Charted: 36

Songfacts®:

  • This Europop styled track was co-produced by the Freemasons. The production duo are James Wiltshire and Russell Small, who was formerly one half of Phats & Small.("Turn Around").
  • Russell Small recalled to the UK TV station Channel 4 that there was a long delay before this was accepted onto Kylie's album. He explained: "We co-produced a track for her new album called 'The One' with a guy called Biff Stannard who writes for Spice Girls and has a couple of other tracks on the Kylie album. We sent the track away a year ago and didn't hear anything for about ten months, by which point we were trying to pull it back because we wanted it on our own record, but the day before we finalized our album we found out it had been accepted out of the hundreds of tracks submitted for Kylie."
