Kylie Minogue - I Should Be So Lucky (1988)

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?

Kylie & Jason - Especially For You (1988)

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.

However, this single didn't appear on the debut album "Kylie", but was included on Jason Donovan's 1989 debut album "Ten Good Reasons". The single was produced by Stock Aitken & Waterman.

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.
