Welcome Back Kylie

We’re not embarrassed to admit that we think Kylie Minogue‘s great. She’s brilliant.

From her early pop days of ‘I Should Be So Lucky’ and ‘Locomotion’, she’s come a long way since her acting part as Charlene in Neighbours with THAT bouffant hair (who didn’t have bad hair in the 80s?!).

Her successful comeback in the noughties with ‘Spinning Around’, after years of being away from the music scene prompted a move from pop to edgier dance-orientated songs. The arrival of her ‘Showgirl: The Homecoming Tour’ proved that being a little bit camp can be cool.

After a string of unsuccessful relationships and her triumphant battle over breast cancer, she’s emerged a fighter.

New Album Released

With her latest album, Aphrodite, released this week having sold more than 30,000 copies on Monday, topping the midweek chart, it looks like the future’s bright for the pint-sized pop princess.

Welcome back Kylie!

Head on over to the Karaoke Store to record your own versions of Kylie’s songs including favourites ‘I Should Be So Lucky’, ‘Can’t Get You Out Of My Head’, ‘Wow’, ‘Spinning Around’ and her latest single, ‘All The Lovers’.

Our best competition yet…

Mark Knopfler is not only known for his role as founder and lead guitarist in Dire Straits, whose tracks ‘Sultans of Swing’ and ‘Money for Nothing’ are considered a staple in any respectable guitarists’ repertoire but also for his solo career and soundtrack recordings.

We have teamed up with Mark to launch our best competition yet – the chance to win a private lesson with him at British Grove Studios.
