  1. The 4 X singles are the correct ones, the order just needed to be shuffled and would have likely done wonders for her standing at the time.

    Speakerphone is an iTunes exclusive/buzz single/pre-release track, but not a fully fledged single. Maybe give it a video and 1 promo performance.

    The GP most likely will not be doing the pop lock body rock.

  3. Remove All I See and swap The One with 2 Hearts for me.
  4. Had Put Yourself in My Place on repeat today.

    Still my all time fave Kylie vocal moment.

  5. To be fair, it was one of the only album tracks to chart on a Singles Chart from X (No. 87 on the Canadian Singles Chart).

  6. I still think 2 Hearts is only rivalled by Some Kind Of Bliss and Word Is Out, as the "what were they thinking??!" in terms of being a lead single. Decent enough songs but don't feel lead status either. The other leads, are Kylie classics, even Into The Blue in it's own way.

  7. “Into The Blue” made sense as it wouldn’t have sounded out of place on Aphrodite.

    “2 Hearts” and “Some Kind Of Bliss” were mistakes.

    I forget “All I See” was a single and I live in the US!
  8. I was rewatching this today and just yes. The Spinning Around remix is so inspired, it’s a shame we never got studio versions of this tour. It needs to be your next mix @hawkings24 pls <3

  9. This really and truly, goes off! One of her best ever tour sections and looks.

  10. I’ve wanted a studio version of that Spinning Around mix for years

  11. Yes, had a feeling that they would. At least still due to be airing all the same.
  12. I’m not sure Some Kind of Bliss was a mistake as such. I 100% understand the situation Deconstruction were in because nothing sounded like a single on that album. People maybe didn’t respond to “indie Kylie” but I really doubt they’d have liked dark tortured Kylie more, if Too Far or Limbo were singles.

  13. The debut should have been a rocky yet poppy track a la Republica or Sneaker Pimps, left field but catchy.
    I still think Some Kind of Bliss would've done better with better / gayer artwork.

  14. The studio shots of Kylie in the denim mini dress from the video would have made an excellent cover.
  15. Kylie doing trip-hop ala Sneaker Pimps would’ve been everything, Becoming X is an immaculate album.

    Also, I could see her kicking ass on something similar to the single remix of “Spin Spin Sugar”.

    As a lead, it could’ve been another “Confide In Me” moment.

    …or a major flop, I don’t know what the UK/Oz charts at that time were like, nn.

  16. I don't see 2 Hearts as a mistake. The new album thread cointains pages of users complaining about safe Kylie. When she does not go safe and she risks with a different song, it's called a mistake.
    She tried something different. It wasn't a hit. But she tried, at least.
    Then, she obviously went to safe mode with Wow.
    Stars and Cosmic are still great tracks from X, even if I would have preferred a full orchestra like the one on The Kylie Show
  17. Limbo is Republica on a day off from the studio. It's so them it hurts.

    If she had wanted a second Confide-In-Me-moment-of-reverence, then Too Far would've been the lead.

    So true. I can’t believe how many times some Kylie topics are discussed on loop.
  19. I thought it was simpler than that from recollection. The Manics were so hot at the time, it was obvious that maximum exposure would come from releasing a James Dean Bradfield penned song. So they did.
    I also recollect Chris Evans hammering it on radio play and he made records hits then, Toploader, Texas etc.
