All of Kylie’s more beautiful songs on one playlist!
Kylie may be best known for her pop/dance anthems that now cover over thirty years, but she has also written and recorded many down tempo numbers, ballads and duets. Here for the first time we bring them all together for a more easy listening Kylie experience, or perhaps a time for love and tenderness…?
Even with her debut album “Kylie” (1988) there was a ballad, “I’ll Still Be Loving You” what was also used as the B side for the UK single “The Locomotion”. From “Enjoy Yourself” (1989) there comes the amazing “Tell Tale Signs”, “Heaven And Earth” and her number one hit “Tears On My Pillow”.
While “Rhythm Of Love” (1990) was all about a more mature dance/pop, “Let’s Get To It” (1991) restored some order and gave us the smash hit duet “If You Were With Me Now” with American soul singer Keith Washington, together with the heartfelt guitar ballad “No World Without You”.
Kylie moved on in 1994 to deconstruction Records and released one of her finest long players of all that included the almighty power ballad “Put Yourself In My Place” and the epic “Dangerous Game”. It seemed that when she joined Parlophone Records in 1999 that it was all about disco-pop, but the ballads kept coming with some outstanding and eye-watering numbers including “Bittersweet Goodbye”, “Paper Dolls” and the gorgeous “Ocean Blue”.
“Body Language” (2003) offered us another outstanding epic with vocals to match with the sumptuous “Loving Days” and with the release of her double sided anthology “Ultimate Kylie” the following year we got “I Believe In You” both as an electro-pop chart smash and as a piano ballad.
“X” in 2007 featured many personal tracks to Kylie following her recovery from breast cancer two years earlier and “No More Rain” offered a down-tempo pop epic that suited the ever changing music world. Another outstanding track “Flower” was recorded at the same time, although this was kept back from the album and released of its own accord later on.
Once again, “Aphrodite” (2010) was all about class pop/dance and proved a massive hit the world over, but two years later “The Abbey Road Sessions” gave us a new twist on some classic Kylie hits with the backing of a choir and full orchestra. It was here that “Flower” fully bloomed and radiated Kylie’s superb voice for all to hear.
“Kiss Me Once” (2014) offered us another star duet, this time with Latin star Enrique Iglesias and the power vocal number “Beautiful” and just a year later Kylie recorded Yazoo’s 1982 hit “Only You” with TV star and actor James Cordon for her “Kylie Christmas” album.
And so with “Golden” (2018) we get yet more softer, more mellow tunes with the “Put Yourself In my Place”-esque “Sincerely Yours” together with the sensational “Lost Without You” and another duet, this time with Jack Savoretti and the “Music’s Too Sad Without You”. It certainly is not Lady Miss M!
