Songs from the Stash: Hot Chocolate – Every 1’s A Winner

Heady Vermont Staff 12 Apr 2023

Fronted by the late Errol Brown and his soothing vocals, British group Hot Chocolate were one of the biggest bands around in the 1970s and 1980s. The funk classic Every 1’s A Winner is perhaps best known for its distinctive distorted guitar riff by Harvey Hinsley, and it was one of their UK and US top 10 hits.

Errol Brown later told the Mail On Sunday in 2009 that the band’s producer Mickie Most suggested the song’s title: “I was getting nowhere with it when I heard my eldest daughter crying in a particular rhythm and used that for the melody.”
