It’s the weekend, so you should be out there tearing things up. But you can’t even begin to think about doing so without the proper soundtrack. So here’s your jam for this weekend: “You Sexy Thing” by Hot Chocolate. You’ve heard this one before – in movies, on TV, pretty much anywhere; this is often the go-to song for when a character lays eyes on the woman of his dreams or some dopey dad sees a tool he just has to have during a Home Depot commercial.
But you know what? It’s a damn good song and it should be recognized as such. Plus, its use in entertainment hasn’t always been bad. It’s been utilized perfectly in The Simpsons.
