Lately is really a GREAT dance-pop song. There's something very DANNII about it almost.

I fucking still LOVE Lately. It's basically a 2nd rate Kylie track but it was EVERYTHING to a mid 20s gay back then

which I realise is not saying MUCH given Dannii's late-careeer penchant for sonic anonymity :D

What was the story with this single? It was released way before Electric and the album wasn't it? Or am I misremembering?

It went Lately, Too Far Gone, and Electric a year or so later with the album, non?

Too Far Gone is more Kylie than Dannii. It's almost a direct homage to the Fever era I would say.

There's a nice hint of retro/future-disco MELANCHOLY here which I really vibe with

The album was originally due to be released in 2003, and was called Unleashed. After Too Far Gone missed the top 10 she was dropped. Fucking ridiculous really.

8 of the tracks on Never or Now were due to be on Unleashed. There were a further 6 or so that never surfaced apart from a sampler of 30 seconds of each song.

@dUb I’m worried for what some of these other songs will score

So there was a vote on her website as to which song was to be the second single. Too Far Gone won and was duly released.

Yes, Too Far Gone really could have been a single by Kylie

For a song called Electric this has no energy WHATSOVER :D what a slog

08 Lately
09 Too Far Gone
05 Electric

It takes about 15 seconds to realise, if you somehow didn't know already, that Back In Time will be incredible.

This one came out when I was in first year at uni. I got the cd single and played it on my stereo, I think upstairs came down to tell me to turn it down. homophobes.

The only thing holding Back In Time back slightly is a vocal that's a bit... questionable in places. Especially those backing vocals. Honey, another take wouldn't have hurt

It's hitting that Fever era Kylie vibe again though, this time with a vague hint of Neon Nights in the mix :disco:
