A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this music.

Positive Messages

Some mixed messages. Though the song advocates for leaving a bad relationship, it also talks about avoiding problems ("I want back my ignorance and bliss"). 

Positive Role Models & Representations

Finding the strength to end an unhealthy relationship is certainly a good thing.


In addition to the double entendre about oral sex ("blow me") in the song title, one verse references sex and prostitution ("no more sick whiskey d--k ... you'll be calling a trick").


In the explicit version, the word "s--t" is repeated several times, and "d--k" is also used.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

Mentions being drunk a few times. 

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)" is a fairly mature break-up song that hearkens back to Pink's earlier, more adult releases. Its title is a nod to oral sex, with more sex referenced in the lyrics; the word "s--t" is repeated throughout the explicit version, and "d--k" also appears. The song also mentions being drunk a few times. That said, it does have a positive message about leaving an unhealthy relationship.

Great song

The clean version is really good because it unlike the explicit version it doesn't include "we've hade a s*** day" so I think 10 and up.

What's the story?

Returning to the studio for the first time in four years, pop star Pink is back with "BLOW ME (ONE LAST KISS)" -- the first single from her soon-to-come sixth studio album. Called "classic Pink" by some critics, the track describes a bad breakup and the activities leading up to it -- including a lot of fighting, dysfunctional sex, and drinking.

Is it any good?

All the qualities that make Pink's music appealing to her loyal fans are here in this track, including a power-pop hook and hard-driving vocals. While the approach isn't exactly original for the singer, it will please all those who've waited four long years for a new tune.  

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the juxtaposition between Pink's mellow family life with husband Carey Hart and baby daughter Willow, and her more turbulent songs, like this one. Do you think about an artist's personal life when you listen to a song?

  • Even when they've grown up and settled down, do formerly edgy artists have to continue to release controversial, mature songs in order to stay relevant? Why or why not? 

  • Is Pink a good role model? Why or why not?
