"No World Without You"
"I Guess I Like It Like That"

"I Guess I Like It Like That" is a song by Kylie Minogue from her fourth studio album Let's Get to It (1991). The song was written by Kylie, Mike Stock and Pete Waterman, with other credits coming from Phil Wilde and Jean-Paul de Coster due to the song sampling 2 Unlimited's "Get Ready For This" written by the two. The song also samples Freestyle Orchestra's "Keep On Pumping It Up" and the Salt-N-Pepa song "I Like It Like That".


During this time, Kylie was fascinated by club music. Although her music was always played in commercial clubs, but the pop element of her earlier works made the "cooler clubs" tend to "frown upon." Minogue then created an alias for herself as "Angel K," set about releasing white label promotional vinyl's of tracks included "Do You Dare?" and "Closer", both of the songs later appeared as B-sides on "Give Me Just a Little More Time" and "Finer Feelings", respectively.

Critical receptionEdit

Nathan Wood from Foxtel's MaxTV called the song "surprising", claimed it "signaled Kylie's change from a pop princess to an artist with diverse, genre-pushing tastes, and paved the way for her extensive exploration into the world of dance music that would come later." Digital Spy's Nick Levine stated he "has even fallen for the 2 Unlimited sample." However, Chris True from Allmusic criticized the stadium keyboard part that lays the foundation of the song, called it one of album's "noticeable missteps." Nick Griffiths from Select gave a mixed review on the track, called the song "impressive but blatant clubdom."

Live performancesEdit

Kylie performed the song in full during the Let's Get to It Tour which was launched to promote Let's Get to It. Excerpts of the song were then used in the Smiley Kylie medley during the Showgirl tour and during the Everything Taboo medley in both the Homecoming and For You, For Me tours.
