BBC Radio 2 wants to know your favourite Kylie songs

BBC Radio 2 has launched a listener vote to discover Your Ultimate Kylie Song.

This comes ahead of Kylie Minogue’s headline set at Radio 2 in the Park in Leicester on Sunday 17 September.

You can cast up to five votes for your favourite Kylie songs that have charted in the Top 100, which also includes songs where she is a featured artist or part of a duet. The vote closes at 4pm on Friday 4 August.

The results will be revealed in a countdown chart, Your Ultimate Kylie Song, presented by Steve Wright on BBC Sounds from Monday 21 August and broadcast on Radio 2 on Monday 28 August from 4-7pm.

Kylie said: “The UK audiences have been so supportive through the years and I’m looking forward to hearing whether their number one track will be a newer track or a classic!”

Steve Wright said: “Kylie is an incredible artist and an icon. I’ve been a huge fan since the ‘80s – playing her songs on my shows, introducing her on Top Of The Pops and interviewing her on radio and TV. I can’t wait to host Your Ultimate Kylie Song and find out what songs YOU love the most.”

Helen Thomas, Head of Radio 2 added: “Radio 2 listeners have loved Kylie since her chart debut in 1987 so, as she’s headlining Sunday night at Radio 2 in the Park, we wanted to give them this opportunity to pick their favourite song from her amazing back catalogue. The countdown show will be a delight!”

Kylie Minogue will headline the Sunday night of Radio 2 in the Park with her first live UK full concert performance for four years.
