I'm Not Dead [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Tracy E. Hopkins
After veering off track with 2003's uninspired Try This, Pink returns to top form with I'm Not Dead -- featuring the hilarious single "Stupid Girls," in which she roasts vapid, cookie-cutter starlets like Jessica Simpson and Paris Hilton and celebrates a woman's right to individuality. And that sense of fearless self-possession is exactly what makes Pink better than your average female pop star. In her absence, American Idol Kelly Clarkson effectively filled the vacancy for a soulful pop-rock chick, but the cute Texan doesn't have the offstage persona to back up her "Since You've Been Gone" sneer.

Barnes & Noble - Tracy E. Hopkins
After veering off track with 2003's uninspired Try This, Pink returns to top form with I'm Not Dead -- featuring the hilarious single "Stupid Girls," in which she roasts vapid, cookie-cutter starlets like Jessica Simpson and Paris Hilton and celebrates a woman's right to individuality. And that sense of fearless self-possession is exactly what makes Pink better than your average female pop star. In her absence, American Idol Kelly Clarkson effectively filled the vacancy for a soulful pop-rock chick, but the cute Texan doesn't have the offstage persona to back up her "Since You've Been Gone" sneer. Pink, who was at one time romantically linked to bad boy Tommy Lee and is currently married to motocross hunk Corey Hart, is a real-life rebel. Her provocative lyrics entertainingly and convincingly drive that point home throughout her best disc yet. Longtime collaborator Linda Perry may be curiously absent, but veteran writer-producers Billy Mann, Butch Walker, and Max Martin easily take the helm, providing the singer with 13 infectious pop-rock songs to sink her raspy chops into the hidden track is a duet with her father, James T. Moore. "Who Knew" is a delicious slice of edgy '80s pop that recalls Pat Benatar, while "Cuz I Can" is a Joan Jett-reminiscent rocker. Although Pink always knows how to get the party started, she also isn't afraid to be vulnerable. Assisted by the Indigo Girls, "Dear Mr. President" is an acoustic plea to Mr. Bush to pay attention to the poor, and on the soulful ballad "Nobody Knows Me," the cotton candy-coiffed singer still sounds Missundazstood. Her inner turmoil, however, merely makes Pink all the more interesting, and on I'm Not Dead this problem child has never sounded more alive.
All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Although it hardly deserved it, Try This -- Pink's 2003 sequel to her 2001 artistic and commercial breakthrough, M!ssundaztood -- turned out to be something of a flop, selling considerably less than its predecessor and generating no true hit singles. Perhaps this downturn in sales was due to the harder rock direction she pursued on Try This, perhaps the songs she co-wrote with Rancid's Tim Armstrong weren't quite pop even if they were poppy, perhaps it was just a matter of timing, but the album just didn't click with a larger audience, through no fault of the music, which was the equal to that on M!ssundaztood. When faced with such a commercial disappointment, some artists would crawl back to what made them a star, but not Pink. Although she does pump up the dance on 2006's I'm Not Dead, it's way too simple to call the album a return to "Get the Party Started" -- Pink is far too complex to do something so straightforward. No, Pink is complicated, often seemingly contradictory: she tears down "porno paparazzi girls" like Paris Hilton just as easily as she flaunts her bling on "'Cuz I Can"; she celebrates that "I Got Money Now"; she'll swagger and snarl and swear like a sailor, then turn around and write sweet songs of support to a teenager, or a knowingly melancholy reflection like "I Got Money Now"; she'll collaborate with Britney Spears hitmaker Max Martin on one track, then turn around and bring in the Indigo Girls for support on a stripped-down protest song. She'll try anything, and she does on I'm Not Dead. It Ping-Pongs between dense dancefloor anthems and fuzzy power pop, acoustic folk-rock and anthemic power ballads, hard rock tunes powered by electronic beats and dance tunes sung with the zeal of a rocker. It's not just that Pink tries a lot of different sounds, it's that she seizes the freedom to hurl insults at both George W. Bush and a sleazoid who tried to pick her up at a bar, or to end a chorus with a chant of "Ice cream, ice cream/We all want ice cream." Far from sounding cow-towed by the reaction to Try This, Pink sounds liberated, making music that's far riskier and stranger than anything else in mainstream pop in 2006. And it's a testament to her power as both a musician and a persona that for this record, even though she's working with singer/songwriter Butch Walker, Max Martin, and Teddy Geiger's cohort, Billy Mann -- her most mainstream collaborators since LA Reid and Babyface helmed her 2000 debut, Can't Take Me Home -- she sounds the strangest she ever has, and that's a positively thrilling thing to hear. That's because she not only sounds strange, she sounds stronger as a writer and singer, as convincing when she's singing the bluesy, acoustic "The One That Got Away" as when she's taunting and teasing on "Stupid Girls" or "U + Ur Hand" or when she's singing a propulsive piece of pure pop like "Leave Me Alone (I'm Lonely)." In other words, she sounds complex: smart, funny, sexy, catchy, and best of all, surprising and unpredictable. This is the third album in a row where she's thrown a curve ball, confounding expectations by delivering a record that's wilder, stronger, and better than the last. And while that's no guarantee that I'm Not Dead will be a bigger hit than Try This, at least it's proof positive that there are few pop musicians more exciting in the 2000s than Pink.
Billboard
Pink's sound is more aggressive this time and owes more to '80s pop/rock than contemporary hip-hop -- with dollops of folk and blues. Michael Paoletta

    Great Album!

