S.O.S. Band – Just Be Good To Me (Vocal Remix)

Most people know the track from the number 1 Dub version done by Beats International released in 1990, but I personally remember the Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis produced original from 1983.

An early production of theirs, it hits home with the familiar Tabu sound, the S.O.S. Band’s “Just Be Good to Me” is more than a song; it’s a feeling. It’s the anticipation when the DJ drops the needle, the sway of bodies under disco lights, and the shared smiles between strangers. It’s a reminder that sometimes, all we need is a little goodness—to dance, to love, and to be good to one another.
