Love At First Sight
Album: Fever
Year: 2002

Kylie Minogue's worries dissolve as the DJ plays in the divine "Love At First Sight."

Shimmery synths open the single, setting a euphoric tone. In the first verse, she explains that she had an awful day. She had the day off from work. However, it rained and she couldn't get any outside work done. Then, she burned her dinner. She decided to get carry out, but it was cold. At about 9 pm, her boyfriend picked a fight with her for no reason. All she could think of what she had to do and finish. Then, she thought of going out dancing.

"Thought that I was going crazy/Just having one of those days yeah/Didn't know what to do/Then there was you."



In the chorus, she says he played every single one of her favorite remixes. Within an hour, the DJ won her heart. It completely made everything better.

"And everything went from wrong to right/And the stars came out and filled up the sky/The music you were playing really blew my mind/It was love at first sight/'Cause baby when I heard you/For the first time I knew/We were meant to be as one."



In the second verse, she said she's had too many bad days. She was about let herself go and drown in her depression. But then the DJ came along and gave her life a purpose again.

"Was tired of running out of luck/Thinking 'bout giving up yeah/Didn't know what to do/Then there was you."



The chorus is sung again.

The second half of the chorus is sung again.

"'Cause baby when I heard you/We were meant to be as one."



The chorus is sung again.

"And everything went from wrong to right/ It was love at first sight/Love at first sight/Love at first sight/Love at first sight/Baby when I heard you/For the first time I knew/We were meant to be as one/Baby when I heard you/For the first time I knew/We were meant to be as one."



At the end, she says she couldn't help but fall.

"It was love, it was love, it was love, it was love/It was love, it was love, it was love, it was love."

 



The perfect set of beats can solve any problem. Her endless string of hellish days was cut the moment she went to the club. The neon lights, the camadarie, and the rush from hearing every favorite song in a row. Once she gets home, she still has the energy and excitement. With one evening, she believes in herself again.

Her exultant vocals are glowing and pleasing. For her, the dance floor is home and a release from the pressure she feels day after day.

The elastic synths bounce and surge with intoxication. Any problem is quickly whirled away among the swimming beats.

"Love At First Sight" is luscious dance-pop any DJ could be proud play at the club.

Kylie's vocal stylings, combined with her songwriter's and producer's skilful blend of pop, techno, and disco sounds, make up a significant part of my playlist.

Of course, I'm also convinced that her singing career is a cover for her role as an assassin for the Gay Mafia...

LOL, stutefish!

The minute I heard the song I was hooked. I grew up loving Madonna but now I'm all about Kylie.

Her concerts are awesome, too. "Live In Sydney" is just too cool.
