Kylie Minogue’s smash hit Can’t Get You Out of My Head is celebrating its 20th birthday and, no, we can’t believe where the time has gone either.
The Australian pop icon, 53, took to Twitter to honour the anniversary with a special video compilation of her performing the song over the years.
She wrote: ‘Wow. I mean, WOW!!! What a moment in my lifetime. And I’ve been singing it ever since!!! #LaLaLa’
Fans also took to Twitter to share what ‘the greatest pop song ever written’ means to them and reminisce on the good times.
One long-time fan wrote: ‘I remember when I was like 5 and they kept playing it on the radio and I loooooved listening to it on the car with my parents… the memories I have with this song, ugh [sic]’
Another gushed: ‘20 years since my life changed! You will always be my #1 @kylieminogue! You got me through some of the toughest years of my life with this song and the album Fever. Thank you!’

One loving fan also recalled the song’s impact on their childhood: ‘The way this song had a chokehold on our house, 3 year old me bopping about every Saturday morning watching MTV Hits with Dad as he did the ironing for the week’
Twitter users also called the song ‘iconic,’ ‘a timeless bop’ and ‘a masterpiece’ and, tbf, we agree.
‘This song could be released tomorrow and it would STILL be a banger,’ declared a supporter.
Can’t Get You Out of My Head was released on September 8 2001 as the lead single from Kylie’s eighth studio album, Fever.

The dance-pop anthem was written and produced by Cathy Dennis and Rob Davis, and is known for its addictive ‘la la la’ hook.
Kylie achieved a number one in 40 countries with the song, sitting comfortably at the top spot for four weeks in the UK and selling 306k copies in its first week.
The song was originally offered to S Club 7 and Sophie Ellis-Bextor before Kylie jumped at the chance to record it after hearing 20 seconds of the demo.
As of February 2018, the track is Kylie’s highest-selling single with worldwide sales of over five million copies.
The music video for the tune boasts many memorable moments, the white hooded jumpsuit with a plunging neckline and high leg slits Kylie sports throughout being a highlight.
The famous jumpsuit was put on display at Kylie: The Exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, which featured memorabilia and costumes from her career.
The music video was nominated for best dance video at the 2002 MTV VMAs and won the award for best choreography.
Can’t Get You Out of My Head was re-released in 2019 on Kylie’s greatest hits compilation Step Back in Time: The Definitive Collection, a greatest hits compilation, which became her seventh album to reach number one in the UK.
