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.
- 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
