Kylie Minogue Covers Bob Dylan Track for ‘Absolutely Fabulous’ Movie Theme
Kylie Minogue has re-recorded the theme to Absolutely Fabulous for the hit TV comedy’s upcoming movie. The Australian pop star has secretly covered Bob Dylan’s 1975 tune “This Wheel’s On Fire” for the much-anticipated film, according to The Sun.
She isn’t the first person to tackle the track, which Dylan first performed with The Band. The song has also been covered by The Damned star Rat Scabies, Siouxsie and the Banshees, and Elvis Costello. Julie Driscoll teamed up with Brian Auger and The Trinity to score the biggest hit with the song in 1968, and Driscoll re-recorded the track with comic Adrian Edmondson for the Absolutely Fabulous TV series in the early 1990s. The soundtrack to Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie, which will be released on July 1, will also feature actress Jane Horrock’s rendition of Shirley Bassey classic “Big Spender.”
