Retrovision: Pet Shop Boys- Left to My Own Devices

Twenty five years ago, Pet Shop Boys released their single "Left To My Own Devices". Personally on of my favorite Pet Shop Boys to this date. The song was released as the second single from their third studio album, 'Introspective'. It became the first track that Pet Shop Boys recorded with an orchestra, arranged by Richard Niles reaching the top ten charts in several European countries including the UK. 
The music video, directed by long time Pet Shop Boys director, Eric Watson, primarily consists of Tennant and Lowe dancing on an invisible glass floor, with the camera angle facing upwards. 
In 2007, the song was covered by the Scottish electronic group Motormark and featured on the 2007 tribute compilation 'Very Introspective, Actually – A Pet Shop Boys Tribute'.
