Day 1 of my week with Kylie and to kick us off its the fabulous Spinning Around.
Spinning Around was released in 2000. It was the lead single from her seventh album Light Years released the same year.
This song is very disco-pop and was a bit of a comeback for Kylie. Not so much the song itself, but those gold hotpants had a lot to do with the attention it got!
Check out this video to see for yourself. I dare you not to have bottom envy if you are female. Just perfect - not a hint of cellulite. Even if my derriere was this size, it would not be this perfect in close up!! Those hot pants became stars in their own right!!
The video sees Kylie dancing in a disco, spinning around, wearing another pair of short white shorts, and generally looking hot.
The song itself is very catchy too. Kylie doing what she does best - pop princess stuff. Her vocals sound nice, effortless. The tune is fun and upbeat. Good song. Not particularly deep, but kind of about making the most of herself - a fresh start - new wardrobe etc...
Not surprisingly, this single reached the number 1 spot in the UK singles chart. Its also stood the test of time, being 15 years old now, but actually still sounds good. Its also a song that features in most of her tours then and since.
A fab pop song from pops number one pop princess. I enjoyed having a listen to this again. It made me feel young and fresh and made me want to get down on the dance floor, just perhaps not wearing those shorts. Not for me!
Pop back tomorrow for day 2 with Kylie. Or if you can't wait, head over to My Music page for more - just click here. Happy listening :)