    I found the song 'Dear Mr. President' honestly by accident and just fell in LOVE with it!<BR/><BR/>Her words are the BEST use of freedom of speech I have seen in years! It is SO true! Her music is so honest and to watch her videos where she is live, singing 'Dear Mr. President' I cry--honestly! Because I feel EXACTLY the same way! <BR/><BR/>I have to say I wish 'Stupid Girls' had come out when I was a teenager (early 90s) because this is EXACTLY how I felt then; although at the time I was more of a misfit because I did and do now feel that way.<BR/><BR/>For the record, I am over 30 and married to a US Navy sailor.

    Good, not amazing. I own four of P!nk's current five records (not Try This) and am eagerly awaiting The Truth About Love. This is better than Missundaztood, not as good as Can't Take Me Home, and as good as Funhouse. This is what I think about each song...

    Stupid Girls-8/10- Clever, funny, and it actually has replay value! P!nk pokes fun at slutty celebrities like Jessica Simpson or Paris Hilton, and sends a good message about originality and how the popular thing isn't always the good thing.

    Who Knew-5/10- Not one I particularly like. I guess it's all right, but she has a whiny tone of voice and I don't like the way the music blends with the song. I skip it if comes up on my iPod.

    Long Way To Happy-6/10- Better than Who Knew, but I think the music is better than the lyrics. Melodic, but again, a little whiny.

    Nobody Knows-3/10- I do not like any of Alecia Moore's ballads. They are all either complainy, totally of the time, have no replay value, or are just bad, musically or lyrically. Her voice also sounds better on loud raucous songs than slow somber ballads.

    Dear Mr. President-0/10- Oh dear lord. What were the songwriters thinking? No one wants to listen to a song about a president who isn't even in office anymore. I know the album came out in 2006, but that means that after two years, the track would have no more value. Not to mention, it was never a good song.

    I'm Not Dead-8/10- Much better. Finally we're out of a bad ballad minefield, and into some classic P!nk. Loud and fun, but with meaningful lyrics and some well done slow bits. Can't resist the bridge.

    Cuz I Can-9/10- About how awesome she is and how she can do whatever she feels. A bit boastful, but again, fun. The ice cream thing is so random but awesome.

    Leave Me Alone (I'm Lonely)-8/10- Perfectly sums up how every girl feels some time in her life. You love your partner, but don't always want them there bothering you! Good music, too.

    U + Ur Hand-9/10- Wicked amazing. Guys should sure take note of this song- Girls are human beings too!

    Runaway-Conversations With My Thirteen Year Old Self- Honestly, the songs all started to bend together right about here. Runaway is good, The One That Got Away is dull, I Got Money Now is depressing, and Conversations With My Thirteen Year Old Self is clich&eacute;. Overall, a good album, not amazing, but worth a buy for the five or six great tracks.

    Awesome.

    I appreciate someone with her own views. "Stupid Girls" is, of course, simply amazing. It makes me laugh and reminds me, once again, that I don't have to be a size quadruple-zero with straight, platinum-blonde hair to be a good person. "Dear Mr. President", too, is something I can relate to - those are pretty much my views, and I really admire the fact that Pink put them in a song that anyone can listen to - including our president. I have to say that my favourite song, however, is "Leave Me Alone (I'm Lonely)". This album is definitely strong on every aspect, and has songs for every mood!

    An okay CD, but not what I love about Pink

    An okay CD, but not what I love about Pink. This slightly campy, half-hearted attempt to poke fun at the typical Hollyweird girl, I just wasn’t that impressed with this CD. Perhaps it was because I had too high expectations. When you come out with an incredible CD (Missundaztood), it’s hard to follow up. This reminded me of an attempt to write a sequel to a blockbuster movie, using the same formula and writing style to come up with another catchy phrase. Rather like Arnold in Terminator II when he said, “I’ll Be Back.” And it caught on, then in every movie he attempted to make another line as catchy and it just seemed silly. Pinks vocals are good and if this had come before Missunazstood, it might have seemed fresh, but it wasn’t for me.

    AWSOME

    I commend Pink for finally writing a song like "Stupid Girls" It's about time someone told girls, especially teenage girls, that the pretty and popular crowd aren't who you want or need to be. Every girl should listen to that song and see the video.

    Something for everyone

    Each one of Pink's previous albums has been different from the others. This album is no different, but by encompassing many different styles, from poppy dance tunes, to harder-edged rock, to ballads, and protest folk music. I loved this album from the first time I heard it. In a music industry where one artist puts out the same cookie-cutter rubbish as all the others out there just to sell, it's refreshing to find an artist who dares to be different.

    This is the best CD ever. Each song has a point like Dear Mr. President and Stupid Girls. It was deffently worth waiting 3 years for. Rules over ALL her other albums. And the last track is called I Have Seen The Rain, a duet with her father. Buy this CD.
