|Light Years track listing|
"Bittersweet Goodbye" is a song by Kylie Minogue from her seventh studio album Light Years (2000). The song was written by Kylie and her long-time musical director Steve Anderson, who also produced the song.
The song was written and recorded during the sessions for Light Years, and was apparently written about Kylie's late ex-boyfriend Michael Hutchence. The song appears as the ninth song on the album.
The only ballad to appear on Light Years, "Bittersweet Goodbye" is set in B minor and features only a piano and string instruments to accompany Kylie. She uses a soft tone and her range reaches very high notes throughout the song.
The only time Kylie has ever performed "Bittersweet Goodbye" was during the Anti Tour, which was a tour put together as part of the K25 celebrations in 2012, which celebrated Kylie's twenty-fifth year in the music industry. The tour's set list featured songs that had not ever, or rarely had been performed live in Kylie's career, as well as B-sides and demos.
