This was a tough choice. I voted for put yourself in my place but what kind of fool is also a contender.

Get Outta My Way, still seems strange how this missed top 10 as it was off the back of a big hit, felt very current and everyone seemed to love it.

So many of these deserved better. But I think the real travesty, for me, was Into The Blue. As a lead single, it was perfect. An obvious stand-out on the album.

With a more conceptual, more impactful video, it could have garnered more attention. It was all a bit too subtle.

Should I be basing this on my favourite or which one I think was the most unlucky/unfairly robbed?

'Get Outta My Way' is my favourite. I wish it had been a Top 10 but they left it far too late to push it as a single.

The release of 'Into the Blue' was a huge mess. I remember the single version of the track, which was just outside the Top 10 at the time, was deleted on iTunes which meant the album, which was bottom of the Top 40, had to climb up the chart, although it never managed to get back up to where the single version was. This possibly cost it a Top 10 placing, as the song was #7 in the midweeks.

I also don't understand why the promo for the song came after release week (Sports Relief two weeks later, The Voice UK three weeks, Graham Norton four weeks!).

The song was also unfortunately to be released on a busy week, but is it really fair that Enrique Iglesias' 'I'm a Freak', Flo Rida's 'How I Feel' and Pixie Lott's 'Nasty' outsold it?!

Parlophone struggled or messed up with every kylie single after all the lovers which also had bleeps in its release aswell, into the blue missed out on going top 10 becuase of it aswell.

My favourite song here is Into the Blue, I didn't know about the whole iTunes mess, it's a real shame if that did cost it a better position. However, I voted for Get Outta My Way since I think it's the one that should have been a top 10 the most: it feels by far the most iconic song on the list and it's still so remembered that it's just weird that it wasn't a top 10 smash. It streams better than All the Lovers and I think the two songs have similar recognition, so it would be nice for it to have been a #5 hit or around.

So many great choices but will have to go with "Get Outta My Way" followed closely by "Into The Blue". I thought the former would've been an easy top 10 following on from "All The Lovers"!

'Get Outta My Way' should have been pushed in August, but instead we had a six week gap between her performance on Alan Carr: Chatty Man in mid-July and the music video release, then another three weeks until the physical which took us to the very end of September. I think Parlophone were still living in the early-00s and hadn't worked out how to manage Kylie post-album releases in the digital age.

I think also it came around the point in 2010 when physical CD singles became less readily available in shops, at that point she was starting to struggle on downloads with singles that were post-album so she really relied on those (similar to what happened with 'In My Arms').

Yeah definitely, I just think a tighter promo schedule would helped a lot. She was Top 10 in the mids after all - perhaps if the song had the momentum behind it, it would have held on.
