A wider release of the 'Sainsburys' vinyl from a couple of years ago, I'd imagine.
When the Mirwais collab eventually comes out, are we expecting it to be a pop Kylie collab or an alt Kylie collab?
I love In Your Eyes but it's not an example of "sophisticated" lyrics.
I am willing to sell my soul for her own God Control, but I doubt anything so amazing will come,
As long as we don’t get her Killers Who Are Partying, I think I’m good.
I did think that too, ha.
This is the first single from the Mirwais album Kylie's featured on. I'm guessing it'll fit somewhere in the middle of the pop-alt spectrum.
Why are there no bad songs on Fever.
I should clarify - by 'sophisticated' I didn't mean meaningful, deep or revealing. Certainly I didn't mean that 'serious' lyrics are the only kind that can be sophisticated. I meant song writing that is secure and not trying too hard, writers that know how to cleverly yet simply twist a phrase, lyrics that feel totally at home and at pace with the music.
Dance music and frivolous lyrics about love, dancing and nightlife to me can still be all of those things, and I often think of them as stylish, clever, sophisticated even if they don't really dig too deep beneath the surface.
It's a totally subjective thing of course. To me In Your Eyes is absolutely sophisticated. It has the lyrical call back to a very recent hit that doesn't feel shoehorned, and the line "I want to make it with you" - no one actually says that but it's the sort of thing that would probably come out off the cuff while buzzed on a dancefloor. It's simple but it's coy, it's playful - it captures attention.
Most importantly, Kylie sounds at ease delivering the lines in a way I don't think she does on something like "She know how to party but nothing like me and you" - but again it's all subjective.
Perhaps I've used the wrong word with 'sophisticated'. It's not about being highbrow or pretentious. The bridge on Looking for an Angel is one of my favourites and it begins "When good things are good" ... Yet it's so earnest that it works.
Give it to me says hi. Dancefloor is basic AF although not objectively bad.
Those are the 2 I would have probably switched out with some of the B-sides. 'Boy' could have replaced Give It To Me. It has a similar 'electro' vibe about it but just works better for me. 'Tightrope', 'Baby' or 'Rendezvous' could have replaced Dancefloor.
Give It To Me is a stone cold bop. Its been one of my favourite's since I first got the Fever CD. Was shocked to see the dislike around these parts.
I really hate the vocals on some of the songs on Fever, I was actually shocked at how nasal she sounded on Dancefloor and More, More, More when I first listened.
I really like Give It To Me and Dancefloor.
Unpopular opinion but I'm not too crazy over More, More, More.
But the album did need to try and find a place for Tightrope.
Personally, I really enjoy "Give It To Me." The lowlights on Fever for me are "More More More," "Dancefloor" and "Your Love," but I'd only call "Dancefloor" bad.
More More More is my favourite album track on Fever...oopsh. It's so floaty and lush.
The truth tea is that Fever is miles better than Light Years.
G A S P — Fever is such a solid album through and through, being in America it was kind of my first introduction to Kylie (I remember my parents playing the locomotion to me as a kid, but I was too young to fully enjoy it).
when I finally turned 18 I went to Barnes and Noble and bought the two Kylie CDs they had available. (Fever, Ultimate)
Surely that's an undisputable fact.
