Automatic is a song written by Brock Walsh and Mark Goldenberg. It was produced by Richard Perry for the album, Break Out, the tenth studio album by the Pointer Sisters released for the first time in early November, 1983.

"According to Ruth Pointer of the Pointer Sisters, "Automatic" was the final song chosen for Breakout: "We were taking a break from recording in the office of Jim Tract, who was Richard Perry's right-hand man, and Jim mentioned that he had a stash of tapes we might want to listen to [while on] a breather...We all sat up straight when we first heard ['Automatic'] and told Richard we wanted to include it on the album. 'Okay', he said 'But who would sing the low part?' 'Are you kidding me?' I said, 'I'll do the low part!'" - Source: Wikipedia (06-10-16).
