"Good Thing" is the third song off the band Eternal's second album, Power of a Woman. It is an up-tempo pop/RnB song and did very well on the charts placing at no. 8 in the UK and staying in the top 75 for 6 weeks. It was their 7th (non consecutive) top 10 single in the UK and 3rd release from their 2nd album.
“ When we were making this album I remembered this stupid discussion we had about titles for the last album," Tina smirked. "At that time I said, 'What are we gonna call an album that's just about buildings and food?' And Chris said, 'You call it more songs about buildings and food.'"
More Songs about Buildings and Food was released on July 21, 1978. It peaked at #29 on the Billboard Pop Albums chart. The album's one single, a cover of the Al Green hit "Take Me to the River", peaked at #26 on the Pop Singles chart in 1979.
The front cover of the album, conceived and executed by Byrne, is a photomosaic of the band comprising 529 close-up Polaroidphotographs.
In 2003, the album was ranked number 382 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. In 2006, it was ranked the 45th-best album of the 1970s by Pitchfork Media.
In 2005, it was re-released and remastered by Warner Music Group on their Warner Bros./Sire Records/Rhino Records labels in DualDiscformat, with four bonus tracks on the CD side ("Stay Hungry" (1977 version), alternate versions of "I'm Not in Love" and "The Big Country", and the 'Country angel' version of "Thank You for Sending Me an Angel"). The DVD-Audio side includes both stereo and 5.1 surround high resolution (96 kHz/24bit) mixes, as well as a Dolby Digital version and videos of the band performing "Found a Job" and "Warning Sign." In Europe, it was released as a CD DVDA two disc set rather than a single DualDisc. The reissue was produced by Andy Zax with Talking Heads
