9. Better the Devil You Know

Rhythm of Love, 1990 | Charted in AUS: 4



The year was 1990 and Kylie was leaving the TV series Neighbours. This song, 'Better The Devil You Know' was one that reinvented her and gave her a little more sex appeal.

The song peaked at number two in the United Kingdom and four in her native Australia.


8. In Your Eyes

7. Come into My World

Fever, 2002 | Charted in AUS: 4



Kylie could have won big this year if it wasn't for Delta Goodrem's debut album Innocent Eyes. At the 2003 ARIA Music Awards, Kylie was nominated for Best Female Artist and "Come into My World" was nominated for Best Pop Release but she lost both awards to Delta Goodrem.


Not to mention that year her sister Dannii Minogue was also nominated for Best Pop Release for her album Neon Nights...maybe just stick to TV eh, Dannii?


6. Kids ft Robbie Williams

Light Years, 2000 | Charted in AUS: 14



Robbie Williams began to write this song for Kylie when she needed new tracks for Light Years, but instead their chemistry gave him other ideas. The song turned into a duet and he also released it on his album and as a single. It was an instant hit when it was released in 2000.

Confide in Me was written by Kylie's new production and writing team when she left the label PWL. She felt like a puppet for her former producers, Stock, Aitken and Waterman and was glad to move to UK dance label Deconstruction Records in 1993. This charted at number 1 in Australia.


4. On a Night Like This

Light Years, 2000 | Charted in AUS: 1



Commercially, it experienced success in Australia and the United Kingdom, peaking at number one and number two, respectively. This was originally a club hit for Pandora, a Swedish dance singer who recorded it on her 1999 album No Regrets. Kylie covered it and made the song well known.
