I have yet another simple question for you Kylie fans on the Buzzjack Forum!. It's the 30th anniversary of Kylie's 2nd album "Enjoy Yourself", and while there was no shortage of hits already released from this album (including 2 chart toppers), many fans (including me) felt that there was so much more potential hits still on there.

I have placed a poll above for the 2 most popular album tracks "I'm Over Dreaming (Over You)!" & "Enjoy Yourself", both of which were actually considered as singles at some point, but both got passed over in favour of "Never Too Late", and despite both being firm highlights & just plain fantastic, neither were ever considered again.

To put it more simply, which is your fave? & which had more potential to be a big hit?....you decide.

'I'm Over Dreaming' for sure, although I totally forgot how much I loved 'Enjoy Yourself' and been giving it spins this week.

I'd put 'Nothing To Lose' in between them for preference.

Nothing to lose is good aswell but not on the same level, the other 2 have far greater single worth.

To be honest, I'm glad 'Never Too Late' was chosen as that's essential and I can't imagine how it would've been without it.

These songs are not just Enjoy Yourself highlights, they are among my Kylie career highlights.
I have such great affection for both songs.
At present, i slightly prefer enjoy yourself, but that changes.
As a single i think Im Over Dreaming Over You may have performed the better of the 2.

Have played the 2 songs now and with today's mood things can only get better gets my votes but all along I would have said it is the stronger as a single.

Things Can Only Get Better is the stronger single but Enjoy Yourself is such a strong and uplifting pop song.
I have always been hugely surprised Wouldn't Change a Thing was a single ahead of these 2 songs.
That said, i do like Wouldn't Change A Thing but not on the same level.

Voted for 'Enjoy Yourself'' in both polls, while I do think that both of these songs are fantastic and had great potential to be a single, the title track edges out in front for me, it just ends the album with an almighty BANG! & love the thumping bass that runs throughout it & the beat just builds and builds throughout the chorus. The song is simply fantastic and infectious & perfectly merges with the sound of the next album would take. Also have anyone noticed that she never actually says 'Enjoy Yourself' in the song.

"I'm Over Dreaming (Over You)! - again this has so much potential, imagine the fun videos this & 'EY' could have had. Definitely like this song's placing on the album, coming after 2 ballads this certainly picks up the pace with some good old PWL thumping pop & another great example of Kylie's growing maturity as an artist.

Posted some fan-made covers, just for fun...

I really like the text/font used on the words Enjoy Yourself which is represented here in the second cover presented to us.

I've always kind of not really liked that song (even maybe borderline disliked it), but it has actually recently grown on me quite a bit!

Maybe my contender for the song which took longest to like thread.

Wouldn't Change a Thing is enjoyable and i have enjoyed Kylies performances of the song but the song is no match for Enjoy Yourself or Im Over Dreaming Over You.

The album is a great offering and has plenty going on from start to finish.
From both critics and fans it always get ranked in the lower end of her albums which i believe to be harsh as i always place it in the top end of her studio sets.

It was the perfect follow up to her debut and it was a progression, its chart run was shorter but I'd love to know its opening sales in week 1, does anyone know?

Both are album highlights but 'I'm Over Dreaming (Over You)' absolutely should have been a single if the opportunity arose. I remember being hooked the moment I heard it; so feel-good from the moment it begins and has one of the strongest, most catchy choruses of Kylie's PWL work. Perhaps I'm looking too far into it but the fact it was used as the B-side to 'Better the Devil You Know' suggests to me it was in the pipeline as a single until it was decided to move on to the third album.

'Enjoy Yourself' is a great, uplifting album closer and it could have worked as a single, although I don't think it feels like a missed opportunity in the way 'I'm Over Dreaming' was. Didn't Kylie fight for it to be a single at some point, perhaps as early as for the lead single?

With TCOGB the b side to BTDYK felt more like it was never in the running for a single but I do have a vague memory as you mention it that kylie wanted EY to be a single but pwl didnt and wudnt change their mind.

Could a Better The Devil You Know/Im Over Dreaming Over You double A side single have been the way to master both songs to the full?
BTDYK is legendary Kylie and to the credit of the song didnt need watering down with a double A.
But, possiblly holding back, Im Over Dreaming Over You as a double a side for Wouldnt Change A Thing might have been the best way.
