    Default Additional IP Single?

    Imagine IP had a 4th worldwide Single (after Breathe and before the OZ-only Cowboy Style), Summer 1998, would you have loved to get Too Far (corresponding to the Mixes / Impossible Remixes and to the TFAR1 Promo 12 releases) (I would have), or another song, or none?

    Too Far would have been great promo for the I & L tour

    Even Woolworths in the UK at the time thought it'd be a great single!

    Thanks for your thoughts!
    It also leaves me the feeling that TF was very close to be an actual Single.

    Too Far definitely. But Dreams also could've been a nice change of style.

    I think Too Far, I Don't Need Anyone and This Girl are the only relevant options. They did a good job with choosing the singles, because the second half of the album definitely has a more experimental approach than the first one, and not radio-friendly at all.

    Too Far with iconic video! Sounds like a BATMAN theme.

    Too Far must have been seriously considered given the remixes. I remember a rumour about the video concept where KM was a killer robot or something like that. This mix is just epic. One of BIR's finest. Still takes me away today:



    Is this true (from Wiki but is sourced):

    Following the release of Impossible Princess, popular reception towards "Too Far" and demand for a release soon prompt Deconstruction to announce the track as the album's fourth single. However, Minogue's distribution label Sony BMG released "Too Far" themselves, both as a promotional vinyl and airplay single in the UK on 21 May 1998, and later North America on 26 May[7][8], her first single released in the US since her 1994 hit "Confide in Me".[9] The song in its original album length was only released as airplay and excluded from the 12" release, instead it being occupied by two new remixes commissioned by Brothers In Rhythm and Junior Vasquez. Deconstruction then called off the single's promotion, and refused to promote it further after BMG released it without discussion.[3]
