Love at First Sight is a great song and Kylie Minogue, in general, could potentially have one of the most solid greatest hits albums if I was allowed to curate it. That’s a much longer blog post for the future.
Love at First Sight is one of those songs that I will always dance to. It feels like its scientifically concocted to appeal specifically to me. The nu-disco and dance elements, combined with singing that I can’t replicate but will always try to, are perfect.
The mad thing for me is that Love at First Sight has two insane musical features that have no business being in the song but are incredible additions. There’s what I think is classical guitar in the pre chorus that just very delicately appears. This reminds me of DJ Pied Piper & The Masters of Ceremonies’ Do You Really Like It? and once I made that connection it’s impossible not to think about it every time I hear it. Secondly, there’s some insane bongos that appear around the two minute mark out of nowhere. I listened to this song for years without noticing either of those details but they’ve changed my life. Two masterstrokes in one song. What a time to be alive.
