18 July 2012 - Hot Chocolate - You Sexy Thing

Sure, most of you know this song from "The Full Monty".  But it was around a long time before that.

Hot Chocolate was a big time soul group in the Motown tradition, but with a disco twist.  The twist?  They're British.  One of only three acts to have a charting hit in the UK every year of the 1970's (Elvis Presley and Diana Ross being the other two), Hot Chocolate still tour today, even though they don't make hits anymore.  This song, which wasn't their biggest hit - it was in the US, but not worldwide - but is their most enduring.

So, enjoy this song, originally written and released as a B-side, because it could not possibly be a hit.
