    Default Was Shocked the last hit single by SAW…?

    … or were there other hits after that before Aitken left?

    Well technically referring to the UK charts (as an example), If You Were With Me Now (#4) then Give Me Just A Little More Time (#2) scored better than Shocked (#6)…

    But that was not Stock Aitken Waterman anymore, only Stock Waterman.

    What I mean: Did other acts by SAW have any hits after Shocked…?

    Why did he leave?

    Was there any scandal?

    He ate all the pies. Then left. No scandal.

    They made enough money to retire. Matt bought a big ghastly house in the home counties.

    Well, IYWWMN is gorgeous and I believe Kylie is meant to love it, but it is a ballad duet with a largely unknown singer. Not too many opportunities to perform it then. Plus despite being an accomplished balladeer, Kylie’s not really known for her slow (no pun intended) numbers. EFY being the exception. I’d like to say WTWRG too, but even lots of fans who came on board post-2000 didn’t know about it until Glastonbury. Weird, huh?!

    WTWRG seems to be well known by the general audience in Australia. It’s the one song the alternative audience would play if something by Kylie.

    Plus Give Me Just A Little More Time is hardly a slow song and reached number 2. Why is that not considered by the GP yet Shocked is which charted lower. Makes no sense.

    Because Kylie continues to focus on the same songs all of the time so the public forget about her other songs!!!

    Oh yeah true. Like she turned YDNY into a classic which wasn’t even released as a single in the UK and charted very low in Germany and Australia.

    Also like her turning The One into a classic as well which was a huge flop.
