Music Friday: Pink Wants You to Check Out Her ‘Gold Diamond Rings’ in 2001’s ‘Get the Party Started’

Welcome to Music Friday when you bring you fabulous songs with jewelry, gemstones or precious metals in the title or lyrics. Today we kick off the New Year with Pink’s 2001 international blockbuster, “Get the Party Started.” In the very first verse of this good-time dance anthem, Pink gives a nod to her fashionable jewelry: “I got lotsa style, got my gold diamond rings.”

Described as “near perfection” by Stylus Magazine, “Get the Party Started” charted in 17 countries and reached #4 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. It was the first single from Pink’s wildly popular second album called Missundaztood. The album sold more than 12 million copies and is her most successful to date.

“Get the Party Started” is considered Pink’s signature song. She often performs it during the encores of live shows.

Alecia Beth Moore (better known as Pink) was born in Pennsylvania in 1979. Originally a member of the girl group Choice, Pink launched her solo career in 2000 with the single, “There You Go.” The rest is history, as she has gone on to become one of the most successful and influential artists of her generation.

“When Alecia Moore debuted in 2000, pop was dominated by long-locked blonds like Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and Jessica Simpson,” wrote Glamour Magazine. “Pink changed the game. Without her, the last 13 years of big-voiced, tough chick music is hard to imagine.”

“Get the Party Started”
Written by Linda Perry. Performed by Pink.

I’m comin’ up so you better get this party started
I’m comin’ up so you better get this party started

Get this party started on a Saturday night
Everybody’s waiting for me to arrive
Sendin’ out the message to all of my friends
We’ll be looking flashy in my Mercedes Benz
I got lotsa style, got my gold diamond rings
I can go for miles if you know what I mean
I’m comin’ up so you better get this party started
I’m comin’ up so you better get this party started

Pumping up the volume, breaking down to the beat
Cruisin’ through the west side
We’ll be checkin’ the scene
Boulevard is freakin’ as I’m comin’ up fast
I’ll be burnin’ rubber, you’ll be kissin’ my hands
Pull up to the bumper, get out of the car
License plate says Stunner #1 Superstar

I’m comin’ up so you better get this party started
I’m comin’ up so you better get this party started
Get this party started

Making my connection as I enter the room
Everybody’s chilling as I set up the groove
Pumpin’ up the volume with this brand new beat
Everybody’s dancing and they’re dancing for me
I’m your operator, you can call anytime
I’ll be your connection to the party line

I’m comin’ up so you better get this party started
I’m comin’ up so you better get this party started
I’m comin’ up so you better get this party started
I’m comin’ up so you better get this party started
Get this party started
Get this party started right now
Get this party started
Get this party started
Get this party started right now
