^ yeah, I love that song. it's mesmerizing.

Just love her
It's so interesting to me how Kylie has such a storied career and is basically a living legend like Madonna et al but she's barely a blip on the radar in America. And then the interviewer sealed it at the end with "What's the next incarnation?" Her lack of relevance in the US is so unfair because she really has evolved a lot, done a lot of good music and is probably the sweetest pop star on the planet.
Also I was just listening to this after the reporter said that Michael's darkness rubbed off on her or whatever.
^ love that one, it's one of my faves.
Kylie isn't a bitch, or offensive. Maybe that's why she's not loved in America.
^ I'd agree with that. Kylie is massive all over Australia, Europe and Asia (the UK treat her like a GOD-ess). America needs to ask itself why their left Kylie-less. It's just so hard to compete with that Bieber kid.
Kylie's been around for 25+ years and she never has been massively successful in the US though - she was regarded as a one-hit wonder until "Can't Get You Out of My Head" managed to infiltrate America, and then after that she went right back to being viewed as irrelevant. In her case it's not situation where she used to be massively popular here and isn't anymore in favor of newer, younger artists - she just never WAS.
You know, not to sound patronising but I can't tell you the amount of times when I lived in the UK and an American would hear, say the "Bristol Sound" or a generally British/Euro dance sound, and would say "we never hear music like this in the US". I think America is just so US-centric when it comes to the music styles they prefer. I just wonder why?
Love At First Sight, Come Into My World and In Your Eyes were always on the radio as I remember it when a Fever came out. Fever was a great success here, anyway the bottom line is she doesn't get any promo here. We can only enjoy what we are exposed to.
Can't Get You Out of My Head did become a hit here, and it came out of nowhere because Kylie hadn't released music here since 1988 or so after Enjoy Yourself flopped. But as soon as CGYOOMH ran its course, that was it. Love at First Sight got a bit of play but I wouldn't call it a bonafide hit, and Come into My World and Slow barely even made the charts at all (both peaked at #91). It was all very light switch - one second it's like "Yay! We like this one Kylie song!!" and then the U.S. was like "okay bye" again.
That being said the modern adult contemporary station in my area plays a couple of her songs sometimes. They really like playing the version of Taio Cruz's "Higher" that has her on it, and the first time I heard them play "All the Lovers" I was floored but it was amazing.
^ It's just odd is all. The US market is obviously THE market that any artist wants to break because the commercial viability is most prevalent there. You know the old saying "make it there and you can make it anywhere". Apparently not.
and CupidBoy, no disrespect but to say "we can only enjoy what we're exposed to" is not the modern day way of thinking of music. Thanks to the early days of Napster and all the uploaded music advances that came after it a revolution started. The consumer took control of what the RCAA and others "gave" to us. Now we have the power to choose. It' so irrelevant what we are subjected to by the way of "charts" etc today. Thanks to the internet we have the freedom to explore and pick and chose what our individual sound is and what (if ever) we'll support and buy. By the internet's very nature and to counter your argument we are "exposed" to everything. Marketing by a certain label is a bygone era. WE now dictate to THEM what works and what doesn't.
Well I choose to listen to her, don't care that she's not the it girl here. I mean she did have her moment, and people are fickle. Plus she's 45 now and people like what's new and young.
....hmmm, me thinks your not having a good day.
I'll add more later.
I'm having a great day, I'm just awake.
I can't figure out why she doesn't have success here either, all I can think is she has no exposure. I have always shared her with people though, and they do think she's cool when they see her. I even did my music final about her in college. Only one person in the entire class knew who she was, but the reaction was positive.
Cool. I do the same for Madonna.
Tell me something, Jason. If you could get something that represented something special to you directly from Kylie...what would it be?
ps - watch out what you wish for.
Yeah, I took a World Music class and the teacher was a cool hippie guy so for the final we had to give a presentation and write a 10 page essay on a topic relating to music from around the world and our own personal interests in relations with what we learned in class. So I talked about Kylie's career and evolution as an artist and her influence in music. I edited videos together to show her different styles throughout the years from the 80s until now. I got an A in that class, it was fun.
One thing... I've never thought about that. What I wish I could do is have a conversation with her, ask her about stuff, maybe get some advice and wisdom. Also I wish I could get a picture with her.
Well if I could get something, maybe a pair used undies from one of her sexy male dancers. :p
Says the Madonna fan. :rotflmao:
^ WOW! A 10 page essay on the evolution of Kylie's career. Listen up people's. That's called a hard-core fan...a knowledgeable hard-core fan.
I guess from now on if i have any questions about why, say, she decided to add 'Glad To Be Alive' to the Locomotion single release you might know?
I'm kidding. It was the first single record I ever bought. I was like, 12. I'll give you a pass and blame it on Stock, Aitken and Waterman.
I have that single on vinyl as well. :D
Let's go through all successful recording artists in history that have tracks that might fall under that banner?
buffxqi, give me two examples of songs from Kylie that you consider not insipid and then let's go from there. If, on the other hand, you don't like her music wholeheartedly just because you've always felt that way then what are you doing here?
"Ima gonna tell them Kylie fans that she's shit!".
Oh Fuck off.
He's just trolling me, best to ignore.
Kiss Me Once tour dates
Frankie Grande meets Kylie:
I've never seen this before, so cute
Happy Birthday Confide In Me!
Even her record company knows her worth has greatly diminished that they've lowered her upcoming reissues significantly.
Kylie's bum is perfect, not too big, firm, no cellulite, sexy as all fuck.
Kylie Minogue and Fernando Garibay joined forces to create the short film “Sleepwalker” featuring their recent collaborations. The film was shown throughout Kylie’s Kiss Me Once Tour in the UK and Europe in fall 2014, which continues in Australia in March 2015.
