Pink know as a very popular and famous singer. She was born in Pennsylvania (USA) in September 1979. Her real name is Alicia Moore but she prefer people to call her by her nick name, Pink. She is 5`3 with blue eyes, flamingo pink hair and an extreme personality. At only the age of 19 she was a reasonable young woman with the experience of many lifetimes. She hit a Top-10 in the early 2000 with the popular song, ” There you go “. Her music is a mixed of pop and R&B. Pink grew up in a small town just outside Philadelphia, making her singer debut at the age of 13 with a local rap crew. Pink moved away from her urban roots on the more successful M!ssundaztood, a harder edged album which features several tracks written and produced by her long time idol. She also hit a Top-5 singles in the US with the songs ” Get this party started ” and ” Just like a pill “. At the end of 2002, Pink was established as the new face of US Pop singers!.
” I’m a very extreme person. I went through a lot of phases growing up, and for everyone, I was extreme “.
The song, ( Don’t let me get me ) talks about Pink’s negative part oh her life. Pink shows that she is really pessimist about her life. She sees everything black and is never nice to anyone not even to her self. She thinks no one likes her, that’s why she is always discriminating her “miserable” life.
Also she is very jealous. She thinks there is always someone better than her and that’s why in this song she compares her with the “lovely” Britney Spears, that everyone is supposed to fancy!
In the first verse they have used a quick pace rhyme in short sentences so is more energetic. Also a rhyme couplets, ( Teachers dated me, my parents hated me), is more catchy and memorable. There is also an internal rhyme, ( hated, dated ). The chorus ” Don’t let me get me ” to ” I wanna be somebody else ” is several times repeated so it makes the main message sound more powerful. The texture gets thicker and thicker by adding more complicated drums rhythms. The beat doesn’t change, four beats in a bar are constant. The instruments they used are: keyboard, electric guitar and drums. The words are very clear.
I think that the artist have been influenced by the song because it represent people from her age and its about her self personal experience. Its also a experience of ” Youth Culture “. She criticisms her self and express all the worst things of her life.
” I decided at 15 that I didn’t want to be one of those artists that gets up and sings love songs they don’t mean ”
This in a way relates to the topic ” Me ” because she compose the song thinking of her self and if you observe you could see that the song talks about things that happen to her during her life.
From my point of view I think it has two important life messages, in a way, one positive and one negative. The positive message is that no matter what happens to you or what you do, you would always have a chance to change. The negative message could be that she always looks at her negative part of life and sees everything black.
I think this is a very interesting and realistic song. I’ve really enjoyed because the composer writes what she thinks and not what people would like her to think. Also it uses lots of goods song techniques which make the song more interesting and “catchy” to the audience. Another fact that makes the song fascinating is that is written as an actual personal experience and also the words are very clear to understand.
This ideas fit perfect with the drama work we did in class. In drama we used freeze images with choral speaking to represent some lines of the song, we acted some thoughts that the composer might had it when she was writing the song. I would take one of the messages of the song and try to represent them with an art picture or maybe even better with my own music performance!.
