Kylie Minogue

The Best of Kylie Minogue

(EMI)

Kylie Minogue has always been sorta like the Aussie version of Madonna. From her super-fluffy first singles in the ’80s (“I Should Be So Lucky”) to her powerhouse hits years later (“Can’t Get You Out of My Head”) to becoming an icon for millions of gay men around the world, Minogue’s career has practically mirrored her more popular counterpart’s. And if you’re still not on board with her meticulously crafted songs and inherent pop smarts, check out the 21-track, career-spanning The Best of Kylie Minogue for all the proof you need. Ignore the blah cover versions – “Give Me Just a Little More Time,” “Tears on My Pillow,” and “The Loco-Motion,” her biggest U.S. hit – and head straight for killer cuts like “All the Lovers,” where Minogue expresses herself with pop-diva aplomb.
