Pete Waterman recalled in 1000 UK #1 Hits
by Jon Kutner and Spencer Leigh, "I was at home one Friday afternoon when I got a phone call from Mike Stock at the office who asked if there was something I had forgotten to tell him. 'A small Antipodean called Kylie Minogue?' prompted Mike, 'Oh yes, I forgot, she's in town.' Mike said, 'No she's in reception.' I apologized for messing up and said we'll have to drop the whole project. Mike said, 'We can't, she's expecting to do something with us.' 'She should be so lucky,' I replied. 'Great,' Mike said, 'That'll do. I Should Be So Lucky. Can we write some lyrics?'" Mike and Pete began faxing lyrics back and forth and the song was quickly finished. The triple echo "lucky, lucky, lucky" at the end of the title was an improvised joke during the recording, which they decided to keep.
