Kylie Minogue’s “Turn It Into Love” To Be Reimagined On Pete Waterman’s Orchestral Album
Pete Waterman, best known for being one third of ’80s production outfit Stock Aitken Waterman, is reinterpreting some of their greatest hits on an album of orchestral covers. The tracklist hasn’t been announced yet, but Kylie Minogue’s 1988 track “Turn It Into Love” made the cut. “[That song] is one of our biggest hits ever,” Pete told Attitude. “Even though it was a B-side on Kylie’s first album it had a life of its own and was a massive hit in Japan for Kylie and was covered by a girl band out there.”
“I remember going to Japan and hanging out in a karaoke bar and I heard a song that I recognized,” the 68-year-old remembers. “I said ‘this is my song’. And these business men we were with said ‘No this is a hit song in Japan by a group called Wink’. I said no it’s mine. Only when the song ended and Stock Aitken Waterman flashed up did they realise it was my song.” In other SAW news, a 30-disc CD single collection Say I’m Your Number One: The Stock Aitken Waterman Singles will be released in the UK on November 20.
