14) P!nk – ‘Sober’

P!nk’s Top 10 hit from 2008, ‘Sober’, is about not resorting to drink or drugs, but the desire to still be uninhibited. According to Songfacts, in an interview with MTV she said: “I wrote a song called ‘Sober,’ which is actually really dark.

“I was at a party at my own house, I didn’t want to be there, I didn’t want anyone else there. And I had this line in my head saying, ‘How do I feel this good sober?,’ it’s not just about alcohol, it’s about vices, we all have different ones.

“We try to get away from ourselves, and find our ‘true selves’ and then we do these things that take us so far from the truth, I guess that ‘Sober’ is ‘How do I feel this good when it’s just me, without anything to lean on?”

This music video has now had 152 million views.

15) P!nk – ‘Walk Me Home’

‘Walk Me Home’ was released in February 2019 as the lead single from P!nk’s eighth album ‘Hurts 2B Human’.

Released in February 2002, ‘Don’t Let Me Get Me’ was another hit single from P!NK’s breakthrough album ‘Missundaztood’. To date, it’s had 121 million YouTube views, with the music video portraying P!NK as a school pupil and not conforming to her peers’ expectations, later going through the same scenario when trying to make it as an artist.

Similarly, the song is also about P!NK not conforming to what record labels in the early Noughties wanted her to be, which can be heard in the lyrics: ‘Tired of being compared / To damn Britney Spears / She’s so pretty / That just ain’t me.’
