the first time I really remember a Kylie song was
many years ago and that song was the Loco Motion. It
was on a disco CD which we had in the house.
Sufficed to say I didn't know quite who Kylie
Minogue was at the time. Apart from the band
Erasure whom I have loved since 1997 to this
present day my other love was 'pure power pop' and
so I was into bands like Steps, Scooch and S Club 7.
However by June of 2000 I was fully aware of Kylie
due to the success of Light Years. I LOVED Spinning
Around in particular. However when Can't Get You Out
Of My Head was released I started to dislike her
music and her on stage style ... the exception being Love At First Sight.
by mid 2004 I had got my hands on her classic PWL
material and had fallen in love with the whole lot.
My favourite tracks were Hand On Your Heart and What
Kind Of Fool.
November 2005, whilst watching TV one Saturday
evening I caught a glimpse of Kylie performing the
classic 'Spinning Around' on Children in Need and I
was hooked. Kylie looked stunning in
that beautiful pink dress and that was the moment when I
realised how stunning she looked on stage - but
since LAFS, there was not a Kylie song that I had
changed when I heard 'I Believe In You'. Never had a
pop song sounded so perfect and so well done.
Sufficed to say that was enough to get me to
purchase Ultimate Kylie and I began to enjoy her
other Parlophone work such as Red Blooded Woman and,
at last, Can't Get You Out Of My Head.
