Philly Groove of the Day/P!nk/”Most Girls”

“Cause Shorty got a job, Shorty car, and Shorty can pay on her own rent,” chants Philly’s own (okay, Doylestown) Alicia Moore–aka P!nk–on her worldwide smash single, “Most Girls.” The follow-up radio release to her frisky debut ditty, ,”There You Go,” the fiery tune became the neon hued diva’s first official Billboard top five single with an accompanying video that was just all wrapped up that classic TRL lovin.’ 

Written by the legendary Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds (!), “Most Girls” (along with her ’01 smash, “Get the Party Started”) would not just become the neon hued diva’s biggest hit until 2008’s “So What,” but clearly it was the reason Missy Elliot came calling for P!nk to join those other girls on a little collaboration called “Lady Marmalade” just a few months later. 

Much like the rest if the tracks on “Most Girls” accompanying album, Can’t Take Me Home, the love scorned pop jam was cooked up with a feisty R&B backbone, which as we all know it was a style the singer abandoned when she gave L.A. Reid the music middle finger on her follow up record, M!ssundaztood.

While we can’t imagine Ms. Moore being the no f$%ks given R&B slinging diva she was back then (or can we?), we’re certainly glad she’s channeled her feisty energy into a vivid collection of catchy pop rock tunes because they’ve truly made her the aerial icon she is today. And it all began right here with “Most Girls.”

Philly Groove of the Day/P!nk/”Get the Party Started”

Although she was born and raised in Doylestown, there’s no denying that Ms. Alicia Moore-aka P!nk–has got that Philly swagger down cold. Released as the lead single from her blockbuster sophomore album, M!ssundaztood, “Get the Party Started” was certainly a departure from her R&B laced debut set, Can”t Take Me Home, with the single and the album taking on a rock/pop influence that would pretty much catapult the local diva into the fierce flying acrobatic music bitch that she is today.

Penned by P!nk and former 4 Non Blondes songstress Linda Perry, P!nk’s party starting anthem took over headphones everywhere with an accompanying clip that was just all wrapped up in MTV’s Making the Video .(How can we forget?)  But besides being one of the best pop tunes of the early ’00s, there were quite a few tasty remixes that came along with “Party,” including the irresistible Noise Disco remix, as well as the Rocwilder rewerk that took Eurythmics ’80s smash “Sweet Dreams((Are Made of This)” to new heights on top of a pre-“Dirrrrty” beat that still perfectly bumps-and-grinds it out today. 

Lucky for you guys, they’re all here as we try to get this Monday party started, because if there’s any diva out there who can help us shake off those post-Halloween doldrums, it’s certainly Ms. P!nk.
