Yet another reason to fall in love with the fabulous Kylie Minogue
on 7 March 2008
2 Hearts is what all us Kylie fans have been waiting for. After Kylie's recovery we were all waiting with baited breath for any sign of news of the new album and finally with 2 Hearts, we had it. A swaggering, charming slice of glam-pop-rock, the chorus is just awesome. The 'Wooooh's!' are infectious and are just how this song makes you feel, it's uplifting, and at 2.55 in length, manages to pack a lot of punch into such a short song.
Destined to become a Kylie classic, the video is the icing on the cake, Kylie looking absolutely fabulous as usual, rocking her stuff on top of a piano with a sparkly skull microphone and explosions of glitter. Awesome!
The first of the remixes is the Alan Braxe one - not so much a dance version, but more of a re-working, this extends the song and slaps a nice bassline onto the tune. Check out the Kish Mauve remix though, that's where the magic really begins!
The Studio Version (Also known as 'Version by Studio) is intruiging - a kind of latino take on the tune it's full of mediterranean charm with touches of delicate electronica to round it off. Perfect for chilling out to.
I think the main attraction of this picture disc though is the disc itself. Kylie's put these 12"s out since the beginning of her Body Language days and they make for a fabulous collector's item for fans. They look absolutely gorgeous and i'm so glad she does them. Thank you, Kylie!
