"Get the Balance Right!" is the seventh single by Depeche Mode, released on 31 January 1983. Recorded at Blackwing Studios, it is the first Depeche Mode single with Alan Wilder as an official band member (Wilder also co-wrote the B-side track "The Great Outdoors!").
"Get the Balance Right!" was not included on the following album Construction Time Again, but does appear on the American compilation People Are People and the compilation The Singles 81–85.
In the music video, Wilder lip-syncs the first lines of the song, even though Dave Gahan is the lead singer. Kevin Hewitt, the director, made the assumption that Wilder was the singer and they were too embarrassed to point out his mistake. File Hashes
