Song of the Day - I Was Gonna Cancel - Kylie Minogue

Kylie Minogue's second single off of her new Kiss Me Once album was written and produced by Happy singer Pharrell Williams, with whom Kylie had wanted to work with for a long time.  The two finally met sometime in 2013 in Los Angeles and worked on two songs together, this one and another called The Winners.  The concept for this one came oddly enough at the time the two were supposed to meet.  Our heroine was having a really bad day, so much so that she was thinking of backing out of the meeting.  Voila! A song was born.

The tune is a little discoey, pleasant, and very catchy.  It's not nearly as good as the first single, Into the Blue, but the chorus definitely stays in your head for awhile after a listen.  Now I'm gonna be singing all day long...
