Don't forget how it all started. Her sister was the big well-known name down under and got her her first singing gig. She was the tiny, shy one. This video (despite the horrendous vocalizations and hair) show she was the one who possessed effortless star quality.

[R5] Surely Kylie was the better known of the two for her role on Neighbours?
|by BB||reply 7||12/02/2017|
R5, I think it was that understated quality that always drew me to Kyllie. Yeah, she wanted to be a star, but she wasn't obnoxious about it, like Madonna.
|by BB||reply 8||12/02/2017|
R7 Not really. Dannii was a popular child singer and actor from about 8 or 9 years old, and was groomed to be a teen star. Kylie was an adjunct who did some occasional acting, mostly because her parents thought it would be too damaging to her self esteem if she didn't keep up a little.
|by BB||reply 9||12/02/2017|
R9, you obviously know much more about this than I do. I have heard and liked some of Dannii's recordings, bur being from the U.S., I didn't know the backstory. I'm sorry she was the one who passed over. In any event, I'm still Kylie's biggest fan. But not in the Kathy Bates /Misery way.

Kylie assaulted me in 1991.
|by BB||reply 11||12/02/2017|
Not really a diehard Kylie fan though I do really like her work in the 90s. Confide in me is great and her duet with Nick Cave is fantastic.
Coincidentally I'm watching 1986 episodes of Neighbours and I'm still surprised she managed to get so big from the role. The Jason Donovan version of Scott is crap compared to the brooding Darius Perkins version and Charlene whilst a fun character doesn't have the it factor. God I love watching that old cunt Nell Mangle. Nell would have been home on DL.

I think I like this era of Kylie best. She was around 35, and most of her big successes were behind her already. She sort of found a balance between the edgy sound she wanted and the fluffy Stock Aitken Waterman sound. This track won her only Grammy trophy; for Best Dance.
|by BB||reply 15||12/02/2017|
Is Kylie a lesbian? I always wondered about that. Oddly, as a gay man, all of my female heroes have been lesbians : Joan Jett , Olivia Newton John, Helen Reddy, Debbie Harry (bi, I believe, Anne Murray, Suzi Quatro, Stevie Nicks (always thought she was bi), the wonderful Dusty Springfiield, Whitney Fucking Houston,, et al.
|by BB||reply 16||12/02/2017|
And if Chrissie Hynde isn't a lesbian, she sure fooled me. And God bless her. She got me through being a sad, bullied, gay boy from 1980-1982.
|by BB||reply 17||12/02/2017|
They're have ALWAYS been rumors. I don't think she is, she has a "type" of male she prefers. Brooding, butch, good looking... And a little rugged around the edges. She likes quiet and masculine guys.

OP here: I dont' know her at all, but Chrissie Hynde and the first three Pretenders albums gave me so much hope. Maybe even prevented something drastic. Love you, Chrissie. Remember seeing you in 1986 when you gave the crowd hell for not getting into Iggy Pop, the opening act.

r16 I always thought Kylie was suspect, though there isn't any real basis for it....
|by BB||reply 21||12/02/2017|
Dannii was successful in her own right, just less so than Kylie.
It was always amusing to see Kylie's peak success occurred in her 30s - she was 31 when Light Years came out and she managed to sustain it until 2005. Arguably, she could have extended her peak if she hadn't got cancer, which is pretty much where it ended.
With that said, All The Lovers could have been a bigger hit if it hadn't been screwed up by Polygram.

I loved TImebomb too, which wasn't a hit. To be honest, I think she's a little too long in the tooth to be getting big pop hits nowadays, like Madonna. Which is shame, but it's what it is.

That full version of PYIMP is the best one where she does the full Barbarella strip. It's her most gorgeous video. Jane Fonda and Ann-Margret were her role models at the time.

Going all the way back to Jan' 1990 was the first unveiling of sexier Kylie in the video 'Tears on My Pillow', from The Delinquents soundtrack. It's a bog standard SAW sound. She looks a little different, like she did something to her face.
The bland guys the media set her up with then, like Jason Donovan and Charlie Schlatter were the opposite of the ones she was attracted to.

