In 2001, Kylie Minogue's infectious classic "Can't Get You Out of My Head" hit the airwaves. Still, nearly 20 years later, it remains her favorite song in her catalog.
What's most interesting is that the song was offered to Sophie Ellis Baxter and S Club 7 before Kylie got her hands on it. Thankfully for Kylie, those others passed on it.
"I just had that feeling or that sensation of, 'What am I listening to? This is absolutely incredible,'" she told Junkee of her first time hearing the tune.
Of course, "Can't Get You Out of My Head" went on to help define Kylie's career and it put her on the map in America, where she had yet to really have any success.
"Gosh, now that nearly 20 years have passed, it just seems like… it just did so much for me," she said. "I mean, America is not my market, I've had little bursts of so-called success. But with that one, I didn't have a record company in America and then a DJ played it, and next thing I've got a label sending a private jet to get the crew and go and do promotion. So it was just its own juggernaut."
While "Can't Get You Out of My Head" is in a league of its own, Kylie is still immensely proud of her newest album called "Disco," which she recorded in quarantine. She recently told Billboard that she had to learn how to record from home and buy all the equipment.
"Lockdown happened, and I had to figure out how to do everything remotely," she said. "It was very exciting to get the equipment, fire up my logical-rational brain and find the right place in the house to put it. I was dragging [around] duvets and blankets and clothes racks to make [my lounge room] good for sound."
