAR
1 JUST GIVE ME A REASON (FEAT. NATE RUESS) 2 2013 (830,000)
2 SO WHAT 1 2008 (607,000)
3 LADY MARMALADE (WITH CHRISTINA AGUILERA, LIL KIM, MISSY ELLIOTT & MYA) 1 2001 (574,000)
4 RAISE YOUR GLASS 13 2010 (425,000)
5 TRY 8 2012
6 GET THE PARTY STARTED 2 2002
7 F**KIN' PERFECT 10 2010
8 JUST LIKE A PILL 1 2002 (360,000)
9 BLOW ME (ONE LAST KISS) 3 2012
10 WHO KNEW 5 2006
11 PLEASE DON'T LEAVE ME 12 2009
12 SOBER 9 2009
13 U & UR HAND 10 2006
14 DON'T LET ME GET ME 6 2002
15 TRUE LOVE (FEAT. LILY ALLEN) 16 2013
16 THERE YOU GO 6 2000
17 FAMILY PORTRAIT 11 2002
18 STUPID GIRLS 4 2006
19 MOST GIRLS 5 2000
20 LEAVE ME ALONE (I'M LONELY) 34 2007

I know there's a chart thread pinned but I thought this deserved a thread of its own.

As per, the list excludes streams.

Pleased to see Try up so high, such a gorgeous track, love that it still gets hammered by Heart. Shame about the low sales period in the noughties because stuff like Who Knew and Don't Let Me Get Me would be way higher on my list.

It always amazes me that even though it missed the top 10, RYG is one of her best sellers and has sold so much. Goes to show chart positions aren't always the indication of a hit.

Now whose gonna pm this to Michael?

Pink's Official Top 20 biggest songs
24 April 2017 | By Justin Myers

We count down Pink all-time biggest selling and most streamed hits.

It's more than 17 years since Pink scored her first UK hit with punchy debut There You Go.

She's changed her sound ad her look numerous times, but she's been fairly consistent when it's come to success.

She's had 28 UK Top 40s, including 18 Top 10s and three Number 1s, but when it comes to shifting your actual copies, what's her top song?

Before we go hard with the Top 20, here are some highlights:

Lady Marmalade
Her first chart-topper, Pink joined forces with Mya, Christina Aguilera and Lil Kim for the Moulin Rouge soundtrack.

This cover has been a hit a couple of times before, and in a way this was Pink's farewell to the slick R&B sound of her debut album Can't Take Me Home – she was soon to reinvent herself on next single Get The Party Started with a more bolshy, rocky sound. Pink's version of Lady Marmalade has sold 582,000 copies and racked up 9.3 million streams since we began counting in 2014, to finish as her third biggest song overall.

Just Like A Pill
Pink's first chart-topper all by herself, Just Like A Pill was the perfect tune for anyone who'd ever felt like telling someone to sod off. It knocked Atomic Kitten off Number 1 in September 2002 to spend a week at the top. It's sold 377,000 copies and achieved 5.5 million plays in the last couple of years – but, perhaps surprisingly, it doesn't make Pink's ultimate Top 5!

So What
So What, Number 1 in 2008, is Pink's best selling chart-topper. Over 617,000 of you have bought what turned out to be Pink's most recent Number 1 – but we're sure another is on its way. Those sales and 7.1 million streams help So What to be Pink's all-time runner-up biggest song.

Raise Your Glass
Raise Your Glass, which led Pink's 2010 greatest hits collection, is her biggest selling non-Top 10. It's sold 438,000 copies despite reaching only Number 13 – thanks in part, no doubt, to the song featuring on the second series of Glee in 2011. 7.7 million streams lift it to be her fourth biggest tune.

Just Give Me A Reason
It's perhaps fitting that the top song on Pink's countdown never actually made it to the top of the Official Singles Chart – although it had a good go.

Just Give Me A Reason, which featured fun lead singer Nate Ruess, spent 11 weeks inside the Top 10, two of which at Number 2. It was held off, however, in the first week by a surprise return to the charts by TV presenters Ant & Dec. After performing their 1994 classic Let's Get Ready To Rhumble on their Saturday Night Takeaway show, the track shot to Number 1, finishing just 5,000 copies ahead of poor Pink and Nate.

It didn't make it to Number 1, but it has shifted over 847,000 copies and racked up almost 18 million listens to make it Pink's biggest song.

Just Like Fire
Thanks to being her only Top 40 hit so far to be released since streaming began to contribute to the chart, Pink's most streamed tune is not one of her classics, but Just Like Fire, from Alice In Wonderland. The song reached 19 in June 2016, with 20.3 million plays and 157,000 sales.

Pink's Official Top 20:

SONG PEAK YEAR
1 JUST GIVE ME A REASON (FEAT NATE RUESS) 2 2013 1,027,000 (847,000)
