This week sees the release of the eagerly anticipated new album ‘Kiss Me Once’ from pop royalty Ms Kylie Minogue. What more of an excuse do we need to have our very own Kylie week here at EF.
We’ll kick things off by revealing what you have chosen as you favourite Kylie videos. We had hundreds of votes and today we’ll give you the 5 videos that landed in the bottom half of the top 10. At there’s two videos tied in 10th place:
10. Love At First Sight

Interesting Fact: The Director of the video was actually a bit of a popstar himself back in 1993 as Stakka Bo having a UK top 20 hit with ‘Here We Go’. He’s since directed music videos for Madonna, Robyn, Robbie Williams and more as well as doing this video for Kylie.
10. Put Yourself In My Place
Director: Kier McFarlane
UK Chart peak: 11

Director: Alex Large & Liane Sommers
UK Chart peak: 12

7. Better The Devil You Know
Director: Paul Goldman

Interesting Fact: This track and its video were unleashed to an unsuspecting public as part of Kylie’s K25 celebrations in 2012. It was shot in Soho without warning the onlookers – can you imagine if Kylie suddenly stepped out in front of you!
