Here comes the second group!
OUT OF TOP 40:
ALBUM: LIGHT YEARS | YEAR: 2000
This song marks Kylie's comeback to the mainstream dance/pop scene and the accompanying video features the famous golden hotpants. The only reason I didn't include it in the Top 40 is that I've become a bit bored of it through the years. A great song nonetheless. [LISTEN]
#35: I'll Still Be Loving You
ALBUM: KYLIE | YEAR: 1988
Being hidden among classics like 'I Should Be So Lucky', 'I'll Still Be Loving You' certainly isn't the first thing that would grab the attention of the casual listener on Kylie's debut record. It was the same with me during the first listens of the album. However, whenever my iPod picked this track for me and I could listen to it out of the context of the album, I could really appreciate the song and I realised how great it is. It has slowly become my favourite on Miss Minogue's 'Kylie' album, it's a real hidden gem.
#34: Automatic Love
ALBUM: KYLIE MINOGUE | YEAR: 1994
Among all of her albums, Kylie's self-titled one from 1994 is the one that showcases her vocal abilities the best. Though the album in its entirely might not be her finest because of some dull and far too long songs, it surely has it's moments. 'Automatic Love' is one of them, it's a perfect mid-tempo love song full of emotions that Kylie brings perfectly in this one.
#33: Wouldn't Change A Thing
ALBUM: ENJOY YOURSELF | YEAR: 1989
The first single on the list. 'Wouldn't Change A Thing' is an effortless, sugary, feel-good PWL pop song that somehow, despite a bit of cheesiness, still becomes irresistible. I can't help loving it.
#32: Cowboy Style
ALBUM: IMPOSSIBLE PRINCESS | YEAR: 1997
This song was the 4th single from Kylie's underappreciated 'Impossible Princess' album, but unfortunately, in Australia only. 'Cowboy Style' has many catchy hooks and presents a more mature and different sound of Kylie. Great one.
#31: Somewhere Over The Rainbow
ALBUM: SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW - SINGLE / SHOWGIRL HOMECOMING LIVE | YEAR: 2005 / 2007
Kylie's live version of 'Somewhere Over The Rainbow' was released as a promotional and digital only single during the time of her cancer treatment. This rendition of the Wizard of Oz classic means a lot to me, maybe because of those things that happened with Kylie at the time of this release. After her recovery, she performed the song on tour again, and I gotta admit that the latter version, available on her 'Showgirl Homecoming Live' CD, turned out even better than the first one. Flawless vocal performance.
I'm gonna post the next five tomorrow morning!
