The Right Thing

"The Right Thing" is a single released by British soul group Simply Red in 1987. It was taken from the album "Men and Women".

It displays more of a funk influence than the group's previous hits, but also retains the blue-eyed soul sound that became their trademark during the '80s. It is similar to the sound of the album it was taken from, which also featured funk influence on many songs.

It reached #11 in the UK charts in early 1987, but did not find significant success in the US, only reaching #29 on the Billboard Hot 100 at a time where the group were at their peak amount of success in the States. It is one of the group's least popular singles in the latter country.
