Still Can’t Get It Out Of My Head
In the late 1980s, Australian actress Kylie Minogue scored some moderate success in the United States, reaching the top 40 on Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart with three singles, including her remake of Little Eva’s “The Loco-motion,” which rose to number 3 in November 1988. While Minogue continued to have chart success in other countries, especially her home country of Australia, throughout the 1990s, she wouldn’t hit the Hot 100 in the U.S. again until the early 2000s, when “Can’t Get You Out Of My Head” and “Love At First Sight” became her fourth and fifth U.S. top 40 hits, respectively.
The first of those two songs, “Can’t Get You Out Of My Head” became a huge international success, rising to number 1 and going platinum in numerous countries, including triple platinum in Australia. In the U.S., exactly 10 years ago today the song peaked at number 7, though somehow it seems like its “na na na, na na na na na” chorus never left.
