But many gems never got their chance to have their moment of Top 40 glory - if you could chose one to have made the Top 40 which would you go with?

Keep On Pumpin’ It Up (#49)
GBI (With Towa Tei - #63)
Sometime Samurai (With Towa Tei - DNC)
Your Disco Needs You (#152)
Lhuna (With Coldplay - DNC)
Put Your Hands Up (#93)
Flower (#96)
I Was Gonna Cancel (#59)
Beautiful (With Enrique - DNC)
Crystallize (#60)
Only You (With James Corden - #155)
100 Degrees (With Dannii - DNC)
Every Days Like Christmas (DNC)
Whistle (With Múm - DNC)
Absolutely Anything & Anything At All (DNC)
This Wheels On Fire (DNC)
Right Here, Right Now (With Giorgio Moroder - #125)
The Other Boys (With Nervo - DNC)
Stop Me From Falling (#52)
Golden (DNC)

So many missed opportunities on that list - and some I can’t believe didn’t trouble the Top 100 (Right Here, Right Now, The Other Boys, 100 Degrees etc.,) nocheer.gif

Excluding Golden era singles, I would go with Flower.

Flower would be the first pick.
I would swap out a few Top 10 hits in place of Flower as i think it is a stunning heartfelt ballad.

^^ The lack of success for ‘Flower’ still bothers me - even the Picture Disc and CD physicals couldn’t get it up the charts nocheer.gif

Yes, it truly should have achieved more success, it is the stand out on the Abbey Road Sessions album.
Its use on Emmerdale had my hopes high for chart glory which unfortunately never materialized.

I'd probably actually go with 'The Other Boys'. ohmy.gif

Three years on and it's one of my essential life anthems.

I have only recently got into The Other Boys, it is equally infectious and camp.

Crystallize, like other tracks, very underrated.
It was a highlight from an overall disappointing Kylie era.

Stop Me From Falling, though its peak position, chart run, sales and impact is not to be sniffed at for a Kylie single in 2018!

Such a tune music.gif I still listen to it all the time and still can’t believe it didn’t manage to chart at all!

Stop Me From Falling has some higher sales than some of the Top 40 hits Kylie achieved.
I had thought The Other Boys would easily sneak into the lower end of the Top 100 but i don't believe it came anywhere close to it.

For me, 'The Other Boys' is the one that really deserved it. A high profile collaboration that was musically relevant at the time, and a great video too.

But I'd have liked 'Every Days Like Christmas' to have become a Christmas classic. If it was the lead single, maybe it would've got more radio play.

I love 'Flower', but it was old news by the time it saw a release. So I can understand why it under-performed.

It felt a lot like 'Flower' was just randomly released one day as an afterthought. There wasn't any hype around it and it didn't really feel like a proper single.

Ya it didn't feel like it was a real single but I felt the same about the one. I had hoped kylie would have performed flower when she done promo for the abbey Road album.

Stop Me From Falling is one of Kylie's best tracks ever and the video too.

Her Giorgio Moroder anthem was brilliant too

Flower one of her best ballads

The Other Boys never promoted correctly

I like stop me from falling a lot but dancing us way ahead of it and I'd also prefer flower. I would easily swap these out for where is the feeling and confide in me chart positions.
