Kylie Minogue released Spinning around 21 years ago..

Recommended Posts

In 1998, Kylie minogue was dropped by deconstruction records, due to the low sales of 1997's Impossible Princess, which was retitled Kylie minogue '98 in the UK, to avoid any kind of controversy with the word Princess as the British public was still reeling with the death of Diana..


In, 1999, a free agent, Kylie minogue collaborated with the Pet shop boys on the track "In denial", playing the role of the daughter who knows her father is gay, and is very pathetic that he cant come out, even though she knows about his Rough trade boyfriends, Muscle Mary's and his likeness of queens and fairies..the track was universally acclaimed, and this led her to talk to Parlophone/EMI..


They signed her a six album deal, but told her that they never had anybody like Kylie minogue on their label, to which according to the Notes on "ultimate kylie", she replied with her trademark confidence.


"Nor does anybody else". 


Due to the public backlash of indie Kylie, but now in the public eye and critics "Impossible princess" is actually a great album, and it's part of a trio of great trip hop album's Ray of Light By Madonna and Northern star by Melanie C share a link to that album by Kylie minogue, felt going back to her dance pop roots was actually the best step..


In comes Spinning around, a track written by Paula Abdul for her unreleased 4th studio album, which was supposed to be on a new contract she signed with mercury records after Virgin dropped her for the lackluster sales of 1995's Head over heels, but the island def jam merger and Polygram buying Universe as well, ended up seeing Paula getting dropped before any new Music was to be recorded..


Lyrically it does touch on that with the opening line.


"Traded in my sorrows for some joy that I borrowed, from back in the day"..


It would be appropriate for Kylie as well, given how she was literally starting over on her third record label..


The video is also iconic, besides the dress of Can't get you out of my head, Spinning around is known for the hot gold pants that actually gave a perfect up close shot of her bum, it was the video and the rebirth of Kylie the pop star with a modern disco pop twist that made the track her first #1 single in the UK in a decade, and a return to form for the UK's favorite pop princess..
