Early this month marked 15 years since the release of 'Chocolate', the third and final single taken from Body Language. The song incorporates elements of disco and funk and Kylie's synthesised vocal is breathy and sensual, delivering innuendos as she compares chocolate to her addiction to love. Its supporting video is elegant and stylish, featuring synchronised dance routines and ballet. It became a moderate hit in the charts, including a #6 peak in the UK where it placed 11th in a streak of Top 10 singles.

15 years on, how do you rate 'Chocolate'?

I do rate Chocolate and i did upon release.
The song is often overlooked, its omission from Step Back in Time was disappointing as it is better than Red Blooded Woman which made the track listing.

I really like 'Chocolate' and I think it offers something a little different from Kylie. I'd probably rate it below all the other Parlophone singles that preceded it but it's still one I really enjoy. The instrumental is so slick - very Bedtime Stories era Madonna; soulful and dreamy.

The video should get more recognition too.

It was a different and slow paced Kylie single but very easy listening.
It is a very relaxing song.

Great song and along with slow was the standouts from the slightly disappointing body language.

I loved every single from this era and 'Chocolate' is no exception! Irresistibly smooth *.* I was definitely disappointed that it wasn't on the new GH.

I didn’t care for any of the singles post ‘Slow’ however I’ve grown to love Chocolate and RBW over the years.

‘Chocolate’ seems to have aged well but will never be a Kylie classic IMO.

I agree, as much as I like it it's nowhere near on the kylie classic list.

I loathe the radio edit version but I rather love the album version.

Is the difference that big to loathe one and love the other?

The album version just sounds lovelier, the radio edit, since it was, well, edited, just sounds incoherent.

I used to consider it one of my absolute favourites, but I think now I don't hold it in quite as high regard. I feel like the vocal in it can get on my nerves unless I'm in the right mood. The video is one of her absolute best though. wub.gif

Can't believe it's been 15 years! I remember the release week so perfectly, and the relentless trolling on the old site (CC) I got from a certain group of Madonna fans. laugh.gif

Does anyone else know people who thought Kylie's 'Chocolate' was this and that Kylie sang the song? laugh.gif It's happened to me a few times.

Chocolate is one of Kylie's singles i thoroughly enjoy but can equally understand where it falls short among fans.
It does not stand out enough to be remembered outside the core fanbase.
Equally it does not get performed enough to resonate with new listeners.

It's not the usual by kylie but still is very kylie at the same time. I think chocolate and into the blue may get performed at brighton.

That could be the result and it would explain "justice for Into The Blue and Chocolate".
