Kylie Minogue - Celebration

"Celebration" is a song originally by Kool & The Gang, released in 1980 as the first single from their album Celebrate!.

The song was covered by Kylie Minogue, and released as a single in 1992. It was recorded by Kylie in 1991 for her fourth studio album, Let's Get to It, but it was not included on the album's release. However, it later appeared on the 1992 Greatest Hits album and was released as the second single. It peaked at no. 20 in the UK Singles Chart and at no. 21 in Australia. One of Kylie's least commercially popular singles, it has been cited many times as one of her favorite songs, and unlike "Finer Feelings" and "What Kind of Fool (Heard All That Before)", "Celebration" was included on her greatest hits compilation albums Ultimate Kylie and The Best of Kylie Minogue. The Techno-Rave mix of the track is featured on the Kylie's Non-Stop History 50+1 album. It was also Kylie's last single with PWL and Stock Aitken Waterman. The music video was filmed in Rio de Janeiro.

Lyrics

Wah-ho
Wah-ho
Wah-ho

Celebrate good times, come on
It's a celebration
Celebrate good times, come on
Let's celebrate

There's a party goin' on right here
A celebration to last throughout the years
So bring your good times and your laughter too
We're gonna celebrate your party wlth you
Come on now
(Celebration)
Let's all celebrate and have a good time
(Celebration)
We're gonna celebrate and have a good time

It's time to come together
It's up to you, what's your pleasure
Everyone around the world, come on

Wah-ho
It's a celebration
Wah-ho

Celebrate good times, come on
It's a celebration
Celebrate good times, come on
Let's celebrate

[4x:] We're gonna have a good time tonight
Let's celebrate, it's all right

It's time to come together
It's up to you, what's your pleasure
Everyone around the world, come on

Wah-ho
It's a celebration
Wah-ho

Wah-ho
Wah-ho

Celebrate good times, come on
(Let's celebrate)
Ohh ohh
Celebrate good times, come on
(It's a celebration)
Celebrate good times, come on
(Let's celebrate)
Come on and celebrate tonight
'Cos everything's gonna be all right
Let's celebrate
