"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!").
The B-side is "The Great Outdoors!", an instrumental written by Gore and Wilder. It was featured on the Broken Frame Tour as the introduction theme for selected shows, after an incident with their Revox machine that destroyed almost all their previous intro, "Oberkorn (It's a Small Town)".
Included on the 12-inch releases is "Tora! Tora! Tora! (Live)", the first live song released on a Depeche Mode single. A limited edition 12-inch of the single was released, which features more live tracks: "My Secret Garden", "See You", and "Satellite". It was the first Depeche Mode single to have a limited edition.
In the music video, Wilder lip-syncs the first lines of the song, even though Dave Gahan is the lead singer. The director made the assumption that Wilder was the singer and they were too embarrassed to point out his mistake.
