On a Night Like This (3:31)

Cover of Light Years

From Light Years and 45 other releases

“On a Night Like This” is a song by Australian singer Kylie Minogue, taken from her seventh studio album Light Years. It was released on 11 September 2000 as the second single from the album. The album version is slightly shorter than the music video version. The song was written by Steve Torch, Graham Stack, Mark Taylor and Brian Rawling and produced by Stack and Taylor. Musically, “On a Night Like This” is a dance-pop song, with elements of nu-disco and house while the lyrics are about a girl who wants to share her night with a boy on a specific night together.

The song received positive reviews from music critics, who felt it was a highlight from the album and potentially single-worthy. The accompanying music video was a concept based on the 1995 crime film Casino. The song charted at one and two on the Australian Singles Chart and UK Singles Chart and fared moderately worldwide.

The song was later re-recorded in 2011 at the Abbey Road Studios for inclusion on Minogue’s orchestral album The Abbey Road Sessions.

In 1998, Minogue’s contract with Deconstruction had ended, due in part to the relatively unsuccessful commercial turnout of the album Impossible Princess. The last single from that album “Cowboy Style” was released only in Australia by Mushroom Records to coincide with the Intimate and Live Tour. By 1999, Kylie Minogue had signed herself to the label Parlophone. She began recording songs for her seventh album Light Years, most notably the lead single “Spinning Around”, which became a number one hit and was considered her ‘comeback’ single.
