This had a surprisingly slow climb up the UK charts, only reaching the Top 20 in its eighth week.
"Wow" was written by Kylie, Karen Poole and Greg Kurstin (who also produced the track). Karen Poole is the daughter of former Tremeloes front man Brian Poole. She formed the duo Alisha's Attic, together with her younger sister Shelley, and they enjoyed 5 UK Top 20 hits between 1997 and 2001. Poole then branched out into song-writing, contributing "Red Blooded Woman" and "Chocolate," both UK Top 10 hits for Kylie. She also co-wrote the Shapeshifters' #1 dance smash "Lola's Theme" and the Sugababes UK Top 10 hit "Caught in a Moment."
"Wow" was one of the last tracks recorded for the X album, having been put on tape on the Mediterranean island of Ibiza in the late summer of 2007.
This was released as a single just over 20 years after Kylie's very first British single release "I Should Be So Lucky" reached the top of the UK chart.
Geffen Records made history on June 27, 1994 when Aerosmith's "Head First" became the first major label song made available for exclusive digital download. Download speeds at the time were so slow it took around 75 minutes to download the track.
"Pretty In Pink" by Psychedelic Furs was released in 1981. Five years later, it inspired a movie of the same name starring Molly Ringwald, Andrew McCarthy and Jon Cryer. The song was remixed for the re-release to have more Pop appeal.
