Kylie Minogue

I'm still hoping for a medley of all of her lead singles. Something like:

In my imagination
There is no complication
I dream about you all the time

I should be so lucky
Lucky, lucky, lucky
I should be so lucky in love
I should be so lucky
I, I, I, I, I, I, I, I, I, I

Hand on your heart, hand on your heart
Hand on your heart, hand on your heart
Oh, look me in the eye
And tell me we are really through

Put your hand on your heart
And tell me it's all over
I won't believe it 'til you
Put your hand on your heart
And tell me that we're through, ooh, oh

Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

Our love wasn't perfect, I know
I think I know the score
If you say you love me, oh boy
I can't ask for more
I'll come if you should call

I'll forgive and forget
If you say you'll never go
'Cause it's true what they say
It's better the devil you know

Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

Ooh, yeah
Word is out over town

I stand in the distance
I view from afar
Should I offer some assistance?
Should it matter who you are?

Confide in me
Confide in me

Stick or twist, the choice is yours
Hit or miss, what's mine is yours

'Cause everyday is all there is
In my some kind of bliss

Spinning around, spinning around

Baby, baby, baby
You know you like it like this
Oh, baby, baby, baby
You know you like it like this
Oh, baby, baby, baby

I'm spinning around, move out of my way
I know you're feeling me 'cause you like it like this
I'm breaking it down (I'm not the same)
I'm not the same (I know you feel me)
I know you're feeling me 'cause you like it like this

La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la

There's a dark secret in me
Don't leave me left in your heart
Set me free
Feel the need in me
Set me free
Stay forever and ever, and ever, and ever

La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la

I just can't get you out of my head
Boy, your loving is all I think about
I just can't get you out of my head
Boy, it's more than I dare to think about

Knew you'd be here tonight
So I put my best dress on, boy I was so right
Our eyes connected
Now nothing's how it used to be, no second guesses

Slow down and dance with me, yeah, slow
Skip a beat and move with my body, yeah, slow
Come on and dance with me, yeah, slow
Skip a beat and move with my body, yeah, slow

Oh, oh, oh, don't let go
Oh, oh, oh, don't let go

Yo oh oh oh
Yo oh oh oh

When I got my back up against the wall
Don't need no one to rescue me
Because I ain't waiting up for no miracle
Yeah, tonight I'm running free

Into the blue
Into the blue
With nothing to lose
Into the blue

Can't stand still
I won't slow down

When I go out, I wanna go out dancing
Ah ah ah ah, ah ah ah ah
When I go out, I wanna go out dancing
Ah ah ah ah, ah ah ah ah
I wanna go out dancing

Say something, say something

Tell me how you're feeling

And then "Padam Padam" in full.
If she was a troll she’d do Padam Padam in full three times with a bit of CGYOOMH.
 
Surprised On A Night Like This wasn't in the top 10 too.

I thought the same but I wonder if radio switched to "Kids" quite quickly at the time (only a month of difference between their release) and also "On a Night Like This" probably doesn't get much love from those stations that replay the oldies (crumbled into dust when I typed that) from 20-25 years ago for being a bit heavier dance and it probably doesn't get much play from the equivalent dance stations for being too pop.

That said, I'd put money on it being #11 on that airplay list.
 
Speaking of Kids, it's funny how the release of that single was a Robbie one in all but name. The album version from Sing When Your Winning being used plus all B-sides on both CD singles, were Robbie only tracks. I guess it was because it was his label that handled the single release, but shame it was nothing Kylie related for her fans too. Aside Kids itself obvously.
 
I think it would have been nicer to have a Kylie CD and a Robbie CD where each artist had their own b-side and/or remix and brand aesthetic on the artwork but I suspect the Official Charts Company would have split the sales. But also, from EMI's point of view, Robbie was a superstar, Kylie wasn't one (again... yet) and Robbie had regular massive single sales under his belt over the previous few years - "Rock DJ" sold 199,000 in its first week compared to "Spinning Around" on 82,000 and "On A Night Like This" with 51,000. Kylie's sales weren't particularly stellar until that single in 2001. Making it a Robbie lead single makes sense from a mid-2000 perspective.

Didn't think of that, guess that was perhaps the main reason. May have peaked lower than #2 if they had done.
 
This might be a controversial opinion and for the record I absolutely adore Steve Anderson, but I really wish Kylie would perform a live version of Love at First Sight that was closer to the studio mix. I get that for such an overplayed song it needed updating for certain tours but most versions we've had over the years all feel a bit too thin and frantic for such a singalong anthem.

At Glastonbury you can see a lot of the crowd don't even realise what song she was doing until the chorus. Even just play the studio instrumental - that guitar riff and the drums are an eargasm and still sound fresh to this day it's criminal not to capture that properly!

I agree 100% about Love At First Sight, the new live versions of it sound so frantic and hectic, bring back the original instrumental

...I'm sorry, you're telling me people listen to this intro and don't know which song she's singing?

I'm telling you exactly that. Even the diehards at the front barely move?!

Granted it was absolutely sweltering that day in the crowd but still took a while for the masses to catch on and bop.

Now we said it! The synth/guitar from the album version is so much of what defines the song for me. I’m still bitter that the US radio mix stripped it. If it’s even present in the live mixes I’ve listened to in recent years, it’s way too low in the mix.
