Problem is it's 5 % killer vs. 95 % filler.
I am very much the other way around on this. That's why I love these rates, we all rightfully have our own opinions, even if we don't always agree.
Not sad to see this one go. I’ve appreciated it more over time but never been a fave. 6
The PWL songs are a bit frustrating because if she didn't push her vocals so damn hard and the production was stripped down a bit, they would be good. Most of them really sound like commercial jingles.
I don't care what anyone says, I love 'I Miss You' and I gave it an 8. I know the chorus isn't the best but I always sing along to it and I think the verses are some of the best on the parent album. The subject of the lyrics is always something that resonates with me.
The quite like the verses of I Miss You but it’s like SAW just gave up on the chorus.
"I Miss You" isn't bad song. Actually, it's cute, just one of the most obvious filler tracks on her albums and that definitely meant an early exit for it. It's not even my least favourite from the debut, but it's a good elimination.
Literally the last four tracks from "Kylie" + "The Loco-Motion" are some of her weakest PWL moments and all of them leaving early would be great.
There's probably less than 20 PWL songs that deserve to be in the top half of this rate
EDIT: Yes I was correct there's 18!
Je Ne Sais Pas Pourquoi

What Kind of Fool
Where In the World?
This Got To Be Certain erasure though.
I agree with these (the ones in bold are my faves from that era and one of them is my 11). The rest? Not so much.
And where's "I Should Be So Lucky"? It's definitely among my top 10 of the PWL years.
No way did I forget to include Got to Be Certain! Yes you are correct it SHOULD be there
I find I Should Be So Lucky grating to be honest, and SHOCKED is one of her BEST PWL tracks, the DNA single mix is SO much better, and that's what my rating is based off
That's odd, considering you love the PWL years. Also, I find "Word Is Out" and "Too Much of a Good Thing" one of her best from that period and both deserve to reach the top half, too. They were very underrated in the previous rate.
One Boy Girl is her best PWL song, but y'all ain't ready for that conversation.
Time for a rest from the PWL tracks, I Feel For You, After Dark, I Was Gonna Cancel, Whistle and Cosmic can all go in the next few eliminations
Oh, I forgot about that one! Probably my favourite song from "Rhythm of Love".
Oh and why am I not surprised in the least that @Sprockrooster gave Heaven and Earth a 10?
There's a PWL single that should go before anything else, and it's a duet, and no, it's not Especially for You.
The first single is leaving now...
If You Were With Me Now 4.95
Highest Score: 10 x 3 @WhatKindOfKylie?, @Hudweiser, @Gnuh Gnuh
Lowest Score: 0 x 4 @aux, @Mirwais Ahmadzaï, @KingBruno, @Hurricane Drunk
@Hudweiser - 10 My favourite Kylie duet; just a straightforward pop ballad with a perfect middle eight. What happened to Keith Washington though?
@nanafan - 9 Strong ballad moment and worthy Top 5 entry. Great orchestration on this.
@M24 - 8.5 Wonderful duet.
@Maki - 7.5 I'm here for a sappy ballad, but this one doesn't reach its full potential. Don't really know how to feel about the featured singer, either. Still, it's mature for Kylie at the time, she sounds gorgeous and I find the song quite lovely overall.
@Andsov - 6.5 Soppy and Disney-like, but quite nice.
@CasperFan - 6.5 Kylie sounds great and has never looked more beautiful in the video.
@MrJames - 4 Kylie going all Mariah on us.
@mrdonut - 3 Absolute drivel
@Untouchable Ace - 0.5 I get to bad mouth songs that sound like karaoke, yay.
Really? REALLY? The fuck is wrong with y'all?
