'Burning Up' is a song by Kylie Minogue, taken from her eighth studio album Fever. The song was written and produced by Tom Nichols and Greg Fitzgerald, and appears as the final track on the standard edition of the album.

"Burning Up" first made an appearance on Kylie's Fever Tour, where it served as the first song of the penultimate section; here, Kylie was lifted some twenty feet above the stage with a large red dress covering 12 dancers beneath her; the song preceded a performance of "Better the Devil You Know". The song then made an appearance on the Homecoming Tour in 2006, where it was mashed up with Madonna's "Vogue" as an interlude. This was the same on the For You, For Me tour in 2009, which was Kylie's first tour in North America.

"Burning Up" was described as a "slow-burn" disco song, that is an example of the disco-influenced production of the album. This was rumoured at one point to being released as the 5th single from the album, but nothing came of it & after 'CIMW' was released it was felt that the era had come to a natural end.

What's your opinion on the track? Do you think it would have made a good single after the already successful 4, or would you have released it sooner?

No on both polls.
Burning Up, is good, there is much better and worse on Fever but i would not have had it in the running to turn into a single.

I've voted yes as a highlight, but no as a single.

It has a mix of sounds that makes it special as an album track. But, in my opinion, it wouldn't work as a single as it's too disjointed. It would confuse the heck out of a dance floor.

It's fantastic, but absolutely not a single.

Outside of the 4 actual singles, Fever was the only other option as a single.
Burning Up, is good, but album track good, not single.

The Fever tour performance was a highlight, but not the song itself and it certainly wouldn't work as a single release, not even the final single release.

The fever tour highlighted what a great choice CIMW was for 4th single. It was a brill opener and staging for CIMW was spot on. Burning up was good on tour aswell but not near to the same level.

The opening robotic sequence was a joy to watch on that tour.

YES! to the first poll, the song is a definite highlight on the album & tour (which made me like it even more). It ends the standard edition of the album with a resounding BANG!, full of funk, class & disco, while it does offer something different to the other singles, I don't think it would have quite worked, considering there were much stronger offerings ('Fever' & 'Love Affair') on there, and considering 'CIMW' went to #8 on the UK charts, this may have went lower (maybe even missing the top 10), plus the album had already sold so much by this point and the public may have not been interested enough in this, especially if they'd already had the album.

While it would have been nice to see another single from this era, it was great as it was & why spoil a good thing.

Fever is remembered fondly on many levels so how the era was handled was correct overall.
Maybe some songs could have been sent to radio as promotional singles.

You're right 'Fever' was set to be the fourth single from the album in Australia, with one-track promotional CDs made and sent to radio stations; however, plans for this were cancelled in favour "Come into My World", which was to be released as the fourth single in the rest of the world, due to it's growing popularity on the tour.

I was aware Fever was in consideration for 4th single and the tour impact reaction to Come Into My World was what lead to the decision to run with Come Into My World for single Number 4.

While not a big remix fan, I do think fever had great potential for good remixes as part of the CD single.maybe a burning up/fever mash up might have worked?

Mash-Ups were very of that time, Dannii tested the mash up market and it worked positively for her.

They were on trend for numerous years, but, much like everything else in the music industry it has changed.
