Kylie Minogue & Dannii Minogue - 100 Degrees

"100 Degrees" is a song by Kylie Minogue, with her sister Dannii Minogue. The track was the second single from Kylie's album Kylie Christmas (2015). It was released on 13 November 2015 by Parlophone and Warner Bros. Records. An alternate version of the song was released on 1 April 2016, "100 Degrees (Still Disco to Me)", without the word "Christmas".

Kylie announced that the song would serve as the second single during The X Factor Australia on 16 November. She also confirmed that she would perform the track, alongside Dannii, on the season 7 grand final on 24 November. In a statement, Kylie said: "I'll be bringing a little Christmas cheer to The X Factor stage, I can't wait to come home and perform on the show with Dannii". The performance was their first performance together since their live performance of "Kids" on her Homecoming tour in 2006, and the first televised performance together since they performed "Sisters Are Doin' It for Themselves" on Young Talent Time in 1986.

Background

In November 2015, Kylie released "Only You", a duet with James Corden, as the lead single from her first holiday album Kylie Christmas; it was announced that the duet with Dannii, "100 Degrees" would be released as the second single from the album; the song was re-recorded and released under the name "100 Degrees (Still Disco to Me)" in April 2016.

Kylie wrote "100 Degrees" about adapting to a winter Christmas in the UK after being raised in Australia and was inspired by Donna Summer's vintage disco classics. Dannii said; "There's not enough party Christmas songs, everyone has Christmas parties, but what music do you put on? This song is perfect for dancing to. And our X Factor performance is going to be all guns blazing. And by guns, I mean glitter guns. It's going to be a very sparkly, very Minogue Christmas."

The song was used by Target Australia for their Christmas commercials. The adverts starred Dannii Minogue, who has a fashion line with Target Australia.

Music video

The music video sees the pair recording the song and having fun in the studio, surrounded by tinsel, with Dannii donning 'Disco Christmas' T-shirt & Kylie donning a 'Kylie Kissmass' T-shirt.

Reception

Mike Wass from Idolator said that "100 Degrees" was the album's highlight. Wass said "The siblings inject a whole lot of fabulous into the festive season with disco-tinged anthem" adding, "the duet is every bit as camp as you would expect."

Lyrics

All around the world
Anticipation
'Cause here it comes again (You see)
No matter where you are
It could be near or far
But it still feels like Christmas time to me

I tell you what you already know
Forget and ready to let it go
The countdown has begun
Whether you're in the mmh
North, South, it's all the same
Let your troubles fade away
Get ready to love everyone

Whether the sun beats down
Or there's a storm around
Whether the snow falls or
It’s 100 degrees
It’s still Christmas to me

Oh, we're gonna dance tonight
Oh, let the temperature rise to 100 degrees
To a hundred, hundred, hundred degrees
Don't you know you just can't get enough?
Gonna keep heating it up to 100 degrees
To a hundred, hundred, hundred degrees

Can you feel the heat on the floor?
Really gets you wanting some more
Let's make it never ending tonight

Whether the sun beats down
Or there's a storm around
Whether the snow falls or
It’s 100 degrees
It’s still Christmas to me

Oh, we're gonna dance tonight
Oh, let the temperature rise to 100 degrees
To a hundred, hundred, hundred degrees
Don't you know you just can't get enough?
Gonna keep heating it up to 100 degrees
To a hundred, hundred, hundred degrees

Mulled wine or cocktail time
Oh, we're loving all the fairy lights
Everyone's got a different way
But we all want the same
We want disco nights

Hundred, hundred, hundred
Hundred, hundred, hundred
Hundred, hundred, hundred degrees
It's still Christmas to me

Oh, we're gonna dance tonight
Oh, let the temperature rise to 100 degrees
To a hundred, hundred, hundred degrees
Don't you know you just can't get enough?
Gonna keep heating it up to 100 degrees
To a hundred, hundred, hundred degrees

It's still disco (disco)
Disco to me

I tell you what you already know
Forget and ready to let it go
The countdown has begun
Whether you're in the mmh
North, South, it's all the same
Let your troubles fade away
Get ready to love everyone

Whether the sun beats down
Or there's a storm around
Whether the snow falls or
It’s 100 degrees
It’s still disco to me

Oh, we're gonna dance tonight
Oh, let the temperature rise to 100 degrees
To a hundred, hundred, hundred degrees
Don't you know you just can't get enough?
Gonna keep heating it up to 100 degrees
To a hundred, hundred, hundred degrees

Can you feel the heat on the floor?
Really gets you wanting some more
Let's make it neverending tonight

Whether the sun beats down (sun beats down)
Or there's a storm around (storm around)
Whether the snow falls or
It’s 100 degrees
It’s still disco to me

Oh, we're gonna dance tonight
Oh, let the temperature rise to 100 degrees
To a hundred, hundred, hundred degrees
Don't you know you just can't get enough?
Gonna keep heating it up to 100 degrees
To a hundred, hundred, hundred degrees

I can't wait 'til cocktail time
When we're dancing under neon lights
Everyone's got a different way
But we all want the same
We want disco night

Disco, disco, (disco), disco to me
Disco, disco, (disco), disco to me
It's still disco
It’s still disco to me

Oh, we're gonna dance tonight
Oh, let the temperature rise to 100 degrees
To a hundred, hundred, hundred degrees
Don't you know you just can't get enough?
Gonna keep heating it up to 100 degrees
To a hundred, hundred, hundred degrees
