Some of my absolute favourites are listed so i'm happy about that at least. <3Thriller wrote:Good idea! I've added one. Not guaranteeing that all of those songs will even be in the top 40 though.JakeP wrote:Looking forward to this as i do love a bit of Kylie.
No poll to predict the #1?
Interesting theory, but I feel like 2000 was the perfect time for her to come back with Spinning Around as that summer played host to many disco-tinged hits like Don't Call Me Baby, Groovejet and Lady (Hear Me Tonight) so it fit the sound. Although I do think if she'd released a typical dance/pop album in 1997 she'd have not experienced her wilderness years - although she perhaps had to in order to get it so right for Light Years and subsequently Fever.JakeP wrote:Kylie really missed a trick in 1997 as this was when dance/pop was popular and a song Spinning around could've been so much successful in 1997.
I guess her 94-98 era was just a natural progression for an artist who was in her mid 20s and had spent most of her career as a SAW pop puppet. She definitely needed it to show that she was an artist who had longevity and creativity; so many of the tracks from that era are firm fan favourites now and Confide In Me reaching #2 showed that there was an appetite for an alternative Kylie. Her 2000 reinvention combined her new maturity with her pop roots perfectly.heppolo wrote:I suppose that Kylie wanted to be liked not only by the general public but by the critics as well.
When if not in the 90s she could have tried to get more experimental without completely falling off the radar.
However, it might have been a move towards the album-seller orientation back in the day when Alanis Morissette and Bjork were selling a lot
