Pink's Official Top 20 biggest songs
We count down Pink all-time biggest selling and most streamed hits.
By Justin Myers

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.

I asked the OCC about their blunder with Lady Marmalade's sales. Last week when they announced Xtina's top 20, it said "On her rundown, it clocks in as her fourth biggest song overall, combining sales of 676,000 and 9.3 million."

That top 20 *.*

She's had such an amazing career, often overlooked, but amazing discography.

Any reason this has been published? Is there new material on the way.

Raise Your Glass outselling all those Top 10s!

Great to get this list, she's one of my all time favourite singers, and there's so many classics in that list. Good to see my fave Top 10 too (F**ing Perfect) wub.gif

Just seems to be in celebration of 17 years of 'There You Go'.

Only one I'm super surprised by is Sober, that's pretty high for a track that I've hardly ever seen mentioned as a standout from her discography or anyone's favourite song.

Kinda unsurprised that the more recent songs are pretty disproportionately up there at the top, given streaming and digital sales. Try in particular is a really good track that still sounds as fresh as when it came out.

Sober is probably my favourite Pink song ever, it used to be 'U & Ur Hand' but these past few years I've really come to love Sober. Beautiful record.

Sober, U & Ur Hand, Try, Perfect & Raise Your Glass are all 10/10 for me.

The stats obviously prove that what Adele says is true.

"Sober" is also one of my favourite Pink songs, "Try" would probably be the best one with "Just Give Me A Reason" and "Family Portrait" not far behind.
