  1. Kylie could not have done to Toxic what Britney did. Everything special and amazing about it is down to Britney and they way she made it her own. It’s not a Kylie song in any way. Nor does it fit in with Body Language.

    On the subject of Chocolate, the rap is perfect. It adds something extra to the song and Ludacris would have given her some added exposure in a way that Mims never could due to his status. Kylie fans tend to have a weird and problematic reaction to anything remotely Hip Hop or Rap.
     
  2. Red Blooded Woman song appears on a UK based TV show called "Still close", it is on Netflix and the show itself is brilliant and the song is placed on a good segment, its on episode 3 for those who are interested.
     
  3. Red Blooded Woman, is a Kylie gem I think. Loved it at the time and still fond of it now.

  5. Comparing Ludacris to Mims is like comparing apples and oranges. It was obvious to everyone—besides her label—that Mims would do very little to help Kylie's prospects in the US—a baffling choice on top of a baffling single choice.

    Ludacris was a much more inspired choice of collaborator, but I don't know if his inclusion on "Chocolate" would've helped it do better either. "Chocolate" always felt like an odd single choice from Body Language, but that being said, beyond "Slow" and "Red Blooded Woman," I don't think that there were any other tracks that could work as a single—maybe "Sweet Music" or "Secret (Take You Home)." If anything, I probably would've approach a rapper to appear on "Red Blooded Woman," which was her best opportunity of scoring a US hit, imo.

  6. The thing is Fever took off in the US because it sounded like nothing else on radio/MTV at the time. I think Red Blooded Woman ultimately faltered in the US because it was a poor attempt at sounding/looking like everything that already dominated the charts at the time. Slow was definitely too left of center to take off, and ultimately, I’m not really sure there was anything on Body Language that would have made more sense as a single in the States.
     
  7. Wow! Would love to hear that!
     
  8. I always thought Promises and Secret would have been great singles. (such brilliant 80's throwbacks).

  9. Secret, not being a single was a waste I think.

  10. I wonder if they had real plans to get Sean Paul on Cruise Control, or did they just slot in the first rap verse they could find?
     
  11. Always wondered that too, even more so as he wasn't even credited in the first place.
     
  12. I think if Toxic was made into a slower version, her vocals would have suited it perfectly. Definitely not in its official current form, though. Kind of like the Yael Naim version or even a slow jazz version. But it would probably not end up being a hit like it is to this day.

  13. It was a complete accident:
     
  14. There is not a single song on Body Language, that would've worked with an American audience or within the U.S. musical landscape in 2004. The end.
     
  15. "Cruise Control" slapped so hard. Purchasing the "Red Blooded Woman" single was such a quality purchase. "Almost A Lover" and "Cruise Control" are two of my favorite Kylie b-sides. And the Chemical Brothers remix of "Slow" on the same CD? Iconic.
     
  16. 'City Games' was always one of my favourites of the era. It had a bit more oomph to it than a lot of the album tracks.
     
  17. The Chemical Brothers’ mix of Slow made Kylie cool again. It was quite the moment, despite RBW underperforming.

  18. The only missed opportunity on Body Language was not releasing Secret as the final single.
     
  19. I agree, easily two of Kylie's best CD singles ever.
