Just a little poll on which run of Kylie's 2nd album Enjoy Yourself, do you guys think is better, from the 2 cycles below?


What We Got:
Hand On Your Heart
Wouldn't Change A Thing
Never Too Late
Tears On My Pillow


Original Scrapped Run:
Hand On Your Heart
Wouldn't Change A Thing
Enjoy Yourself
(I'm Over Dreaming) Over You




Both of these runs are great, while the official run is great packed with some firm classics. But the original run is also great & quite different with the latter 2 (IODOY & EY) being one the album's best & strongest points, but with NO "Never Too Late" which still to this day one of her most well known & loved songs. So both of these runs have their good points.

Enjoy Yourself: - Kylie's choice for the album's 3rd single instead of 'NTL', but the decision was overruled by Pete Waterman.

I'm Over Dreaming (Over You): - Originally lined up to be the album's 3rd then final single, but was scrapped in favour of both 'Never Too Late' & 'Tears On My Pillow', the latter of which featured in her movie 'The Delinquents', so they decided to use that instead.

I prefer the original plan run but would swap wouldnt change a thing for never too late. Enjoy yourself and I'm over dreaming over you are brilliant and 2 big fave's of mine in her whole catalogue. I do really love the album in general though.

The planned run.
Enjoy Yourself and (I'm Over Dreaming) Over You are 2 Kylie greats and more than worthy of single status.
Superb album that doesn't get enough credit.

Both of these runs are GREAT, but decided to stick with what we got, as "NTL" is one of Kylie's all-time classics & yeah 'TOMP' is seen as bit of a sore point in this era, but it did give Kylie another #1, (her only chart topper of the 90's). Plus it did show another side to the album, coming after 3 up-tempo numbers & slowing things down with a rather nice 50's styled ballad.

However the other run would have been great also & would have been interesting to see how they'd both fair chart-wise. 'EY' as single #3 could have definitely smashed like 'NTL' (dunno if it would have done any better than 'NTL' did). Then 'IODOY' as the final single & ended this era with a BANG, but don't think either of these would have been #1's though.

Just for fun, I'm including fan-made covers of both 'Enjoy Yourself' & 'I'm Over Dreaming (Over You)', just to give u an idea of what could have been.

Two of my all time favourite Kylie songs - just shows what a strong pop album EY is.

I think they both would have performed well if they had been released however Kylie needed to go with something a little bit different such as NTL to start to build up to the ROL era.

Everyone hates TOMP but I still love it along with the film.

The original run was fine. I canít actually see enjoy yourself or Iím over dreaming over you doing any better than never too late or tears on my pillow.

I reckon chart-wise both 'Enjoy Yourself' & 'I'm Over Dreaming (Over You)', could have done well, looking at the weeks 'NTL' & 'TOMP' came out. 'EY' as the 3rd single in Nov '89, would have probably performed similarly as 'NTL' did, top 5. Then 'IODOY', don't think this would have hit #1 like 'TOMP' did, but on the Jan '90 release week (which was pretty quiet with Kylie being the highest new entry that week), then maybe another top 5 hit, as she was on a winning streak at the time & both of these potential choices could have kept the momentum, but not in the same way as the other official 2 did.

Ya I think both would have kept her top 5 streak going but to be fair the singles released all did well.

Do we have any evidence of this "planned run"?

I can't imagine not having 'Never Too Late' in her discography, it's an essential!

'Enjoy Yourself' being lined up as a single is true, think there's a few sources that confirm Kylie really wanted it as a single, like on her old website. Not sure about 'I'm Over Dreaming' but it's one I've heard quite a few times. I've always thought it being the B-side to 'Better the Devil You Know' suggested it was at one point considered, but I know that's nothing concrete.

This 'planned' run of singles is very solid, but I'm with Tawdry that 'Never Too Late' is an essential (my favourite of Kylie's from the 80s) and 'Tears On My Pillow' did supply Kylie with another #1 which I don't think any other song would have without that link to The Delinquents.

I agree about never too late, Ive always loved it and it's my fave of the singles actually released from enjoy yourself.

I'd say they knew over dreaming was popular when they added it as btdyk b side.

Don't think much of the title track, cannot really see it as single, NTL is much better and easily the jewel from the album.

One song I always thought could have been a single was Heaven on Earth, sounds like a nice Christmas ballad to me.

Heaven and Earth is a gorgeous song but I could never imagine it as a single.

Heaven and earth might have worked as a double sided single but not by itself but i do like the song.

Never Too Late is a huge memory from Kylie's early work and it is popular here too.

At the time i loved hand on your heart and clearly remember the totp performance of the week she was number 1, wouldnt change a thing i did like and was so disappointed i could never get the single (until years ) as it wasnt released in Ireland. Never too late i always loved but i also clearly remember the pic sleeve when i saw it and was relieved to get the single as i was afraid it would be like wouldnt change a thing and not get released here. I have less memories of tears on my pillow, i dont really remember much about the week it went to number 1 but i do remember all the delinquents promo and looking forward to the film. I couldnt get the single straight away, i think i had to wait about 3 weeks but i remember hating the cover, i was like after the brilliant never too late (which to this day is one of my fave covers) we get this and its bland. I understand the cover more now though than i did when i was 9 or 10.
