It is 15 years since 'Slow' come out.









This was Kylie's 7th UK #1 and was the lead single for her 9th studio album 'Body Language' This also topped the charts in her native country Australia, Denmark, Romania, Spain. It charted in the Billboard Hot 100 at #91.

Such an epic song - I have to admit I HATED this song and the whole BL era at the time but Slow has become one of my all time favourite Kylie songs, always amazing when she performs it too. When she sung it at her New York show it was a moment wub.gif

Slow was different but different in a positive way and i have always liked it.
Body Language as an album didn't fulfill me.

I've always liked it, but I feel like I hold it in higher regard now. She looks the best she's ever looked in the video. Can't believe it's now 15 years since her last ever number one.

It's also Kylie's favourite single of hers too, I believe.

I'd have thought from what she has before that where the wild Rose's grow us her fave single.I do like slow and it's a sad to think ut was likely her last ever number 1 single.

I've always liked it, but I feel like I hold it in higher regard now.

I agree, with time it has just become stronger and stronger. As a kid I preferred her bigger pop songs so 'Slow' just passed me by, but now it's the subtle, slick production and those seductive whispery vocals that really hooks me to the song. So cool and sexy; I find it's one of those songs that's adored by fans but would also be enjoyed by non-fans, not just in a guilty pleasure way either.

The video is a stunner. Much like the song itself, it masters the less is more approach. Kylie doesn't even rise from her beach towel yet she keeps the audience engaged throughout: the effortless movements and looks to the camera oozes tasteful sex appeal. Great direction and camera work too; it all just comes together so well and further proved that Kylie didn't need to do a recreation of 'Head'.

The Chemical Brothers remix is one of my favourites. I'm not usually a fan of lengthy remixes but, in this case, you need the 7-minute version to get the full experience. The momentum builds and builds until the production finally bursts, yet there's still that sense of minimalism of the original, I find.

For me, it is just oozes sex appeal. She looked absolutely incredible in that video.

It def oozes sex appeal and not a song that wouldn't be played in a strip club.
