Kylie Minogue's Official Top 40 biggest selling songs

To celebrate Kylie's 50th birthday, Official Charts reveals her top UK sellers of all time.

Happy 50th birthday to Kylie Minogue! You look amazing, KM.

As we toast her future, let's wallow in nostalgia and look back at Kylie's almost unmatchable catalogue of hits.

She's had 51 Top 40s over the course of her career, with 34 going Top 10 and seven making it to Number 1 – but there's only room for 40 here, as we count down her biggest selling songs. See where all of Kylie Minogue's UK hit singles and albums have charted here.

I Should Be So Lucky

It all started here. Thanks to Stock Aitken Waterman, Kylie topped the chart for five straight weeks in early 1988 with this lovelorn banger. It's her third biggest seller, notching up 702,850 sales.

Especially For You

Giving the public what they wanted at Christmas, Kylie teamed up with rumoured real-life love and actual Neighbours co-star Jason Donovan for this smoochy, syrup-laden ballad. Thanks to Cliff Richard, it missed the Official Christmas Number 1 but did hit the top in early 1989. It became Kylie's second million-selling single when it finally passed the magic milestone in December 2014, and currently stands at 1.09 million sales.

Better the Devil You Know

Kylie's first reinvention saw her ditch the "girl next door" image and embrace a more, well, "girl two doors down who's got a tattoo and plays her music a bit too loud and drinks straight from the bottle" image. One of her many Number 2 singles – she has 12 to her name – Better the Devil You Know is in ninth place on her all-time chart with 340,000 copies sold.

Confide In Me

It was all change for Kylie in 1994 when she waved bye-bye to Stock Aitken Waterman and explored her creative side with a new record label, a wealth of collaborators queuing to work with her and a new sound. First up was this spooky epic, which has shifted 189,000 copies and finished 17th.

Spinning Around

A huge comeback, but 11 songs refused to move out of her way, Spinning Around from 2000 finishes outside the Top 10, with 314,000 sales. Read our interview with the producer of Spinning Around, Mike Spencer, here.

Can't Get You Out Of My Head

Here's the big one! Kylie cemented that comeback in fine style with this dance-pop juggernaut from 2001, spending four weeks at the top and racking up incredible sales to land her first million-seller. Can't Get You Out Of My Head la-la-lands at the top of her bestsellers' list, with 1.205 million of you finding a place for it in your hearts.

All the Lovers

Kylie's most recent Top 10 may have ended up peaking at 3 in the charts, but this 2010 single certainly made an impression, selling more than many of her Number 1s and all but one of her Number 2s, so to speak. 383,000 copies sold take it to sixth spot on the Kylie kountdown.

Dancing

Coming right up to date, while the lead single from Kylie's new album Golden is a little too recent to make a dent on her Top 40, it currently sits in 50th position.

Other notable tracks and chart facts

1989 chart-topper Hand on Your Heart (4th) has shifted 494,000 copies, and Kylie's biggest selling Number 2 single, The Loco-Motion (in 5th place) has sold 434,000. Kylie's most recent Number 1 Slow, from 2003, is her lowest selling chart-topper, on 135,000 copies.

Her biggest selling song to miss the Top 5 is 2008's Higher with Taio Cruz at 8 (338,000), and to miss the Top 10 is 2010's Get Outta My Way at 28 (100,000 sales).

Kylie's biggest selling album track is the infamous Your Disco Needs You, which finished 52nd in her all-time chart. Check out our 50 golden chart facts about Kylie Minogue here.
