"On a Night Like This" is a song by Australian singer Kylie Minogue, taken from her seventh studio album Light Years. It was released on 11 September 2000 as the second single from the album. The album version is slightly shorter than the music video version. The song was written by Steve Torch, Graham Stack, Mark Taylor and Brian Rawling and produced by Stack and Taylor. Musically, "On a Night Like This" is a dance-pop song, with elements of nu-disco and house while the lyrics are about a girl who wants to share her night with a boy on a specific night together. The song received positive reviews from music critics, who felt it was a highlight from the album and potentially single-worthy. The accompanying music video was a concept based on the 1995 crime film Casino. The song charted at one and two on the Australian Singles Chart and UK Singles Chart and fared moderately worldwide. The song was later re-recorded in 2011 at the Abbey Road Studios for inclusion on Minogue's orchestral album The Abbey Road Sessions. In 1998, Minogue's contract with Deconstruction had ended, due in part to the relatively unsuccessful commercial turnout of the album Impossible Princess. The last single from that album "Cowboy Style" was released only in Australia by Mushroom Records to coincide with the Intimate and Live Tour. By 1999, Kylie Minogue had signed herself to the label Parlophone. She began recording songs for her seventh album Light Years, most notably the lead single "Spinning Around", which became a number one hit and was considered her 'comeback' single. On 24 February 2012, Minogue premiered a video of her performing the song on her YouTube channel. It was then revealed that Minogue would be recording a compilation album for her K25 anniversary, which is an anniversary of her music career for spanning twenty-five years. The album, along with the song was recorded in London, England at Abbey Road Studios in November 2011. On October 24, she released The Abbey Road Sessions which included the reworked version of "On a Night Like This". Produced by Steve Anderson and Colin Elliot, the song was re-released as a single on 17 December 2012. In Minogue's native Australia the single debuted at number one, and spent two non-consecutive weeks there. It spent a total of seventeen weeks in the top fifty, becoming one of Minogue's longest charting singles. As with her previous number one single "Spinning Around", "On a Night Like This" was also certified platinum and became the twenty-seventh most successful single of the year 2000 in Australia. The song led to Minogue being honoured as the artist having the most singles debuting at number one. It also gave her a record for having the largest fall from the number one position—falling to number five. It was also successful in the United Kingdom where it peaked at number two, behind Modjo's "Lady (Hear Me Tonight)". It revived to have modest success elsewhere. In New Zealand, the song debuted at number forty, until rising to thirty-five where it peaked. The song then debuted at number thirty-three in Sweden, until it rose to thirty-one, staying there for two consecutive weeks. The song became less successful in other countries. The song survived only one week in Finland, debuting at number twenty. The song also only peaked at number sixty-nine in France and sixty-four in the Netherlands. The music video for "On a Night Like This" was directed by Douglas Avery, filmed in Monte Carlo, and was loosely based on Martin Scorsese's 1995 crime drama movie Casino, with Kylie herself portraying a character loosely based on Sharon Stone's bored trophy wife, and Blade Runner actor Rutger Hauer portraying her mob boss partner. The video starts with a mob-related scene, with the men speaking in French. The video translates with subtitles "Matters are not handled in this way/Here in Monte Carlo/Things are closely watched/The authorities are extremely vigilant/The things you ask of us/Are not so easy". As the song starts, Minogue is on a diving board over a pool; she jumps in with while wearing an expensive Versace. After she sings the chorus, she undresses into her underwear, and looking at the mobsters, throws her dress across towards their window. As the second verse starts, she appears in another Versace costume, with expensive diamond jewellery, in a Limousine. As the chorus arrives, she appears in a Monte Carlo casino, and wins money. She later goes home, where her mob boss lover sees her, as she comes into the hallway and smashes a green glass vase. As the song ends she steps onto a porch, undresses again, and he can only stare. The video ends with her stepping down from the porch, and fades to black. While the video enjoyed moderate success in most of the world, it still managed to attract considerable controversy. According to reports by NME, the original clip supposedly contained scenes that would have resulted in a mass banning. The Directors Cut had been noted to contain Minogue in full-frontal nudity, however, NME reported that plans to release such a music video were scrapped. Despite this, the edited version still turns heads, thanks to a see-through dress sported by Kylie.


Kylie Minogue (born May 28, 1968, in Melbourne, Australia) is an Australian pop singer who rose to fame after starring in the Australian TV soap Neighbours.

Throughout the late 1980s, Minogue was a phenomenon in both Australia and the UK, and also saw success in Asia and Europe. Show more ...
