"Take Me With You" is a song by Kylie Minogue, recorded sometime during the 1990s during the sessions for her sixth studio album Impossible Princess (1997).

Background and composition
"Take Me With You" was written by Kylie and Steve Anderson some time in the 1990s during the early sessions for Impossible Princess (1997). The song was not included on the album, but did appear on several compilation albums in the late 90s. Production for the song was handled by Brothers in Rhythm, who were responsible for a lot of Kylie's tracks in the 90s.
At a running time of nine minutes and eleven seconds, "Take Me With You" is Kylie's longest track; the edit was shortened down to six minutes and thirty four seconds. The song is set at a tempo of 87 beats per minute in the key of Db minor.
"Take Me With You" was written during the sessions for Impossible Princess (1997), during the time that the project was recorded as a Brothers in Rhythm exclusive; however, this experimental material scared DeConstruction, so recording sessions were extended to find more commercial material; "Take Me With You" was on the original albums track listing, but when things changed, the song was not on the final track listing.
Accompanying the release of Impossible Princess in Australia in 1998, a three-track EP, entitled Other Sides was released; this contained the two existing B-sides from the Impossible Princess singles and "Take Me With You". The song also later appeared on the 2000 compilation album Hits+, which included the seven singles released under DeConstruction, apart from "Cowboy Style", plus outtakes from the era, including "Take Me With You".
