Kylie Minogue: Singles A to Z – W

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 W and there’s plenty to choose from.

W is for What Do I Have To Do.  This high energy track from 1991, continued to push Kylie’s sexy aesthetic as she channels many classic movie star looks in the accompanying video.

Single facts

    • What Do I Have To Do was originally planned as the second single from Rhythm of Love but of course that honour then went to Step Back In Time, with this track following as the third
    • The video features Dannii Minogue in a brief cameo.  She’s on the dancefloor and wearing a peroxide blonde bob wig
    • It has the dubious honour of being Kylie’s first single not to chart inside the UK Top 5, peaking just outside at 6
    • In the UK a limited edition 7″ single came with postcards with shots from the video

W was a tough one.  We very nearly picked the murder ballad Where The Wild Roses Grow with Nick Cave for it’s sheer class and randomness.  Then again, Wouldn’t Change A Thing is early Kylie at her best (love the Espagna mix too!).  Much overlooked on Kylie’s tours but all bangers; Word Is Out, Where Is The Feeling? and What Kind Of Fool (Heard All That Before).  There’s the cutesy wow-wow-wow Wow and the indie film, Jack & Diane, promo track Whistle with Icelandic band múm.

We know this one will split the vote, so which would you choose for W? Tell us @entfocusmusic
