It certainly deserved more success than it achieved, if Kylie had released the song it would have gone top 10 easily. Sounds like something that could be on Body Language.

It's a terrible song and video. No wonder it tanked. Mind you, I don't think she would have gotten much success by that time anyway, unless she could have provided something like It's Raining Men and it also be attached to a main mainstream movie like It's Raining Men.

I feel like this gets a hard time sometimes, she certainly released singles that were way worse than this.

She was blacklisted by Radio at the time of Desire and I do feel that affected it to a large extent.

I think with their support it would've been a low top ten. It's a good electro pop tune but not really Geri at all. Love Never Loved Me would've been the better choice and she now knows it too.

I find it underrated too, itís decent! She had just fallen out of public favour and the media turned on her, I blame that on the Channel 5 documentary.

She never recorded it and I think Rachel did a good job with it

Annie's song Me Plus One is about Richard X's experience with Geri when she was begging to record Some Girls.



It's hilariously bitchy and petty:

QUOTE
t's time to tell my story
of a girl I used to know
Always cried into her pillow
under pinups on the wall
She didn't make Italia Conte
didn't get that TV show
Then a nice man said he'd help her
with a new portfolio

Missus B Missus E Missus A-U-T
Missus I Missus F-you-L
I'm gonna reach the top
I ain't ever gonna stop
and I'm sure gonna ring your bell
Missus D Missus I Missus F-F-I
Missus C Missus U-L-T
If ever there's a girl
that could rock your world
Then that girl sure is me
(right!)

So the fun won't start til she's living it up
feeling good on top of the pops
Can you make it me plus one?
Dress falls down at the aftershow
She breaks down in the video
Think you'll find it's me plus one

Now this wannabe seniorita
met a group of likely girls
Traded posters and the voxpops
for jetting round the world
But it didn't make her happy
and now she flies alone
The wrong pictures in the paper
and no one back at home

The people around you
won't tell you how it is
Don't you think it's gone on long enough?
Take a look at yourself
Get out of the car
You know it's time
you've got to let it go

Some may remember clips of both Desire and Love Never Loved Me were released for a vote...to give the public a voice on the next single choice. I've always liked Love Never Loved Me better (and consider it the best track on the album). But. At the time...a lot of people sided with Desire because they thought it sounded more current. I kinda wonder if Love Never Loved Me was the one to be released...and it underperformed...would we all be looking at Desire as the great missed opportunity of her career today? She was likely going to be blacklisted by radio for whatever was released.

As for the song...I've always liked it. It's not her best single. It's not her worst. To my ears..Ride It, Love Never Loved Me, Desire and Let Me Love You More were the clear Passion singles. So. While I technically think there was a better song available...I don't think it's a travesty Desire was released. It's one of those songs I remember the fanbase liking a lot better before they saw the chart placing.

A quick note about There's Something About Geri. Looking back, it really is a strange thing. The reality TV of today always gets people being train wrecks in an entertaining way. There's Something About Geri really isn't that. There's nothing especially outrageous in it. Nothing so embarrassing that it should have abruptly ended her career. The only way I can describe it as is...persistently unflattering. It's not good TV. I'm not sure I follow why anyone would want to air it.
