Yes, I think you could be right there.
Just played this:
Such an underrated song from the debut.
Should have been the last single.
Never knew Look My Way sampled this, although, never heard of the song before so that will explain it!
speaking of Look My Way
Shameless self promotion…
When I think of all the samples that are brazenly used in the PWL albums, I genuinely wonder how Pete got away with it (okay, sampling in pop and the legal process around it was still in its infancy) even as it's so brazenly done by Lets Get To It. And I bet you Pete would come down on you like a ton of bricks if you sampled him and he found out. He wouldn't be Mr Pop Anarchist of the Music Industry then.
Ironically he did just that with M/A/R/R/S in an effort to prevent Never Gonna Give You Up from being toppled from #1.
Is Put Yourself In My Place Kylie's best song? Maybe so.
It's definitely her best ballad.
It may be just that. It's timeless and if I'm being honest, I prefer it to Confide In Me.
Put Yourself In My Place is such a sexy song. That thick 90's base line instantly does it for me.
Of course I love that whole era.
Yet it really gets me that song.
The biggest shock sample being of course Janet Jackson's iconic spoken "I hope you enjoy this as much as I do" from Control on Too Much Of A Good Thing.
Since we're discussing KM94, I miss Kylie utilizing her lower register like she did on KM94.
To be honest, I think her vocals on KM94 sound a bit forced. It's especially noticeable in Dangerous Game for example where it sounds like she's pushing down her larynx so her voice sounds deeper.
In my opinion, she sounds the most balanced on Light Years, but I do appreciate how she is able to transport so much emotion and many different nuances with her voice today.
I always feel the album should have been called 'Look my way'. It is a perfect title for a debut.
Definitely not single worthy though.
I mean the same album had It's No Secret as a single, why not.
At least she was all fiesty in the It's no secret video with her sleazy ex (even if it was pure Charlene).
I do like the It's No Secret music video gotta say. Very much of it's time, but still fun.
