Usually greatest hits packages come with one or two new tracks, and usually those new tracks are kind of toss-offs, included to induce people who already have all the greatest hits to plunk down for the new packaging.
Pink's "Raise Your Glass" is, pleasantly enough, an exception to this greatest hits rule! Produced by Max Martin, who recently helmed Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream" and "California Gurls," "Raise Your Glass" follows a similar blueprint to those hits: a catchy, solo guitar-led verse giving way to an overwhelming, cathartic chorus.
Lyrically, Pink's "Raise Your Glass" is an outsider's anthem, quoting the Joker from "The Dark Knight," by asking, "Why so serious," before shout-singing, "Raise your glass if you are wrong, in all the right ways. We will never be... anything but loud!"
You tell 'em, girl. Pink's best-of compilation, The Greatest Hits...So Far is out Nov. 12.
