Kylie Minogue - All I See

Kylie Minogue - All I See

"All I See" is a song recorded by Kylie Minogue for her tenth studio album, X (2007). The song was written by Jonas Jeberg, Mich Hedin Hansen, Edwin "Lil' Eddie" Serrano and produced by Jeberg and Cutfather. It was released digitally as a lead single in North America on 11 March 2008. The song was released to American radio formats on 15 April 2008. A version featuring rapper Mims was released to radio formats and included as a bonus track on the American edition of X. Musically, the song is a R&B song. The song contains an interpolation from Gap Band's "Outstanding", which was written by Raymond Calhoun.

Release

To promote the single and the album in the United States, Kylie appeared on various television programmes. On 31 March 2008, she appeared on the Today show for an interview with Matt Lauer. On 1 April, she performed "All I See" live on Dancing with the Stars. On 7 April 2008, Kylie appeared and performed "All I See" on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The single was particularly released in the US and in Canada to boost Kylie's image in the States, as it appeared she had a low profile, but the song only managed to peak at number 3 in the US dance charts.

Critical response

"All I See" received generally mixed reviews from most music critics. Sal Cinquemani from Slant Magazine gave it an extended review. He said:

Minogue has churned out three singles from her album X since its international release last year, but it's another song, "All I See," that will be the record's official first single in the U.S. It's one of only three tracks that don't seem to fit the otherwise consistent Euro-disco mash-up of the singer's 10th studio album (the belated Ray of Light rip-off "No More Rain" and the Fergie/Gwen-meets-the-Pussycat-Dolls-meets-"SexyBack" monstrosity that is "Nu-Di-Ty" are the other offenders), but that's exactly why it's a perfect fit for this country. In his review of X, Slant critic Dave Hughes compared "All I See" to Janet Jackson's 1997 "Together Again," and while the breathy vocals are totally Janet, the rest of the song is a virtual carbon copy of Ne-Yo's "Because of You," right down to the measured 4/4 beat and harpsichord.

If radio programmers could find room on their playlists for Natasha Bedingfield's market-pandering "Love Like This," then surely they can find space for "All I See." Although a remix featuring MIMS will be serviced to radio stations soon, there's still no video in sight, so if the song fails, Minogue's American fans can blame her record label, which hasn't figured out how to market the superstar in the U.S. since "Can't Get You Out of My Head".

Music video

The promotional music video for "All I See" was directed by William Baker, Kylie's creative director. It was filmed in three hours while Kylie was on break from KylieX2008 tour rehearsals. Filmed in black-and-white, it features Kylie in various outfits and dancer Marco da Silva dancing in front of a white background. The video premiered on Kylie's website on 18 April 2008.

Lyrics

Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh

Weekend has arrived
Everybody's tryna find something to get into
My friends wanna go out, but I can't cancel my plans
Got a date with my baby
He's picking me up, so I'm gonna catch up with you
Some other day, gotta go
Can't make him wait tonight

Have to make sure I'm looking hot
'Cause we're going to our favorite spot
Till the morning we're gonna rock
Boy, you knock me out, yeah

My baby
Doesn't matter what's going on or who's around us
All I see is you
Right now they're playing our song, dance floor is ours
All I see is you
The DJ's got me feeling like I did when I first met you
And there's nothing that can break us apart in two
'Cause all I see is you (Is you, is you, is you, is you)

I get lost in time when I'm looking in your eyes
And we're body to body
I don't want you to rush
'Cause you're feeling like heaven to me
Follow the rhythm and keep it real close
In the dark, everything goes
Nothing's better than your touch
Don't stop, baby, 'cause we've just begun

Have to make sure I'm looking hot
'Cause we're going to our favorite spot
Till the morning we're going to rock
Boy, you knock me out, yeah

My baby
Doesn't matter what's going on or who's around us
All I see is you
Right now they're playing our song, dance floor is ours
All I see is you
The DJ's got me feeling like I did when I first met you
And there's nothing that can break us apart in two
'Cause all I see is you

Oh, oh, oh
Please don't let me go
My love for you's growing more and more and more
As we move across the floor, oh, oh
'Cause all I see is you (Is you, is you, is you, is you)
'Cause all I see is you (Is you, is you, is you)
DJ, spin my record again

My baby
Doesn't matter what's going on or who's around us
All I see is you
Right now they're playing our song, dance floor is ours
All I see is you
The DJ's got me feeling like I did when I first met you
And there's nothing that can break us apart in two
'Cause all I see is you
My baby
Doesn't matter what's going on or who's around us
All I see is you
Right now they're playing our song, dance floor is ours
All I see is you
The DJ's got me feeling like I did when I first met you
And there's nothing that can break us apart in two
'Cause all I see is you (Is you, is you, is you, is you)
