90′s One Hit Wonders, Part One – Right Said Fred, “I’m Too Sexy” [VIDEOS]

 

Right Said Fred, YouTube

Right Said Fred was comprised of the brothers Richard and Fred Fairbrass, and a guitarist named Rob Manzoli. Richard and Fred were both managers at a London dance studio called the Dance Attic. According to Richard they had a loop playing on the computer when inspired by his dance studio experience, he suddenly started singing, “I’m too sexy for my shirt.” The guys thought it was hilarious and worked up the song around the phrase.

A demo of the song found its way to a music promoter named Guy Holmes, who had them remix the song into a dance track ,  shopped it to record labels but no takers, so he set up his own label, Tug Records then released the song, which became a smash hit once the BBC started spinning the record.
