On This Day in Pink History… 8th September 2003, Trouble was released

On This Day in Pink History… 8th September 2003, Trouble was released

Trouble was released as a single from Pink’s third studio album, Try This. It was written by Pink and Tim Armstrong and was moderately successful, its highest peak on the Canadian Singles Chart at #2. The single peaked at #68 on the Billboard Hot 100 and at #7 on the UK Singles Chart.

Tim Armstrong had originally written the song for his own band Rancid’s 2003 album, Indestructible however the song failed to make the final cut so when asked to work with Pink, he brought the song to her attention and it was partially re-written with her.

The music video was directed by Sophie Muller and had a western theme.

Tracklist:

UK CD single

  1. Trouble – 3:12
  2. Delirium – 3:40
  3. Free – 6:38

P!nk has been added to our star-studded line up for the first time. Her figure has a show-stopping position in our Music Zone, suspended from the ceiling seated on a giant glitterball. BUT fans will need to visit fast to blow her One Last Kiss, because she leaves [LONDON] for Madame Tussauds Sydney on 1st November 2014.

I know I don’t have a lot of time. If I may tell you a quick story. Recently, I was driving my daughter to school and she said to me, out of the blue, “Mama?” “Yes, baby?” She said, “I am the ugliest girl I know.” And I said, “Huh?” And she was like, “Yeah, I look like a boy with long hair.” And my brain went to, Oh my god, you are 6! Why? Where is this coming from? Who said this? Can I kick a 6-year-old’s ass? What? But I didn’t say anything. Instead, I went home and I made a power point presentation for her. And, in that presentation, were androgynous rock stars and artists that live their truth, are probably made fun of every day of their lives, and carry on, and wave their flag, and inspire the rest of us. These are artists like Michael Jackson, David bowie, Freddie Mercury, Annie Lennox, Prince, Janis Joplin, and George Michael, Elton John — so many artists.

It was, her eyes glazed over. But then I said, “You know, I really want to know why you feel this way about yourself.” She said, “I look like a boy.” I said, “What do you think I look like?” She said, “Well you are beautiful.” I was like, “Well, thanks.” But, I said, “When people make fun of me, it’s, that’s what they use. They say that I look like a boy, or I am too masculine, too many opinions, my body is too strong.” And I said to her, “Do you see me growing my hair?” She said, “No mama.” I said, “Do you see me changing my body?” “No, mama.” “Do you see me changing the way I present myself to the world?” “No, ma.” “Do you see me selling out arenas all over the world?” “Yes, mama.” “That’s right. So, baby, girl, we don’t change, we take the gravel and the shell and we make a pearl. We help other people to change so that they can see more kinds of beauty.”

And to all of the artists here, I am so inspired by all of you. Thank you for being your true selves. And for lighting the way for us. I am so inspired by you guys. There is so much rad shit happening now in music, and keep doing it. Keep shining. For the rest of us to see. And you, my darling girl, are beautiful. And I love you. Thank you, MTV. This is a really special night. Thank you, Ellen [DeGeneres], I couldn’t love you more. Thank you, guys. Good night.

On This Day in Pink History… 28th August 2006, U+Ur Hand was released

On This Day in Pink History… 28th August 2006, U+Ur Hand was released

Pink reportedly wanted “U + Ur Hand” to be the second single from I’m Not Dead, but “Who Knew” was released as the second and “U + Ur Hand” was instead released as the third. The single had success in Europe, reaching number ten in the UK, number four in Germany and number 11 in France; it peaked inside the top ten on the European Hot 100 Singles chart.

Pink wrote the song with Max Martin, Luke Gottwald, and Rami to mock the men who would flirt with her in clubs. The title refers to the line “looks like it’s just me and my hand tonight,” which was a phrase she’d heard guys using.
