  1. If we're talking proper nostalgia here, get the shaky carousel horse from "Got To Be Certain" back
     
  2. True. Especially the ears.
     
  3. The memories.

    Unlikely..... but I wouldn't be mad
     
  5. I would hate that; please don't do that.

  6. The line 'queens and fairies and muscle Marys' kind of makes me die inside each time I hear it.
     
  7. It was 1998. People didn't have to think seven times before saying something.

  8. Hmmm this feels... pointed.
     
  9. The line doesn't offend me, it just sounds cringe coming from Kylie. The next line 'The rough trade boyfriend' is even more cringe as well.
     
  10. I hear it more as her singing as the young daughter character unable to fully accept her father is gay.

  11. Those lines were co-written by an out gay man and while the terms are hideously dated, they were fairly standard, if cliched, archetypes in written media representations when I first came on the scene at the end of the 90s.

    In 20 years, some of the terminology we use to describe certain tribes now will sound absolutely cringe in song lyrics.

  12. Except we already know the writers from iTunes info and Johnny Douglas (who wrote Disco Down) isn't one of them.

    But yes please to performing it on the next tour. It was magnificent at The Anti Tour.
     
  13. I don’t think anyone was suggesting they were problematique just cringe? (I personally don’t find them that cringe but it’s the vibe I got)

  14. Yeah if I was hearing it in the context of the musical it wouldn't have sounded so cringe but it kind of makes my toes curl hearing Kylie sing those words.

    "Neil, Chris, just so I understand what I'm singing, what's a 'rough trade boyfriend'?"

  15. 'Michael Hutchence'
     
  16. I sort of love how deliciously overt those terms sounds.
     
  17. Ordered the Amazon exclusive from UK just because Germany's Amazon doesn't carry it as of now. I really anticipate this album so so so much. Something just feels absolutely right about it - and Say Somethin' was the first proof about it. It really grows more into being one of Kylie's finest with each listen. It basically touches everything that's great about Kylie without making it sound novelty, nostalgia act or in desperate need of keeping up with the young folks. It's just a brillant pop song.

  19. Apparently Kylie is the horse. What a stretch.

    Although it would be good publicity for the new album.
