KYLIE MINOGUE x KIM CARNES: BETTE DAVIES EYES



It took a lot of nerve for Kylie to release her last album 'Kiss Me Once' which was full of charisma (umm...), uniqueness (not really), talent (questionable) - not that I'm saying her tiny beauty didn't make up for how truly poor it was, but well, it didn't make up for how truly poor it was - and I'm pretty sure every sleep disorder clinic waiting room was empty on the day it was released.

So here she is making up for crimes to pop with her version of Kim Carnes‘ 1981 hit 'Bette Davis Eyes' as part of BBC Radio 2′s Sounds Of The ’80s series - yes, when I first heard Kylie had re-recorded the raspy-voiced ones rock homage to being a femme fatale, my head moved towards my hands too... but unbelievably she manages to churn out a synth-pop compliment to Kim which I really, really love.

Listen below, and when you're done with that, watch the original video HERE where Kim looks like she just left work in her power suit, pulled on some bejewelled gloves and fell into a New Romantic costume party. 
Oh, and #fashionfact for you, look out for a young Simon Doonan in the video (Creative Ambassador for Barneys NY, writer and fashion commentator), who pops up doing his best Adam Ant impression in a Westwood squiggle T-shirt and pirate hat.
