CAN´T GET YOU OUT OF MY HEAD-KYLIE MINOGUE


"Can't Get You out of My Head" is a dance-pop song recorded by Australian singer-songwriter Kylie Minogue for her eighth studio album Fever (2001). It was written and produced by Cathy Dennis and Rob Davis. Released as the album's lead single in the third quarter of 2001 (see 2001 in music), it reached number one in 40 countries and has sold over four million copies worldwide. The song became Minogue's first U.S. top-ten single in thirteen years and is recognised as Minogue's signature song. In Kylie's biography the song's chart history is cited in describing it as Minogue's most successful hit to date.
The accompanying music video for "Can't Get You Out Of My Head" was directed by Dawn Shadforth. It shows Minogue driving towards a futuristic city and back-up dancers in various futuristic costumes dancing in a highly stylized manner. It then focuses on Minogue in a sporty outfit, after which she is seen with other dancers in a computer-generated futuristic city. Her white, hooded costume, with plunging necklines and revealing slits, was widely discussed both for its fashion style and for Minogue's overt sexual posturing. Lastly, she appears with a curly hairdo in a metal-like costume. The metallic flapper dress is a tribute to Róisín Murphy's dress in Shadforths videoclip for Moloko's "Sing It Back".The dancers wear red and black costumes synonymous with the German electronic band Kraftwerk and the dance troupe also bares a striking resemblance to those backing dancers present on Madonna's Drowned Worled tour from 2001, the placing of headphones on their heads and robotic movements draw inspiration from the Music/funk segment of the tour. Later in his book La La La, William Baker conceeded that the robotic dance within the video was purposely developed to give Minogue an association with a dance the way Madonna had developed an association with Vogueing, he felt that at this stage in her career it was important for Minogue to set trends and not follow them the way Madonna had before her.

In 2002, the video won the MTV Video Music Award for Best Choreography. It was voted the third best video of all time by viewers of MTV Italy
