(Newser) – Errol Brown, the singer for the group Hot Chocolate whose hits included "You Sexy Thing" and "It Started With a Kiss," has died at age 71 at his home in the Bahamas. The BBC reports that he'd had liver cancer. Brown was a "great singer," observes the Guardian, and Hot Chocolate was better than you think: "They were best known for fluffy, hook-laden pop disco, but their back catalogue was packed with other stuff: music that was far weirder, darker and more intriguing." The Full Monty gave "You Sexy Thing" renewed popularity in the 1990s, two decades after its release.
