Better The Devil You Know


Sung by: Angellica

Original artist: Kylie Minogue
First released: 1990
Written by Stock, Aitken and Waterman

Better The Devil You Know will forever be known as the song that gave Kylie her credibility. The track and video reinvented innocent girl-next-door Kylie as a saucy, sultry pop princess, and earned her a whole new fanbase.

This classic Stock, Aitken and Waterman pop tune has catchy lyrics set to an upbeat dance track and is still a guaranteed floorfiller. The song has been adopted by London’s G-A-Y club as its anthem and is played every Saturday night at exactly 12.30am.

BTDYK (as termed by die-hard Kylie fans) has since been covered by Steps and Atomic Kitten.
