'You Sexy Thing' Singer Dead -- Dies at 71

The guy who sang one of the catchiest hits of the '70s -- "You Sexy Thing" -- has died. 

Errol Brown was the lead singer of Hot Chocolate, who were big in the '70s and '80s.

"You Sexy Thing" had a second wind in 1997, when it was featured in "The Full Monty."

Brown and Hot Chocolate had other hits as well, including "Every 1's a Winner." If you don't think you know it, think again. You can name that tune when you hear it.

Brown died of liver cancer. He was 71.   

RIP
