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.

We’ve reached the letter O.

O is for On A Night Like This. This corker from 2000 was the second single release from album Light Years and well and truly cemented the return of Kylie as a major player in the pop arena.

Single facts

    • The track was originally released in 1999 by Swedish singer Pandora
    • Kylie performed the track at the closing ceremony of the Sydney Olympic Games in 2000, where she also sang Dancing Queen whilst riding a giant flip-flop!
    • The video features actor Rutger Hauer as Kylie’s mobster husband who was neglecting his wife
    • Also in the video, Kylie wore jewellery worth over $2 million which was on loan and meant that she had to have security guards watching her every move
    • Just missing out on the top spot of the UK charts, it did however peak at Number 1 in Australia giving Kylie her sixth chart-topper down under

When it comes to the letter O there are two other minor singles that could’ve been chosen; both from Kylie Christmas.  Firstly, there’s her disco duet with Dannii on 100 Degrees, then there’s her duet with celebrity taxi driver James Corden, on Only You.
