This month sees Kylie Minogue take to the stage in the Glastonbury Legends slot and also the release of her latest hits package Step Back In Time: The Definitive Collection. To celebrate we will be picking our A to Z of Kylie singles each day this month as well as asking you to vote for your favourite Kylie album – here.
Today is the letter L.
L is for Love At First Sight. The third single from Kylie’s album Fever is a vibrant, uplifting slice of pop that still sounds fresh today.
- This single is one of two Kylie songs that shares its name with another Kylie song, in this case from her debut album, Kylie. The other is her Giorgio Moroder collab Right Here, Right Now which is also the name of an album track on Let’s Get To It
- The track gave Kylie her tenth Number 2 single on the UK’s Official Chart in June 2002, held off the top spot by Elvis vs JXL’s A Little Less Conversation
- For the US release, the track got a Ruff & Jam remix and gave Kylie her third highest Billboard 100 chart placing when it peaked at Number 23
- British singer/songwriter Tom Walker recently surprised Kylie when they appeared on a Radio 2 show together where he played an acoustic version of the track
There’s another major Kylie single starting with L and that’s the song that started her career – Locomotion. Released in her native Australia in July 1987, it went on to become the biggest-selling single of the decade there and was a Number 2 in the UK the summer after. For Italian fans there’s also her duet with Laura Pausini on Limpido which peaked at Number 1 in Italy in 2013. Finally, Kylie made an appearance on Coldplay’s Lhuna, a charity release for World Aids Day in 2008.
