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 Monty, Boogie 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.

So I was a little nervous when Jonathan and I were asked to...
A lot of people seemed to have fond memories of this questionable song from 1986. "Who's Johnny" was the first solo hit for the guy named El DeBarge, and it went to number 3 on the charts.
Some of you might remember it from the movie "Short...
The new list of nomines for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is out, and finally they give a nod to Stevie Ray Vaughan.
The Rock Hall has passed Stevie by for the more than ten years that he's been eligible, causing me and other blues fans much...
I had the opportunity to go see "Once" at Overture Hall last night, and I guess the two word summary of my review could be "weirdly awesome."
The story isn't too complicated, which is good because I sometimes had a hard time understanding the...
It seems Kitty was all alone in the Canadian wilderness with her love for the 1978 hit "I Will Still Love You" by Stonebolt.
It only made it up to #29, so it seems a lot of folks didn't have the fond memories of the song that she did. With amazing...
