PLAYLIST: Kylie Minogue – The B Sides

Let’s bring all of Kylie’s ‘lost’ B sides together on one album for the first time!

Over the past thirty plus years, Kylie has released over seventy singles worldwide and many of them contain B sides and additional songs, not featured on any studio album of the time. So here’s a ‘greatest hits’ of all those B sides! All those tracks you love to hear and play but have to dig out each individual single to do so. Well, fear no longer. Here they are all here under one playlist from the beginning to the present day!

So what’s your favourite Kylie B side from the PWL era? “Made In Heaven”? “Just Wanna Love You”? “Kylie’s Smiley Mix”? “We Know The Meaning Of Love”? “Say The Word, I’ll Be There”? “Do You Dare?” “Closer”? They’re all here! Or maybe you’re an instrumental B sider?!

When Kylie moved to deConstruction in 1993, the B sides continued with “Nothing Can Stop Us”, “If You Don’t Love Me”, “Tears” and “Love Takes Over Me”. But with the dawn of the twentieth century and Kylie’s move to Parlophone, the B sides got more prolific! Sometimes TWO to a single! Which meant more collecting!

How about the 60’s-ish “Cover Me With Kisses”, or the gorgeous “Ocean Blue”, or the sublime “Good Life” from the “Light Years” era? For the “Fever” era, they got funkier and ever more brilliant. “Boy”, “Rendezvous At Sunset”, “Baby” and “Tightrope” to name a few. This continued into the “Body Language” period with “Soul On Fire”, “Almost A Lover” and “City Games”, the intended title track of the original album that eventually became “Body Language”.

For Kylie’s 2004 “Ultimate Kylie” hits package, she released two singles that contained perhaps two of her best B sides with the funky “Beats Per Minute” and the lush “Made Of Glass”. And we’ve included them both here! The “X” years saw a plethora of extra tracks that had been recorded for the album but never made the final cut. These include the fan favourite “Cherry Bomb”, “King Or Queen”, “Carried Away” and “Do It Again” to name just a couple.

Aphrodite” kicked off with the sensational “All The Lovers” that included the track “Go Hard Or Go Home” and for the fourth single, “Put Your Hands Up”, another new, unreleased track “Silence” was tacked on as a bonus! The “Kiss Me Once” period was shamelessly brief with just two singles released from the badly marketed album. The lead single, the incredible “Into The Blue”, featured the track “Sparks” on one of the last Kylie singles to be released on CD.

With the digital age now depriving us of physical single releases, the day of the B side or the additional track is sadly gone. We are just left with album one track releases. The “Golden” era proves this, save for a few remixed issues. So save this Kylie B side playlist and relive the days of the great and the good, the songs that didn’t quite make the albums but we are grateful exist and were published!

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
