I went through years of rejection, and my first thing was ''Spinning Around'' for Kylie Minogue. I was thinking, "Kylie Minogue? Who's Kylie Minogue? I got to make some money or I'm going to have to go back to my real job." And then I saw her ass in the video and I was like, "OK, I like Kylie Minogue. I'm going to make some money here." - Kara DioGuardi (songwriter)
''The original demo of the song was a soul record. The musicians I was using on it were Rob Harris from Jamiroquai and Winston Blissett who played for Lisa Stansfield. We upped the tempo and made it into a disco record. We didn't know if it was necessarily the right thing to do, but it felt like a return to where she'd come from, back to what she does best." - Mike Spencer (producer)
"Jamie (her A&R man Jamie Nelson) went to New York and arrived back with this demo, waving his arms saying, 'I've got this great song here and I think it'd be perfect for you. We all listened to it and loved it straightaway, even in demo form it had something." - Kylie Minogue
