    locomotion - a career defining track
    Better The Devil You Know - landmark single
    Confide In Me - landmark single and a reinvention
    Kids - i am still shocked it didn't hit #1, despite robbie and a sizzling video
    Love At First Sight - what a great pop moment
    I Believe In You - not a big fan of this, but it was the height of her imperial phase 2000-2003

    I opted for JNSPP simply because it came within a few hundred copies of Enya at no.1.

    Honorable mention to CIM as Decon inexplicably deleted the first CD single so there were no CD singles available on the most important weekend of her comeback.

    Honorable mention to IBIY as it was kept off by the most horrendous, smug, self indulgent version of Do They Know It's Christmas.

    Sorry to be pedantic, but the record came out in 2004!

    It's not on the list but Got To Be Certain was also robbed by a charity single.

    Although it got to number 1, it's worth mentioning that Hand On Your Heart was robbed of being the first single by a female soloist to enter at number 1 because cassette singles didn't count for the charts at the time.

    All The Lovers - Just at number 2. Could have hit number 1 with few hundred copies more sold.

    the fact that 3 of my most favorite Kylie songs didn't reach #1 is.....frustrating to say the least.
    Devil, Confide & LAFS all deserved to go #1
    ....but i voted for LAFS because that is my most favorite of all things Kylie.
