Today marks 20 years since the release of 'On a Night Like This', the second single from Light Years and follow-up to Kylie's #1 comeback record 'Spinning Around'. Now a Kylie classic, the song was originally recorded by Swedish singer Pandora before being handed over to Parlophone. The song's Europop sound captures the mood of Ibiza as Kylie sings of an unique night filled with pleasure and euphoria. Critics enjoyed this further exploration into the dance world and it became another chart success, particularly in Australia where it placed #1 upon debut and a few weeks later following Kylie's performance at the 2000 Olympics Closing Ceremony.

20 years on, what are your thoughts and memories on this single?

I really liked this when I was younger, along with Jennifer Lopez - Waiting For Tonight and Vanessa Amorosi - Absolutely Everybody its a good example of the Latin house influence in some pop music of the time.

I loved absolutly everybody by vanessa amorosi, shame she ended up a 1 hit wonder in the UK.

This is the song that made me a Kylie fan, after not enjoying Spinning Around the first time around. Still one of her best for me.

It was a strong choice as second single but Kids was a talking point during its release as there was hype circulating for the Kylie and Robbie duet.

Forgot to comment on this myself! This is one of my favourite Kylie songs too, I think only second to 'In Your Eyes'. I love the Euro sound, it's full of emotion and is the perfect backdrop for Kylie's soaring vocals. Hearing her perform it on the Golden Tour was a dream!

Big fan of the Abbey Road version too, although I feel it was a little too big towards the end for her to perfectly pull off live.

Little behind-the-scenes clip I found, where Kylie talks a bit about the song as well as achieving her first #1 single in ten years:
