Kylie Minogue (Opens in a new tab) And Jason Donovan is re-releasing just for you to celebrate finale episode (Opens in a new tab) From the neighbors in front of them Back to soap (Opens in a new tab) This month.
Neighbors are excluded (Opens in a new tab)37 years after the famous soap first appeared on the screens.
The pop duo rose to the top of the charts in 1988 when they collaborated musically to release a duet after their on-screen success as Scott and Charlene on the Australian series Neighbors.
The pair, who at the time were also a real-life couple, left the popular soap to focus on their own music careers and the song was released as part of Jason’s debut album Ten Good Reasons and was his first selling single – which has sold over a million copies.
Kylie and Jason – who have since had successful singles careers since their rise to fame on the show – are looking to get back to number one again as they gather to say goodbye to the neighbors.
Kylie shared the exciting nostalgia news with her fans on Twitter when she tweeted, “Now we’re back together on ‘Neighbours’, a limited series of ‘Special for You’.” (Opens in a new tab)With @JDonOfficial it will be available on vinyl and cassette on August 5th to bring back more memories of the 80’s!! “

And fans are wondering when will Jason and Kylie get back to Neighbors? (Opens in a new tab) Can’t wait for the re-release.
One fan tweeted, “That’s great news Kylie I keep getting my original 7′ and 12′ vinyls from the ’80s and the original single CD too I love this amazing duo with JDonOfficial.”
Another supporter put it, “Omg I’m still getting the original 7-inch vinyl from its original release, but I’m out to pre-order this limited 7-inch vinyl and white cassette now, let’s get this back to number 1.”
A third lifelong fan added, “Childhood memories bless a beautiful classic one that I still hold very close to my heart. A great duo from the ’80s with two great legends, I’ll be ordering this set now. Thank you very much Kylie.kylieminogue.”
In real life, Jason is married to Angela Malloch and has three children, Gemma, 22, Molly, 11, and a son, Zach, 21.
Jason’s daughter Gemma followed in his footsteps and landed a role on the soap.
Kylie is dating Paul Solomons, but previously revealed why she didn’t have children in an interview with the Sunday Times.
Recalling what would have been a huge popularity moment when the single was first released, Pete Waterman told OfficialCharts.com, “This was one of those records that never really worked. We mixed it up — then canceled it — we started a new one with we had 6 hours to do all the work. Something, mix it up, get it delivered to the factory! We did it and it has been selling for over a million votes. Those were the days!”
Neighbors will end with a double-episode special on Channel 5 at 9PM on July 29, and the “Special for You” re-release will drop on August 5th—with a limited solo edition available for pre-order now.