Dannii was incredibly unattractive before she had all her facial features reshaped- eyes, cheekbones, nose, jaw and lips plus pretty big chest implants. She's barely transcended being the overly confident wannabe with a line at Kmart ....except now she has a range with Target Australia. Without starving herself, extensive plastic surgery, famewhoring and bearding for Simon Cowell she really would be nothing. Even when she married Julian Mcmahon, the trashy tabloid she did a deal with for the photos only put her on the cover if Kylie was in the shot. Then she and julian did interviews for the same trash mag when on their honeymoon!!

She never got over michael hutchence and even when he was still alive (and seriously involved with helena then paula) would often talk about their rship in interviews- how he transformed her life and allowed her to blossom etc. Fuck knows how jason donovan would have felt hearing that as she never says anything nice about him. At least he managed to stay alive and if he did cheat on her (which is highly unlikely), he didn't do it publicly as hutchence was involved with SO MANY women during and at the end of his time with kylie before he took up with helena officially.
She was rumoured to be seriously involved with a woman in sydney for years quite a while ago but her first love will always be herself.

I saw Kylie's Christmas show at the Royal Albert Hall last year and it is one of the best shows I've ever seen. She really is a terrific performer. She is pure pop with a touch of camp. And she's made some excellent albums. I love Impossible Princess which is considered her Indie album but it is still classic Kylie. Light Years is a pop treasure and still sounds great today. Body Language has a great '80s R&B vibe to it, very underrated. And I love Aphrodite. Strong production by Stuart Price.
|by BB||reply 53||12/05/2017|
Those Christmas shows looked like such a fun experience, R53.
I think R52 nails it. In concert she manages to be part of sometimes ridiculous, over-the-top camp-fests, while somehow simultaneously remaining genuinely warm and grounded. She straddles that fine line of giving into the excess while slyly winking to us.
|by BB||reply 54||12/05/2017|
Kylie's original, non PWL version of The Locomotion, titled just "Locomotion" was her first Aussie hit. To me this version is better. Her voice is richer. Actually it's far better than any other vocal of hers. And I think under the mix I hear Wendy Matthews voice, especially on the "Yeeeeeaaah -YEAAAHHHH!!...." parts. Wendy was a much in demand Aussie-Canadian session singer who "ghost-tracked" for many popular artists. If a singer had not found "their own voice" Wendy would lay down vocal tracks and the star would sing over them karaoke style. That is how Cher did many of her albums with the original vocal guides were supplied by Wendy.
|by BB||reply 55||12/05/2017|
Holy fuck R55. Never thought I'd hear Wendy Matthews being mentioned on DL. I agree especially when it gets to the 'lot of soul' part. If you listen to Osamu Kitajima 'Willow Pattern' Wendy does sound eerily similar to Kylie on Locomotion in parts.
|by BB||reply 56||12/06/2017|
Wendy let the Cher thing out of the bag many years ago (she probably felt it was safe to let it slip it on Aussie tv ). When you listen to "If I Could Turn Back Time" it's Cher's voice impersonating Wendy. She mentioned supplying voice guides to many other well-known divas of the day and making a fortune out of it. I never really saw anything wrong with it, just comes down how you want to manage your studio time I suppose. But the difference between Kylie's first album (where SAW/PWL kind of left her voice raw and unprocessed to make her sound baby-like) and her demo voice is huge.
|by BB||reply 57||12/06/2017|
I never knew that. Thanks R57. I just listened to If I Could Turn Back Time and now I can't hear anything but Wendy Matthews voice. It's actually quite dominant. Sure Cher has her vocal quirks in there but the majority really sounds like Matthews. She has such a unique and powerful voice. It would also explain why Cher always sounds so different and uses a lot of help like autotune. Not saying she's a bad singer just uses the help that's provided.
Much preferred Locomotion to The Locomotion too. Locomotion was much more mature sounding compared to the really 80s pop 2nd version. Not surprised why the 2nd version took off. It fits the bubbly cutesy girl next door image she was marketed as since Charlene and Neighbours were so popular.

A friend of mine used to work at the BBC mostly on entertainment shows for kids. He worked with Kylie several times and described her as a total pro with no attitude. She’d hang out on set between takes and chat with the crew. She’d remember names after one meeting and greet those people with hugs. I’m not really a fan of her music outside of a few songs, but those stories have me a very positive view of her.

Kylie (along with Julian McMahon and Guy Pierce too) has a movie coming out about 70s suburbia. No wonder our parents were buying houses with rumpus rooms back then. They needed us out of their hair so they could bang each other. Awww the good old days.
