Kylie Minogue: 10000

It’s the second time that the 10000 mark has been reached by an artist in my Last.FM play history. Not only to top that but it’s the second blog in a row about her as well. I am, of course, talking about the legendary Kylie Minogue who has reached 10,000 plays in total since August 2005.

Madonna reached the milestone in September last year and now it is time to celebrate some of the biggest Kylie Minogue songs that have been on heavy rotation on my iPhone/iPad/TV/Car Radio etc etc. You may remember from my blog back in September about Madonna that Kylie was sitting pretty with 9,408 plays which means that in only 6 months I have played Miss Minogue just under 600 times. Pretty impressive, right?

I am a big fan of Kylie, and in fact both Minogue’s. Talking of which, the next artist likely to reach the 10,000 mark is Dannii Minogue who has a total of 7,058 plays currently. Will she be releasing a new album any time soon? Back to Kylie though, I am a big fan of her music both old and new and recently celebrated one of her old and classic albums “Rhythm Of Love” which was released back in 1990.

I would say that since about 2000, my fandom for Kylie began. When she released the single “Spinning Around” back in June 2000 it was a fun and upbeat song that really brought about the summer vibes. Who, of course, could forget that infamous video of her (literally) spinning around in very small golden hot-pants? Ever since then, my love for Kylie has grown and grown and have seen her twice in concert so far. That number will be increasing to three in June when I see her perform at the British Summertime concerts in Hyde Park. I am very much looking forward to seeing her and see her perform some more of her greatest hits.

Talking of greatest hits, shall we take a look at the Top 10 songs of hers that I obviously love and admire as they have racked up a number of plays over the years. Yes, let’s do it…

So, starting at #10, it’s this summer classic which racked up 177 plays…

At #9, it’s this recent hit, reaching a total of 194 plays…

#8 is this grand old classic (196 plays)…

At #7, it’s this dance hit (215 plays)…

#6 is this in-your-face-with-attitude song with 230 plays…

#5 is a song from the same album, with 248 plays…

#4 is a fantastic, pumping summer jam (251 plays)…

#3 is another classic (254 plays)…

#2 is the runner up, but an absolute corker (325 plays)…

and then at #1, the ultimate Kylie classic and the song you just literally can’t get out of your head, it is…

It received a staggering 424 plays since August 2005 and I bet it would be at least double that amount if Last.FM was invented in 2001. I literally blitzed the shizz out of this song.

So there you have it, my top 10 Kylie songs. Is your favourite in there? How many plays has Kylie notched up on your charts and what direction do you believe she should take with her new album?

I promise that this will be the last time I post about Les Kylie until at least June, when of course I will blog my highlights of her concert (with photos/videos and stuff).
