Put Yourself In My Place was the second single from Kylie's fifth album. Following Confide In Me, it saw Kylie continue with her new mature sound - a dreamy ballad that wouldn't sound out of out place on Madonna's Bedtime Stories. It is undoubtedly one of Kylie's most gorgeous moments when you combine the stylish video and sensual, personal feel of the track - I especially love the bridge. It could be argued it was a little ahead of its time and would have been more successful a few years later.
Put yourself in my place is gorgeous, i find it hard to believe it performed so badly at the time in the charts. It must've been down to bad timing as it was released just before christmas so maybe got lost amongst the novelty songs and the more popular chart hits.
At least its top 10 here as its a beautiful song. It probably would've done better had it been released in early 1995 in the post-christmas collapse.

Step Back In Time was released as the second single from Kylie's third album and it's a funky, feel-good disco/pop track that pays homage to 1970s culture. I love the retro vibe of this song and it fits in nicely alongside the Dee-Lite and The B-52s from the same year, which may explain why they switched it with WHIGTD as second single. It's one of Kylie's most free-spirited and high-energy tracks and you can hear more strength in her vocals compared to her 80s hits.

Love At First Sight was released as the third single from Fever, a dance/pop track that lends from the French-house sound that dominated the early 00s. From first listen of the album, it was clear that it had to be a future single and it was released as a soundtrack to summer 2002. It's without doubt one of Kylie's most happy and optimistic tracks and contains some of the best production of her career. I have fond memories tied to this song and it remains evergreen!
• "What Do I Have To Do" is probably my favorite of Kylie's 90's offerings. I've gone back-and-forth over the years between preferring the album version or the "7" Mix" from the video - but in either form, it's such a stunner (much like Kylie herself throughout the video!) • Although several of Kylie's songs could be considered gay anthems, I don't think any fit the bill better than the pop/disco gem that is "Your Disco Needs You." It absolutely leaves you feeling empowered and ready to dance, dance, dance. The fabulous "Casino Mix" was one of the main reasons I sought out the Tour Edition of Light Years. • I'm loving the sight of "Love At First Sight" inside your Top 10! I was first introduced to it in the form of the Ruff & Jam US Mix (since that was the version played on radio and TV here), but I think both equally share that sense of infectious optimism you mentioned.

All The Lovers was the lead single from Kylie's 11th studio album and was her last big hit in the UK. Summer 2010 was a hot one and this playing across the radio made it seem even sunnier. It's another wistful, optimistic track that only Kylie can deliver in such a perfect way - along with one of the best videos of her career. I love the way the verses build to the crescendo of the chorus and wish she could come back this time with some equally as stunning. Amazingly the song almost didn't exist and was a last-minute addition to the project!
I voted for All the lovers in the poll thinking this would be your #1. Pleasant surprise. This was such a glorious pop song and i'm so happy it was successful. I would be so happy to see Kylie get another big chart hit just like this.
I agree about the music video. Love the idea of having a mountain consisting of lovers, all dressed in white portraying the essence of purity.
after so many songs now a Kylie song that disappoints me. All the lovers is the song I rarely or never listen to from the Aphrodite album, it bores me somehow and I think it's a bit overrated. It has this typical Kylie sound like I believe in you and Into the blue, but somehow these are the songs that disappoint me from her
I am not trying to seduce you... Would you like me to seduce you? Is that what you're trying to tell me?

I Should Be So Lucky was Kylie's debut single and first #1 in the UK. Now almost 30 years old, the track stands tall as a late 80s highlight and contains that recognisable SAW bubblegum pop production. It was written in 40 minutes and recorded in an hour because SAW had forgotten Kylie was coming to the studio! It's one of the songs I remember most from my own childhood as it's incredibly catchy, simple and hard to dislike. I love the tone of the verses complete with key change that leads into the anticipation of the bridge ahead of a massive sing-along chorus. Pop at its best!
Aww, i know its so cheesy but i do love I should be so lucky. I love the part where she's in the bathtub and blows the bubbles, her giggles are so cute. Kylie's hair was a mess though. It sounds typically 80s with that drum machine beat and 80s synths but nobody can deny this is one catchy song.

On A Night Like This served as the second single from Kylie's comeback album, and after the sunny disposition of Spinning Around we were faced with moody, sultry dance/pop. As a dance track, it sits up there with the best hits of the year - from the guitar plucks of the intro which lead to a thumping club beat full of energy and urgency as Kylie delivers her usual breathy, sexy vocal. This is THE song that when she performs it live you just can't deny she has a strong voice, especially the lines: "now it's time to make you miiiiiine... on a night like thiiiiissss"
