A new feature to the Pink forum, explained more in the Poll thread

Raise Your Glass


Raise Your Glass was released as the lead single of Pink’s first compilation album, Greatest Hits… So Far! The song celebrates the first decade since Pink’s debut in 2000 and was dedicated to her fans.
Released in October 2010 by LaFace Records, JIVE Records and RCA Records, it gained both critical and commercial success. Described as a party anthem the song reached the top 10 in several countries including United States where it became her third number one single.

Raise Your Glass was written by Pink, Max Martin and Shellback. The song has a strong pop style, in much similar fashion to her previous work with producer Max Martin.

Pink describes the song as a “celebration for people who feel left out from the popular crowd”. “I don’t know if it’s going to be huge, but its new. I did three new songs. It was good timing. I had been on the road for two years and I hadn’t written anything and I wanted to write a song about the underdogs. Instead of going and becoming a cover girl, I kind of just hit the road and pounded the pavement… and became a touring artist. You don’t have to be popular when you’re a touring artist, you just have to be good, and this is a thank you for the fans.”

In the United States, Raise Your Glass recharged Pink's chart performance, becoming her tenth Top 10 hit and her third number one hit. It put Pink third on the list of female artists with most Top 10 hits in the 2000s, behind Rihanna, who has collected 18 Top 10 hits since 2005 and Beyoncé, with 14. It took the song eight weeks to hit the Hot 100's apex, where it stayed for a single week. Raise Your Glass has also become Pink's fifth number one on Adult Pop Songs, giving her the most number ones on the chart of a female artist, and putting her in a tie with the band Nickelback for the most number ones on the chart out of all artists; in 2011, Katy Perry achieved her sixth no.1 in the chart, placing Pink and Nickelback at number two as artists with the most number ones. So What, Pink's only previous 3-million seller, reached that level in 26 weeks. As of August 2013, the single has sold 4,162,000 copies.
Raise Your Glass reached #13 in the United Kingdom. However, in Australia, Raise Your Glass climbed to the top of the ARIA singles chart in 24 hours, it also debuted atop the Polish charts and German airplay charts, just like Pink's six previous singles. Therefore, Pink breaks the record she had set herself, as the artist with most consecutive number one singles on the chart. In New Zealand, the song peaked at number five on the RIANZ on the singles chart and reached number one on the radio airplay chart.

The music video for the song began filming in October 2010 and is Pink's twelfth collaboration with Dave Meyers. It is based around one of Pink's real-life experiences, and features a celebration of gay marriage, expressing her views that people should not feel any differently towards gay marriage than straight marriage.
Pink commented on the video in an interview for MTV: "I threw my best friend's wedding in my backyard — she is lesbian and she married her wife, and it was absolutely beautiful. At the end of it, her mom said, 'Why can't this be legal?' and started crying. It was just the most heartbreaking thing I've ever seen, so that's why I'm doing it in my video.”

The music video has scenes that include a skateboarding setting, which is reminiscent of Pink's debut music video for There You Go, and a scene in a high school prom where Pink sniffs under her arm, the same thing she did in the music video for Get the Party Started. The final scenes show a girl crying during her graduation, a reference to Pink's success in delivering her message after years since her debut.
In several sequences Pink is shown depicting the iconography of Rosie the Riveter on the We Can Do It! poster.
The video was released on Pink's official website in early November 2010.
