Kylie Minogue marks 30 years since I Should Be So Lucky

‘Worth it every time!‘ Kylie Minogue celebrates 30 years since the release of her breakthrough hit I Should Be So Lucky… prompting fans to flood her Instagram with memories of the song

She may be a global superstar these days but there was a time when was only known for her role as Charlene in Neighbours.

It all changed with the release of her breakthrough single I Should Be So Lucky, which thrust the pint-sized popstar into the international spotlight.

And on Friday, the 49-year-old singer marked the 30-year anniversary of the song‘s release with a nostalgic post. 

Sharing a series of images from a decades-old photo shoot, Kylie wrote: ‘Happy 30th I Should Be So Lucky!‘ 

The blonde beauty looked every inch the 80s teen pop star in the snaps, sporting double denim, a midriff-baring top and her locks styled in a trendy-at-the-time perm.

Earlier in the week, Kylie was equally as reflective, posting a throw back of the single‘s cover.

A youthful Kylie could be seen wearing a white button-up ensemble, complemented with white rose fixtures in her hair.

Meanwhile, the trademark 1980s fashion and beauty was out in full force as the star opted for a blunt fringe and a dusting of blue eye shadow. 

‘On the 29th December it will be 30 years since the release of ‘I Should Be So Lucky,‘ the former Neighbours star captioned the throwback image.

‘What are your memories from that time? I’d love to hear your stories and see your pictures.‘

Enthusiastic fans of the pop princess didn‘t need much prompting to take a trip down memory lane and flooded her comments section their recollections.

‘I didn’t hear the song til ‘98 after I bought Impossible Princess. I was 9. I bought your greatest hits album and this song was one of my faves. That was one of the best things I’ve ever bought!‘ one follower wrote.

Another added:  ‘I should be so lucky is the first ever film clip I remember! I wanted mum to put black and white tiles in our bathroom.‘ 

Another fan‘s memories also highlighted how much technology had changed in those 30 years.

‘I was 6, taking long drives with my parents weather it be from Ballarat or Melbourne, my brother and I would be set up in the back of the car, pink Walkman in hand and kylie cassette in playing the same song over and over,‘  the fan recalled.

‘The only problem was back then there was no rewind button….. take the tape out flip it over, fast forward 3 mins, take it back out and press play again…. repeat over and over and over, worth it every time.‘ 

Kylie has had quite the year of reliving the early days of her career – she has also teamed up with her former Neighbours co-star Guy Pearce for new film, Swinging Safari.
