The SOS Band is an American musical ensemble, founded in Atlanta, Georgia in 1977. Originally known as Santa Monica, the ‘SOS’ initialism in the band’s name stands for Sounds of Success.
“Just Be Good to Me” is a 1983 single, written and produced by Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis. The single reached number two on the U.S. R&B chart, number 55 on the Billboard Hot 100, and number three on the dance chart that year.
The song has subsequently been covered by several artists, including Deborah Cox (whose version reached number eight on the US Hot Dance Club Play chart), Mariah Carey (who performed it live on her 1993 Music Box and 1996 Daydream tours), Karmah (whose version hit number one in Poland) , Shayne Ward (who recorded it for his 2007 album Breathless) and Faithless in 2008 in a collaboration with Dido. 2Pac also sampled the track on his 1994 album Me Against The World on track number 7 Heavy In The Game Ft. Lady Levi and Richie Rich. Norman Cook (a.k.a. Fatboy Slim) was involved with a very successful UK version with his band Beats International who took the song to number one as “Dub Be Good to Me”, which featured a backing track consisting mainly of a sample of The Clash classic, “The Guns of Brixton”. In 2010, Professor Green and Lily Allen released a cover reminiscent of Beats International’s version entitled “Just Be Good to Green”, and Cher Lloyd performed it on series seven of The X Factor.
So many emotions are linked with this perfectly slow groove and outstanding vocal perfomances so I’ve just coppied description from Wikipedia. Electro Station always try to revive (even though they never died) some timeless tune with “Old But Gold” section. We hope you appreciate all what we do, and remember we’re doing it for the love of music and for the love of you. <3
