Six songs are taken from her debut, hardly surprising, as that album went diamond worldwide (10 mill. copies sold). Her cover of Little Eva's "The Locomotion" spent 7 weeks at #1 in Australia, her home, and darned if her cover outdid that of the original and Jackie and the Raindrops' rendition. The equally infectious "I Should Be So Lucky," simultaneously at #1 in the UK and Australia, broke her worldwide, while I first heard of Kylie via her UK #2 hit "Got To Be Certain." "Je Ne Sais Pas Pourquoi" French for I Don't Know Why, was another UK #2, and "Turn It Into Love" went to #1 in Japan.
From Enjoy Yourself, we have her first hit duet, the ballad "Especially For You," sung with Jason Donovan, which was the UK's first #1 song of 1989, the #1 UK "Hand On Your Heart," classic S-A-W, "Wouldn't Change A Thing," the vivacious "Never Too Late," and her cover of Little Anthony and the Imperials' "Tears On My Pillow."
The singles from Rhythm Of Love continue the formula, especially with "Better The Devil You Know," a song later covered by Welsh group Steps, and with its "I wanna funk, I wanna F-F-F U-N-K" intro and vivacious beat, "Step Back In Time," replete with references to 70's soul titles and even the O'Jays. "Shocked" became Kylie's 13th hit and 13th Top Ten single in the UK.Read more ›
Nobody who was around in Britain in the late eighties will ever forget the chorus line of her first hit (one of several British number one records) - I should be so lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky - it's the kind of song you either love or hate. Many hate it, and I sometimes feel I ought to - but no, I love it. There was always something about Kylie, even then, that set her apart as something special.
Most of these songs were written and/or produced by Stock, Aitken and Waterman. There are a few covers and it was two of these - Locomotion (the Little Eva sixties classic) and Tears on my pillow (the Little Anthony fifties classic) - that aroused my interest in Kylie's music. They are both brilliant - indeed, Locomotion provided Kylie with her only huge American hit during this period. As to Tears on my pillow, I've heard several versions. Kylie should be proud of her cover, which gave her another huge hit. Give me just a little more time (Chairmen of the board) and Celebration (Kool and the gang) provide further evidence of Kylie's ability to revive oldies and take them high up the charts.Read more ›
