All things considered, at the end of the day, when all’s said and done, in the final analysis, weighing up the pros and cons, when it all comes down to it, if I’m pushed, I’d say ‘I Believe In You’ is my favourite Kylie single. Not ‘Shocked’, not ‘Can’t Get You Out Of My Head’, not ‘I Should be So Lucky’, not ‘Love At First Sight’ – no, I believe in ‘I Believe In You’.
So does Junior. And, if pushed, if asked if she likes Kylie’s singing, she says, “Yes.” And what else does she like? I meant what else does she like about the song, but… “Mermaids. And Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella.”
From top to toe, this record’s gorgeous. Lush and dreamy. I like to think it’s the Kylester’s answer to John Lennon’s ‘God’, but it is, of course, the work of 2004’s main chart sales flava – Scissor Sisters. Who’d have thought Scissor Sisters had it in them?
But I-i-i believe in… me, Yoko and me:

That’s a bit cynical – posting a fake comment just to generate replies.
I won’t be sucked in.
As for the song – this is where pop and me part ways. I mean, it’s a pop song, I suppose, but I can’t think of any context whatsoever where I’d be happy to listen to a song like this.
I don’t know how that happened.
Surely you’d like to listen to it when you’re clad in lycra, camping up and down hills on your Grifter?
I don’t own any lycra. Well, maybe one pair of tights. But they’re INCREDIBLY manly, as lycra goes.
