Seems like a proper good egg and quietly reinvented herself a couple times whilst releasing some great tracks.

Kids is one of the worst tracks of all time though.

A 3 from me, might go up to a 4. Like jordan said, seems like a thoroughly good person and there’s a list of bangers as long as your arm, but a lot of them never clicked with me as much as some other pop artists. Can’t really be understated how bold a move going from SAW pure pop to working with Nick Cave, Manics etc was at the time and then staging a full on comeback again with Spinning Around etc so gains a point for that. Fuck it, 4 it is.

Absolute nailed on 3. No big opinions

She has two songs called Love at First Sight, but the one we all know is an absolute banger.

Great memories of hearing lots that during Town Centre Initiative Week in year 9.

Can’t Get You Out of My Head is one of the best songs ever.

Still freaks my nut out that Emiliana Torrini wrote Slow

Don’t know her albums at all but what a singles artist. Ive still got loads of her early 7"s which my mum gave me. I remember when ‘Confide in Me’ came out, great tune and it seemed like a big deal at the time going for such a darker, edgier sound. She also has the charm that i bemoaned Madonna lacking in her thread so i’ll give her a 4.

Kylie Minogue is maker of popular music. Her hits are less irritating than some other hits, except for Kids, which I would consider having voluntary temporal lobe surgery in order to forget. She turned down Hot Chip’s Ready for the Floor, but other than this seems to be a good human being.

Lovely person, lovely bottom, bad songs.

When I was about four I declared I was going to marry Kylie after seeing her on TOTP.

31 years later I still haven’t. 1/5.

The first artist I had posters of on my wall as a young girl - can’t believe she’s still going and looks incredible 30 years later. Legend.

5/5 just for the song Fever alone. One of my fav songs ever ever ever
And she seems so lovely
Contemplated marking her down because without her there’d be no Danii Minogue but in the words of Zazu from the lion king “there’s one in every family… two in mine” so we can’t hold it against her
Lovely kylie x

No way. Danni’s ‘Girl’ album was full of roof-blower-offers and ‘All I Wanna Do’ is up there with Kylie’s best.
