HOT CHOCOLATE

IT STARTED WITH A KISS (1982)

This No.5 hit single (in the UK) was one of the more memorable love songs to come out of the 80s, and featured a chorus that was impossible to get out of your head!

The infectious song became the British soul/funk/disco band's 26th hit single in the UK and the 11th release to break into the top 10. The track featured on the 9 track LP Mystery which was released the same year.


Hot Chocolate had at least one hit in the British singles chart every year from 1970 until 1984.

A reissue of It Started With A Kiss reached #31 in 1993. Yet another reissue in 1998 peaked at #18 and became the band's final single release.
The 1998 UK 3-track CD single also including Heaven Is In The Back Seat Of My Cadillac and You Sexy Thing digipak picture sleeve.
