''I came up with that beat, laid it down, found all these weird chords and sounds and put the horns. I was just having fun. I picked up a microphone and said, ''I’m just going to say every clichéd line I can think of''. And I came up with, ''Get the party started on a Saturday night'' and wrote a bunch of stuff down. I called up my manager afterwards and said, ''I just wrote a damn hit.'' It was too easy.'' - Linda Perry (songwriter)
"I didn't write ''Get the Party Started'', you'd have to ask Linda Perry if it's about ecstasy. I don't know what she meant with it. I still don't know if it's 'I'm coming out...' Or 'I'm coming up...' I don't even know what I sang." - Pink
''With that song, it became clear to me that helping artists with their vision is kind of cool. I got the bug. It’s not me and my drab emotions. I was putting on Pink’s clothes every day as she came in. It was an escape from myself.'' - Linda Perry (songwriter)
