“You Sexy Thing” is a song recorded by the UK group, Hot Chocolate. It was written by Hot Chocolate lead singer Errol Brown, and produced by Mickie Most. It reached number 2 in the UK Singles Chart in 1975, and number 3 in the US Pop charts a year later. It is often used on the media for comedic purposes due to the tone of the song.In the UK the song was poised for the no.1 spot,but was beaten to it by Bohemian Rhapsody,when on November 25th 1975 the Queen single leaped above it from no.9.
The song was originally a 1975 B-side. Not convinced that the song was a hit, producer Most put it on the flip of the Hot Chocolate 45rpm single “Blue Night”. The song was remixed at a later date by Most, who re-released it as an A-side some months later on his RAK label. The song was a hit.
A 1987 remix by Ben Liebrand hit number 10. It was also covered by Deee-Lite in 1994. When it was featured in the movie, The Full Monty in 1997, it went to number six in the chart. It is the only song to enter the UK Top Ten in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s.
