This month marks 10 years since Kylie released 'All the Lovers' as the lead single to her eleventh studio album Aphrodite. The glistening electro-pop/disco production is the perfect backdrop for Kylie's celebratory message of embracing love, heightened by the euphoric, hands-in-the-air chorus and explosive, middle-8 breakdown - it's quintessential Kylie!

The music video shows a flash mob of couples building a pyramid of love-making in which Kylie erupts from as the Goddess of Love. It's a saucy concept but is executed with such sensitivity and allows the beauty of love and affection to shine. Director Joseph Kahn revealed that requests were made to remove any same-sex contact. Kylie refused.

10 years on, what are your thoughts on the single now?

Kylie was the dream artist to work with. First as a specimen of female, she is a joy to photograph. The camera can do no wrong. Her eyes always twinkle. But on top of that, she is extraordinarily collaborative and supportive. She really loves and understand directors, and once she understands the vision, she completely nurtures you to go for it. The craziest thing was she never watched herself on playback! Thatís brilliant. Instead of cosmetics, sheís performing from a pure emotional core. Very few artists trust that instinct or have that ability.

When I turned in the edit, someone at the label wanted to recut the whole video. He just didnít understand it, nor was he willing to listen to me or anyone else. The re-edit was going to be a disaster. But Kylie stepped in and shut that weirdo down COMPLETELY.

This is one of my favorite videos I did last year, and one of my favorites ever really. The message Kylie wanted to say with this video is important, and I am lucky to have worked with her on it.

This was such a moment at Brighton Pride last year! The entire park was in awe, I was in tears. What a beautiful song and one that seems to get better with age (or maybe that's because I become more aware of its beauty as I get older, i'm not sure). Either way, pure love heart.gif

My favourite Kylie song and one of my favourite songs of the last decade. Absolutely sublime. I get chills whenever I listen to it and just love reveling in all it's euphoria and joy!

So much love in this thread! wub.gif

I still remember the first time hearing a 30 second preview in the album announcement video which was of the post-middle 8 breakdown and thinking it was the most euphoric piece of music I had ever heard! The complete song, the video, the promotion - everything was so uplifting and joyous which really resonated with me, even more so with this being the first Kylie single I had properly followed the unveiling and promotional campaign for. It soundtracked my summer 2010 and remains so fresh today, which is quite remarkable considering how most of 2010's music has dated.

It was a huge highlight on the Golden Tour - the moment the confetti cannons fire at the breakdown was incredible, like I was in my own little bubble of happiness and nothing could touch it.

I was listening to it today as part of the Buzzjack Pride playlist in The Lounge and with that context in mind it really moved me. It's such an important song. heart.gif

It was a proud moment to be a Kylie fan, it felt like she'd really transcended outside her traditional fanbase with something. Shame it was her last properly big chart hit.

I'm not sure where I'd rank it in her singles discography, but it becomes more and more special over time for me. So euphoric.

I am a big Kylie fan, but this song for me is most definitely the highlight of her back catalogue, what an amazing song. It has such a euphoric and joyful vibe, I love the instrumental part in the middle and it still gives me so much pleasure.

The video is also fantastic, what a way to start an era.

This echoes my own feelings towards All The Lovers.
A massive standout moment in Kylie's career.
The song has aged like a fine wine and remains ever so refreshing 10 years on from its release.
