You're much too young, girl...

The Princess of Pop becomes the Grand Dame as she turns 40 today. Kylie's got the night off schlepping around the stage and the family have all flown over to Germany with a Tupperware dish full of sausage rolls for a right old knees up. Dannii's bringing her copy of The Tweet's Greatest Hit so they can all do The Birdie Dance when they're a bit pissed.

The number one song in the UK on May 28th, forty years ago, was Young Girl by Gary Puckett & The Union Gap. And the lyrics seem very apt for today: "With all the charms of a woman / You've kept the secret of your youth" and "Beneath your perfume and make-up / You're just a baby in disguise".
