Since Kylie Minogue recently tweeted that there is lots of celebrations in place for her 25 year anniversary since the release of her debut single ‘I Should Be So Lucky’, forums have been busy speculating what might be on the cards. It could be a tour, or an ‘anti-tour’ of small venues as Kylie has mentioned she’d like to do this quite recently, a new Greatest Hits collection, a rarities and B-side collection, an album of her classic hits re-interpreted and updated for 2012, the suggestions are endless. Whatever the plans are, Kylie fans worldwide are clearly excited, as is the superstar herself.

As we approach this monumental point in Kylie’s career, I thought I would take a look back and chart some of my personal favourite moments. I will list my Top Five songs from each album, my Top Five tours, my Top Twenty B-sides and rarities and finally my Top Ten albums and tracks overall. While this may sound exhaustive, I am a Kylie and list-lover and I have time on my hands. Feel free to comment and add your own favourites. Who knows, we could start a revolution right here and maybe even influence the upcoming plans!
