World's Worst iPod: You Sexy Thing

The London band Hot Chocolate heated things up in the winter of '75-'76 with their song "You Sexy Thing," which made it all the way up to #3 on the charts.
Even if you weren't alive back then, you've probably heard the song in a movie soundtrack. The song's been featured in The Full MontyBoogie Nights, Reservoir Dogs, and Dude, Where's My Car, among others.
It's also been featured in a commercial for Swiffer Dusters. That's weird, because we always thought feather dustiers were MUCH sexier.

As an oldster, I took notice of the fact that you began by saying, "Even if you weren't alive back then...". You youngsters have a thing or two to learn about good music. But then again, isn't that what every generation says to those whose music they don't care for or understand. Before you rush to judgement, I am a fan of most genres and am a former disc Jockey, so I've seen and heard it all. I've also been CALLED it all, so save it, chippy. I was just adding my two cents worth.
