    Timebomb and On a night like this are both songs that grew on me over time.

    That's great! Personally, I think that "Timebomb" was quite instant but sometimes one really needs some time to make a song shine! Glad you like both entries.

    I'm glad we can agree on OANLT - "Timebomb" is very instant, catchy and a bit basic (I can totally understand why it's a bit underwhelming for some fans) but it just makes me dance. Love it.

    "Timebomb" hooks you right away with that insanely-infectious production, and the entire track is such a fun ride! Incredibly effective use of those cute little "woo"s throughout the chorus (similar to "Raining Glitter" years later). Like you said, it makes NO sense that this was excluded from The Best Of (leaving that compilation without ANY new tracks). If they could squeeze "Better Than Today" onto the Japanese edition, clearly there was space for "Timebomb" on the standard international version SMH.
    "On A Night Like This" is another excellent pick! I ranked it similarly high on a Kylie countdown I did a while back. The whole track has such an epic, anthemic feel - and magical indeed!
    Personally, I think that "The Abbey Road Sessions" are great to accompany a fancy dinner, haha. At least, I like to put it on when I really invested some energy and time to come up with something extra-ordinary haha. - So I somehow get what you said...it's a special album for special occasions

    Oh, tbh, I haven't noticed the similarities in "Raining Glitter" and "Timebomb" - That's interesting! - "Better Than Today" That single killed a "meant-to-be-perfect" era :(

    Glad we agree on OANLT.

    #6: "Dancing" (2018)

    "Dancing" was released as the lead single of Kylie's latest record "Golden" just more than a year ago but it already secured a special place in my heart. At first, I thought that the single was a bit underwhelming as a comeback single but it has grown on me very fast. Her sound (mixing country with pop) was kinda refreshing and showed a different side of the Pop Goddess. The arrangement stays light and dreamy and serves a euphoric vibe celebrating life which - in my opinion - is why this single will become a future classic! The light and playful arrangement contradicts the thoughtful and meaningful lyrics in which Kylie doesn't face any fear when it's time to pass away. In fact, Kylie herself confirmed that the song is indeed about death. I absolutely love this meaning! Kylie has come so far! Up and Downs, breast cancer, failed relationships, monster hits and flop singles, her unfulfilled desire to become a mother but she always stays positive and she has no regrets! When it's time to leave this world, she wants to go out dancing! - Brilliant songwriting! Tbh, I'm quite disappointed by myself that I couldn't place this amazing track inside my Top 5!

    #5: "Your Disco Needs You" (2001)

    It seems that we will have to go back to to Kylie's album Light Years for a while. "Your Disco Needs You" is the epitome of Kylie. It's euphoric, anthemic, instant, catchy, fun, a bit camp and totally full of glitter and happiness. I was so glad that it got released as an official single in Germany. The song is pop perfection, from its stunning intro (omg the strings and brasses, the male choir!) and that "You are useless at Scrabble" line is one of my favourite ones in pop music ever! WHAT A F*CKING ICON! - Damn, I love this track so much but honestly, it was so difficult to rank my Top 5! - Anyway, (re-)watch the song's music video and enjoy some Kylie bliss! <3

    Same here. I can live without Flower, but In My Eyes is one of my favorite Kylie songs. I used it for my dance lessons at the time. Love it!

    I wouldn't call "Flower" a Kylie essential but it shows a different side of Kylie and it's so intimate and personal. What a tender ballad.
    I'm glad we agree on "In My Eyes", "On A Night Like This" and "Dancing", though ;)

    But "Your Disco Needs You" is an anthem. How can a Kylie fan not love this? - It's an anthem of a whole generation of LGTBQ+

    I couldn't predict 'Your Disco' here, because your music taste is opposite to me. It's my second favourite Kylie's song after "Tears On Pillow". Sadly there is no place for her classic retro hits, but you included "Flower" and "Your Disco" in top 10, so possibly I will see other (third and last) personal favourite from 21st century.

    Prediction : "Can't Get Out of My Head" at # 1
    My celebrity crushes : Monika Sedziuviene, Kristina Ivanova (YVA).

    Dreamer, you must to visit Lithuania and see/listen a live concert of your YVA strawberries.

    Dancing would be veeeeeery far from my top 10, maybe in my flop 10 of singles, or well I am kinda sure about that. ^^ But I like the remix so I listen to that one, so much better without those country elements.

    Your disco needs you is sweet. But somehow I liked it more back then.
    I am not trying to seduce you... Would you like me to seduce you? Is that what you're trying to tell me?

    "Your Disco Needs You" is awesome, campy, catchy, fun (it would made my top 20 for sure).
    Whereas I just not really into "Dancing" even after some time passed, the only thing I truly liked about it was the emerald green backdrop in the music video.

    Brilliant! That album's the perfect soundtrack for occasions like a posh dinner party.

    Phew, relieved to hear you're not crazy about "Better Than Today" either.

    Quote Originally Posted by Mainshow View Post

    It was back in 2011, so my list would look somewhat different now (especially since she's dropped some incredibly enjoyable material since then), but my Top 10 at the time:

    01. "Please Stay"
    02. "Your Disco Needs You"
    03. "What Do I Have To Do"
    04. "Spinning Around"
    05. "On A Night Like This"
    06. "Shocked (DNA Mix)"
    07. "Confide In Me"
    08. "Love At First Sight"
    09. "Got To Be Certain"
    10. "Tightrope"

    I'd probably replace "Tightrope" with "The One" (which I had at No. 11) or "All The Lovers" (No. 14), and bump LAFS up a little. I do love Light Years, but having it occupy 4 of my Top 5 was a bit much/imbalanced in retrospect, since I consider Fever my favorite album of hers overall. Thanks for asking!

    • It seemed like Golden got a bad rap around UKMIX, with a lot of users quick to dismiss/deride the country influence, but I found it really satisfying and packed with heavenly country-pop fusions! Other popstars' recent dabbling in more rock and country-tinged material hasn't worked quite as well for me, but Golden hit me as hard as Kylie's material often has in the past, while still sounding different from anything that she'd tried before. It became my most-played album of 2018 by a sizable margin. The "Dancing" lyrics feel pretty relevant at this point in my life (not that I'm close to death or anything but 30 is kind of a big milestone that makes you reflect on where you've been and where you're headed).
    • Absolutely THRILLED to see "Your Disco..." inside your Top 5! Although several of Kylie's songs could arguably be considered "gay anthems," I don't think any of them fit the bill better than this disco/pop gem. It does such a brilliant job of leaving you feeling empowered and ready to dance, dance, dance (through all of this...) The fabulous "Casino Radio Mix" was one of the main reasons I sought out the UK Tour Edition of Light Years.
