"Too Far" is a song by Kylie Minogue, taken from her sixth studio album Impossible Princess (1997). It was written and produced by Kylie, with additional production credits to Brothers in Rhythm. The song is a drum and bass song where Kylie describes her anger and frustration through its lyrics. It contains elements of club music and breakbeat music, and employs spoken word techniques. The Brothers in Rhythm remix was released as the lead and only single from Kylie's remix compilation, Mixes (1998), on 21 May 1998 by record label Sony BMG.

Critical reception towards "Too Far" has been universally acclaimed; some critics favoured its commercial appeal, while some felt it was one of Kylie's best dance tracks. Critics have highlighted it as an album and career stand out. "Too Far" failed to chart on any record charts, and no music video was directed. Kylie has performed the track on two of her concert tours; Intimate and Live Tour and Showgirl: The Homecoming Tour, and has been included on her greatest hits albums including Artist Collection (2004) and Confide in Me: The Irresistible Kylie (2007).

Live PerformancesEdit

Kylie included "Too Far" on a musical medley that contained several songs from her back catalog on the Mushroom 25 Live Tour on 14 November 1998; it was later included on a live CD release. The song opened the Intimate and Live Tour, which was launched in 1998 to promote Impossible Princess; it featured the extended drum intro from the Brothers in Rhythm Mix. The song was also performed on the Homecoming Tour. In 2005, Kylie went on her Showgirl: The Greatest Hits Tour. Minogue was unable to complete the tour as she was diagnosed with early breast cancer and had to cancel the Australian leg of the tour. After undergoing treatment and recovery, she resumed the concert tour in the form of Showgirl: The Homecoming Tour in 2007, and included "Too Far" on the setlist; it was featured at the end of the "Samsara" section, following performances of "Confide in Me", "Cowboy Style" and an interlude of "Finer Feelings"; the song was featured on the live albums of both concert tours.
