My Retro Single of the Week - Kylie - Can't Get You Out of My Head

My retro single of the week is Kylie with her classic 'Can't Get You Out of My Head'.

Can't Get You Out of My Head is probably Kylie's most famous songs. It was released in 2001 and was the lead single from her eighth album Fever.

The most memorable part of this song is the "la la la" which really gets in your head, to the point where you can't get it out of your head either! Presumably, the song is about her lover and not being able to get him out of her head.

Its a dance track with a mid paced and kind of hypnotic beat to it. Kylie sings "la la la" throughout the song in a sort of robotic style. Her voice sounds breathy and beautiful as she obsesses over her desire. "I just can't get you out of my head, boy your loving is all I think about".

The sex appeal in the video matches the sexiness of the song. Lets make no bones about this - Kylie looks smoking. Perfect in fact. Another iconic image is her in that white jumpsuit with the hood. It is very revealing, but because its done so subtly, its sexy not in your face. Think Angelina Jolie not Nicki Minaj!

There are lots of costumes, lots of dance sequences and its just brilliant. Futuristic setting, lots of monochrome. This is a very stylish video. Kylie moves beautifully, and the various outfits are all equally head turning, with the show stopper being that white jumpsuit of course.

Can't Get You Out of My Head was a number 1 hit in the UK singles chart. It was a massive hit pretty much everywhere in fact.

This is one amazing song. Kylie at her absolute best. I love this track. Pure pop genius!
