Kylie (+ Dannii) Minogue | General Discussion Thread
Dax Diameter posted a topic in JukeboxAs there is no stand alone Kylie thread independent of specific album eras, I felt we should have one where every aspect of Kylie’s career can be discussed from ANY time period: past, present and future. Highlights from albums one thru four: Below is my all time personal favourite Kylie single, where the stars aligned and everything about its release was utter perfection: These are the definitive versions of her first four album releases as they contain absolutely everything (from each respective album era): 01) ”Kylie”: https://www.discogs.com/release/6651409-Kylie-Minogue-Kylie 02) ”Enjoy Yourself”: https://www.discogs.com/release/6623173-Kylie-Minogue-Enjoy-Yourself 03) ”Rhythm of Love”: https://www.discogs.com/release/6651464-Kylie-Rhythm-Of-Love 04) ”Let’s Get To It”: https://www.discogs.com/release/6651514-Kylie-Minogue-Lets-Get-To-It .. When she came back with her fifth album she switched her production team and record label (essentially beginning again from scratch). This was the worlds introduction to the reinvented Kylie: She then went on to explore Indie music (to the sheer horror of the gays) who outside her home country, almost died when she served them this: When she then went on to continue down the same path (on her sixth album “Impossible Princess”), with this production by Welsh rock band Manic Street Preachers, the gays finally revolted and (temporarily) abandoned her for Steps: Nevertheless, she continued to listen to her inner muse and follow her own creative path: After two albums, she and her second record label (Deconstruction), mutually decided to have a parting of ways and after deciding that making money again might be a good idea, she then signed with Parlophone and re-embraced her ‘Pop’ origins on this abandoned Paula Abdul comeback track and it’s parent album (Kylie’s seventh), titled “Light Years”: The gays were suddenly back on board and so was the world (outside America): That wasn’t to last long though when she launched her eighth album with this Cathy Dennis penned S Club 7 and Sophie Ellis-Bextor reject track: However, Kylie then made a strategic error when she decided to take her ninth album in an R&B direction and decided not to use a little demo titled “Toxic” presented to her people by Cathy Dennis as it did not sonically fit the genre profile of what her management advised her was needed for the U.S. market. Instead the demo was presented to another singer you’ve probably heard of and Kylie went with this track that fitted the mood she was going for instead: The parent album “Body Language” did not find the love from the U.S. market it was intended to. Kylie then moved on to a retrospective compilation (“Ultimate Kylie”), which contained these two singles (the first being co-written by Jake Shears, formerly from Scissor Sisters) and the second written by Xenomania (better known for producing some of Girls Aloud and Sugababes finest work). That compilation has since been usurped with another more up to date compilation “Step Back In Time”. Shortly after releasing the above two singles from her 2004 retrospective, Kylie was diagnosed with and took time out to recover from cancer. Since her recovery, Kylie went on to release six further studio albums, single highlights include the following: Following Kylie’s recent successful Sydney “World Pride” appearance: Current whispers are circulating, suggesting that Kylie and Katy Perry have worked together on a track. Before this rumour it was already known that Katy is working on a dance album. Both artists are presently between album cycles and it is as yet unknown if (upon launching), the currently under wraps track will be on one of their albums (or both). They have also each (separately) worked with Greg Kurstin in the past. I can’t quite hear how their respective voices would blend together on a track and always assumed that Kylie and Madonna working together was a more fated collaboration that would occur first. What are your thoughts? Is a collab between Kylie + Katy the duet you never knew you needed or does the very idea leave you cold?
Jake Shears “Last Man Dancing”: June 2nd 2023 Jake Shears returns with his 2nd solo album on June 2nd 2023. Jake was the lead singer of American (mostly gay), pop/ rock group - Scissor Sisters who became better known by pop fans out with their home country of the U.S. Scissor Sisters released 4 studio albums between 2004 to 2012. They broke out of the underground New York, Gay Club Scene. After dabbling in harder edged dance music, they embraced the mainstream pop scene in 2004 - then released their self titled debut album “Scissor Sisters”. Despite being American, their biggest markets were multiple countries across the continent of Europe (where they were embraced and much loved). In the U.S. the Scissor Sisters paved the way for Adam Lambert to later be accepted as a breakthrough LGBTQ+ artist (before Adam himself passed that baton on to Kim Petras - as the doors to mainstream U.S. societal acceptance open ever wider): Scissor Sisters also scored an Australian No. 1 in 2006 with their 2nd album “Ta-Dah”s lead single - “I Don’t Feel Like Dancin” (feat. Elton John who more recently worked with Dua Lipa on her U.K. No.1 collab “Cold Cold Heart”). Scissor Sisters went on to have two further studio albums “Night Work” (2010) and “Magic Hour” (2012), prior to splitting - and Jake (the primary lead singer/ songwriter) going solo. Jake’s debut, self-titled solo album “Jake Shears” was released in 2018, before going on to become a U.K. Top 20 Hit. Jake now returns with his 2nd solo dance album titled “Last Man Dancing”. Jake’s new album will also include a duet feature with Kylie Minogue, titled “Voices”. Though Jake’s track “Devil Came Down The Dance Floor” features session singer Amber Martin on sole lead vocals, Jake still opted to include it on his album as he preferred her vocal take on that particular track (more than his own). Jake and Kylie Minogue are personal friends and both Jake (and his former Scissor Sisters band mate Baby Daddy), wrote the lead single “I Believe In You” from Kylie’s 2004 “Ultimate Kylie” (a Greatest Hits Retrospective). That track has since gone on to be considered (by many), a classic staple of Kylie’s discography. The Kylie song “White Diamond” was also later written by Jake (but remains unreleased in its original dance/ pop form). Kylie later contributed vocals to the Scissor Sisters track “Any Which Way. Jake returned the favor by co-writing the track “Too Much” for Kylie’s “Aphrodite” album. In 2015, Jake and Kylie duetted on the Nervo produced track “The Other Boys”. Jake later went on to become the support act on Kylie’s 2018 “Golden” Tour in support of his self titled debut album. ——————————————————————————————— “Last Man Dancing” Album Track List: 01.

Kylie Minogue- Unreleased Vol. 4I was going to add this to the Kylie masterpost for everyone (if they are genuine), but I think they've been deleted! Recently got the unofficial release, Unreleased Vol. 4! A good portion of the CD is just collecting her recent collaborations ("Really Don't Like U") through much older ("Sometime Samurai"). A few live, some commonly leaked ("Voodoo"). After comparing and sorting, I concluded there was 1 song I did not have whatsoever- "I Think I Love You (Demo)". Sounds like it could be from anytime b/w 2005-2014. I really like it! Great electro-pop! Another of interest was "Music Will Always Love You (Extended Mix)", of which I only had a Fever-era snippet, from an old fan comp here, I believe. Now, this could be the real entire song. Alternatively, 'extended mix'? My musical editing skills aren't professional, but I feel like this could be a fan edit that only utilizes the minute snippet by repeats/edits/other audio manipulation. Thoughts? Someone have the right info? Kylie- Unreleased, Vol. 4 (Sorted)
