Did a quick search and couldn't find one, so I thought I'd make it.

I've always heard her songs without knowing they were her, but only during late last year I really discovered the phenomenon known as P!nk.

One of the most talented yet overlooked artists out there atm! Perfect is a brilliant song with one of the best music videos of recent times

The Funhouse Tour DVD is definitely worth getting.

I don't think she's too underrated nowadays, I'm sure her album was the biggest seller in America for the first few months of the year, selling steadily long after release and I think, still in Top 100 here and the States on iTunes.

I think she just isn't many peoples ultimate favourite, like we have on these boards with Britney, Gaga etc, I think P!nk is probably one of the most universally liked artists out there, with plenty of people liking her and her songs, but not crazy and loving her.

Her songs are awesome though, she puts effort into her videos, and her tours are amazing, I've seen her 3 times now and she just gets better and better each time.

I love her voice as well, there are some songs I hear that I just want to listen to P!nk singing because she has such a nice voice to listen to, and you can hear emotion in her voice,even in studio recordings, which is rare in a lot of singers these days. Currently I really want to hear her singing You & I by Lady Gaga, I think she'd absolutely slay it, the song has P!nk written all over it, it's unlikely she'll cover it, but I'd bloody love it to happen!

I can't wait for the next album (if there is one) and what the tour will bring.

This time I'm definitely not going to miss out.

Her Grammy's 2010 performance was unreal.

Her acrobatic skills are insane.

Her AMA 2010 performance gives me the shivers.

I love her voice too. She's my fave female singer. The way she sings on 'Please Don't Leave Me' - gets to me every time. Her voice is so emotionally charged on that song.

Previously to the 'Funhouse' album she'd pretty much passed me by. I had heard of her but once I heard a couple of songs from 'Funhouse' I had to buy that album. Then I decided to slowly but surely purchase the rest of her albums. So many excellent songs.

Funny how sometimes you're late in really appreciating someone's talent; but once you have you don't let go.

Hope she does make another album as it would be interesting to see what she comes up with.

I still dont believe she has released a song as good as "Just Like a Pill" in the 10 years since that song first came out.

P!nk is one of my all times! grew up with her, Britney, Xtina, Destinys Child. Cannot believe how left behind i felt she was and now its like she was re-introduced and getting more deserved attention!

Missundaztood is my fave album, Im Not Dead and FUnhouse are really strong and her Hits album is immense! She has covered a lot of ground. I feel she is very much the Dark Horse of Pop. In that sense i mean she doesnt follow trends or sets them, she just goes in that studio or on that stage and performs and sings her ass off because she wants to and its her own vision!

And also vocally i think she is overlooked too! She has such a raw raspy style vocal! Up there with the best for sure

I love the way she can totally belt it on big tracks like Long Way to Happy or U + UR Hand, then give me goosebumps with songs like Glitter in the Air and I Don't Believe You for example. Then there's the fun side with Stupid Girls and So What, she's such a great artist.

I think her return after pregnancy will finally be here era, when she gets the awards she deserves, she already gets the attention for performances and her tracks do well enough, I just want to see her grab the headlines for sweeping the board at the Grammy's or something.

She's a great talent with her diversity of songs. Uptempo, fun, angsty .... she seems to be able to pull them all off convincingly.

You can YouTube for the recordings of her tours, the Try This Tour, I'm Not Dead Tour and Funhouse Tour (I think).

Yeah, YouTube clips would give us some idea but I guess you'd have to experience her live to fully appreciate her.

I've got the 'Funhouse Tour' DVD which is begging me to play it all in its entirety sometime soon.

Love P!nk's music! love the attitude she has in a lot of her songs! I really like the way she expessing her emotions in songs especially through the lyrics whether it's anger, an I don't care attitude or (rarely it seems) happy. I also like the fact she's not trying to be 'out there' for attention like other so called pop stars and singers - mentioning no names!

So What! - brilliant song! Love the attitude in the song, love the video with real reaction to her on the lawn mower! Perfect for in the car on full blast with the windows downs!
Just Like A Pill - classic P!nk, will always be a good song for me!
Favourites from I'm Not Dead - Who Knew, Long Way To Happy, Nobody Knows, Leave Me Alone and although overplayed U + Ur Hand.
Favourites from Funhouse - Sober, I Don't Belive You, One Foot Wrong (love this song!), Please Don't Leave Me, Funhouse and Crystalball.......and ofcourse So What!

I love the song Perfect as well!
I really don't like Family Portrait though - but I'm allowed just one song I don't like

Her concerts always seem brilliant and I would love to see her live.

Agreed! All her music is memorable and she just releasing brilliant songs - with added attitude, which for me sells it!

P!nk's attitude is great and if motherhood changes her attitude - I won't be happy!

Exactly this - you have a much better way with words than me! She's one of only a few artists atm, that can do big tracks, upbeat tracks and slower tracks that sound good.

She does deserve recognition for her work, she's much more original than a lot of the music around now. Her live shows are huge and she never seems to loose her attitude, she always seems 'herself' and never comes across as fake. She's always true to her attitude and it shows through the lyrics to her songs and the songs in general. Keep the good tracks coming P!nk!

I adore Pink! One of my favourite artists for sure. I think she was underrated at one point but most people realise how amazing she is now thankfully. She never fails to deliver in songs, videos, performances, tours, activism. She's just an overall fantastic artist.
