Kylie's singles "sales" accrediations (although they are actually based on *shipments* - # of copies bought by retailers) in Australia before 1997:

Gold for singles & albums = 35,000 copies
Platinum for singles & albums = 70,000 copies

Especially For You - gold
Hand On Your Heart - gold
Better the Devil You Know - gold
Confide In Me - platinum
Put Yourself In My Place - gold
Where the Wild Roses Grow - gold

I don't have earlier than 1989 - but Locomotion was the biggest single of the 80s here, so would have at *least* gone platinum (although prior to 1988, gold here was 50,000 and platinum 100,000 - so it was harder), as would have I Should Be So Lucky. Got To Be Certain probably would have gone gold, maybe platinum.

LOL you're completelly right! The fact is that I got the numbers from the year-end charts, but the sales from "Can't get you..." wasn't just in that year - I will look for the real total sales =)

And about SLOW, I got that on the 2003 year-end chart too... I didn't knew it sold more than 100k, I tought that in 2004 was already almost off the chart

I just checked and Wouldn't Change A Thing was also certified gold in Australia - although it clearly didn't sell gold - as it was #99 on the end of year chart for 1989, behind many singles that were not gold-accredited.

Don't have a list of them all - just the top 100 singles of '89 in Oz which just has a "?" next to the song if it was given an award (doesn't distinguish between gold & platinum). However, from Especially For You upwards on the chart below, from memory (I used to have the printed chart for this) they all went platinum. In descending order from highest to lowest-selling:


Like A Prayer - Madonna
The Look - Roxette
I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) - The Proclaimers
Eternal Flame - Bangles
If I Could Turn Back Time - Cher (went double plat.)
She Drives Me Crazy - Fine Young Cannibals
Bedroom Eyes - Kate Ceberano
You Got It (The Right Stuff) - New Kids On The Block
Kokomo - Beach Boys
The Living Years - Mike & The Mechanics
Wind Beneath My Wings - Bette Midler
Teardrops - Womack & Womack
If You Don't Know Me By Now - Simply Red
Right Here Waiting - Richard Marx
Tucker's Daughter - Ian Moss
Swing The Mood - Jive Bunny & The Mastermixers
Especially For You - Kylie & Jason
Poison - Alice Cooper
Batdance - Prince
Dressed For Success - Roxette
If I Could - 1927
All I Want Is You - U2
You Got It - Roy Orbison
Stop - Sam Brown
Baby I Don't Care - Transvision Vamp
Talk It Over - Grayson Hugh
Lost In Your Eyes - Debbie Gibson
Express Yourself - Madonna
Ring My Bell - Collette
Toy Soldiers - Martika
Handle With Care - Traveling Wilburys
I'll Be Loving You (Forever) - New Kids On The Block
The Best - Tina Turner
I Don't Want A Lover - Texas
Stuck On You - Paul Norton
I'm On My Way - The Proclaimers
We Didn't Start The Fire - Billy Joel
Funky Cold Medina - Tone Loc
She Has To Be Loved - Jenny Morris
Rock & Roll Music - Mental As Anything
Wild Thing - Tone Loc
Now You're In Heaven - Julian Lennon

(Orinoco Flow - Enya at #43 is highest to have no gold accreditation, implying that none below it actually SOLD gold)

Right Back Where We Started From - Sinitta
One Summer - Daryl Braithwaite
Cherish - Madonna
Hand On Your Heart - Kylie Minogue
Chained To The Wheel - Black Sorrows

The Only Way Is Up - Yazz (would have sold at least gold from combined '88/89 sales)

I Feel The Earth Move - Martika (would have sold gold with combined '90 sales)

Hangin' Tough - New Kids On The Block
Too Many Broken Hearts - Jason Donovan

Love Shack - B-52's (sold over platinum with combined '90 sales)

Wouldn't Change A Thing - Kylie Minogue
