Kylie Minogue: 'All The Lovers'

By
Kylie 'All The Lovers'
Released on Monday, Jun 28 2010

There aren't many popstars who could make a video featuring doves, balloons, a galloping horse, a giant inflatable elephant and a mass grope-fest in the middle of LA.... and get away with it. Then again, there aren't many popstars who engender the collective affection that Kylie Minogue does. After all she's been through over the last quarter-century, after all we've been through with her, you just want to give her a hug and say, 'Cheers for being there'.

'All The Lovers', the lead single from her upcoming Aphrodite album, will only add to these warm 'n' fuzzies. Though it was written and produced by Kish Mauve, the London electropop duo who previously steered 2007's '2 Hearts', it actually has more in common with Minogue's earlier Scissor Sisters collaboration, 'I Believe In You'. To be precise, it's a shimmering midtempo electro-disco tune with a lovely arms-in-the-air chorus and lyrics that acknowledge that Kylie's, well, been around the block a bit. "All the lovers that have gone before, they don't compare to you," she sings on that chorus, prompting us to melt as hopelessly and inevitably as the tub of Vienetta we left in the car boot over the weekend. Ice cream aside, we wouldn't have it any other way.
