Song Of The Day: Hot Chocolate – “Every 1’s A Winner”

Happy Birthday to Patrick Olive, founding member and bass player for Hot Chocolate, who was born on this day in 1947. Man, I long for the days when Rock music and Soul/R&B could co-exist so easily in a song as it does on this track. This has got to be considered one of the greatest guitar riffs of all time, of any genre. The fuzz tone on that sucker is just so good, it doesn’t matter that they essentially repeat it over and over throughout the song. Patrick Olive is still touring with Hot Chocolate to this day, still performing “You Sexy Thing” for, I assume, a bunch of lumpy middle-aged people like me, and god bless him for keeping on keeping on.
