In UK, off the top of my head :

Celebration made top 20 - about no. 15.

Confide in me got to no. 2.

Put yourself in my place got to no. 6, I think.

Some kind of bliss made top 40, but I don't think it got any higher than 34 or 35 ish.

Sorry but that's about all I remember.

OK....in defense of Kylie :p

Most of those songs u mentioned that didnt chart very well, were either like the 5th or 6th singles of an album, or weren't promoted well at all...namely "Finer Feelings", Where Is The Feeling", "If You Were With Me Now" and "German, Bold, Italics" (that shouldnt even be listed as she was only the guest vocalist ;))

The "Impossible Princess" album (titled "Kylie Minogue" in the UK, in case UK posters are wondering) wasnt a complete flop like so many people are quick to dismiss...considering it was more 'alternative' than the Kylie everyone was used to, and considering she wrote most of it herself (which was a risk well taken IMO), it was a hit in its own right and very well received by critics. Personally it is my fave Kylie album, and considering it was released at a time when pop was back with a bang (see Spice Girls et al ;)) most of the singles performed very well! For a performer of many years, surely we cant expect every hit to go top 10? The fact remains, she had a number 1 hit in 94 with "Confide In Me"...a top 5 collaboration with Nick Cave in 95...a big radio (and chart) hit with Did It Again in 98...and a sellout tour in 98! That aint half bad ;)
Even if some of the songs she released werent huge hits, they were great songs and helped give her the credibility that she now enjoys. Some of her audience weren't ready for her change in style, and maybe some people just wouldnt buy it and remained cynical...thats fine. To me she 's always been great and I have no hesitation in calling her the greatest Australian female performer of *my* time ;)...Olivia never did it for me ;)

So, in the past 2 years, Kylie has racked up hit after hit after hit...who cares if some of the songs she released in that time period u specified werent top 10 hits? I'm sure U2, Michael Jackson, Madonna and the like, have had a few *lean* years too ;)

Go Kylie! :p

Thanks Rightous :p

Interesting to see nearly every song Kylie released in this period was bigger in the UK than in her home country!!!

I find that really strange! Says a lot I think!

Still she is a fantastic ambassador for Australia, hope her success continues to flurrish America like Kasey Chambers and Keith Urban have in recent times!

Put Yourself In My Place #11
Where Is The Feeling #16
Where The Wild Roses Grow #11 ( with Nick Cave

Ausboy as you say its strange that she has had better success in the UK than in OZ but I think people here see her as being form the UK , just one of their own.
