We’re sure you are too, and if not there’s something wrong with you, or you’re just not familiar with her work. But never fear! We’re gonna be looking at each of her albums, counting our way down to our favourite!
Our third favourite is Light Years, her camptastic return to the top of the charts…
Released: September 2000.
Biggest hits: Spinning Around hit #1 in the UK and Australia, and peaked at #2 in New Zealand — her biggest Kiwi hit at that point. On A Night Like This and Kids (with Robbie Williams) were also huge hits.
Producers/songwriters: Kylie co-wrote 9 of the album’s 14 tracks. A whole range of top pop producers and songwriters were involved including Robbie Williams, Biffco, and Graham Stack.
Best track: Your Disco Needs You — perhaps the ultimate gay anthem?
Worst track: Bittersweet Goodbye — not a bad song, just breaks the flow of the album.
The stats: Her first top 10 album in New Zealand since Enjoy Yourself in 1989, the album became her first ever #1 album in Australia with 4 x platinum sales. It also went platinum in the UK making it to #2 and achieved top 40 positions around the world, selling more than a million copies.
What we think: A joyous return to her pop routes, Light Years felt like a camptastic party by the pool complete with martinis and bikinis. It reminded the world of Kylie’s pop genius and set her up for the biggest album and single of her career, placing it at #3 on our list of World’s Best Kylie Minogue albums.
