As annoying as it was, this was the song that propelled Neighbour's star, Kylie Minogue, to musical success back in the 80s. Taken from Kylie's debut album "Kylie" (imaginiative title!), this SAW production entered the UK charts on 9 January 1988 at No.99, before rising to number one, where it stayed for five weeks. It became the third biggest selling single of the year with sales of 672,568.
Just how innocent is that video when compared to some of today's releases?
This was the fifth international single
released by Kylie in time for the Christmas 1988 market, and it was, of course, a duet with Jason Donovan.
The release of "Especially For You" followed the on-screen wedding of the two actors' respective characters, Scott and Charlene, on the Aussie soap Neighbours.
A classic 80's tune from the producers of Kylie and Jason!
