Kylie Minogue - Better the Devil You Know (RD/FS) by AdrianImpalaMata Kylie Minogue - Better the Devil You Know (RD/FS) by AdrianImpalaMata
This version of Better the Devil You Know is a radically reworked orchestral mix of this song, as heard in Kylie's orchestral compilation album The Abbey Road Sessions, first released on October 24, 2012 in Japan. Gone are the Stock, Aitken & Waterman production and the fast-paced tempo, albeit with a torch song-esque production headed by Steve Anderson and Colin Elliot, retooled for such a dramatic (and seductive) moment on the album.

The original version of
Better the Devil You Know was first released on April 30, 1990 as the lead single from Kylie Minogue's third studio album, Rhythm of Love. The dance-pop song is considered to be one of Minogue's best works and has been frequently highlighted by various music critics in subsequent Kylie compilations that included the track.


(Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh...)

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...

Chorus
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...
It's better the devil you know...

(Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh...)

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...

Chorus
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...
It's better the devil you know...

(Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh...)

Instrumental break...

Chorus
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...
It's better the devil you know...

And 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...
It's better the devil you know...
It's better the devil you know...

(Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh...)

Why is it that TV Tropes lists 27 songs from Kylie Minogue under the "Intercourse with You" category and not this one? Given the picture here, this looks like Number 28.

For the record, here are the other 27, courtesy of TV Tropes.

“Getting Closer”, “Too Much Of A Good Thing”, "Let’s Get To It”, “Do You Dare”, “Surrender”, “Dangerous Game”, “Password”, “Physical”, “More More More”, “Fever” “Give It To Me”, “Come Into My World”, “Boy”, “No Better Love”, “Secret (Take You Home)”, “Sweet Music”, “After Dark”, “Cruise Control”, “Slo Motion”, “Like A Drug”, “Nu-dit-ty”, "Heart Beat Rock", “All The Lovers”, “Closer”, “Too Much”, “Cupid Boy”, “Red Blooded Woman”

I tried to stay to the style of the complation's album cover, while trying to portray some sort of a romantic scene for Fluttershy and RD.
