Songs famous musicians have written for other singers


Perry told Rolling Stone in 2019: “ [Christina Aguilera] stood there in my studio with the lyrics in her hands and then said to this friend she had brought, “Don’t look at me,” in that whispered little voice. I knew I was going to keep this on record, and I knew she was the right fit for the song. I realized, ‘Oh, she’s not safe. She is one of those beautiful people who have everything but who are not safe. Okay, this song is his. ”And when it came to writing “Get the Party Started” for Pink, Perry recalled, “I sent it to Madonna and she passed away, but a week later Alecia [Pink] called. She left me this message how she would find me if I didn’t call her back. I said, “I think you have the wrong Linda Perry. She said, “Was it Linda Perry who sang ‘Dear Mr. President’ in 4 Non Blondes?” Well I have the right person. I said to him, “Well, I have something that I wrote last week”, and I sent it to him. I guess she sent it to LA Reid and they said, “Okay, we’ve got our first single.” “
