It just came up on my Spotify playlist and I was thinking of skipping but decided not to... OMG. The instrumental in it doesn't seem dated at all (which seems weird for a song from 2001 laugh.gif). Pink's vocal in it is amazing too. No wonder it was the single that properly made her breakthrough.

What are your thoughts on it - is it among her best?

It's not her best but I still love it. The video is pretty dated now which I never thought would happen.

Yeah I agree - I went off it quite quickly when it was released but then again I was 8. I just thought before I posted this thread that the instrumental struck me as quite "experimental" for a pop song from that time - in a good way. I think it gets lost in her discography these days but now I see the reasons why it made Pink breakthrough.

It's a nice fun jam and I do enjoy it if it comes on a playlist or at a party, but I think the fact she's eclipsed it so many times since and it lacks substance. It's a nice transitional stepping stone between that first album and what she went on to become.

Still love it and this was where her career really began, after first hearing this I instantly loved it and knew it would be huge, and loved the song so much that I bought her 2nd album on import and thought that it was fantastic, and still ranks as one of her best.

I would still rank this song in my personal top 10 fave Pink singles, and so glad she just got better and better throughout the years and that this wasn't a fluke, which it could have been. Even though I wasn't really a fan of her R&B days with 'There You Go' & 'Most Girls' although they were both very decent, I always knew that Pink had potential and changing her sound was a definite smart move career-wise, because who knew where she would be now if she stuck with that sound, which now sounds really dated, I predict that she would have probably faded with her 2nd or 3rd album and still be C-List, if she'd stuck with the R&B sound, because the 'LM' feature did boost her status, so who knows.

But 'Get The Party Started' is still a fantastic song, and yes the overplay pretty much killed it, but it will always be a very important stepping stone in her career, because if it wasn't for that success then we wouldn't have had greatness such as any of the follow up singles from the album or 'Who Knew', 'Trouble', 'So What', 'Raise Your Glass', 'U + Ur Hand', 'Please Don't Leave Me', 'Just Give Me A Reason' or even the wonderful 'Try'.

One of my least favourite Pink songs! I thought it was alright when it was released but much preferred the rest of the Missundaztood album. I quite liked the music video at the time though.

I hated it live too so I was glad to see it dropped from the set list on ttal tour

Nice fun song. Personally I prefer the Shirley Bassey/Rhydian version though

I have grown to really dislike this. It doesn't really fit on Missundaztood either.

It grew on me again this last year after I dismissed it for a long time as inferior to Just Like a Pill and Don't Let Me Get Me. You're right, Pink does have a great vocal on it. It sounds fun, probably a bit of its time compared to some of her other more acoustic stuff, but that's fine by me, I like 90s/early 00s nostalgia biggrin.gif
