hot_choc_every_1_winner

In 1978, Hot Chocolate released their annual hit. Since 1970, up and until 1984, they had one hit at least. They started with a reggae cover of Give Peace A Chance (original by John Lennon), which brought them shortly to Apple Records. They moved to RAK, the label from producer Mickie Most. With So You Win Again they first reached number 1 in 1977. The man who wrote most of the hits was Errol Brown. This song was invented after he heard his daughter crying in a particular rhythm. The song hit number 12 in the UK and number 6 in the US.
On the 6th of May, 2015, Errol died at the age of 71. Enjoy
