  • Flower was written for X but made it's release on The Abbey Road Sessions several years later. It a beautiful ballad about motherhood.
    • Kylie's well over 40 and unmarried, she's probably well aware that she might never had a child, making the song all the more heartbreaking.
    • And think of it, it was written during her cancer ordeal... She might've written the song as her way of facing the fact that she could die without ever having a child.
  • No World Without You from Let's Get to It is pretty heartbreaking, especially if you've ever lost someone close to your heart.
