"Burning Up" is a song by Kylie Minogue, taken from her eighth studio album Fever (2001). The song was written and produced by Tom Nichols and Greg Fitzgerald, and appears as the final track on the standard edition of the album
Background and compositionEdit
"Burning Up" was described as a "slow-burn" disco song, that is an example of the disco-influenced production of the album, along with album opener "More More More".
Musically, "Burning Up" is a disco song written in the key of F-sharp minor; the song talks about a lover seducing Kylie, describing how he makes her pulse pump and heart race.
"Burning Up" first made an appearance on Kylie's Fever Tour, where it served as the first song of the penultimate section; here, Kylie was lifted some twenty feet above the stage with a large red dress covering 12 dancers beneath her; the song preceded a performance of "Better the Devil You Know". The song then made an appearance on the Homecoming Tour in 2006, where it was mashed up with Madonna's "Vogue" as an interlude. This was the same on the For You, For Me tour in 2009, which was Kylie's first tour in North America.
