Taking a look at the two B-sides for 'Confide in Me' now. Two very different songs - 'Nothing Can Stop Us' was originally by Saint Etienne, who produced a new version especially for Kylie; it's a similar composition, just a lighter sound and Kylie's distinct vocal is higher. 'If You Don't Love Me' is only 2 minutes long and only has a piano to back Kylie's frankly very impressive vocal.

I've added a poll to determine which you prefer as well.

Love the production of 'Nothing Can Stop Us', so uplifting and I think the album could have done with another moment like this on it. 'If You Don't Love Me' has to be my favourite though as it's one of Kylie's best vocal performances for me. I first discovered the song when watching live performances on YouTube and came across her singing it as part of MTV Most Wanted. She nailed it. The performance on the Aphrodite tour is a beauty too.

If You Don't Love Me is a stunner. Les Folies was my first Kylie gig and I was transfixed when she just sat down and sang THAT. Stunning!

Les Folies was a brilliant tour, Kylie really nailed everything on that tour.

Again, its a reminder of how good cd singles were when we could get some good b sides, i really miss that now in the current singles market.

If You Don't Love Me.

I agree with missing the CD singles and b sides and extras, they made singles much more exciting.
We often experienced b sides that were better than the actual main single.

Yes, I've always preferred paper dolls to spinning around.

So Nothing Can Stop us was originally in the running for lead single, do you think it would have done better or worse than Confide In Me is served as the lead single?

As much as I'm not a fan of confide in me I do think it was the right lead single.

It's not even single material to me, I can't imagine it would have done much.

'If You Don't Love Me' is really quite lovely. wub.gif

If PYIMO was the lead it would have done well and have a better peak,confide in me was different enough to grab attention as second single and would have prob gone top 10 given her top 10s from km94.
