Kylie Minogue

This is going to sound strange coming from me—someone who champions the 2:30 track length—but I think that the six minute+ track lengths work for "Falling" and "Where Has The Love Gone?" I feel like it's a bit hard to judge them now with a 2022 lens because shorter tracks have become the norm. The track length gives each track the room to breathe and build. I like how atmospheric they are. Atmospheric is a great word to describe KM94 in general, imo.

Except for "Time Will Pass You By." She can choke.
 
They/them, he/him
I don't mind Where Has The Love Gone, but yes it did very much need an edit to it. As for Falling...

It needed a complete retool like the original Pet Shop Boys demo. Saying that it would have fitted with the soundscape of the rest of KM94 (which continues to her magnum opus in my opinion).
 
Time will pass you by would have charted at about #28 and been out of the chart a week later.

What I love about Deconstruction is that they made some very expensive decisions that had no chance of being a hit. They could easily have done a single edit of the Bish Bosh remix of Where Is The Feeling with Kylie dancing about in a video clip and it would have done well. And I love that they went for the talking remix with Kylie swimming about in a pool instead.

I find it pretty funny that almost every song on self-titled was considered to be a single at one point or another. What a poorly managed campaign.

I think there are very few examples of really good campaigns from Deconstruction. The quality is there though, but it's not surprising they went bankrupt.

I think Surrender would have made a good single.

The 10-minute version of Where Has The Love Gone on Hits+ has an amazing intro and I'm so grateful that they didn't cut it.

I mean they handled M People pretty well. I wouldn't necessarily blame deCon for everything that failed with Kylie. I think she was determined to do things very differently too. I just think they didn't understand her fanbase at all.

They're great at getting a handful of hits at best from big acts like Black Box, M People and Kylie.
 
I know it's quite popular yet Falling is the weak link on KM94 (as it's a solid beyond solid LP, that is not easy to say) yet replace Falling with Love Is Waiting. Perfect! (Well if you can improve on perfection)

And Dangerous Game is THE ONE! My infatuation song of all infatuation songs!

Always forgot about Love Is Waiting, but yes, that is quite a good song must admit.
