For those of you on the other side of the world, it’s already May 28 here in Australia which means it’s the 40th birthday of Ms Kylie Minogue. Kylie has long provided the soundtrack to my life and yes, I know, I should have realised I was gay a lot earlier. I can’t explain the connection between Kylie and gay men, but for me she’s fun, escapist, cool party music.

In honour of Ms M’s birthday, I’m posting one of my all time favourite songs. From her 1990 album Rhythm of Love, this song is called Shocked. Friends do get a bit concerned when I bust out and sing along to the rap bit in the middle. The hot guy in the video is a guy she was dating at the time. He is a south african model called Zane O’Donnell.
