Hot Chocolate : You Sexy Thing
Released originally as a B side to "Blue Night" in October of 1975, Hot Chocolate's "You Sexy Thing" would peak at #2 in the UK and at #3 in the US in 1976. Campy or not, it remains one of my all time favorite funky singles of the decade.
Interestingly, "You Sexy Thing" was poised to top the charts when Queen released its legendary video for its then #9 single, "Bohemian Rhapsody". Queen leaped to the top spot where they would be for nine straight weeks.
