Song of the Day, November 20: Walk Away by P!nk

PinkWalkBy her third album, P!nk was a chart force to be reckoned with. Although Try This was — relatively speaking — a commercial disappointment, it was a far more creative and mature work than its predecessors. P!nk collaborated on the disc with Rancid singer and guitarist Tim Armstrong, and their energy works well together.

Their finest moment is Walk Away, a song of disappointment, confusion, and determination. More restrained than most of the singer’s famous kiss-off songs, it has a quiet energy that builds as she details the disintegration of a relationship. She moderates her vocals nicely, allowing the lyrics to speak as loudly as the delivery. It’s a fine performance that hints at the angry grace she would refine over her next few discs.

Enjoy this great song today.
