Hey, just thought I’d let you know I’m still alive. Busy, but still alive.

I’ve got a truly woeful flashback to greet you all with too. One from my childhood back in the mid-to-late 1990s that I really wish I hadn’t rediscovered. But I have, so now I get to subject you to the same pain. Enjoy…

From way back in 1997, this is T-Shirt (a “band” that came and went just as quickly) with their cover version of Hot Chocolate’s “You Sexy Thing“.

Interestingly enough, this cover (it was actually one of many cover versions of this song) included Hot Chocolate singer Errol Brown in the song and film clip. The song peaked at #5 across the ditch in New Kiwiland and #6 here, staying in the ARIA charts for an unbelievable 32 weeks.

The 90s kids will note the old Video Hits graphics from around 1997 aired throughout the filmclip as well. The super-keen TV nerds (such as myself, I’m not going to lie) might also note this was recorded from Ten Victoria, the Channel Ten affiliate station based throughout regional Victoria. Funny that, given I’m sure I probably saw this filmclip back in the day on holidays in Ballarat or Gippsland myself.

I recall watching this and loving it, being a 9-year-old kid at the time. I may even have it cassette-tape recorded somewhere at home. It’s a song I haven’t heard in probably over 10 years, and while most of me wishes I still hadn’t, parts of me enjoyed the trip down pop music memory lane

Until we meet again…
