PINK (song)

"Pink" is a song by American hard rock band Aerosmith. It was written by Steven Tyler and professional songwriters Richie Supa and Glen Ballard. It was released as the third major single from Nine Lives in 1997.

VIDEO
The video starts with Tyler playing the harmonica, followed by Perry cleaning his face thinking he's using a mirror, Whitford putting his sunglasses on, dressing as a race car driver, Tom Hamilton shows his closeup and Joey Kramer walking forward until the viewer sees a closeup of him. Tyler sings the first verse, morphed as a boy dressed as the Easter Bunny. While he is singing the first verse, random people appear: a woman dressed as a biker, a woman dressed in a blue jumpsuit begins to unzip her jumpsuit, a shirtless man wearing red parachute pants dancing, an elderly woman showing her flexible strength and an elderly woman dancing randomly.
As the song reaches its end of the first verse, Tyler is now morphed in a woman's body interspersed by a female ballroom dancer, a shaved-head woman wearing a lock around her neck followed by Tyler morphed as a tattooed lady, followed by the ballroom dancer smiling, a marilynesque woman walking for no reason, a black-wearing lady. Tyler appears unmorphed in the beginning of the chorus followed by a strongman's chest testing the strength, a blonde-haired woman wearing a 1940s style clothes and sporting plaits (possibly representing Pippi Longstocking).

Perry plays the guitar, wearing a white suit, followed by a sumo wrestler walking. Tyler later morphs into a golden-covered skeleton wearing a top hat, followed by a trance dancer, a female dancer dancing until the viewer sees a closeup of the black-wearing lady, followed by the trance dancer. A dwarf walks later followed by a gothic man, an Aborigine and a beauty pageant queen with some parts of her face covered in burns. The dwarf walks out and a couple wearing 50s-style black and white clothing have their dance followed by Hamilton morphed as the sumo wrestler.

The song begins its second verse, as a woman wearing just underwear dancing, followed by Tyler morphed as a bodybuilder, with the underwear-wearing woman dancing and a tattooed woman sporting turquoise hair (possibly Julia Gnuse) walking. Then, a shirtless young man dances randomly followed by a shirtless man holding the dwarf and the strongman walking. Later, a naked woman painted blue and green does a pirouette (In the censored version, she is only shown in from the waist down).

The chorus resumes, with a man donning a large beard (inspired by ZZ Top) walking. Perry now wearing a black suit inspired by his early years with Aerosmith playing the guitar. Then Hamilton morphed as the flexible woman stands up singing his backing vocals, a cape-wearing man appears dancing and a set of female twins dance. Whitford (morphed as an older woman wearing black on the top and white in the bottom) sings his backing vocals, followed by Hamilton and then a woman dressed as The Statue of Liberty does a pirouette with Kramer (morphed as a dog wiggling his tongue) expresses himself with her.

Then as the bridge begins, the parachute pants-wearing runs, followed by the jumpsuit-wearing woman. Perry, now morphed as a centaur does a guitar solo interspersed by the tattooed woman and the Aborigine running, followed by the black-wearing woman and the trance dancer. When Tyler ends the bridge, the people stop walking.

As the song reaches the climax, Tyler sings followed by a closeup of the ballroom dancer licking her lips. Then the female biker sings, followed by the tattooed woman. Later the underwear woman sings, followed by the trance dancer. Then Kramer morphed as a topless woman covering the breasts (replaced by a bikini in the censored version) sings his backing vocals, followed by Whitford morphed as the parachute pants-wearing. The gothic man morphed as Perry plays the guitar. Then a belly dancer dances and Tyler walks singing his vocals with Perry's backing vocals. (In the censored version, after the belly dancer finished dancing, Tyler and Perry, now morphed as a two headed Perry sings) L

Later the jumpsuit wearing woman exposes her breast which Tyler becomes stunned which the woman covers it. (In the censored version, the scene is shortened by two seconds) Hamilton morphed as the 40s-style woman sings his last vocals, followed by Kramer morphed as the cape-wearing man and Whitford morphed as a young boy. Then the random people show their close-up. As the song finishes, Tyler shows his close-up by making a funny face, smiles and bows out as the video finishes.

PINK

Pink is a pale red colour, which takes its name from the flower of the same name. According to surveys in Europe and the United States, pink is the colour most commonly associated with charm, politeness, sensitivity, tenderness, sweetness, childhood, the feminine, and the romantic. When combined with violet or black, it is associated with eroticism and seduction. Pink was first used as a colour name in the late 17th century.

Etymology
The color pink is named after the flowers called pinks, flowering plants in the genus Dianthus. The name derives from the frilled edge of the flowers—the verb "to pink" dates from the 14th century and means "to decorate with a perforated or punched pattern" (possibly from German "pinken" = to peck). As noted and referenced above, the word "pink" was first used as a noun to refer to the color known today as pink in the 17th century. The verb sense of the word "pink" continues to be used today in the name of the hand tool known as pinking shears.
Dianthus Caryophyllus
  
History, art and fashion in the 20th century
for more look at WikiPeda: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pink
In the 20th century, pinks became bolder, brighter and more assertive, in part because of the invention of chemical dyes which did not fade. The pioneer in the creation of the new wave of pinks was the Italian designer Elsa Schiaparelli, (1890-1973) who was aligned with the artists of the surrealist movement, including Jean Cocteau. In 1931 she created a new variety of the color, called Shocking pink, made by mixing magenta with a small amount of white. She also created a scandal by launching a perfume of the same name, sold in a bottle in the shape of a woman's bust. Her fashions, co-designed with artists such as Cocteau, featured the new pinks.

In Nazi Germany in the 1930s and 1940s, inmates of concentration camps who were accused of homosexuality were forced to wear a pink triangle. Because of this, the pink triangle has become a symbol of the modern gay rights movement.

The transition to pink as a sexually differentiating color for girls occurred gradually, through the selective process of the marketplace, in the 1930s and 40s. In the 1920s, some groups had actually been describing pink as a masculine color, an equivalent of the red that was considered to be for men, but lighter for boys. But stores nonetheless found that people were increasingly choosing to buy pink for girls, and blue for boys, until this became an accepted norm in the 1940s.

Franz West "Flause" (1998); Aluminium
In 1973, Sheila Levrant de Bretteville created "Pink," a broadside meant to explore the notions of gender as associated with the color pink, for an American Institute of Graphic Arts exhibition about color. This was the only entry about the color pink. Various women including many in the Feminist Studio Workshop at the Woman's Building submitted entries exploring their association with the color. De Bretteville arranged the squares of paper to form a "quilt" from which posters were printed and disseminated throughout Los Angeles. She was often called "Pinky" as a result.

Christo and Jeanne-Claude's Surrounded Islands wrapped wooded islands in Miami's Biscayne Bay with 6,500,000 sq ft (600,000 m2) of bright pink fabric. Thomas von Taschitzki has said that "the monochrome pink wrappings"..."form a counterpoint to the small green wooded islands."

Many of Franz West's aluminium sculptures were often painted a bright pink, for example Sexualitätssymbol (Symbol of Sexuality). West has said that the pink was intended as an "outcry to nature".
