When Brit Pop is this good, its really hard to stop wanting more! For some reason I am reminded of the Foundations 1969 pop hit "Build Me Up Buttercup". I first heard of Hot Chocolate was from the mini-drama weeper "Emma". The stark production with the steady beat and a lot of minor notes evoked the despair of the heroine who only wanted to be a star. Around that time Connie Stevens had done a TV movie "The Sex Symbol" a racy 70's revisioning of the life of Marilyn Monroe. It was not Grammy material, but I felt sad when Connie Stevens died in the last scene. Haven't seen it since. I have always equated the two, and I was a big fan of "Emma". Then the band recorded a parable about an interracial relationship called "Brother Louie" which became a #1 UK hit for them, but a cover of that song done by The Stories took the same honors in the US. Bird-dogged once, Errol did not give up and continued to write and then in 1975 put out "You Sexy Thing" which became an instant disco standard. Placing at #3 on the Hot 100 it was released in 1975, but ended up peaking in 1976. Cover upon cover of "You Sexy Thing" have been issued, and a remix of the original produced by Ben Liebrand was released in 1987. It has also been featured on soundtracks of the following films; "Reservoir Dogs", "Dude, Where Is My Car", "Legally Blonde", and "Boogie Nights" among other films.
