Kylie Minogue opens up about her rise to fame as she marks her silver anniversary in the industry
It was a relationship that transformed her from soap actress into global music star overnight.
Kylie Minogue worked with music producers Stock Aitken and Waterman for five years and established an enviable record of chart hits which began with the single 'I should be so lucky'.
The record topped the British charts and set Miss Minogue on a journey in the music industry which has endured 25 years.
However, In a Radio 2 interview which will be broadcasted on Thursday evening to mark her silver anniversary, Miss Minogue has revealed her success with Mike Stock, Mike Aitken, Pete Waterman and their record label PWL revolved around her being able to simply remember and recite lyrics.
Miss Minogue said she was not in the studio when the dynamic trio penned 'I should be so lucky' within half an hour and revealed: 'I was waiting in a lounge room next to the studio.
And I was thrust into the studio and sang it. I remember being pretty close to terrified but hey we got it done and I think one of the reasons I worked really well with them, is, in a way, it's something that ended up frustrating me later on but at the time, I was quite used to lines on a script: I learn the lines, I say the lines, perform the lines and that was the set up at PWL.
'Here's the song, here's your lyrics, Mike Stock would go: 'This is how you do it in melodies like this', and my brain is geared towards that, I remember it instantly and I punch it out.'
Miss Minogue, 44, had 13 consecutive hits with PWL over a five year period which included four no 1s and five no 2s, before she parted ways and changed direction.
Miss Minogue signed with Deconstruction and although she had some chart hits she found it difficult to adjust to not being so successful.
She said: 'I loved being given a different responsibility. As far as commercial success goes, from where we'd been with hit after hit, I can't say I just brushed it off.
'But I did like working with people I thought were cool and different.
And multi-millionaire Miss Minogue who has been with model Andres Velencoso since 2008, has never forgotten her humble roots.
She said: 'My family didn't come from any money, we didn't come from any standing in society, or anything like that. My father worked two jobs - he started at night When I was born and they finally got a heater it was a really big news.
'So I do come from humble beginnings and a work ethic that allowed us to have what we needed as a family and never feel that we were missing anything.
