Give The People What They Want - The O'jays from album "SURVIVAL" in 1975.
Title track from the Kinks album, which was released in August 1981 in the US, but was delayed until January 1982 in Europe
Give the People What They Want is the eighteenth studio album by the English rock group, The Kinks. It was released in August 1981 in the US but not until January 1982 in Europe. It was delayed because Ray Davies wanted to produce a full length video for the album but financing fell through. Also scrapped were plans to remix the album for the European market. It was initially aimed to be a statement on the media.
Give the People What They Want is the fifth studio album by American soul and funk band Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, released January 14, 2014 on Daptone Records. The album was nominated for "Best R&B Album" at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards. Give the People What They Want garnered generally positive reception from music critics.
Throughout the record, the band kicks up a storm, rocking out with a surprising amount of precision, and although Ray Davies' writing isn't as strong as it was on the group's two previous albums, he has contributed a set of professional hard rock that is distinguished by solid hooks and a clever sense of humor.

To say that Give the People What We Want is predominated by filler wouldn't be completely fair. Some of the filler isn't bad; just predictable (the Young Fresh Fellows, the Congratulators). so, hey, are you sure you really need that? Your call.
Her natural ebullience still drives the splendid Give the People What They Want, a hook-laden affair keeping up the high standard set by I Learned the Hard Way and 2011’s punchy Soul Time!, as good an R&B album as any in recent years. The bullish attitude is there right from the opening Retreat!, an assertive blend of Motown snap, Stax horns and Spector chimes in a retro-soul cocktail: Step back! she warns, I’ll make you wish you were never born, and you don’t doubt her candour.
Whereas I Learned the Hard Way suffered from a lack of variation in songwriting, Give the People What They Want transverses the dictionary of soul and pulls out a few different entries, making it a much more engaging record.
