Kylie Minogue & Jason Donovan

It did not appear on her debut album but was included on Jason Donovan's 1989 debut album Ten Good Reasons. The single was released on November 28, 1988 and was written by Stock Aitken Waterman. Its strongest market was the UK, where its release followed the on-screen wedding of the two actors' respective characters of Charlene and Scott in Australian soap Neighbours which brought peak audiences.

Joe McKee

The Darling Ranges lie about 35 km's south of Perth, Western Australia. The drive is mostly highway, fairly droll until you start actually ascending the hills themselves, at which point great dips and troughs reveal themselves and the whole region takes on a strange arid quality. The area was on fire for about 4 days in early 2011. Joe Mckee grew up in these hills and, after 4 years under the spell of Lon...don, he returned to them. Burning Boy is his debut album.

The Missing Links

The Missing Links were an Australian R&B group from the mid-1960s who were renowned for their (for the time) outrageously long hair and especially for their adventurous musical style, which influenced many later Australian groups, including The Saints. The second incarnation of The Missing Links is also notable for launching the careers of New Zealand-born singer-actor Andy Anderson and guitarist and songwriter Doug Ford, who later became the lead guitarist in The Masters Apprentices.
