Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

This dance-pop tune was released by Australian recording artist Kylie Minogue as a single to coincide with the celebration of the singer's quarter century in the music business. The song was dropped on May 25, 2012, two months short of twenty-five years after her debut single, a cover of Little Eva's "The Loco-Motion," came out in Australia, Sweden and Italy.
Songwriting credits go to Karen Poole, Matt Schwartz and Paul Harris.

The daughter of former Tremeloes frontman Brian Poole, Karen Poole formed the pop duo Alisha's Attic, together with her younger sister Shelley. After achieving five UK Top 20 hits between 1997 and 2001, Poole branched out into song-writing, co-penning several UK Top 10 hits for Kylie, including "Red Blooded Woman," "Chocolate" and "Wow."

Israeli-born Electronica producer and artist Matt Schwartz arrived in London in the early 90's. He went straight into the dance scene working at the Hit-House in Hammersmith in 1994/5 and the BeatFarm studios in 1996/8, which included collaborating with Massive Attack. In 1998 Schwartz decided to concentrate on his own career as an artist as well as a producer and bought a small studio. He achieved two UK Top 10 singles in 2004 as one half of the electronic music duo Deepest Blue and his composition "Shooting Star." was the theme tune for Sky Sports for 3 years.

Paul Harris is a member of the British house trio Dirty Vegas, who are best known for their international hit single "Days Go By."
The Christian Larson directed video was shot in London's Soho area. We see Kylie striding down Old Compton Street singing aloud. "When we were shooting down the busiest street in Soho, I worked with an in-ear monitor," she told Vevo. "I must have looked like a complete idiot because I'm strutting down the street singing to absolutely nothing!"

After Kylie removes her jacket, we see she's wearing a provocative black mini dress. She told Vevo: "That was a very cheeky little outfit. People don't believe it, but I do get very shy and timid. I was like, 'Oh god please, can't there be more to this?'"
