Kylie Minogue & Jack Savoretti - Music's Too Sad Without You

"Music's Too Sad Without You" is a song by Kylie Minogue from her fourteenth studio album Golden (2018), featuring Jack Savoretti. The song was written by Kylie, Jack and its producer Samuel Dixon. The song was released as the fifth single from Golden, with the radio edit premiering on BBC Radio 2 on 13 October. "Music's Too Sad Without You" is a ballad with elements of indie pop and chamber pop, backed by a piano and acoustic guitars. Lyrically, the song is about the painful effects of losing somebody. Jack included a live performance of the song on his sixth studio album, Singing to Strangers (2019).

Background

"Music's Too Sad Without You" was written by Kylie, Jack and Samuel Dixon, whilst produced by Dixon; it was originally written and performed for a film entitled Halal Daddy, and first made an appearance in low quality on the trailer for the film; the song was written and recorded before Kylie's two week trip to Nashville, owing therefore to the lack of the country element that it's parent album has been noted for. Lyrically the song deals with inability to listen to certain songs due to the absence of the significant other.

Kylie and Jack both teased at the song's music video, posting stills on social media. A day later, Kylie announced the song as the fifth and final single from Golden, with the radio edit of the song premiering on 13 October 2018 on BBC Radio 2. The song has been described as a country-tinged ballad.

Music video

The music video for the song was filmed in Venice, Italy. It premiered on 15 October 2018, and features scenes of Kylie and Jack in a theatre.

Live performances

"Music's Too Sad Without You" was included on the set list for the Kylie Presents: Golden shows, with both Kylie and Jack performing the song. The song was also performed as part of the Venice Jazz Festival in July 2018.[7] On 10 November 2018, Kylie and Jack performed the song on The Jonathan Ross Show. On 24 November 2018, they performed the song on Michael McIntyre's Big Show.

Lyrics

I know what you were feeling
When you played me that song
Gave every word meaning
You showed me a place we belonged

And we laughed and we danced and we never looked back
Nothing would get in our way
And you showed me the meaning of love and romance
With every song that you played

Now the music's too sad without you
Silence is all I can listen to now
I can't sing along to the songs like I used to
The music's too sad when you're not around

I remember that feeling
The songs that you played
You felt like home
So why am I leaving?
Memories made
Leaving you all alone

'Cause we laughed and we danced and we never looked back
Nothing would get in our way
And you showed me the meaning of love and romance
I miss the song that you played

The music's too sad without you
Silence is all I can listen to now
I can't sing along to the songs like I used to
The music's too sad when you're not around

So I listen to the wind in the trees
The sound of the air
Your voice is lost in the breeze
When you're not there
(The songs that you played)

The music's too sad without you
(The songs that you played)
The music's too sad without you
Oooh
(The songs that you played)
The music's too sad
