Preach. I identify with all of this.I still love KM94. I used it as my warmup music while getting ready to go out through much of my twenties. It built up just enough to amp me up for the club, but not so much so that I wanted to lay down and take a disco nap. Depending on my mood, I’d move to Fever or Body Language in the car and I’d be ready to go. Put Yourself in My Place remains one of my all-time favorite Kylie moments as well. It’s impossible to fault.
I don’t know how true this is, but I heard that she doesn’t do the song because Taio dumped her for Travie McCoy on the US version.
I don't think that Taio was being shady by having a different feature artist on the song for a different market. It used to be quite common place, like when Enrique Iglesias recorded three different versions of "Takin' Back My Love" with three different vocalists for different markets. Kylie being replaced on the US version makes a lot of sense. Kylie has never really been a chart force in the US, so her addition really wouldn't do anything for its potential US success.I find it odd that there was even a version made available to radio without Kylie. To me that screams of Taio being super shady. But I guess we’ll never truly know.
Oh, true. Most of her collaborative singles have occurred post-Kiss Me Once, when her status as a singles artist had more or less ended.Other than those and Higher I don’t think she’s released any other other collaborations as singles that haven’t appeared on her studio albums? Certainly not any other ones that were hits.
I don't know if this is true, but I read somewhere—it might have been in this thread actually—that a deciding factor as to why "Better Than Today" was made a single was because someone of importance at Radio 2 said that they'd playlist "Better Than Today" and nothing else from Aphrodite, so it really left Team Kylie with no choice but to release "Better Than Today."
