Kylie Minogue, Australia’s pop princess, has been gracing the world with iconic pop hits for years. With over 80 million records sold globally and a career spanning decades, Kylie has amassed a treasure trove of hits. But what are her top ten songs of all time?
Released in 2003, “Slow” marked a sonic shift for Kylie into the realms of minimalist electropop. This song offers a refreshing twist in her career, featuring a languid beat and sensual lyrics. It’s an arresting track that will get you dancing, albeit in a—well, slow manner.
“Shocked,” from 1991, is one of Kylie’s earlier songs where she shed her teen-pop persona for a more mature, R&B-influenced sound. With its catchy melody, it’s almost impossible not to move to this track. An old hit, but a good one!
8. In Your Eyes
This 2002 hit is a genuine pop classic featuring an irresistibly danceable beat. “In Your Eyes” is a shimmering blend of disco and pop elements, with Kylie’s signature voice as the radiant focal point. This song is Kylie at her most Kylie—glamorous, infectious, and unforgettable.
7. Love at First Sight
With “Love at First Sight” in 2001, Kylie proved she was still relevant in an ever-changing musical landscape. A delightful dance-pop hit, the song is irresistibly catchy and plays with themes of love and desire in a manner that feels both nostalgic and fresh.
6. In My Arms
“In My Arms,” released in 2008, showcases a more energetic, electronic side of Kylie. The song is a dizzying mix of synths and beats, featuring an infectious melody that takes you on a musical journey. It has all the elements we expect from a great Kylie hit.
5. On a Night Like This
This 2000 track has it all: an unforgettable melody, gorgeous vocals, and an atmosphere that instantly transports you to the dance floor. “On a Night Like This” is perfect for the late hours and embodies the essence of what makes Kylie Minogue such an enduring pop icon.
4. Better the Devil You Know
This 1990 hit is one of Kylie’s most iconic songs. “Better the Devil You Know” is a cheerful, danceable track but carries an underlying melancholy. This song marked a turning point in Kylie’s career, transitioning her from a pop idol to a serious artist.
3. Spinning Around
“Spinning Around,” released in 2000, was a grand comeback for Kylie. With this disco banger, she returned to her dance-pop roots and demonstrated that she was still one of the biggest names in the music industry. The golden hot pants she wore in the music video have since become legendary.
2. Confide in Me
“Confide in Me” (1994) reveals a completely different side of Kylie. The song is subdued, mysterious, and at the same time, powerful. It proves her versatility as an artist and shows that she can do more than just produce pop and dance hits.
1. Can’t Get You Out of My Head
We conclude with what is perhaps her most significant hit ever: “Can’t Get You Out of My Head” from 2001. Not just one of Kylie’s most well-known songs, it’s also one of the most indelible pop tracks ever produced. The minimalist production and the hypnotic “la la la” make it a song that you, ironically, can’t get out of your head.
