    Summary quotation from Wikipedia:

    “Blow Me (One Last Kiss)” is a song by American recording artist and songwriter Pink, released as the lead single from her sixth studio album The Truth About Love. The song was scheduled for a July 9 premiere but was delivered a week earlier after an initial version was leaked online. Produced by Greg Kurstin, the song was named as “classic P!nk”, and was really well received by music critics who compared it to previous hits by P!nk including “So What” and “Raise Your Glass”.

    With “Blow Me (One Last Kiss)”, P!nk ranks third among women with most Top 10s since 2000, behind Rihanna and Beyoncé, with twelve Top 10 hits in the USA, after scoring a massive jump on the Hot 100 during the song’s second week, leaping from #58 to #9 after promotion on the iTunes Store.

    The video for “Blow Me (One Last Kiss)” features a black and white picture and was directed by longtime collaborator Dave Meyers who directed almost half of her career’s 33 videos. It premiered on July 27, 2012 on MTV and VEVO.

Background

    On October 7, 2011, RCA Music Group announced that it would be disbanding Jive Records, along with Arista and J Records. With the shutdown, Pink and all other artists previously signed to the labels, would release any future material through RCA Records. In 2011, Joe Riccitelli, an executive with the label, announced that Pink was preparing to enter the studio to begin work on her sixth studio album, to be released in September 2012. On February 29, 2012, Pink took to her Twitter account and confirmed that she is currently in the writing process for her new record. On June 19, 2012, Pink announced via a video on Twitter that the first single from her upcoming album will be called “Blow Me (One Last Kiss)” and that it would be released on July 9, 2012. She added, “I think you’re going to like it, because I really like it, and I like it enough for all of us.” However, the demo version of the song leaked on July 1, 2012, a week before its scheduled release. The next day, it was released via Pink’s official page and her Youtube account. On July 4, 2012, Pink announced that her sixth studio album will be titled The Truth About Love.

    Speaking to Billboard Magazine in August 2012, Greg Kurstin revealed that he and the singer had trouble coming up with a name for the track.The producer had been working with Pink on an intense nine-day songwriting session that yielded six songs. One particular track, an empowering breakup anthem in the vein of “So What,” seemed like it might be written and recorded within a day-it just needed a title. “She kept coming back to ’Let’s throw in the towel,’ and it was one of those things where we had to say, ’Is that line really the song?’” Kurstin recalled. “So then I came back with ’Blow me … one last kiss’ and we got really excited. Most of the time with P!nk she’s so strong writing lyrics I don’t really interfere. I let her do her thing. That could’ve been the only time I did that.”

Composition

    “Blow Me (One Last Kiss)” is an uptempo electropop and dance-pop song with influences of dance music and a duration of four minutes and 16 seconds, produced by Greg Kurstin. The song begins with some electronic arrangements before evolving into pop rock, basically on instrumentation sampled from the American Indie rock band Modest Mouse’s “Float On”. Jessica Sager commented that “from the harmonies to the rock-style drums to ’Raise Your Glass’-esque shout-along chorus to the liquor references”, the song is musically “signature Pink”. The song was named as “classic Pink”, with a “swear-jar-worthy chorus” and an “an abrupt key change that only a singer like her could pull off.” However, the song never changes keys. It stays in the key of G for the entire time.

    It opens with Pink singing the lines, “White knuckles and sweaty palms from hanging on too tight, clenched shut jaw, I’ve got another headache again tonight, eyes on fire, eyes on fire, and the burn from all the tears, I’ve been crying, I’ve been crying, I’ve been dying over you. Tie a knot in the rope, trying to hold, trying to hold, but there’s nothing to grab so I let go.” On “Blow Me (One Last Kiss)”, Pink performs “energetic and vengeful as ever” with the verses being called “wordy yet stinging”, as she sings: “I won’t miss all of the fighting/ That we always did/ Take it in/ I mean what I say when I say there is nothing left/ No more sick whiskey dick/ No more battles from me/ You’ll be calling a trick/ ’Cause you no longer sleep/ I’ll dress nice, I’ll look good/ I’ll go dancing alone/ I will laugh, I’ll get drunk/ I’ll take somebody home.” A pumping pop beat with synths highlights the “anthemic” chorus when she sings the lines “I think I’ve finally had enough, I think I maybe think too much, I think this might be it for us (blow me one last kiss), you think I’m just too serious, I think you’re full of shit, my head is spinning so (blow me one last kiss).”

    “Blow Me (One Last Kiss)” is written in the key of G major with a moderate tempo of 114 beats per minute. Pink’s vocal range on this track spans from E3 to G5, and the song follows a chord progression of G6GBmEmC.

Music video

Background

    The music video for “Blow Me (One Last Kiss)” premiered on July 26, 2012 at 7:50pm EDT on MTV and VEVO and was directed by P!nk’s longtime collaborator Dave Meyers, who directed the videos for almost all of her lead singles and many of her hits. The official colored version of the video was leaked online on August 31. And was officially posted on VEVO on September 5, 2012.

Synopsis

    The video was shot entirely in black and white, with splashes of color and features opening titles in French, it begins with P!nk on a picnic with her love interest (Michael Cardelle) on a romantic setting, the two almost kiss before his phone rings, interrupting the kiss. As he takes the phone call, P!nk is disappointed and splashes him with a red drink, presumably red wine and walks away. As she walks away, she gets rid of her long dress and remains in a white bodysuit. She meets another man (Alexander Echeverria) and goes home with him, where he paints her. A party is about to begin. P!nk watches through the window as many female guests arrive. During the dance, P!nk arrives wearing a black suit with her hair pushed back. She dances with one of the women (Mosh) until she is interrupted by the man who brought her home; he gets down on one knee and proposes. P!nk is amazed and accepts by giving him her hand but is disappointed to find out the proposal was meant for her dance partner. During their wedding ceremony, P!nk is dressed completely in black with lace covering her eyes as if she is attending a funeral. Meanwhile, a flying bike (Andreas Holm-Hansen) pops a heart-shaped balloon containing the same red liquid from the beginning of the video, the liquid sprays the attendees as P!nk sings and dances cheerfully. She joins the bike as they fly away together at the end of this clip over the countryside, under a bridge, over trees and near a hill. A colored version was also released.

Lyric Video

    There has also been a lyric video released for “Blow Me (One Last Kiss)”. It features a girl with speech bubbles coming out of her mouth which says the lyrics. The swear words “I think you’re full of shit”, “they had a shit day” and “whiskey dick” were not censored in the clean version

Reception

    MTV’s James Montgomery assured P!nk’s fans that she hasn’t changed, while crediting the video for its angry and funny nature, saying “While your heroine might be saying she’s a changed woman, the ’Blow Me’ video proves that she’s not. It’s just as angry as her previous clips, and nearly as funny too.”
