I'm glad @Mvnl asked about different mixes because it reminded me that I prefer the International version, but forgot to specify. Still the song underneath is the same and that's the main reason I love it.

One Day In Your Life was my 11 in @Sprockrooster's 2020 Anastacia rate and here's what I wrote about it in slightly edited form - 'One Day In Your Life' is Anastacia talking to the person who turned away from her love, after she has recovered from this pain, wondering if they will regret it in the future. It's the bittersweet quality in the lyrics of 'One Day In Your Life', and the slight air of melancholy I hear in the melody, whilst still being a great dance track, that makes it my favourite Anastacia song.
Noooo, I figured someone else would vote for the regular version of "Nothing In This World". Still play this remix at least once a week.

This is still my Mom's favorite Selegend song. That or "Who Says" but no one but us seem to like that one, so we will just say it's "Naturally".

When I came back to my city, one of the first things I remember doing is watching TV União, which worked as the local MTV for us. There was a show called Top + where the 10 most voted songs would be played in it. There were three songs that were frequently played and I name them my favorite songs ever when I was 7: Me Against the Music (which I couldn't include on my top because of the artist rule, and nowadays me picked two other songs for Britney), my 9-pointer (which I will be shocked if I am the only voter), and this.

Don't ask me why, but I have a crystal clear memory of the music video? I forget a lot of crucial details in my life but I've never forgotten Jessica in the elevator, the black outfit, the way she moved her hips, her white + jeans look among mirrors, the bomb exploding those mirrors while she is singing a high note, the thieves dancing along with her on the rooftop........................ it was truly impactful!!!!

Delta Goodrem was an essential part of my 00s. While I’d say Mistaken Identity is the better album overall, I had to go with something from her “classic” era Innocent Eyes and Not Me, Not I has always been a big favourite. Delta and piano ballads are the best combination!

Happy to see Believe Again here as well! That probably would have been my second choice.

I've been delaying this result simply because I wanted to write something and commend Kelly for coming out of the gates solo with a rather heavy subject but also I didn't want this write-up to be a total downer, so I had to do some marinating over what this song means to me. I decided to simply do some recounting instead of getting all in my feelings: all I was ever aware of in 2002 was "Dilemma" (my little 6 y.o. self found it endlessly cute). It must have been a few years later, likely in the middle of the Sasha Fierce era when I was dead set on discovering anything the pop music world had to offer including Kelly Rowland's singles on YT, that I came across "Stole". It was one of those rare moments when everything about a song clicks right away. First of all, I could grasp that she was telling a story here. And since I didn't even know English, let alone the correct grammar, I was soon perusing amateur translations to find out what she was singing about and memorising it in my mind to match the words to their meaning while endlessly replaying any YT upload that hasn't been struck by the copyright yet.
It's not a song I play often these days but it has not aged a day, can't believe it turns 20 in just 5 months.
