Links Are Dead - I Know

I keep getting Emails from people asking me to re-upload the links and music etc. I think people are just getting to those particular pages so are not reading the reason for the dead links.

So I am putting this in place so hopefully people will read it and stop Emailing me about it.

The reason the links are dead is that my account with Media Fire has been closed with all 11,000 files lost. That is why you can not download the things and No I can not re-upload them.

Eventually I will start doing that again when I have found something suitable. In the meantime this blog will be information only blog.

Thank you all

Kylie Minogue - I Should Be So Lucky

After the success of her debut single 'Locomotion' in Australia, Minogue traveled to London to work with Stock, Aitkin and Waterma.

They knew little of Minogue and had forgotten that she was arriving; as a result, they wrote 'I Should Be So Lucky' in forty minutes while she waited outside the recording studio. Mike Stock wrote the lyrics for the song in response to what he had learned about Minogue prior to her arrival. He believed that although she was a successful soap star in Australia and very talented, there must be something wrong with her and figured that she must be unlucky in love.

Minogue recorded the song in less than an hour, which Stock attributes to her good ear for music and her quick memorization skills. After Minogue finished the recording session she returned home to Australia to continue work on the soap Neighbours.

The music video was directed by Chris Langman and filmed in November 1987 at Channel 7 Studios in Melbourne, Australia. The video features Minogue walking through her home, with scenes of her dancing in front of a colourful chalkboard background intercut throughout. It presented a cute, wholesome, young "girl next door" image of Minogue to the public, with scenes of her giggling and making funny faces to the camera.

'I Should Be So Lucky' entered the UK Singles Chart on 9 January 1988 at number ninety, before rising to number one. It maintained the number one position for five weeks and became the third biggest selling single of the year with sales of 672,568. In Australia, the song reached number one on the single chart and became the country's highest selling single of 1988. In the United States, the song peaked at number twenty-eight on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Minogue's first US top forty release.
