Throwback Thursday ‘Can’t Get You Out of My Head’ by Kylie Minogue (2002)
In the US, nobody had really heard from Australian singer, Kylie Minogue, since her cover of "Loco Motion" in 1987 then "Can't Get You Out of My Head" happened.
The song has a very fitting title because the 'La la la la' part would literally get stuck in your head for days! One survey even proved that the song couldn't get our of your head, "In 2013, a survey of 700 people was conducted as part of the Manchester Science Festival to find out which song they considered the "catchiest," and "Can't Get You Out of My Head" topped the poll," states Wikipedia.
"Can't Get You Out of My Head" was the lead single from Kylie's eighth studio album, Fever. In the US, it was released in February of 2002. The song went on to go to #1 in 40 countries. However, in America, it peaked at #7 on the Billboard Hot 100. It did go to #1 on the Dance Club Songs Chart.
According to Wikipedia, "In 2011, Rolling Stone magazine ranked "Can't Get You Out of My Head" at number 45 on "100 Best Songs of the 2000s" list, noting that Minogue had "seduced the U.S. with this mirror-ball classic" and that "we've been hearing it at the gym ever since." It was on various other Best of lists including NME and The Guardian.
The music video was nominated for Best Dance Video at the 2002 MTV Video Music Awards, but didn't win. However, the choreographer won for Best Choreography.
The music video is set in a futuristic cityscape and shows Kylie, in what has become one of her most iconic looks, the white jumpsuit.
