So excited to have Kylie back in her hometown of Melbourne this week and cannot wait for the show at the Bowl. So in homage to my #1, I’ve compiled a few of my favourite Kylie film clips…
If my local swimming pool had synchronised towel dance sequences to Kylie classics like this, I’d be there in a heartbeat. This is iconic. Oh Brazil, how I long to visit.
GET OUTTA MY WAY
Definitely one of my favourite Kylie moments of all time. The styling, the lighting, the choreography – this clip and song is perfection. I often sing this song while driving (and it often plays in my mind while at crowded airports!).
The chocolate brown pleated cape! The swishy Art Deco dance moves! Slinky and elegant.
Oooh la la! Probably the most beautiful clip ever filmed in Paris. This song, the styling and the clip was so ahead of the time. It really is early 90’s pop perfection. Moody, poignant, romantic – so much longing, desire, sadness.
WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO
This clip is one of the biggest fan favourites of all time and it’s easy to see why. It’s one of my favs too. Kylie is the ULTIMATE Glamazon here, channelling divas, lip-synching in a steamy bath, ironing, singing. The patent leather, the beehives, the wigs – this clip is truly iconic.
PUT YOURSELF IN MY PLACE
Channelling Barberalla, Kylie is the space diva of all time. I love the pink, the styling and her hair colour. Not to mention her singing is excellent on this track!
WORD IS OUT
This new jack swing style number is one of Kylie’s most jazzy r’n’b numbers and always been a favourite of mine. I love the strutting, the colourful suits and the 1930’s finger wave hair do. Her vocal runs are unreal in this track and the backing vocals and horns are jamming! This song has never been performed in her live shows (except the anti-tour I believe there was a wee a capella rendition?) so I cross my fingers for a performance of this underrated gem at her Melbourne show. I love this song so much I have recorded a cover version as a bonus track for my new album – I hope I can do it some justice!
Also check out Better The Devil You Know, Confide In Me, Wow! Fingers crossed for a complete collection Blueray release of all her clips. What is your favourite clip?
Kylie, forever our queen. Thank you for the music!
Love, Chels x
