"Got to Be Certain" is a song by Australian recording artist and songwriter Kylie Minogue from her debut studio album Kylie (1988). It was written and produced by Stock, Aitken and Waterman, who also produced Minogue's first four albums. The song was released as the second single from Kylie in most territories outside Australia and was released on 2 May 1988 in the UK. "Got to Be Certain" was Minogue's third single release in Australia, on 20 June 1988.
The music video for "Got to Be Certain" was directed by Chris Langman and filmed in April 1988. The video was filmed around Melbourne in Australia. The video starts off with Minogue at a photoshoot, posing in different poses. It then shows her walking around Melbournes Yarra River. Then, it features Minogue on top of the T&G (now KPMG) Building on Melbourne's Collins Street, where it featured her with "black boat-neck dress, white teeth gleaming, hair a perfect honey blonde and skin as gold as the coins that were piling in".
It then eventually featured Minogue on a carousel that apparently "hadn't been oiled since Kylie was born". She was wearing a skin-tight red T-shirt dress with a pin bearing the work "amour". Additionally, Four different edits were made, combining shots of Kylie on a merry-go-round, in an artist's studio and dancing in a coffee-house, which is the official video.
There are two other version of the music video. The "Original Version" features scenes of Minogue in an artist's studio rather than a photoshoot. The "Location Only" version is again a different edit with only the outdoor shots. These include Minogue with the Melbourne skyline in the background, walking through a park, on a Carousel and walking along the waterfront. Both versions were made available as extras on the 2002 Greatest Hits DVD.
