Kylie Minogue: Singles A to Z – S

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 S.

S is for Slow. Following the huge success of Fever there was a lot of pressure on the lead single to the follow up album Body Language and Kylie surprised, but didn’t disappoint, with the exquisite Slow; a minimal electro song that oozes sexy sophistication.

Single facts

    • Slow has the honour of being Kylie’s only UK Number 1 single in which she had a hand in the writing.  See more about Kylie the Songwriter
    • The video was filmed in Barcelona at the Piscina Municipal de Montjuïc which hosted the diving at the Summer Olympics in 1992
    • Slow was given a complete makeover in a remix by Chemical Brothers, turning it into something much more frantic
    • Tricky also completely transformed the song in 2008 when he recorded a throbbing guitar, trip hop version for his album Knowle West Boy which keeps some of Kylie’s vocals

S is perhaps one of the hardest letters to have to pick from and many of the following could easily have been chosen:  Spinning Around, Step Back In Time and Shocked.  There’s a special place in our hearts for Some Kind Of Bliss despite it being lesser known to the wider public.  There’s also buzz tracks Skirt and Sexercise; Christmas track Santa Baby and the recent Stop Me From Falling.

Which track would you choose for S? Tell us @entfocusmusic
