Left to My Own Devices" is a song recorded by Pet Shop Boys, released as the second single from their third studio album, Introspective. It was also the first track of the album. It is their 9th best-selling hit. The single fared better than the album's lead single, "Domino Dancing", charting three positions higher in the UK Singles Chart, at Number 4. It became the first track that Pet Shop Boys recorded with an orchestra, arranged by Richard Niles

Pet Shop Boys wanted big. Trevor Horn, a man with a reputation for taking his time, had a big idea; to program the electronics quickly, and then hire an orchestra to play along to the sequencers, live. This big idea would mean that the big sound could be recorded in only a few days. Horn had a big desire; to record Claude Debussy to a disco beat (something he eventually achieved with the Art Of Noise's 1999 album). So, the Pet Shop Boys decided to play along and record an acid house interlude for the track, based around Debussy-esque chords. A 40 minute jam was recorded live, with Neil, Chris and Trevor on keyboards and Lipson playing the mix desk.

It's not a crime when you look the way you do The way I like to picture you When I get home, it's late at night I pour a drink and watch the fight. Turn off the TV, look at a book Pick up the phone, fix some food Maybe I'll sit up all night and day Waiting for the minute I hear you say. I could leave you, say goodbye Or I could love you, if I try And I could And left to my own devices, I probably would Come on, baby, say goodbye I could love you, if I try And I could And left to my own devices, I probably would Left to my own devices, I probably would

Produced by Stephen Lipson & Trevor Horn. Left to My Own Devices Lyrics. I get out of bed at half past ten Phone up a friend who's a party animal Turn on the news and drink some tea Maybe if you're with me we'll do some shopping. One day I'll read or learn to drive a car If you pass the test you can beat the rest But I don't like to compete or talk street, street, street I can pick up the best from the party animal  . I could leave you, say goodbye Or I could love you, if I try And I could And left to my own devices, I probably would. Come on, baby, say goodbye Or I could love you, if I try And I could And left to my own devices, I probably would Left to my own devices, I probably would Come on, baby Left to my own devices, I probably would.

I was a lonely boy, no strength, no joy in a world of my own at the back of the garden I didn't want to compete or play out on the street for in a secret life I was a Roundhead general. I could leave you say good-bye or I could love you if I try and I could and left to my own devices I probably would Left to my own devices I probably would Oh, I would. I could leave you say good-bye or I could love you if I try and I could and left to my own devices I probably would. Come on, baby say good-bye I could love you if I try and I could and left to my own devices I probably would Left to my own devices I probably would. Out of bed at half past ten the party animal phones a friend Picks up news about the sun and the working day has just begun Sticks with the gang at the back of the street Pass the test and he don't compete Drive the car, if you're with me Che Guevara's drinking tea He reads about a new device. and takes to the stage.

When it comes to fusing brilliant compositions with satirical lyrics into an electronic combustion for dancefloor consumption, nobody tops the Pet Shop Boys. During their still-going 20 year career as the foremost in commercial electronica, the duo's status as the best of the best has never been rivalled. Like many of the greatest artists in history, they possess an immeditately recognisable sound but with the twist that they always manage to sound completely up-to-date with their current projects. The seemingly simple choice of adopting the asistance of the hottest contemporary producers enhances their status as extremely astute musicians with great ears for innovative sounds. 'Left to My Own Devices' is a track worthy of reference. This gem from 1988 utilised the studio wizadry of legendary producer Trevor Horne. Horne is notorious for spending months (and money) to complete a single record. His techniques were unorthodox, to say the least. For the string section of 'Devices', he opted to use a real orchestra to construct the piece then, in turn, used that piece as a base to construct the same notes on a synthesiser. Whether or not the final result is of greater effect really depends on your technical knowledge and your tolerance for infamous perfectionists. Overall, the entire track is a wonderful piece of "symphonic disco". It contains all the drama, energy and wit any typical PSB track should have.
