Riff: Pink – “Try”

Dec 19, 2012

Funny how the heart can be deceiving/More than just a couple times

from Try lyrics by Pink

Aiming for the same emotional impact of “Who Knew,” but falling far short, Pink plays the motivational self-help guru on an 80s FM rock lighter-waving power ballad which extols the virtues of the dangers that come hand in hand with chasing true love. Deepak Chopra shouldn’t be too worried just yet.
