2020 marks 20 years of P!nk's career in music.

In 2000, Pink released her debut solo album, Can't Take Me Home. From now and throughout the year, a different topic will be posted (in this thread and separate threads) so celebrate each single, album, tour etc.

----------------------------------------------
There You Go

So for this week's discussion we have Pink's debut single, There You Go.

There you go was Pinkís debut single from her debut album Canít Take Me Home. It was co-written by Pink, Kevin ďSheíkspereĒ Briggs and Kandi Burruss.
The song got many positive reviews and was compare to tracks from Destinyís Child (Bills Bills Bills) and TLC (No Scrubs). It was described by MTV Asia as having an edgy cut that has all that it takes to top the charts. Rolling Stone commented: "Her debut has one awesome single in 'There You Go', whose wronged-woman sass is set to a stop-start groove so bling-bling it redeems a chorus that ends, 'Sometimes it be's like that.'"

Release History
20th February 2000

Peak Positions
Australia - 2
Germany - 65
Ireland - 19
New Zealand - 6
Sweden - 26

US Billboard Hot 100 - 7

Music Video
The music video was the first of many to be directed by Dave Meyers. It debuted in late November 1999.
In the music video , Pink's ex-boyfriend Mikey calls her asking for a ride, and she reluctantly agrees to give him one. Pink hops on a motorcycle and rides to the top of a parking structure overlooking her ex's apartment, where she calls him on her cell. She then accelerates her motorcycle, jumps off at the last second, and watches as it soars off the building and crashes into his apartment window before exploding into flames, burning the armchair and the PlayStation (which Mikey was playing on earlier in the video). Pink then jumps into a car driven by a new guy, giving her ex the middle finger as they drive off.

I remember hearing it the day it entered the chart and it was catchy but I wasnít too fussed by her. She caught my eye on TOTP that week though with the pink hair and everything. Itís very good for what it is and is a classic now!

I remember seeing it on TOTP too, I think that was the first time I'd ever seen her or been aware of who she was.

I've never liked this song at all, but I do definitely remember seeing her hair and thinking "that's cool" and enjoying the energy she had.

I only have the faintest memory of hearing this at the time, and that's because when the Most Girls video came out I recognized There You Go as the intro (that was my first time hearing two songs in the same music video, which amazed my 9-year-old self laugh.gif)

It was a rediscovery for me when she put it on her Greatest Hits, and from then on I've absolutely LOVED it.

Literally her hair made me a fan early on. I've since had it myself as an adult :')

I remember I saw the video on one of the music channels, we'd only just got MTV, VH1 etc so I was constantly watching the music channels laugh.gif I fell in love straight away. She was so different than everyone else out there, and at the time I felt different from every one too.

I was big into TLC around that time as well, so her r&b phase with ctmh helped me to get into her. Then when my music taste changed to more rock/pop, so did Pink's when she released Missundaztood heart.gif

You Make Me Sick for me is the worst single sheís ever done.

But There You Go is a BOP and Most Girls is my favourite thing from her debut era.

I think Pink, 20 Years, 20 Singles, The Best Of would be a great name for a new Greatest Hits.
