Groove of the Day/Kylie Minogue/”Can’t Get You Out of My Head”

Feel the Fev-ah. 

Yes, Kylie Kween, that’s absolutely what we felt and what we all still feel when it comes to the overseas dance diva’s sensual eighth studio album, Fever, which will be celebrating fifteen years next week since its stateside release. 

While opener, “More More More,” as well as glorious grooves, “Love at First Sight,” “Fragile,” “In Your Eyes,” “Dancefloor” and “Come into My World” still make us werk and serve for our Ms. Minogue lives, it’s today’s groove, “Can’t Get You Out of My Head,” that indeed, we still can’t get out of our heads or headphones. 

But really, why the f#$k would we want to? 

Still just as light and frothy as it ever was, the saturated-with-sass (and Cathy Dennis penned!) tune is always a fun romp with an equally cheeky accompanying video to boot. 

Or, should we say fancy white stiletto? Yes, Kylie Kween, yas. Now, watch.

That is…if you haven’t already fifty times today. 

This year’s grooves sound like…

Groove of the Day/Gloria Estefan/”The Rhythm Is Gonna Get You”

Brace yourselves.

Actually, scratch that…brace those feet because thirty years ago, Ms. Gloria Estefan served the world with Let It Loose, a Billboard chart destroying record that further cemented Ms. Estefan’s status as being that Latin crossover diva. 

While we could spill todos los dias de musica about this album and all of those delectable hits (“Betcha Say That,” 1-2-3,” “Anything for You,”), just have to let the infectious “The Rhythm Is Gonna Get You” sound it all off and give you another reason why the heat provided by Ms. Estefan and her mighty Miami Sound Machine (this was actually her first album labeled without them, although they do play on most of the tracks) will remain scorching until the very end of music time. 

Lucky for all of us, that’s about a quarter-to-never, so get on those feet and let all of the rhythms of Ms. Gloria get you. 

Because they will.
