• After becoming a Kylie fan during the Fever
era, I remember being totally shocked and horrified when I logged onto Kylie's official website, heard "Slow" playing, and discovered that it was the lead single from her next project! I was expecting Fever Part 2
/more brilliant dance-pop gems, but "Slow" dared to venture into this minimalist, eletropop territory. Over time, it grew on me in a VERY big way, and now stands as one of my favorite Kylie tracks. Like I've been saying a lot lately, I'd rank it in a very similar spot! It's so damn sexy - and I had no idea it was her self-proclaimed favorite!
• Massively pleased to see "Please Stay" this high
It's tricky to put into words exactly why it impacts me as much as it does, but something about the combination of a strummed guitar, dance beats, and its incredibly infectious hook just sends me to heaven. The lyrics are a bit sad, almost desperate, as she pleads for her love interest to savor what could be their last night together...but the upbeat pace of the music adds this sense of hope, of confidence that he will indeed decide to stay. That more positive tone is mirrored in the video (the last couple minutes of which always make me smile, especially the pool table dance routine!)
