I must say she was one of the singers who attracted me to the 80's.
Just watched her on the rip-roaring, Graham Norton Show with Spiderman Tom Holland, gorgeous couple Emily Blunt with hubby John Krasinski as petite birthday baby Kylie Minogue sang, Stop Me From Falling (video 1). At 50 she's turned 25. What a treat!
I was not familiar with 80's music until and after listening to Tina Turner, What's Love Got To Do With It, Dire Straits Sultan of Swings, George Michael's Wham, Wake Me Up Before You Go Go and Prince with his Purple Rain. I guess these songs took me across to the decade from the 70's.
But it was the chug-chug-chugging 60's number that introduced me to Ms Minogue, Little Eva's 1962 engine (video 2 below) and the new dance moves, Locomotion. Her 1987 version brought the attention I needed because I had just come home from Winnipeg, back to Singapore and listening to a new star from Australia. Then Can't Get You Out of My Head followed by her other hits.
Never seen her in Neighbours. Could be interesting though and never too late. Love her new song. And 80 million records sold is a big deal.
Hey, we're in 2018.
Hope you have a great birthday today Ms Minogue.
