About Better the Devil You Know

"Better the Devil You Know" is a song by Australian singer and songwriter Kylie Minogue, taken from her third studio album Rhythm of Love (1990). The song was written and produced by Stock Aitken Waterman. The song was released as the album's lead single on 30 April 1990 by PWL and Mushroom Records. "Better the Devil You Know" is known as the song that re-invented Minogue with more sex appeal, as her previous albums were presented with her "girl next door" persona. Her music onwards presented a more independent approach. The song's title is referenced as an idiom. Lyrically, the song was said to be about Minogue's leaving of her TV series Neighbours and her relationship with her then-boyfriend, INXS frontman and singer Michael Hutchence. The song was lauded by music critics, who noted the imagery change in her music. They also complimented the song itself and felt it was one of Minogue's best, along as a highlight to, not just her studio album but her compilations as well. Commercially, it was successful. The song peaked at number two in the United Kingdom and four in her native Australia. In other regions, it managed to peak inside the top forty in all the countries it charted in, including France, Austria, Germany, Ireland, New Zealand, Sweden and Switzerland.

Better the devil you know
Better the devil you know (whoa oh oh)
Better the devil you know
Better the devil you know
(Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh oh)

Say you won't leave me no more
I'll take you back again
No more excuses, no no
'Cause I've heard them all before
A hundred times or more

I'll forgive and forget
If you say you'll never go
'Cause it's true what they say
It's better the devil you know
(Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh oh)

Our love wasn't perfect I know
I think I know the score
If you say you love me, oh boy
I can't ask for more
I'll come if you should call

I'll forgive and forget
If you say you'll never go
'Cause it's true what they say
It's better the devil you know

I'll be here every day
Waiting for your love to show
Yes, it's true what they say
It's better the devil you know
(Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh oh)

I'll take you back
I'll take you back again
I'll take you back
I'll take you back again

Say you won't leave me no more
I'll take you back again
No more excuses, no no
'Cause I've heard them all before
A hundred times or more

I'll forgive and forget
If you say you'll never go
'Cause it's true what they say
It's better the devil you know

I'll be here every day
Waiting for your love to show
Yes, it's true what they say
It's better the devil you know

I'll forgive and forget
If you say you'll never go
'Cause it's true what they say
