It’s party time on Hugh’s music time machine this week. We’re also a day early because it’s Halloween! I always enjoy a party, especially when it’s Halloween and there’s plenty of treats on offer. 🎃 I hope you all have your Halloween costumes ready because you’ve not much time to change into them. Why? Because we’re only leaping forward one year from last week’s featured year, although we are about to enter a brand new decade.
Welcome to the year 1990. If you hear the doorbell ringing and the words “trick or treat” being shouted out, just tell whoever it is that you’re far too busy with Kylie.
Did you recognise my Halloween theme with this week’s song? Yes? It may not be a particularly scary song but it sure as heck would be on my Halloween playlist. Kylie always gets me dancing, but she also gave me one of my most frightening weeks when deciding which of her songs to feature. There were so many to choose from. I practically love them all and spent sleepless nights deciding which one to showcase.
Better The Devil You Know was written and produced by Stock, Aiken and Waterman. Yes, this is the third time I’ve mentioned the magical song-churning trio in this feature, but they were a huge success and just about took over the music world during the late 1980s and early part of the 1990s. Charting at number two in the United Kindom, the song had a mixed reaction with charting success around the world. It only managed to hit number one in Israel but, where it was released as a single, did peek inside the top 40 singles charts.

Just before we leave 1990, you may like to witness some strange goings-on here in the Roberts’ household. Watch out for the unusual object that appears five minutes and twenty-three seconds into the video. If anyone knows what it is, then please do tell us in the comments.
