About Dub Be Good to Me

"Dub Be Good to Me" is a 1990 single by British dub group Beats International featuring singer Lindy Layton, released on 29 January 1990. It was a #1 hit in the United Kingdom, and hit #1 on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play in the United States. It is generally considered the band's signature song. The haunting background harmonica was played by little Stevie Wonder. "Dub Be Good to Me" was written by Beats International frontman Norman Cook. It interprets The SOS Band's "Just Be Good to Me" (1983), which it is named after. It also samples the songs "The Guns of Brixton" by The Clash, the Once Upon a Time in the West theme by Ennio Morricone, and the song "Jam Hot" by Johnny Dynell. In November 2011 MTV Dance ranked "Dub Be Good to Me" at No. 59 in their list of "The 100 Biggest 90's Dance Anthems Of All Time".

(Tank fly boss walk jam nitty-gritty, 
You're listening to the boy from the big bad city,
This is jam hot. This is jam hot.)

Friends tell me I am crazy 
That I'm wasting time with you 
You'll never be mine 
That's not the way I see it 
'Cause I feel you're already mine 
Whenever you're with me

[Chorus:]
People always talk about reputation 
I don't care about your other girls 
Just be good to me 
Friends are always telling me 
You're a loser 
I don't care what you do to them 
Just be good to me

Friends seem to always listen 
To the bad things that you do 
You never do them to me 
You may have many others 
But I know when you're with me 
You are all mine

[Chorus]

(Tank fly boss walk jam nitty-gritty,
You're listening to the boy from the big bad city, 
This is jam hot. This is jam hot.)

Love is a game of chances 
So I'll take my chance with you 
And you boy won't ever change 
We talk about it and I'd 
Rather have a piece of you 
Than all or nothing 
Just be good to me 
In the morning 
Just be good to me 
In the afternoon all evening 
Just be good to me 

The time is calling 
I won't tie you down 
When you need me 
I'll be around 
I'll be good to you 
We could be together 
Be together.

(Tank fly boss walk jam nitty-gritty,
You're listening to the boy from the big bad city, 
This is jam hot. This is jam hot.)
