And she’s performing in Manila tonight.
With all the rumors in the past about Kylie Minogue and Rick Astley being the same person but sped up or sped down respectively, Kylie has always been quite an attraction throughout her career, whether by churning out hits like the one above, or starring in terrible movies with Jean-Claude Van Damme.
Not pictured: Kylie’s proudest career moment.
Out of all her songs, I went with “I Should Be So Lucky” simply because I really liked the upbeat nature of the song, especially when slowing it down makes you wonder if Rick Astley was actually doing the vocals, rather than Ms. Minogue. There’s just something about being reminded that you are so lucky to be in love when it’s with the right person, and Kylie’s infectious energy just really makes this song very memorable, and less LSS-inducing and annoying than “Can’t Get You Out Of My Head.”
I won’t be catching the concert of this pop icon tonight, but I hope the people who will be enjoy this rare opportunity to catch a real specimen of talent at work. I wish I were there.
