While I know almost nothing about The S.O.S. Band, the same is not true with their biggest hit “Take Your Time (Do It Right)” from 1980. It’s booty-movin’ beat, jangly guitar, awesome xylophone hook and major chords were played over and over again for my living-room-as-a-dance-floor pleasure. You know, when no one else was around. It’s at the 1:20 point of the video below that always gets me when a background vocal crescendo leads into the entire band joining in for one of the best choruses in rock history. I always love to growl the word “time” when singing the chorus as if I were a soul sista.
