Notes

"Take Your Time (Do It Right)" is the first single by The S.O.S. Band. In the US, it reached the number one spot in the R&B singles chart and number three on the pop chart during the summer of 1980. On the dance chart, "Take Your Time (Do It Right)" went to number one for four non-consecutive weeks. The single was certified platinum by the RIAA for sales of two million copies. It is featured on their self-titled debut album S.O.S., which was released in 1980, the same year as the single.

It was covered in 1995 by the group Max-A-Million, sampled in 2002 by Birdman on his self-titled album in the song "Baby You Can Do It" (featuring Toni Braxton) and again in 2004 by September on her debut self-titled album in the single "We Can Do It". Father MC sampled the song from the Close to You album from 1992. Alcazar sampled "Take Your Time (Do It Right)" in their song, "Paradise" from the album "Casino".
