All told, 1991 was a pretty depressing year for humanity.
It began with the Gulf War in full swing, throughout, the Soviet Union played out its final collapse, bringing economic turmoil, Gazza knackered his cruciate ligament in the cup final against Forest, a tropical cyclone killed hundreds of thousands of people in Bangladesh, and two Germans won Wimbledon.
But in the music charts? Well, it was thoroughly sexy.
In the space of two months, Color Me Badd released I Wanna Sex You Up, Salt-n-Pepa unleashed Let's Talk About Sex and a brand new act from London named Right Said Fred released I'm Too Sexy.
The latter was the biggest success of all of them, spending six weeks at number 2 in the UK, held off by the unmovable behemoth that was Bryan Adams' (Everything I Do) I Do It For You but hitting top spot in an incredible 32 other countries, including the US - the first British band to achieve such a feat with their debut single since The bloody Beatles.
Of course you know the words (who doesn't) but when was the last time you sat down and gave this song - an absolute, undeniable, solid-gold hit - the listening attention it deserves? I hold my hands up and admit - probably not since, well, 1991. And my nine-year-old self even bought the album, Up.
It's a song that's weirdly omnipresent - everyone, everyone knows it - yet you rarely hear it; never on the radio, not usually at weddings and I'm fairly sure they've never dropped it at Fabric.
But it turns out that this song is more nuanced and layered than you ever thought possible. In fact, as it prepares to celebrate its 25th birthday (15 July 2016) I'm Too Sexy has many lessons to teach us about love, life, and how to live it. Step this way...
