"Where Is the Feeling?" is a song by Australian recording artist and songwriter Kylie Minogue, taken from her fifth studio album Kylie Minogue (1994). The song was written by Wilf Smarties and Jayn Hanna, while production was handled by Brothers in Rhythm. It was released on 10 July 1995 as the third and final single from her self-titled album Kylie Minogue.

Commercially, the song did fairly well, peaking at number 31 in Australia, and becoming a Top 20 hit in the United Kingdom. The song has only been performed on the KylieFever2002 Tour, where it was featured in "The Crying Game Ballad Medley".

Background[edit]

The song, originally a club hit for Within a Dream in 1993 was initially planned as the second single from Minogue's eponymous 1994 album, although it nearly didn't make the album's final cut at all. It was postponed for the release of "Put Yourself in My Place". The single was then scheduled for release in April 1995 but delayed until July while Minogue completed filming on the movie Bio-Dome.[1] The single version was radically remixed, making it almost entirely unrecognisable from its original album version. Minogue, along with BIR wrote additional lyrics for an extended version of the trip hop influcenced single, called 'Where Is The Feeling (BIR Soundtrack.) The lyrics were an early experiment to help Minogue in finding courage to write personal material, which she wanted to explore on her next album Impossible Princess.

Reception[edit]

It was considered Minogue's least successful single at the time. The single only managed to chart in two countries, these being Australia and the United Kingdom. The song debuted at number thirty-one on the Australian Singles Chart, but slipped to number thirty-eight, staying in the charts for a total of three weeks. To date, this remained Minogue's lowest and weakest-spanning solo single, until "In My Arms" replaced the status, where it peaked at number thirty-five and stayed in the charts for two weeks.[2]

In the United Kingdom, the song debuted at number sixteen on the UK Singles Chart, until descending to number sixty-three, staying in the charts for three weeks. Despite reaching the Top 20 national UK singles chart, the single did not spend long in the Top 75; only three weeks. Minogue's 2008 single "The One" stayed in the charts for three weeks, also, though did not even reach the UK Top 30.[3]

Deconstruction originally planned to accompany the song with two single releases, but it was reduced to only one CD due to new chart regulations, thus explaining the cover photo with two superimposed images of Kylie.[4]

Music video[edit]

The song's music video was directed by Keir McFarlane, who previously collaborated with Minogue in "Put Yourself in My Place." The video featuring Minogue writhing in a pool disguised as the ocean and kissing an unnamed lover while using a re-recorded version of the song remixed by Brothers in Rhythm.
